File download link
On this page:
The file_download_link tag is both a single tag and a container tag. Thus it may be used as an opening and closing pair:
<txp:file_download_link> ...containing statements... </txp:file_download_link>
When used as a single tag, Textpattern will replace the tag with a download link to the file being downloaded. As a container, it will assign the link to the given text or tag, while the single tag outputs the file’s plain URL.
Tag will accept the following attributes (case-sensitive):
- Specifies which file to display by its
filenameas shown on the Files administration panel.
- Specifies the
id, assigned at upload of the file, to display. Can be found on the Files administration panel.
id takes precedence over
filename. If neither is defined and the tag is not used within the context of a file, nothing is returned.
Example 1: Provide a link to download file #4
<txp:file_download_link id="4"> <txp:file_download_name /> [<txp:file_download_size format="mb" decimals="2" />] </txp:file_download_link>
Makes a link to the given file (#4) comprising its file name and size.
