Noob webdeveloper here.
I'm trying to download an image from an url on click. But when I use the image url as my href it just redirects to that url instead of downloading. Of course I am using the download attribute. I have tried my own code and also mulitple code blocks from other people. But all of them just redirect. I am using google chrome.
<a href = "https://autoooo.nl/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/F5144B9C-2B27-4070-828E-2361EBD702EF-400x400.jpeg" download="car" id="downloadQRCodeButtonHref"> <p>download</p> </a>
Code I used from someone else 1(accepted answer):
<a download="custom-filename.jpg" href="/path/to/image" title="ImageName"> <img alt="ImageName" src="/path/to/image"> </a>
Code I used from someone else 2:
<p> Click the image ! You can download! </p> <?php $image = basename("http://localhost/sc/img/logo.png"); // you can here put the image path dynamically //echo $image; ?> <a download="<?php echo $image; ?>" href="http://localhost/sc/img/logo.png" title="Logo title"> <img alt="logo" src="http://localhost/sc/img/logo.png"> </a>
Some help will be appreciated. I might just be a big dum dum and overlook something extremely obvious.
The problem is because you're using a cross-domain URL. From the documentation for the
To fix this you need to host the image on the same domain as the parent site.
