How to add downloads to your page with Elementor

Adding downloads to your page is super easy!

You can either add them via Gutenberg block or with the help of a page builder such as Elementor.



In order to add your downloads to your page using Elementor, you need to follow these steps:

Step 1: I assume that you already have a download created with Download Monitor, so go to your WordPress Dashboard > Downloads > All Downloads.

Step 2: Click on the download file you want to display on your page and copy the shortcode.

Step 3: Head to your Dashboard > Pages > Add New > Edit with Elementor.

Below, we’ll list three ways you can add a download to your page with Elementor.

Add the download through the Text Editor widget

Step 1: Go to Elements > Basic, then drag the Text Editor widget. Delete the default text and add the download shortcode.

Step 2: Once you’re done, click Publish.


Add the download through the Shortcode widget

Alternatively, you can add download files to your page with the Shortcode widget.

Step 1: You need to go to Elements > General and drag the Shortcode widget.

Step 2: Paste the download shortcode and click Publish.


Add the download through the Button widget

Another way to add your download with Elementor is with the Button widget.

Step 1: Go to Elements > Basic and drag the Button widget.

Step 2: In the left sidebar, go to Link and paste your download URL (make sure to delete the “#” symbol). Click Publish, and your downloadable file is live!

These are all the steps you need to follow when adding a downloadable file to your page with Elementor. Your file is ready to download!
