Add-On Type(s)



Simply place the plugin tag around the content that you wish to send to the browser as a file download.

Please note that when this plugin tag is encountered, all processing on the template will immediately cease and whatever state the content is in will be sent to the browser. So avoid using global variables, advanced conditionals, embedded templates, or other tags that would be parsed after the plugin.

{exp:download_content filename="foo.txt"}
 Some random content, maybe from a weblog tag.
