Hey, Im making a website for a band which I am friends with and they would like to have a page where their fans can download their music off it.

Now a friend recommended something along the lines of this:

<a href="resources/songname.mp3" onclick="location.href='resources/songname.mp3';return false;">Song Title</a>

But all this does is start playing the song in the users prefered music player. So what users have to do is rightclick and then "Save Target As"

Im really looking for something where the user would click on the hyperlink and then the browser automatically knows to download it.

Are there any simply ways of doing this? Particularly with javascript and/or basic HTML if possible.

This should do what you wish.

<a href="songname.mp3">Song Title</a>

Not so complicated :thumbsup:
