Download Monitor is a plugin for uploading and managing downloads, tracking downloads, and displaying links.
The basic functionality of the plugin is pretty solid. It does what it says, and does it well. Creating your own template isn't well documented, but someone with a decent knowledge of php and a good knowledge of CSS should be able to get by.
The add-on Page plugin, however, was a disappointment. Even using stock 2012, it looks aweful, and my attempts to decipher the CSS to make it look reasonable keep making it worse.
The response I received when I asked for clarification was "you must have added something to your .CSS that's affecting it."
Sorry, a plugin installed on a fresh version of wordpress should work straight out of the box. It should not use bizarre fonts that hardly anyone has on their machine. It should NOT have floats that overlap each other. Furthermore, if the css for a plugin is so dependent on other seemingly non-related css elements then that's poorly written CSS.
Best User Interface. Best Functionality. Best Download Management. Get this add-on http://mikejolley.com/projects/download-monitor/add-ons/page-addon/ and you're laughing! All of Mike Jolley's plugins rock.
Thank you Mike for a very cool update. Its now so much of a pleasure to get my downloads organized and offer it as i choose. I offer some on direct download and some via email link. I particularly like the categories and the url toggle in the add download window. :) nice one.
Keep up the good work.
Thank u MJ for this nice and free plugin. Best DL-Plugin for WP!
This is one of the best plugins to manage download files in your blog, if not the best one. I have been using the legacy version of Download Monitor until the author released the new version. Fortunately I was able to import all the old files seamless and straightforward using the Legacy Importer tool. I appreciate a lot the way to add new download files in the new version (using drag and drop) and on the fly.
I tried download a file several times, from different IP-adresses. No statistics at all.
I give it 1 star since this was the main reason for trying the plugin. Otherwise it works, the download counter for example. Did not try it out too much though.
This plugin works great. It exceeds all my expectations.
hi i translateی this plugin to persian fa_IR
It's a pity that this plugin is being discontinued! Will be great to move it to a next level and use custom post types to manage downloads. Great plugin anyway!
Great tool for document distribution. Does everything I need. Use a link to Google Drive if you want to save bandwidth.
Thank you MikeJolley, great work.
