hey
I need help for, because I want to make a download page in my website.
I thought of this before, to make links in the page, to go to the download site of what ever but I realy cant be bothered.

So is there a chance that I could do it for my self?

If you can't be bothered to simply put links to another site's download page, I'm not sure there's much change you can be bothered to put links to files you'd like to offer for download on your site either...

How complicated are you trying to get (perhaps post examples from other sites that are doing something similiar to what you want to do)? This sort of thing can be very simple or very complicated... it all depends.

"This is that i made to downlod it, right chlick the screen > save as target > and well save it where you want it and it will download for you"

yeah. All you do is point the link to the file you want downloaded. there's no special trick to it
Code: [ Select ]
<a HREF="/downloads/somefile.exe">click here to download</a>

.c[/code]

and you could also have an image with the download on it eg.

Code: [ Select ]
<a href="c:\somewhere\download.exe">
<img src="C:\somewhere\picture.jpeg">
</a>
  1. <a href="c:\somewhere\download.exe">
  2. <img src="C:\somewhere\picture.jpeg">
  3. </a>
