Additional atribute for downloads

Hi, I thought it could be nice to have an additional checkbox “force download” for adding file downloads to pages with Sparkle, and to add the download atribute to a link this way, so a user downloads the file automatically instead of viewing it if the browser can display the file itself.

best regards



I think the browser controls that. You can add text “Right Click to download the file.” Works with Safari. I did not test other browsers :wink:

Hi, yes that’s true, but it is an attribute that is helpful for users with limited knowledge.
It lets visitors download the linked file automatically instead of opening it.

I have added a link in a testpage with this attribute and Safari downloads the file instead of showing its content.
But its laborious to use an embed object for this.

That’s an excellent suggestion thanks.
