File Force Download 7.x-1.0 Description
Description: File Force can be used to force the user's web browser to download the file to disk instead of displaying it in the browser window.
Web browsers today are pre-configured to render various types of media directly, such as text files, various image, video and audio formats, PDF documents, and Flash movies. While it is still possible to save such files afterwards by right-clicking on them and selecting "Save As..", it is sometimes desirable to just offer the file for download in the first place. File Force solves this issue by supplying a file with certain HTTP headers which instruct the web browser to download the file to the user's disk instead of displaying it in a browser window.
What you get from this module
* Formatters for your fields in the "Display Fields" interface
* Formatters for your fields in Views
* Easy-to-use theme function
* Consider using a web server configuration first, especially if you have a high-traffic site and your settings should apply across the board to all files of a specific set of types.
File Force path in 2.x
IMPORTANT! The 2.x branch changes the way a file path needs to be built in order to force file download. These are now generated by appending a ?download=1 query to the actual file URL, so your links should look something like this: system/files/song.mp3?download=1. Note that manually adding ?download=1 will only work for private download links, going through system/files or another menu link. This is a final change! Apologies again for any inconvenience caused.

The 5.x branch has been discontinued due to lack of a maintainer. However, if you want to take the 5.x branch up again, just give us a shout!
The development of this module is supported by Joy Group.
