Garbage ... are not working in version 3.9.1. A lack of respect for users spend so much time on a project with a tool that trash does not work. That same garbage .... Detroit community the lack of competence on leave without humiliating work ...

Whats the point of this rewrite.
By ,

This plugin is an excellent one if you are starting a new WP site. But those who are using it for years and had hundreds of downloads with the old version of the same plugin, this new version is really a frustration. Whats the point of this rewrite if there is no support or compatibility for the older downloads published with the same plugin.

Slow and does not work
By , for WP 3.7.1

Tried right now and it's not good at all. When I upload something I don't get any download link???

Also it's super slow. I want my old Simple Download Monitor back which was much better.

Too difficult to use
By , for WP 3.7.1

This plugin seems simple, download and input the shortcode, but it's not working. No zip file arrives in full. In addition there is no tutorial on this version 1.3.1.

Old plugin broke, new one is stripped down
By , for WP 3.6

With WP 3.6 the old plugin stopped working for me.
I found out that the self described "abandoned" plug in was not really abandoned, but packaged in a newer version.

Now, besides the new version did not work (with other errors than the old), I found quite debatable the idea to strip down a main feature (the downloads central page) and make it payware.

Had it been payware since the beginning, I'd probably bought it. But to strip down functionality after having grinded enough installation base is a street smarts marketeer move. Going to dump this and install another plug in.

Statistics does not work
By , for WP 3.5.2

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.
