One of the most frequent requests I get for my vanilla JS pocket guides is to add a “Download All” link so that buyers can easily download all of the guides in all of the formats.
As of today, you can now do that.
One of the reasons I held off on doing this is because I want people to be able to just click a link to their guide of choice on their mobile device and start reading. iOS doesn’t provide a native way to unzip compressed files and do this, and I didn’t want to upload the same files in both zipped and unzipped formats.
Then I discovered the EDD Download All plugin.
It has no documentation, but works ok and does what its called. Unfortunately, though, it doesn’t provide a way to add a “Download All” link to the confirmation emails Easy Digital Downloads sends out.
I created a forked version that…
- Adds the missing documentation.
- Supports “Download All” links in the confirmation emails.
- Excludes external pages/products that aren’t downloadable files.
- Supports automatic updates via the GitHub Updater plugin.
If you’re using Easy Digital Downloads and want to add this functionality to your site, grab it on GitHub.
