Reviews

Great!

Simply works, great plugin if all you want is simply monitoring who downloads your files.

Download not happening

Too bad as most worked nicely. Got the email giving the link but download didn’t happen. The clock just stop to zero, then nothing. Also, the notice to admin went into spam folder, filtered by hosting.

Almost perfect

Good plugin.

I would like to be able to modify the name of the tags “name*”, “email*” and “send download link” to be able to write them in my language.

waiting for it to be possible in the next version!

Easy to use and very usefull

I tested few plugins to get this function and this one is the most easy to use. There is some good options (who donwloded, and how many files), so i love it and recommand it.
