Customizing the Download History Template

The download history is shown on any page with the [download_history] short code. It will show the name and download links for every file the current user has purchased. The exact layout and display of these elements can be easily modified through a template file placed inside of your theme.

The template file used to display the download history is located in  wp-content/plugins/easy-digital-downloads/templates/history-downloads.php. To modify it, do two things:

  1. Create a folder called edd_templates inside of your currently active theme's directory.
  2. Copy history-downloads.php to the new folder created in 1.

Once you have created the  edd_templates directory and copied the file over, you can make any change you wish to the file and your changes will be reflected in the [download_history] short code.
