** Add file size manually **

The plugin can calculate the file size for you by entering 1 in the filesize value. You don’t have to enter it manually but in case, enter the file size value in the filesize attribute like below.

[quick_download_button filesize="14.5MB" title="Download" url="http://yoursite/wp-content/upload/fileto_download.pdf"]
