Direct download not working

New member | Level 2

Hi,

I have a website and on a particular page i gave a download button to download the app, the app is hosted on dropbox.

i just make direct download link of that app but it work for some time, after that it doesn't. The app is not downloading directly but it redirects to a new page where we have to download the app manually. The app is whatsapp plus.

I don't know why it is not working. Can this issue be fixed?

Thanks in Advance.

Hey there @ritu_72 - sorry to hear about this.

Could you please let me know how are you doing this exactly and the steps you take to make this direct link of that app you mentioned, also providing screenshots that would help me get a better understanding of the matter at hand?

If you're using the web, have you tried on other browsers?

You're not using a direct download link. You're using a link that displays the preview page for that file on the Dropbox website. Change the ?dl=0 at the end of your links to ?dl=1.
