Open source / Freeware WordPress Plugin

My first WordPress plugin: wp-downloadbtn

Yes, it had to happen sooner or later; my first WordPress plugin.

I can make it bigger then it is, but I won’t.
It’s just a download button, it works in WordPress 2.0.7 and WordPress 2.1.
I use it in combination with Download Counter WordPress Plugin

Download WordPress Plugin – Download Button v1.0

Usage instructions

  • Download the zip file and decompress into wp-content/plugins.
  • Go to your Plugins screen in the WordPress admin area, and activate “Download Buttonâ€?.
  • In the code view, you get a “DownloadBtn” where you can fill in url, title, subtitle

Code example

This is how the Download Button looks in html:


The icons I used for the Download button is not my own design, I sampled from these two:
Silk icon by Mark James for providing a box.
Drunkey Love icons by Kevin Wetzels for providing a arrow


Every product can improve, so here a couple of mine:

  • counter integrated into button
  • Place a button in TinyMCE (default wysiwyg editor)
  • Long description possible??
  • ….

Do you have some, just post a comment here.
