I have developed a softwareprogram and some zip files, which I will like to make available on my new homepage. How can I program my homepage, so people can download my softwareprogram and zipfiles ?

Best regards,

Hi there,

You can simply link to the file using an HTML anchor tag. For example:

<a href="YourFile.zip">Download now</a>

would work when the zip file is in the same folder as the page that contains the link. For a sub folder you use something like this:

<a href="SubFolder/YourFile.zip">Download now</a>

Hope this helps,

Hi Imar

Thank you for your reply!

Can I also use the anchor tag, if the size of the file is 40 MB ? Is there a better way ?

Best regards,

Bo Christoffersen
