Hello, we are having an issue similar to what qwik3r reported: when people click in the download link, it shows an “Invalid download link”. I investigated the source code and the problem is that by some reason, the plugin is not registering the people data in the db. It just send the email with the download link, which is invalid because it doesnt exists in the db… Also, I found it’s generating these php error whenever anybody complete the download form:

[14-Jun-2014 01:04:27] Error Unknown column ‘secret_key’ in ‘where clause’ de la base de datos de WordPress para la consulta SELECT * FROM te_sad_users WHERE secret_key = ‘gE3KyxIMJDpwaaHamPLDEBPM’ AND deleted = ‘0’ realizada por require(‘wp-blog-header.php’), require_once(‘wp-load.php’), require_once(‘wp-config.php’), require_once(‘wp-settings.php’), do_action(‘init’), call_user_func_array, subscribedownload_class->front_init

and in the wp-admin folder there are other lots of errors detailing that column secret_key wasnt found. It looks like the tables are created only the first time, and the plugin is not checking whether it’s the first time or an upgrade. So, that’s why it lacks a column?

I solved this issue by issuing this command in phpmyadmin: ALTER TABLE `wp_sad_users` ADD `secret_key` VARCHAR CHARACTER SET latin1 COLLATE latin1_general_cs NOT NULL AFTER `email`;

This worked for me and solved the “Invalid download link”. Hope this helps others to bypass this problem. Best regards to everyone

Hi. THanks for info. You didn’t have to do such trick. You only had to reactivate the plugin. :-)

PS: It is strange, I don’t see badge “purchased” near your username.

@ichurakov: thanks for the thumbs up. BTW you dont see the purchased badge because I didn’t purchase the plugin. I offer consulting services for WordPress sites and I’m representing an user who actually purchased the item. :) Best regards

Hello Developer,

Could you please tell me how I can display the download box in a popup ? I don’t want to add a download box statically in my page

Thanks,

M

Hello – would this plugin shortcode work within another plugin shortcode?

I am trying to set up a page where users have to first share the page on facebook to unlock the content, then sign up with email to download the file – would this work with a plugin like this: http://codecanyon.net/item/share-locker/3943165

Thanks.

ichurakov

I think you need ask author of those plugin. Any shortcode in WordPress can be placed in areas which support shorcodes. If his/her plugin support shortcode, you can do it.

Hi, I have been using a plugin called ‘Email Before Download’ which requires both the ‘Contact Form 7’ and ‘Wordpress Download Monitor’ plugins to work. I don’t like the fact that it is dependant on other plugins?

I hope you can answer a few pre-sales questions.

Does your plugin require any other plugins to function?

I want to use the plugin to capture customer details when they enquire about a pricelist. The pricelist would be offered via a free download link once they enter their name and email and receive an email with the link. Where would I upload the pricelist? Is it stored in my Wordpress Media folder or another location?

I don’t want the plugin to appear as a subscriber plugin because all my customer wants is a free copy of the pricelist, not necessarily to subscribe. Can I remove/edit all references to the word ‘subscribe’?

Looks like I can set temporary links that expire in ‘x’ days. Does this make it impossible for a user to track the original URL?

So if I have a Mailchimp account then every user who requests a pricelist will have their name and email address captured to my mailchimp where I can follow up these users as potential leads…is this correct?

Looking forward to your reply. Regards

ichurakov

Hi. Thanks for interest in the plugin.

1) My plugin requires only WordPress. :-)

2) File can be located wherever you want. You just need to know its URL. Please look how you insert shortcode: [sdfile url="http://download-url-here"].

3) You can change wording through WP dashboard. Plesae look demo. It doesn’t have word “subscibe”. :-)

4) Temp link works through redirection. If you are good in web-admin you can find original URL. If your pricelist is opened in browser (for example, your pricelist is PDF) – user can see original URL. If your pricelist is downloaded (for example, it is ZIP), it is possible too, but more difficult.

5) Correct.

Is there anyway to mask the download url or have that link expire? I don’t want people to be able to copy the url and transmit it. I know that the link in the email expires, but I’m talking somehow generating the end url to expire. I am using amazon s3. I know they offer expiring links but not sure how to tie this with that.

ichurakov

Unfortunately, plugin doesn’t support integration with Amazon S3.

Hi I assume this would require double opt in via Aweber or can an Aweber web form be embedded using source code? Thanks

ichurakov

It works with AWeber through their API, so double opt-in can’t be deactivated.

Hi There,

Great plugin, thanx

One question, where can I put the download file? I want my clients to download a pdf file…

Cheers,

Yvo

ichurakov
Hi. Thanks for pruchasing the plugin. You can upload your PDF-file to your server and use shortcode:
[sdfile url="http://download-url-here"]
SnappyWebdesign

ichurakov

You can put shortcode into page/post content.

Hi Ichurakov,

It looks a great plugin. One pre sale question. Does this plugin work with multiple subscription lists? Example we have multiple lists within iContact and want someone to subscribe and be added to one list for a survey, and another list for a download? We dont want them to be added generically to the database but to seperate mailing lists. Is that possible?

Thanks

ichurakov

Hi. Nope. Only e-mail can be added only to one list.

By looking at the demo, this plugin is having great features. Before I purchase I have a question. In the demo I have opted for the download. After clicking the submit I have received 2 emails. 1 is with the download link and 2nd one is with the email confirmation link.

I would like to know whether it is possible to send the download link only after confirmation. I mean to say first I need to send the confirmation email, once the user confirms the email address then I want to send the download link.

Was it possible?

ichurakov

Hi. Second e-mail (with confirmation link) come not from my plugin, but from one of supported autoresponders (MailChimp, for exampe). Download link is sent without confiramtion because it is not necessary – if user enter fake e-mail, he can’t get download link. ;-)

One more pre-sales question

I have an existing online form whose functionality I’m trying to duplicate to the extent possible. The form requires five pieces of information (email, name, phone etc) and you can choose none, some or all of, currently, nine pdfs to download (for free). After filling out the form, checking your choices and hitting OK the files are sent via email to the address given and a record is kept of the transaction (who and what).

Can your WP plugin approach this or should I keep on looking?

ichurakov

Nope.

Great plugin, many thanks.

I want to be able to have a number of different downloads on my website, will the plugin allow multiple files?

Thanks Dan

ichurakov

Hi Dan. Thanks for purchasing the the plugin. You can use shortocode [sdfile url="http://download-url-here"] as many time as you want. If you want to download several files at once, unfortunately, there is no such option. I only can recommend to zip all required files into one archive.

Hello again Ivan. I’m having a new issue with the plugin, but it’s surely a situation you can fix. When you have lots of subscribers (29k in our case) the export to CSV feature stop working with a php memory error because the list is so huge that overflow the allowed limits:

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 83 bytes) in /home/xx/public_html/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 1941

This is happenning because your subscribedownload-csv action is making only one query without pagination, thus making the 29k rows in the table overflow the PHP memory.

Our PHP memory limit is 128 MB, and I found that increasing it to 256 MB is enough to allow the full query to work well. But, in a heavy duty website with several simultaneous visitors and several spam bots lurking around, and only 2 GB total RAM, would be nicer to be able to set the memory limit to 128 or lower to avoid memory peaks in the server.

Do you think you can split the query in batches of, i.e, 600 rows each and build a file available for download? This file should include a random portion in the filename to avoid smart bots to download the lists.

Thanks!
