    I have everything working perfectly, but I am wondering how I can connect a pdf download to a “Download Button” image. I assume there is a simple solution to this.

    Can you provide an example of how this is done?

    Thanks in advance.

    Use the “CLASS” parameter in the shortcode, like this…
    [formidable-download form=”xyz” dataset=[id] layout=”123″ class=”my_button”]

    There are also other parameter settings that may be useful here. Be sure to login to see them all.

    Do I put the full link of the button?
    The button name with extension (ex. png)
    or just the button name?

    None of these are working.

    Please provide an example.

    Thanks.

    If you have a button CSS class, such as…

    <style>
    .button1 {
        background-color: #4CAF50; /* Green */
        border: none;
        color: white;
        padding: 15px 32px;
        text-align: center;
        text-decoration: none;
        display: inline-block;
        font-size: 16px;
        margin: 4px 2px;
        cursor: pointer;
    }
    </style>

    Then use the class=”button1″ parameter.
    [formidable-download form=”xyz” dataset=[id] layout=”123″ class=”button1″]

    I have an image button I want to use.

    Such as here: http://hennessypma.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/red-download-button.png

    I do not have an class for a button, I have a real image I want to use.

    Please tell me how to do this?

    Did you test the code in the Formidable Form’s On-Submit Message Box, or Email Action, or a Formidable View? Can you send a screenshot of where you placed the code?

    I placed it in a page on my website?

    In that case you’ll need to follow this, How To: Use the Shortcode in a Page or Post, and use the code above in a Formidable View.

    I really don’t want to change the formidable form redirect as I have the redirect to a page on my website and on this page is where I want the download button.

    There has to be an easier way or a better way to include the shortcode inside the page.

    Please let me know.

    You instructions are confusing.

    Where do I go to create a view on the website?

    Where do I view format?

    You do not need to “change the formidable form redirect“… you only need to add a parameter to the existing URL.

    Simply create a Formidable View as instructed here and put the tag PRO2PDF shortcode we provided above into the view, then put the view’s shortcode on the page exactly where you want the button. That’s it!

    We can do it for you for $5, complete this form if needed.

    There is no easier way, as Formidable’s entries are not available to WP pages or posts except through a Formidable View… and it is easy to implement!

    Can I hire you guys to set this up?

    I want to use a separate page with a download button on that page and have the download button image connected to the pdf download link?

    this shouldn’t be this complicated.

    You’re correct, it’s not complicated. However, due to WP security, you would need to learn how to use Formidable Views to place data from a Formidable Form entry onto a WordPress page/post.

    We are willing to login and complete the task for you for only $5 if you complete this form.

    I just filled out the form

    The page that I want the download button to appear on is:

    http://hennessypma.com/member-documents/

    The image for the button is:

    http://hennessypma.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/red-download-button_300.png

    Please let me know how to pay for this.

    Also, can you see why it downloads a previous user’s data.

    We have completed your request. It’s the first button on the /member-documents/ page.

    NOTE: We needed to uncheck the “Do not store entries submitted from this form” option on this page, because the link will not work if the entries are not saved.

    Here’s the Formidable View.
    Here’s the shortcode used on the /member-documents/ page: [display-frm-data id=1236 filter=limited]
