Thread: Download Button

  1. #1

    Default Download Button

    I'm using Designer Pro but this is a web question so posting here.

    I've got this to work but feel there might be a better way. I put the code shown in a placeholder and separately uploaded the image via FTP outside of Xara. Any thoughts?

    Here is the webpage https://www.feel-good.today/downloads/for_anxiety.htm

    Click image for larger version.

    A link can be added to anything in the Xara design.

    Download the image into your page with Import from web address: www.feel-good.today/downloads/anxietyrelief.jpg (N.B., do not include the https://).
    Resize and position.
    Select it and in Web Properties > Link > Link to web or email address, add https://www.feel-good.today/download...20Hypnosis.mp3.

    If you do that, it opens a 2nd browser tab and plays it - I know you can then right-click and "save as" - but I'm trying to remove that step (believe it or not, not everyone knows that can be done!). i.er. I've done that with the rectangular button next to the image icon.

    Thanks for trying - keep going :-)
    Bottom line is I have a solution - but it's dirty as I have to remember to upload the image manually via FTP - (I'll have to a a "note to self" in the side of the file :-) ).

    If you could even figure out how to avoid the image issue that would be good.

    I have seen a solution somewhere, one of Egg's I think.

    Can't remember anything about that Acorn, but that's far from unusual.

    However try this:
    <a href="myfile.pdf" download="myfile.pdf">Click to Download</a>
    Not my solution, here's the source:

    Thanks Egg ,that's kind of what I have right now, the problem is imbedding it in an icon or button. right now I have to upload the image to the folder separately.

    Yes, I did do this a while back. That Acorns got a far better memory than mine

    Unfortunately I don't have the original xar file so I can't remember how I applied the code to the button.

    Noooooo! Remember, sleep on it :-)

    I just tried putting the placeholder text on the 2nd image of a button i.e. on the mouseover layer, but that did not work - maybe that triggers an idea?

    You can do it (again).
