It all depends on how you have set your planned and developed your solution.

The best way would be to have your customers table, with a unique ID for each customer. Then when your customers place an order you write the order to an 'orders' table, which also contains the unique ID or download path of the products.

That way, when the customer logs in to the customer area of your store you can retrieve the orders for that customer by setting a session variable as the unique customer ID and then using that session variable when querying the orders table (i.e. only pulling back the orders for that customer).

Hope that helps?

Thanks
Ian

on my download center page the images on "thumbnail" is displayed with ecart's own tag using <?php echo $eCart1->DisplayInfo("Thumbnail"); ?>. And next to it i got download button, and in the database i got a column called "ProductLocation" for each images. Now i use Digital File 2 to download each specific images from location "ProductLocation". However i manage only download the first image on first row of image and its location.

how do customize the download form that will trigger the download for each image specified.

i am still stuck with this issue. How to download a file from a thumbnail with specified location. I am kind a newbie to PHP so any help will appreciated.

I manage to display the image from thumbnail <?php echo $eCart1->DisplayInfo("Thumbnail"); ?> and i want to put a download link to every image to the Row location. How could i successfully make a link between images and location?

i have seen that people are using separated download.php file to do this but i don't know how. Is there more less PHP way to get the file downloaded?
