I need to add a few files to my website where I can hand out a link, and when the user clicks it, their browser asks if they would like to download the file.
I tried just sticking the file on the site, but when I go to it, my browser wants to open the file with the browser, and not give me a "Open With" or "save to" popup.
Without seeing your code, it is impossible to say. It would also help to know how you are trying to do this; are you hitting a script on the server to facilitate the download, or just trying to use your browser. I have a snip of PHP code that works fine, but if you are not using php, it won't help you much.
