My first use of eStore is to offer two pdf files as a free download. You can see it here:
I am wondering if there is an advantage or disadvantage of using multiple files on a single product versus using the multiple products approach.
I played with both and prefer the single download URL from the multiple products method over using multiple files in a single product where the download URL’s (default) are ugly but at least work.
But I had trouble getting the multiple product approach to consistently download both products. I was wondering if leaving the shortcode naked instead of putting it into html as I did would make a difference.April 3, 2012 at 3:58 am #43657
Both of them will work fine. I personally prefer the multiple products approach too. When you say “I had trouble”… do you mean trouble with downloading via the encrypted link or just the whole squeeze form doesn’t work?
Here is the documentation for bundling products:

My initial tests of both approaches worked just fine and the squeeze form worked fine. But then the multiple products method stopped working as expected and only caused the first product to download automatically.
I don’t know if it was because I put the shortcode inside of custom html to give the squeeze form a visual background or something else in my browser. I may go back and retest this because I would prefer to use the multiple product method.
Here is the html I tried to use:
<div style=”float: right; background-color: #ffdf73; border: 2px solid #2419b2; padding: 10px;”>Subscribe & Download

The following shortcode that you are using is wrong:
You can’t use two products IDs in that shortcode in one go (it takes one product ID).
When I said multiple product approach, I meant one of the following:
Create another product where you use “1, 2” in the “Digital Product URL” field making it a packaged products. Lets say the product ID of this new product is 3. Now you can use the following:
[wp_eStore_free_download_ajax:product_id:3:end]April 4, 2012 at 12:29 am #43660
It sounds like there are two options.
Option 1: Enter multiple item download URLs in the Digital Product URL field separated by a comma. each item will then be listed separately in email/Thank-you page with their own links for Part 1, Part 2, Part n.
Option 2: Create individual products for each digital item. Then create a new “bundled product” by entering the product ID’s to be bundled in the Digital Product URL field separated by a comma. I think this method result differs by including each product name with their links instead of the generic “Part x”.
Somewhere I got the idea I could use multiple product IDs inside the shortcode but can’t find a reference sitting here now. But it did work of couple of times as described earlier then stopped.

I am trying to enter multiple URL of zip files separated by comma but it is not working.
I am getting below error. I just created a new product and enter some name and just to test, I entered same zip file in product download section two times separated by comma but I get following error. One solution is to put both zip files in one and do it but I wanted separate links. Please can you let me know what is the problem here..

It comes from our fancy display template. Each of our fancy product display template is wrapped in that class.October 9, 2013 at 3:01 am #43665
Could you please name the file please. I am unable to find that class.
