    Hello, thanks for this new plugin. is fantastic ...

    On my website http://lurdesvieira.com/downloads (old version of plugin)downloadsworks well .

    In tests site http://lurdesvieira.com/teste2/downloads (new version of the plugin) the Downloads do not work. Says file not found.

    I've already save several times the Permalink Settings.

    In the old version of the plugin, i had to manually change the .access file, because the plugin did not do it automatically.

    I can not find in any location, for this new version of the plugin, the code to put on .access file

    I consider buying the add-ons DLM Page Addon, but first wanted the plugin (new version) is functioning properly.

    Thank you

    Just a guess here but do your download files use non standard Latin characters e.g. characters with accents? The Download Monitor plugin escapes accented letters and this causes 404 errors. If you use accented letters, change them to non accented letters then test again.

    Hello

    On the old version of the plugin, this files work well.

    I change the name of the file, used on the new version of the plugin ( to non accented letters), and work

    So this new version of the plugin, have one issue...

    Please make new the plugin, like the old version. Because all my files, used on http://lurdesvieira.com/downloads have accented letters. If i chage the old to new plugin, they dont work...

    I'm glad you tested the old version for compatibility with accented letters; I didn't do that test.

    Hope the developer corrects this soon.

    Can you let me know what version of PHP your server is running?

    json_encode doesn't cope well with special chars in versions < 5.4. If it's possible to upgrade that, saving the problem downloads may fix this up. https://github.com/mikejolley/download-monitor/blob/master/includes/admin/class-dlm-admin-writepanels.php#L468

    The old version of the plugin work, they don’t use json_encode ?

    The old version of the plugin, and the new version are running in same server.

    I will see if the host company upgrade the PHP version, and tell you...

    But if they don’t upgade, you can change the new plugin to work ?

    The old version used serialization instead of json_encode which had its own limitations.

    I could possibly add a fallback but it would need testers. See if you can upgrade first.
