Why aren’t there any related downloads showing up on my single download page?
Most likely, there are no other downloads that share that download’s tag or category.
I don’t want them below my content. Can I use a template tag in single-download.php to position the related downloads wherever I want?
Yes. Use WordPress’s function
the_widget. If you want the default output, use:
If you want to specify parameters for this instance, use:
$inst = array( 'title' => 'You May Also Like', 'number' => 3, 'taxcat' => false, ); the_widget('edd_related_downloads_widget', $inst, $args);
However, the 2 above will style it just like the sidebar widget, which is list-style. If you want this to appear grid-style, like the default Related Downloads that get added below the content, you have to add the
$args parameter, like so (you can change the $inst, but not the $args if you want grid-style):
$inst = array( 'title' => 'You May Also Like', 'number' => 3, 'taxcat' => false, ); $args = array( 'before_widget' => '',// make it grid-style 'after_widget' => '', ); the_widget('edd_related_downloads_widget', $inst, $args);
