    Hi,
    Just working with SF 5.0 and I was wondering if there was a way to create a download list which can also include links to web pages.

    I would like to be able to add word and pdf options but in some cases the library will also point to a website.

    If its not possible to do with a download list, is there another option?

    e.g.
    File1.doc - download button
    file2.pdf - download button
    webpage - view page
    file 3.doc - download button

    I had hoped others had tried this in the past, I guess not.

    Is it possible to copy a widget and make changes to the code? If it is, I can have a look at modifying the download list.

    Hello Owain,

    We don't offer this out of the box. Usually, you can modify the templates of the download list widget. However, each of them uses a control, which binds to a datasource to get the document items. You cannot have a multiple datasources for these controls and you won't be able to get pages AND documents. What you can do is create a custom widget with two controls (for example repeaters), where the first one will have documents as a datasource and the second one  - pages.

    All the best,
