Media files can’t be inserted as downloadable link
|Reported by:||derekspringer||Owned by:|
Linking to the media file creates the shortcode/player. Various users in tickets and forums report that they want to still have the option to NOT include the player.
Steps to reproduce:
- New Post
- Add Media
- Select or upload an audio or video file
- Under Attachment Display Settings, change the Link To dropdown to “Media File” (or anything but "None")
- Click insert into post
Result: the shortcode to include a player is inserted rather than just the file link. You get the same result when you choose a different attachment setting option like: attachment page, media file or custom url.
