Hỏi đáp

Where do I enter the description of a file?

The description stored at the file in the Media Library itself is used as the description. You can edit it in 2 ways:

  • Open the file in the Media Library for editing. There you will find the field “Description”. Enter the desired description here.
  • Or open this editing mask via the pencil at the file in the block you have created.

Is there a limit to the number of files?

No, there are no limitations.

Can I use the block in my theme?

The block can basically be used in any theme that supports Gutenberg blocks. If this is the case for your theme, you have to ask your theme developer.

Can I change the file icons?

The plugin provides a small number of icons for output in the web page. If you want to change or add them, you can do it with custom CSS.

Example for another general icon:
ul.downloadlist-list li:before { content:”\f497″; }

Example of a specific icon for PDF files:
ul.downloadlist-list li.file_pdf:before { content:”\f190″; }

Does the plugin also support Elementor or other PageBuilders?

No. The plugin is intended solely for the Gutenberg editor and will not be extended to other PageBuilders.

This plugin is even better than the built-in single download link block since it takes its link text from the media title instead of the media filename. Thank you, Thomas!

Interestingly this block doesn't display anything if placed inside another block (I tried Kadence rows and sections, a Gutenberg column and a Stackable column). Could be very useful if this bug is fixed. No settings to hide/show display elements but easy to do with CSS. EDIT: the issue with nested blocks was fixed, and other options like hiding file sizes and hiding icons were added. This is now a solid choice for creating a simple download list.
