Would it be possible to make Addon Manager find the .zip file from that kind of URL automatically?




  • @NiklasG: Awesome plugin, great time saver, thank you!

    @forteller: Depending on your OS/browser, you should be able to simply right-click Download Now button to pop menu and select copy link/url address, which puts it on the clipboard. Simply paste into the Addon Manager field in your Dashboard and add .zip to end.
