Simple plugin, but interesting. It could be better one but isn't for 3 flaws: 1) Not translatable - does not have a PO file; 2) Does not encode links, indicating the location of the file on the server or directly in the media library - ruining all security measures (PDF - Force PDF to open in a new tab); 3) Does not allow editing the internal permalink name: bfd_download. Download Monitor, which has much more functions, does not have such flaws.

Great plugin! Very simple to use. Really like ability to categorize downloads, makes it easy to offer them to visitors. Would give it 6 stars:) if had option to interface with Amazon S3 so could simply upload files there. Glad I found it and thanks for sharing your work.
