What is the WP Canvas Direct Download?

WP Canvas Direct Download is an option in WordPress Canvas that lets you use download links for your plugins and themes instead of uploading zip files. In this way, you can use your own files that are not available in the WordPress repository.

You will just need to enter the download link for each plugin or theme you want to install, and RunCloud will automatically use it for your web application setup. This makes it faster and more convenient to use custom plugins and themes with WordPress Canvas.
