DLM Changelog Add-on

An add-on for Mike Jolley’s Download Monitor which adds version changelog functionality.


Use this shortcode to display a DLM Download’s changelog in your posts or pages:

[dlm_changelog id={DLM Download ID}]

To paginate the changelog’s output, use the optional show attribute with the number of versions you want displayed on each page:

[dlm_changelog id={DLM Download ID} show="5"]

To hide download links or release dates (or both), use the optional hide_links and/or hide_release attributes, respectively:

[dlm_changelog id={DLM Download ID} hide_links="1" hide_release="1"]

  • The DLM Changelog admin area

How do I add changelog version notes?

Go to “Downloads” then “Changelogs” in the WordPress admin. Select the download you wish to add/edit the changelog for from the dropdown. Under the “Notes” column of the download’s Changelog table, click inside the area where your pre-existing notes are or where it says “Click to add notes”. An inline text editor will appear for you to use. Click “Save” to save your note. Basic HTML, such as italics, bold, underline, and ordered/unordered lists is able to be used in this text area.

How do I display a changelog on my site?

Use the [dlm_changelog id={DLM Download ID}] shortcode inside the WordPress page editor to display your changelog.

How do I disable pagination?

Set the [dlm_changelog] show attribute to 0, or don’t set it at all:

[dlm_changelog id={DLM Download ID}]


[dlm_changelog id={DLM Download ID} show="0"]

How can I hide the release dates?

Use the hide_release option in your shortcode like this:

[dlm_changelog id={DLM Download ID} hide_release="1"]

How can I hide the download links?

Use the hide_links option in your shortcode like this:

[dlm_changelog id={DLM Download ID} hide_links="1"]
