Hi, Happy new year! The squeeze form is a different kind of functionality that requires a slightly different structure than the standard download button of the core plugin. The idea is to keep the original functionality still in place for users to keep using those. Then additionally they can put squeeze forms where they want to (for some downloads).
Maybe the description of this addon on our following page can be improved.
I would be interested to hear which paragraph from this page made you think that way so I can maybe rephrase it a little bit to make it more clear.
Yes, the password feature needs an HTML form to be submitted. That requires the HTML “form” element (it can’t be done with a simple URL).
That shortcode creates a Button Type element which can’t be a link at the same time. The button can submit a form (which is required for the standard use).
Instead, use the following option to create a custom link so you can use a text link and then it gives you to the option to customize your text link how you want to:
The download button should already have CSS classes. We do have a few different shortcodes so if you tell me which one you are using then I should be able to take a look at it.
Any user visible labels can be customized by having a custom translation for your site. All the front-end messages and labels come from the translation file.
You can create a new translation file for your site that will use the labels that you specify in the translation file.November 23, 2020 at 11:19 pm in reply to: How can I have password form errors display in page? #1714
The actual squeeze form needs to submit the name and email details of the user which needs a form submission. So this is not possible for the standard squeeze form.
You can perhaps use the 4th template which has a link option to trigger the popup containing the squeeze form. So the initial trigger is a link to show the squeeze form. Try the template 4 option to see how it works:
The option to create a custom download link (instead of using the standard button) already exists:
If you are talking about changing the plugin’s behavior whereby you want the download button inside a fancy display to be a link, then that won’t work. A link cannot submit any information when clicked (a button can). A button can submit the form with other hidden information that is required by the plugin to offer some of the functionalities.October 20, 2020 at 1:44 am in reply to: Style ONLY the “Download” button that opens the popup #1703
I have added a CSS class for that button element so that button for template 4 can be targeted using CSS. Please update the addon to v1.9.8 and you should see the following new CSS class in that button:
I have updated the addon so it can show the success message for template for (When the “Deliver the Download via Email” option is enabled). Please upgrade to v1.9.7 of the Squeeze form addon for it.
It usually means that the server’s PHP RAM is needs to be increased to handle that large file download. For situations like this, it’s better to use solutions like the following:
Are you getting the error at the start of the download or after the download starts? Also, it is worth giving it a try after clearing the browser cache for this.
Maybe a download ID can be added in the CSS class so it can be targeted more specifically using CSS. Which shortcode are you using?
The plugin doesn’t really convert it the way you are thinking. It calls various sanitation functions of WordPress (for security) which converts the space characters.
It’s due to how PHP streaming works. The secure download requires handling of download via PHP streaming (not the standard browser download that you normally use). So if you want the secure PHP streaming downloads, the file names need to be corrected.
WP Media library won’t allow uploading of certain file types for security reasons. The following addon can be used to override that limitation so more file types can be uploaded via the media library’s upload feature:
That’s not how a form really works. Each form (if you want to capture data from it) needs to have all the fields that you intend to capture. So if you want to capture the email address from the other squeeze forms also, then the field needs to be there.
No, it doesn’t have an option for it at the moment.
