Excellent Plugin!

I was using another download plugin but it was complicated and not working properly. I needed to mainly track my free downloads easily. This one is perfect. Its simple to use and looks professional. Love it!

Brilliant plugin to download Documents
By , for WP 3.9.1

Easy to use plugin to display downloadable documents, asked for a feature request to display the counter alongside the download button and it was implemented without any fuss.

Thanks for a great plugin.

Does what it say's on the packge
By , for WP 3.9.1

I have been looking for a plugin that allows users to download files from my site but also makes it easy for me to create the settings due to the fact I am a none techie person. This plugin was so easy to install and set up I had my first trial download in place within around five minutes following the video tutorial. The options to display an image or just a button is also a great little feature.
If the addition of allowing site visitors to upload files was added I would immediately replace existing plugins for this one even if I had to purchase it.
All in all a great plugin with fast response time to emails from developer and highly recommended.

Not user-friendly (the new version)
By , for WP 3.8.1

I got it to work anyways but it was no pleasure. I really the old version where you had to rewrite the htaccess. That worked great. The actual system is pretty bad.

I dont want to create a download just for a plugin. I just want to have a tool that logs when a download from a specific folder has been done. =(

Edit: Okay got back to the 0.24 Version and will change the stars from 1 to 4 because I don't know another addon that is able to do it like that version till now. Maybe you should offer this Version splitted from this one here. I'm sure that many guys like me wishing such a simple solution instead of crappy "Add download" stuff. You know. Keep your work up. Now I need to disable that he shows me updates for your addon =/

Really Lightweight/Effective Download Monitor
By Plugin Contributor, for WP 3.7.1

Just wanted to drop by and say what a handy tool this has become in my plugin arsenal. Okay.. I helped develop it... but honestly, I have found myself using the plugin more and more!!
