A super-awesome downloads manager and statistics tracker for WordPress.
I have tried many Download plugins but this one makes offering downloads in WP very easy. From all the ones I tested, I prefer using Delightful Downloads. For me the perfect solution and definitely a 5 Star rating worth.
At first the log function did not work under 4.2. After I did a little research, I found that the corresponding table wp_ddownload_statistics was not created. Since I'm using All in one WP Security and changed the table prefix from wp_ to something else, before I installed the plugin, this could have been the problem (not completely shure).
So the solution was quite easy. Looking into the plugin file class-dedo-statistics.php at line 389 the SQL Statement can be found to create the table manually by using phpMyAdmin. That was it and the logs work fine.
Here's the SQL for those who have the same problem:
CREATE TABLE test_ddownload_statistics ( ID bigint(20) unsigned NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT, status varchar(10) NOT NULL DEFAULT 'success', date datetime NOT NULL, post_id bigint(20) unsigned NOT NULL, user_id bigint(20) unsigned NOT NULL DEFAULT '0', user_ip varbinary(16) NOT NULL, user_agent varchar(255) NOT NULL, PRIMARY KEY (ID))
best by far of all the download manager and download shortcode plugins of the many i tried.
thanks so much for your excellent work A5hleyRich !!
Thanks so much for a well designed and professionally programmed plug-in. Tried others, but this is by far the best. The WordPress community is fortunate to have contributors such as yourself.
Would gladly give this plugin a 6 if I could.
The best download manger plugin I've found. Does everything it should without unnecessary bloat and all in a well designed and completely free package! Allows you to provide easy access to files on your site with simple short codes and best of all you can update a file without breaking your links! Just a great free plugin that does what it should and doesn't spam you with endless ads or shameless solicitations for a premium version. Thank you so much for this quality plugin.
This does exactly what it should do, not too much, not too little, the perfect goldilocks download plugin - easy for adding files and easy to insert download links with panache into posts and pages.
If you need download a file from your website... this is the plugin you need. Simple configuration and works smoothly.
I have spent HOURS looking for a simple download manager that satisfied the following requirements:
After many hours of frustrating searches through alternative plugins, I found Delightful Downloads, and it is delightful!
I can choose whether to allow the user to open the pdf in a new tab in their browser, or to download it to their hard disk.
The big bonus is that it will handle revisions superbly. The client needs only to replace the outdated file with the new revision, and all links on the website will automatically point to the latest revision. No more need to have to edit every link. Thank you, thank you, Ashley :)
I made the stupid choice of not tracking printable downloads for quite some time. I love this one!
With over 1200 items shortlinked and a previous plug-in dropped legacy support leaving me stranded.....This plugin has been much needed. I was able to pickup with new download files without getting bombarded with advertising and trying to sell us "one function at a time" as the most "popular" download plugin model is mow doing.
Keep this up - and the number of users will grow exponentially.
