The best way to use SkyDrive links in posts?

    Hello! I'm trying to figure out how to share links to files stored on SkyDrive, not images or Office files, but e.g. zip file. I tried to copy/paste 'embed' code from SkyDrive, but not 100% sure that it's permanent. I figured out that something like this works:
    https://skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/Folder%20Name/FileName.zip?cid=XXXXXXXXXXXXXX
    Maybe there is better way to allow start downloading with single click w/o redirecting to SkyDrive page?

    The blog I need help with is dmitryivanov.net.

  2. You need to read this and follow the links in it, as I suspect you probably are asking about a self-hosted blog:

    No, it's hosted here on wordpress.com. Skydrive generates embed code wrapped in iframe, which is stripped out when inserted to a post. Guess there is one more solution: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/shortcode-for-skydrive-embed?replies=2#post-875866.

  4. iframes are not allowed here - a security thing - script code is also stripped.

  5. Here is the code that works and which gets stripped: http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/
