Usage Example

Assuming a downloadable product has the following 2 required single-choice options:

  • 'Version' with the values '', '' and ''
  • 'Theme' with the values 'Standard' and 'Journal'

This would require 6 corresponding downloadable files associated with that product where the file name masks have sub-strings matching up with the various option values:

  • ''
  • ''
  • ''
  • ''
  • ''
  • ''

Each file name mask must have matching sub-strings for all selected single-choice option values.

All of the product's single-choice options of types 'select', 'radio' or 'image' must be used for this, and they must all be set to 'required'.

A file name mask is considered to contain a matching option value when the latter, after replacing dots and blanks ('.' and ' ') with hyphens ('-'), can be found as a sub-string in the file name mask.
