Yes I have figured out how to manually create this link and you are right the id is necessary in the link. Before something happened I would upload a file in jdownloads and then it would show up in the downloads lists and this link would be next to the title name. Now it is a little time consuming to have to create a link for every download. The hot-link protection is enabled. We send users results to the work they send us through this link for protection and then there are some users that can just log in and download these files themselves instead of me sending them a link. So for easy access we send the link. If you know where I can go to have this link automatically be created again please let me know and I appreciate all your help.
