Special download / Opt-in / PHP

Hi,

i seek help for the following request:
a client offers a couple of PDFs for downloading. Now she wants to get in return the emailadr of the users.
Her idea is:

  • list all PDFs on a page with checkboxes so user can check the ones s/he likes to download.
  • Once sent, user is directet to a form where s/he has to insert his/her name, email etc.
  • Once sent the required PDFS are presented for downloading

Site runs on TXP 4.2.0.

If you are interested and/or have a good idea how this can be achieved, please send me an email.
Job is paid.

Hi Alexandra and nice to see you back here,

if it doesn’t need to be super-secret-service secure and just a “give me your email and I’ll show you the goods”, this thread pretty much spells it out for you.

Hi alexandra

You can use zem_contact_reborn where instead of a thank you message you can have the list of downloads

Re: Special download / Opt-in / PHP

Hi you guys,
nice to see you again :) and Thank you so much for your ideas!

I know ZCR pretty well. Though ZCR can redirect to a page with all PDFs listed – this it not exactly what the lady wants. Thanks Julian for pointing me to yab_download! This plugin comes pretty close to what i need – BUT it does not offer the email function. The clients primary interest is getting the users emailadr + name, so she can contact them again (marketing).

What i seek seems to be a combination of ZCR + yab_download – or yab_download extened by some input fields and mailfunctionality.

The procedure i have in mind is:

  • Page A: form with inputfield for name + emailadr + list of all available PDFs with checkboxes + submit button
  • User checks the PDFs s/he wants and puts in name and emailadr – submits
  • Email is sent to client with info: Peter Pan, peter@pantest.com, PDF1, PDF2 etc..

User Peter Pan is directed to a page where he can download solely the files he requested (not a list with all files).

There is no need to keep pages top secret or building a secret section, login or anything like that.

If anybody feels like programming something like that / extending the yab_download plugin let me know and let me know what you charge.

I caught a bad flu :( will respond but might take a couple of hours.

Re: Special download / Opt-in / PHP

Hi alexandra,

You should be able to do this using a script called Form Processor Pro in one of two ways (or manybe even more).

Nothing to do with Textpattern and a little bit technical to set up, but it’s a powerful form process that can be used for various things.
