Download Codes

Hey guys, I was wondering if it's possible to incorporate this WP plugin as an HTML widget or if there is perhaps an alternative:

I am setting up a music blog that showcases some of our releases and I wanted to have some kind of download code generator that would be nifty in making certain downloads exclusive.

Please let me know, thanks for your time.

Hello John,

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like that would work with Yola, as it is a plugin created for WordPress.

I'm sure there's an alternative that will give you an HTML code to put on your Yola site. But could you explain a little bit more about what you want? I'm not sure that I understand completely what you want.

Sincerely,
Nathan

Nathan, just checking in... how are things going? The download links are in HTML format... Is there a way to generate codes on an as needed basis?

Hey John,

Lately, I've been very busy. I haven't been helping as much as I usually do. Sorry for this delay! The PHP script is going to be a little more work than I thought, but I can get it done. I will probably make a little page for you to go to and you can just click "Generate a code" and it will show a code for you to give to someone.

Kind regards,
Nathan

By the way, how much characters do you want in each generated code? And, do you want numbers, letters, or both?

Numbers will be good... about 8 characters.

It's going good right now, I am creating the MySQL database for the codes and stuff. But for this to work, the download links will have to be on the page with the form because of the PHP. (Unfortunately, PHP isn't supported on Yola) I might be able to make some JavaScript function through an iframe though.

Kind regards,
Nathan

Sounds good, I can just load the MP3 files into one RAR file and make it as one link, perhaps that would be easier. So when consumer types download code into the box, a link then appears in the same box for the entire album.

Would this be better?

Yeah, that would certainly be easier :) I will have a little page for you to go to, and all you have to do is click on "Generate Code" and it will show a little code on the page. Then you can just copy it and give it to someone, and once they type it in and click Submit, it will show the link to the RAR file.

Hi John,

It's going great! :) PHP is a little harder, though, as I'm a PHP beginner. I'm sorry for the wait.

Also, could you let me know what browser you are using? I suggest Google Chrome, Safari, or Mozilla Firefox for this, as it wont look that good Internet Explorer, except Internet Explorer 9.

Kind regards,
Nathan

Nathan, thanks a lot. I have only one link for each RAR file, one link per album.

Nathan, is it possible to generate a bulk list? For example, when I click the generate code button, is it possible that a big list of codes shows up or I'm able to download a text file of bulk codes...

I wont be able to make a text file for you to download but I might be able to make the bulk list. Also to copy a code all you will have to do is press on a "copy" button and it'll be copied to your clipboard.

John,

Could you email all of the links that you want to have the code on to
support [at] weebuild.biz so you don't have to post them all here? Thanks.
