    Hi guys,

    I want to offer a PDF brochure from a WP website. Is there a way to offer the PDF to download directly from the site without going via Mediafire etc?

    Much obliged for your help,

    James :)

    Yes, but also I assume you got their email address first, and sent them the link to the download in the confirmation email? first?

    I would like to capture their emails then give them the PDF if possible. is there a plugin for this? Have looked, but not found much.

    You can use easy digital downloads, then cloak the link with pretty link to obscure the real download link for security, let me know if you need help James2, I'm always ready to help a friend.
