Easy to use/setup plugin - and developer support is AWESOME!
By , for WP 4.1.2

This was the perfect solution for what we needed in a file management plugin for WordPress. Not only is it easy for the web designer to setup but also easy enough that the end user/client can upload their own files after 30 minutes of training by me. What really was a pleasant surprise was how quickly the developer Creative Minds answered my questions and are open to suggestions for improvements to the plugin. To me that is worth the price of the plugin!

I'm only using half of the features this plugin has so there is plenty of room to grow if the client wishes. I would (and have) highly recommend this plugin to anyone looking for a simple yet robust file management system for WordPress.

too complicated :(

Its propably nice but you cant test it without risk, lite version is too light and no chance to take any advantage of this. I have lots of files put on the remote server, so I can not start it and test unless is full paid version because it doesnt support URL. Eventualy I wasnt able to add any downloads, Im not gona to take that risk and pay any money in advance sorry.

Easy to use

I have a WordPress website and needed a way to easily manage downloads and allow other people to access different documents and CM Download Manager does that. It is quick and easy to download and getting it set up and started didn’t take much time. I love that it gives me the downloads in a directory listing so it is easy to manage. I am able to see who downloads documents and how many times documents have been downloaded. CM Download Manager has helped my site become more organized and has made it easier for me to run a website.

Just what I was looking for
By ,

Upgraded to the pro edition for the shortcodes, formats and the BuddyPress integration.

The customization is pretty cool as well as the file preview feature. Great experience so far. Very simple and efficient.

I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a download manager plugin.

Download Manager low feature
By ,

I do not find any feature to use, as single file download is not enough.... no documentation, no shortcodes - confusion as all description show towards Pro Version....

Great Experience!
By , for WP 3.9

I have had an amazing experience so far with CM Download Manager. I have a blog on WordPress and it was getting exhausting running it by myself. CM Download Manager allows me to have the ability to be able to have multiple users log in and they are able to access all of the different sets of documents that I have laid out to each one of them. It's nice that I can set up individual files for each one and they are each able to access their own specific files.

On my blog, I post a lot of files that users are downloading. This plugin has made the process that much easier. It's so easy to use and it's working great for me so far.

CM Download Manager has kept me organized. The support team has been great in aiding me with any questions that I have. Great plugin that does what it's supposed to!

Its very helpful

My WordPress website was driving me crazy. I am not a computer tech and had difficult time to manage my website. I was introduced to use CM Download Manager by my website builder. I have loved it since then. It has simple and user friendly interface, which allows multiple users to login and I am able to assign different accessibilities to each of them. Now I am no longer the only one doing the work. At the same time, it helps us work even closer together and more efficiency. I am also amazed by their customer support, whenever we have questions, they are there to help and answer. Cm Download Manager does help us running the website a lot. I recommend it highly.

Excellent Plug in
By ,

I manage a website using WordPress, and I needed an efficient way to upload files. I wanted a plugin that would allow other website admins to upload documents, and to manage what users are able to download these files. In the past, I did not have an acceptable solution for this, and since I had control of all of the files to be uploaded, it became solely my job; the other admins had to ask me to upload files. I felt like I was doing everything to manage a website that I was already paying others to assist with.

I currently have the free version of the CM Download Manager Plug In, and I am very happy with it. I am pleased that there is no limitation on downloads, since I have chosen to make most of my uploaded files public. I have the ability to see how many views each file is getting, as well as votes for each user download.

The index where I manage my downloads has lots of useful features that allow me to sort my downloads based upon the particular stats I am looking for, such as by upload date, popularity of the download, and more. This helps me to evaluate my site's success better.

I am definitely happy with how this plugin has helped to increase my productivity and has changed the way upload files on my website. I am definitely considering purchasing the paid version; with all of the extra features, I'm certain that my website could benefit greatly.

Really Helps to Keep me Organized!
By ,

I have had a WordPress site for a few months now, but what I was lacking was a good Download Manager plugin. My site was very unorganized as a result, and I knew I needed to do something to fix my issues. I came across the CM Downloads Manager, and really liked what it had to offer.

Downloading and installing the plugin was extremely quick and stress free. Very easy to intergrate onto WordPress; you don't have to be a computer tech to do it. I noticed quite a few things that I really liked right away; first of all, you have the ability to upload, manage, and track files in a directory listing format, allowing others to be able to easily use and comment on. You can specify which users have the ability to use these features as well, which is a huge plus. You also have the ability to preview music you want before downloading it – love this feature! You also have the ability to customize the look and feel of it, which I have already done.

Since downloading the CM Downloads Manager and using it for awhile on my WordPress, I have to say that I'm extremely pleased. It really helps to keep everything in order, and It's not buggy at all (unlike some other plugins I've tried). I would highly recommend this one!

Avoid the paid for version
By , for WP 3.9.1

The paid for version does not work without asking for support - avoid it if you want to get your downloads working fast choose another system.

Refund is denied if you don't have 7 days available to fix the issue. So if you want a working solution fast - go elsewhere!
