Setup & Installation

For this plugin to work correctly, you have to use an improved EDD Theme, otherwise, the new text field below the downloads page will not appear.

E.g. Vendd version 1.2.3 does not contain this file, you need therefore to use an alternative version of Vendd where you will have to replace two pages in Vendd with our own new pages. We have therefore added two pages which need to be updated in Vendd (either you overwrite them or create a clone of Vendd and replace those two files).

After updating the improved EDD Theme, follow the steps below:

a) Ensure your EDD store theme contains the following two pages which we will provide in the Zip file you download. Or alternatively, use our Vendd-PS theme version (Vendd Theme which includes the two updated pages):

  • taxonomy-download_category.php
  • taxonomy-download_tag.php

What will happen, is that we add a webhook do_action( 'edd_after_downloads_loop' ); on the download category and tag pages which will make our new text field appear.

b) Install the EDD Landing pages for Categories and Tags Plugin in your Easy Digital Downloads website. You can simply upload the plugin via File upload or via FTP into the plugin folder.
