Automagically download a clicked file on a Page

Jump to solution

Hello fellow designers! Is it at all possible to just link to a file on a Page and have it download automatically? I'm looking for it NOT to load in a preview. (It's an .ics file) Thanks!

I figured it out! I just removed the bold bit of html code for the link

Thanks! This is exactly what I needed. I have very large data file for which preview is useless and often causes Canvas to hand while loading it. I can disable the inline preview using the option in the GUI page editor, but the link to the files still opens a preview page. Your solution bypasses the preview page allowing the large data file to go straight the the browser for saving.
