In case there is an expert regarding this sort of thing here …
I have some old (NWN and PnP) zipped files that I wanted to upload and have a web link allow to download them if people wanted to. E.g. Zip a pdf file, upload to Dropbox (for example) and then have a link from my Wix website linking to that zipped pdf file I have uploaded for people to download and read offline at their own leisure.
I had done this a while back, but for some reason, I seem unable to do this lately. For instance, I have one such zipped file, which is available for download from my blog page, but when I try to add the same link to my Wix webpage, it fails to allow the Direct Download button to work.
All files links that once worked from the Wix website now fail to work with any Direct Download button after being redirected to the hosting site. I even tried adding fresh Dropbox links, but they all fail to allow the Direct Download buttons to work.
Bottom line, have things changed (in general) so that we can no longer add “available for all to see” files to our hosting areas to be able to attach links to?
And, does anyone have a workaround for such if this is the case? i.e. Does anyone else have files stored on a host site (like Dropbox), which they can then add permanent links in their website to allow downloads?
I did find an “app” that looked as though I could “sign in” via the app that could be attached to the Wix website, but I did not want to leave an app that would seem to be always logged into the account to “allow” such downloads.
Is achieving such a task that hard nowadays?
Thanks in advance.
