    1. Absolutely I am. I just did a major overhaul of the WordPress site and it seems that the download manager plug-in I was using may be having some trouble.

      I’ll look into it and get it fixed. Won’t be until this evening though I’m afraid (it’s 8.40am here in NZ at the mo’). Bear with me and thanks for the heads up!

      1. Hi! Im trying to download from that link but returns “Invalid File ID or File Name.” The original version don’t show any log. Theres any way to get that? Thanks in advance!
