UPDATE: It turned out that this plugin was difficult to manage as were both “Download Monitors” and “Drain Hole”. I am now using Downloads Manager (with an s). It works like a dream but there is one thing I am not sure about. Files are stored within the plug-in directory. That may be a security hole – I need to check that out. So if you take this route to get going, back up well!
It’s easy to download and install. There’s just one trick – to add “download_page” at the end of the post. But change the ” ” to . I couldn’t put the square brackets here or the download page would come in the middle of the post.
Instead, I also downloaded the plugin called FT Signature Manager and I’ve added the link to the download manager in my signature so I don’t have to remember reach time I write a post.
And while I was at it, I downloaded a plugin to allow people to convert a post to pdf. I am not a pdf fan, but pdf is better than the long messy printouts that comes with printing from a browser.
I hope you find the plugins useful. Any comments and feedback will be useful as I learn to make my blog more functional.
The first document that I added is a 6 stop ‘itinerary for exploring the vistas of appreciative inquiry and positive psychology for people who want to explore the opportunities and challenges of this paradigm.
