Simplicity
By , for WP 3.9.1

Relative to the other file down loading program, WP Downloading Manager is nice and simple. It is as straight forward a plug-in as you can create for the potentially technical world of offering downloadable files on your WP website.

I'm ready to pay for a premium version that might provide a little more control over how the file links look and feel. But so far, this version has worked flawlessly...and I'm so appreciated of that.

Great little plugin.
By , for WP 3.9

Really flexible plugin. Very pretty display using Ajax. If you want to customise to include author, description etc. it is possible, but not well documented how to customise the template.
A good document management system if you have a lot of docs which you want users to download.

Good functionality, but a bit clunky and finicky
By , for WP 3.8.2

This plugin has a ton of features. It's out-of-the-box displays are clunky but it is very easy to customize with your own templates. Syncing with the file system is a bit hit or miss - doesn't detect moved files very well (if at all). But, overall this plugin is one of the best options I've found for wrapping metadata around your files.

Good for sync jobs
By , for WP 3.8.1

Wp-filebase really shines when synchronising a document repository with files in the file system. A small tweak to set the offline attribute by default was all it took to turn wp-filebase into a document publisher that automatically takes files from our legacy systems and publishes them on the intranet while requiring editors to actively set them online once they are validated and annotated. From there on any updates to documents are automatically handled.

Vey useful plugin
By , for WP 3.6.1

I really enjoy this plugin and it's functionality. It is very well structured and applicable. Though I think a bit more attention can be given to it's user-friendliness and visual appeal. Form does follow function anyways so great job, Fabian

Thanks very much!!!

Works but could use a few things
By , for WP 3.5.2

I really like this plugin as it does exactly what it promises. Easy to set up and configure.

I wish that instead of limiting user roles, that it would allow for restricting file downloads by user groups.

Good but can use a bit of polish
By ,

It works as a download manager but could us some polish to make it more user friendly.
