This plugin requires Easy Digital Downloads. It’s aimed at developers/clients who need to show a list of featured downloads.
- Provides a template tag so finely-tuned placement of featured downloads in your theme is possible.
- Provides a shortcode which will simply list all the featured downloads, without the need to enter any IDs.
- Provides a simple interface for managing featured downloads in the WordPress admin. A “feature download” checkbox will be added to each download edit/publish screen as well as the quick edit boxes. At a glance you’ll also be able to see which downloads have been featured on your website from the main download listing.
Add the “featured” attribute to the existing [downloads] shortcode provided by Easy Digital Downloads:
Template Tag Usage
The following code can be used to show the featured downloads anywhere in your theme:
echo do_shortcode( '[downloads featured="yes"]' );
You can include any other attributes supported by the [downloads] shortcode.
Building your own Query
To build your own query using WP_Query you can use the
meta_key parameter with a value of
edd_feature_download. The following example builds a simple unordered list with all the featured downloads.
<?php $args = array( 'post_type' => 'download', 'meta_key' => 'edd_feature_download', ); $featured_downloads = new WP_Query( $args ); if( $featured_downloads->have_posts() ) : ?> <ul> <?php while( $featured_downloads->have_posts() ) : $featured_downloads->the_post(); ?> <li> <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" title="<?php the_title(); ?>"> <?php the_title(); ?> </a> </li> <?php endwhile; ?> </ul> <?php endif; wp_reset_postdata(); ?>
- Upload entire
/wp-content/plugins/directory, or just upload the ZIP package via ‘Plugins > Add New > Upload’ in your WP Admin
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- Feature your downloads and then use either the included template tag or shortcode to show the featured downloads anywhere on your website.
