Is it possible that when user paste a link in site news it convert in download button

if you just paste it into your entry field with text then it will also appear as text , and if you just paste a link in your entry field that redirects to a new page then yes that part is possible

what i can suggest you is using the file catalog , it has some fields when adding entry's your url will appear as a download link text , you can modify that text in appearance of entries in your file catalog to make it appear as a button

pro, there is a feature in some of the module settings "Add "http://" prefix automatically for the fields:". With its help you may use certain fields as fields for download links. But it is not there in all modules. You can find it in File Catalog, Publisher, Ad Board etc.

What is the difference between file catalog and site news?

I tell you in detail. I've made a mp3 site so that user can download and submit mp3 link. and you know that pasting link doesn't look good and user will not click it because it'll show the link to other site. so i want that when link pasted it appear as a download button like here in reply option "view" or "post reply".

I appreciate your help.

well, those are different modules and they fulfill different tasks. But it is possible to have fields for download links in both of the modules. (You may use Custom fields for that in Module settings of Site news)

you may just substitute the links itself with the text (like "Download"). To do so go to CP->Design->Design management (templates)->Site news->Page with entry full text and its comments->insert this code
Code
<a href="$OTHER1$" title="Download">Download link</a>
after $MESSAGE$ ->Save. Remember $OTHER1$ is for Custom field 1. So you will need $OTHER2$ for Custom field 2 etc

pro, if you use Custom field 1 you need to insert the code
Code
<a href="$OTHER1$" title="Download">Download link</a>
But if you have Custom field 2 the code will be
Code
<a href="$OTHER2$" title="Download">Download link</a>
etc

I don't understood you said "tag the field" .

I explain again what i want.

As in default site news we have option to add entry name, i want that i have 2 option like this in which i can put artist name and song name. And the both appeard after posting n when user click on anyone of them then he can see full post that is artist, song name, download link.
One more thing i dont want the other option( song name) like full disription which show full bb,html codec . I don't want that codec i just want simple single field as appear for adding site new title.

to do so you need to have additional fields. To add those fields go to CP->Site news->Module settings->Fields of anew entry form:->tag the checkbox of "Custom field 1" for example->Save. Substitution of default phrases->Form for adding new entries to "Site News" module->change "Custom field 1" into "Song name" or whatever you need and Save.

you may display Custom field 1 by adding $OTHER1$ variable in the template of Site news(Page with entry full text and comments and Appearance of entries)
