The Download component allows you to quickly create a download link for a file stored on your CQ site.
The Download Component will automatically determine the file format and display a corresponding file format icon beside the download link. A description field allows you to add a caption under the download link.
When should it be used?
Use the Download component whenever you need to display a link for a file stored on your CQ site. (e.g., PDF documents)
Using the Download component is helpful to visitors because this indicates that the link does not go to a web page, but to a file that can be downloaded.
In-Component Editing Options
Description - A short description displayed with the download link
File - Allows you to drag and drop a file from the Content Finder. Note: Uploading files from this dialogue box is not recommended as it is difficult to where the file is stored. Uploading a file using the Digital Asset Manager (DAM) is recommended.
