Excellent
By , for WP 3.9.1

This is just what our non-profit's website needed to track the users downloading our .PDF how-to DIY documents.

Only thing that would make Delightful Downloads even better would be an option to export the download log file as a .CSV.

Excellent robust download manager with great support
By ,

Delightful Downloads is a very robust and simple solution for download and document management. We are using it on multiple sites for managing the display of PDF files, and Ashley has been very quick to respond to our requests for customization as we've stretched the plugin to meet our needs. Delightful Downloads is a great, flexible, well-supported plug-in!

Great & Working "out of the box"
By , for WP 3.9.1

I was "wrestling" with another download manager plugin to make its shortcode align properly and out of frustration searched for something else and bumped into this.

Simply Great, straightforward and working perfectly. I only needed a plugin that displays a minimal button for various PDF files and this does the job great. Yet, it allows for custom buttons to be added which needs you to add some code and although I am not a coder searching around can help me do it.

Thanks a lot for sharing your work!

Exactly what I was looking for!

This plugin does what it does and it does it well. It is easy to configure, easy to use, and works like a charm. Very nice job. Thank you for making this awesome and valuable plugin.

Been looking for something like this for a LONG time!!!
By , for WP 3.8.1

If you need to offer large file image downloads to your visitors but don't want to load the images in your page and slow down your sites load time, this is the plugin for you!
It's a little cumbersome to make it all come together but I'm sure as the Dev. continues to innovate the plugin it will get better and better. Great job!!!!

Clean and simple
By , for WP 3.8.1

This is a good example of a well thought-out interface. Easy to use, but still has a reasonable number of useful features. It only took me a few minutes to fully understand how to use it.

Great simple plugin.

Does what Ashley says it does. Easy to use and you can retrofit it to existing files which some other plugins don't seem to do.

The BEST download manager plug-in I have found!
By , for WP 3.8.1

I really, really like this plugin.

It's easy to use, highly configurable (but not full of bloat features you'll never use), provides nice clean output and just works really well.

It does everything I've needed so far. Be sure to read the Documentation as there's lots of options there you might not initially be aware of.

As far as future enhancements goes, it'd be nice to have some additional optional layouts for download lists (e.g. select menus, sorting, custom date formats etc.), and multi plug drag-n-drop uploads in the Admin section. But really, that'd just be icing on the cake.

Highly recommended!

Great Little Plugin
By , for WP 3.8.1

Thanks for the plug-in, has really improved the download section of our site which was lacking before we found the plug-in.

Easy to set-up and simply to configure unlike some others.

Would love to see the following including in future versions:

1. Voting
Ability to upvote + downvote downloads. Could also tie in to a list of top downloads.

2. Comments
Allow users to add comments to downloads.

3. File Tree Overview
Would be nice to see an overview in a file tree format of all downloads on a front page, to make navigation through categories easier.
