Fantastic plugin
By , for WP 4.6

Seriously my favorite plugin! I don't know what I'd do without it. Convenient and easy.

I'd also love add-on purchase options for Madmimi integration :)

Additional option of secure files
By , for WP 4.5.3

Hello, nice plugin! But secure files from members only not enough option. Update pls plugin wia option of downloading by roles!
On my site users have different permissions to allowed content and I want to close option of dawnload files by share links of trusted roles to not-trusted.
Thank you!

Lightweight and delightful

I like its simplicity.
Very well done.

Can be a gool plugin but...
By , for WP 4.5.2

No image, no category hierarchical list in page with shortcode...
As is isn't a real download manager, but an attachments manager with log and counter.

I need to make a full download manager with screen, categories, ecc.
This isn't good for this :/

Clean, Simple, Reliable, Easy to Use

Great plug-in with all the features I need, and none of the features that tend to bloat similar download manager plug-ins. I like the log of downloads, and the count tracker. The links work really well in my MailChimp emails, my email Opt-in freebies and all over my blog, to consistently track downloads to each file.

Easy to use and no documentation needed, just like a Kinder-egg surprise. However it would be great with a table-view list... for this reason I couldn't use it but it deserves 5 stars.

very good!

This is a very good pluggin! Thank you!

No support at all, misleading stats
By , for WP 4.4.2

This should be an easy and simple plugin to make your users downloading stuff from your website and keep track of who download and what.

There are some aspects in the settings that are not clear and not so easy to set up, the documentation is poor and there is no support at all in the dedicated forum.

There are plenty of other download plugins to try out there.

The best download manager plugin for WordPress
By , for WP 4.4.1

Some years ago I used Joomla CMS system with the best document management extension: DocMan created by JoomlaTools.
Switching to WordPress I have tried many document management plugins and I have to admit, the best one is Delightful Downloads created by A5hleyRich!

I have some questions and development proposals to let this plugin the absolute best on the market:

Clicking on All downloads button I miss the filterable category combo box. We use 3-4 thousand documents on our portal, and it is a bit complicated to list downloadable files from one category: first I have to filter some character from the document name, then click its category to filter.

2.) Add Download button
a) I think that this text (Add Download button) is not included in the translatable .pot file
b) In the insert download window I miss the category and the name filter too.
c) I think a quick upload function would be useful to upload a file to a selected document category and insert link into post sor pages in one step.
d) Another useful function would be (or a payable addon) the customizable insert list button.
(I have subscribed to your mailing list)

Pushing ENTER between [ddownload id=".."] code blocks, there is no line break int he output, the links or buttons are next to each other.

Replace file: It would be a useful option to phisically delete the previous file from upload directory.

Is there an option to list and delete the uploaded and not linked phisical files? (orphan files)

There is an option in settings / media library: put images in Year/Month subfolders. This option is inherited in Delightful Downloads plugin. It would be better to set this option seperated in media library photos and in your plugins setting window. I think the subfolders is useful in Media Manager, but we dont want to use it with uploaded documents.

Is it possible, that when uploading files with extended latin characters (öüóőúéáűí) in the file names, the upload process changes this alphabets to standard (ouea) characters?

Thanks for your answer in advance!
