WooCommerce is blocking external download link

Normal WordPress including WooCommerce and Project Send as database for digital download. The content is packed as .zip files.

WooCommerce is routing end-user to a “Invalid download link. Go to shop” page and is providing following warnings for the articles. [See Screenshot]


  • Adding to Approved download directories
  • Enforcing Rules is disabled
  • File download method is set to “Redirect only”
  • Allow using redirect mode is enabled.

I was able to generate a working link, when digital item was uploaded to /wp-content/uploads/woocommerce_uploads/, but that is not what I want.

Hi @teevee98,

This appears to be limited to WooCommerce, and may require a change of settings. You can get help with this over on the WooCommerce support forums.

Please note that Trac is only for bugs/enhancements/features in the development of the core software of WordPress, rather than an issue with a plugin. I'll close this ticket as invalid as it does not pertain to the core software of WordPress.

Hopefully you're able to resolve this issue soon!

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
