Enhance download links with an icon
The Download Link component visually enhances a web page by adding an icon that denotes the link downloads a file versus simply being a hyperlink on a page. The icon separates a download link from a simple hyperlink on the page making it easier for site visitors to know what is a link to content or another page and what is a link to a downloadable file.
Other Download Link Features
- Link Display Name
- Add File Through Drag and Drop from the Content Finder
Link Display Name
Type text for the link to display a name. Be descriptive and creative as the link also has an icon that represents the idea that a user should click the link to download the file.
Add a File
First add your documents to your site folder in AEM Assets (there should already be a folder for documents). Next drag the file from the Content Finder to the component. Don't drag a file directly from your computer to the component. Always upload to AEM Assets first, then drag it from the Content Finder.
