Substituting a Button for a Server-File-Name Link

Substituting a Button for a Server-File-Name Link


I have created a page in a website where users can listen to the songs that the website owner uploads. To that effect, I display the songs' Server file name that, when clicked, plays the corresponding song stored in a directory.

Is there any way to use a button instead of the Server File Name link?

Thank you for your attention.

use the button as the link text

<a href="<server file name>"><input type="button" name="download" id="download" value="Download" /></a>

Your code works. You can change the button text as well.

Many thanks
