File Download Center

File Download Center

I am trying to find an easy way to setup a Download Center page that will allow unregistered user to download pdf files. I currently just have links pointing to the files, but figured since I have DFP available to me that I could take advantage of the features such as tracking downloads and such. I also like the idea of making the files unlinkable from the internet and require the visitor to actually come to the page and download the files.

I went through the documentation linked up to e-cart on how to create a Download Center, but don't really want to get that detailed as there is no charge for the files and most.

Suggestions?

You could Use Digital File Pro Download Server Behavior, but first you will need to set up a form and download button, and use that as the trigger for your download.

Thanks for the quick reply. Would I have to create a seperate behavior and link to file for each seperate file? If so, that would take some time as I have like 100+ pdf files broken down into a couple different groups. Currently I just have them setup by year uaing Spry Tabs.

Do you have the names to these pdfs files stored in a database.
If so, you probably could use one Download Server Behavior.

No, I do not, but I could very easily, I think. Can you point me in the right direction IF I was able to have the file names stored in a database?

If you have your file names in a database, then you first need to create a record set to pull the names from the database. Then you will need to create a drop down menu that lists all your files (make sure to set the value to the name of your file). And then apply Digital File Pro Download Server behavior and set the file name to the select list.


I have attached a file with an example that could show you an example.

Let me know if you have any further questions.
