Hi me again,

I have a download page on my website

Users can download application forms for the events that we hold.

I have 6 buttons which are connected to PDF files hosted on the server. I have used File Manipulation to upload files with great success but my downloads will not work.

I have followed the guides from

and tried adhoc to see if I could get them to work.

the PHP code for one of the download is

if(isset($_POST["heavyweight_button"]) || isset($_POST["heavyweight_button_x"])){
WA_DFP_DownloadFile("WA_DownloadResult1", "documents/", "2014heavyweightform.pdf", "Heavy_Weights.pdf", false, false, false, "", "", "", "");

The files are in the documents folder

the button code is

<label>heavyweight form</label>
<input type="submit" name="heavyweight_button" id="heavyweight_button" value="download" >

Thanks in advance

Login is not required to download these forms

send a copy of the page please so i can see the full page code in context. the small snippet looks like it should work as long as there is a form tag around the submit button, tough to tell without seeing the full page code.
