As you can see, it allows you to write a title for the widget, show the download’s title, the purchase button (variable pricing will display if needed), categories and tags. Setting the “download” option to “current” means it will output the information for the current download.

When placed in a sidebar that appears on each single download page, it may look something like this:


Using the download select menu again, you can select any existing download and have it show on other pages also:
