LabelGrid Tools incorporate a powerful Download Gate with Follow To Download functionalities.
Gated Downloads requires the person to follow, like, and/or other social actions before enabling a file download or forwarding to a secret link.
LabelGrid Gate service connects to LabelGrid servers and handle the complete “Unlock to download” flow remotely.
To create a new gated download go to:
Dashboard > Gate Downloads > New
You can either Match with existing release or Upload an Artwork and Description.
Match with existing release: a download button will appear in the release page.
Upload an Artwork and Description: a download button will appear in the Gated Download page.
Specify your file by either using the upload form or providing a link.
For example, you can also specify external paths and links in the following format:
Local file path:
You can specify an URL to forward the user to once the Gate process is complete.
The download settings tabs lets you add several actions that must be performed when the end-user wants to download your file. These actions will be executed automatically once the end-user authorizes API access to their Spotify (Soundcloud, etc), account.
For example, you can specify a Spotify playlist that you want the user to follow before the download is accessed. You can also stack these actions so that multiple actions are performed.
The field "Min. Accounts Required" in Gate Downloads->Download Settings give you the capability to allow users to complete the Gate with an inferior number of connected accounts than what you specified in the Gate settings.
This is useful in cases while users doesn't have an account on all the services required from the Gate and would be unable to complete it.
You can display Gated Downloads directly navigating to the path /free-download/post-name.
Check the Plug-in installation for more informations on how setup the plugin.
Is possible to integrate a Gate Download Button in any post or page of your Wordpress install simply by using the dedicated shortcode and specifying the Gate ID.
