How to Upload Files to WordPress for Download
While you can use WordPress media library to handle files in some extent, it doesn’t really provide an easy way to list those files for download on your site. Using Shared Files you can easily create such list of downloadable files.
All you have to do is to follow these steps:
- Download the free version of Shared Files and install it on your WordPress site
- Add some files from the file management
- Insert the shortcode [shared_files] to any page or post
Download the free version of Shared Files
You can download the plugin from here or install it directly to your site from Plugins page in the WordPress admin area.
Add some files from the file management
Add the files you would like to provide for download from the file management. You’ll find the file management in the WordPress admin area under Shared Files, after you have installed the plugin.
Insert the shortcode to any page or post
Insert the shortcode [shared_files] to the content editor of any page or post and the list of downloadable files will appear.
