allow download of mp3 file

Recommended Posts

My website is here: https://futurebeacon.com

On that front page source I have a code that looks like this:

<a href="https://www.futurebeacon.com/00Music/JA2.mp3" class = link_style1>More Music by James Adrian</a>

It sends the website visitor to this location:


The music in the file JA2.mp3 immediately begins playing.  This is what I want it to do.

I am trying to also allow the visitor to download the file from the page that plays the music and I have been searchings for instructions to do that in such a way that the file does not play music but downloads the file.

All the instructions I have read would have me use the same code that I am currently using to play the music.  I can't see a difference.

Please tell me what I am missing.

Thank you for your help.

Thank you for this link.

I am using html 5 and my browser is Safari 11.1.2 which is higher than 10.

The source code I am using is this:


<a href="https://www.futurebeacon.com/00Music/JA2.mp3 download>Download Music
<img src="https://www.futurebeacon.com/00Music/JA2.mp3"></a>

It is on my front page.  I does not work and "Download Music" does not get rendered for the visitor.

Can you help me find out what is going wrong?

Thank you for your help.
