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!

Works, but . . .

Tried it out, worked great. Waited for info about additional add-ons - even went to the website hoping they'd be there. Nothing. I really would have liked to have gotten the Mailchimp add-on they promised was coming. Had to find something else.

Truly delightful. Thank you!

Hey there, thank you for this plugin! Works like a charm and it's not too much for my simple needs (We offer free downloads at this site). I was able to easily integrate Delightful Downloads with my existing hand-coded links and buttons with two lines of CSS. $$ sent your way - Happy Holidays! P.S., I , too am wondering how to reset to "All Time" counter...

I absolutely love the simplicity of this plugin and I use it all the time.

Although, I wish there was an option to delete individual logs instead of all the logs.

Thanks for plugin!

This plugin is very good. I have not bugs and problems.

does not work
By , for WP 4.3.1

did not work for me, I click here and there but nothing happens, I see this appears (dedo-shortcode-modal) at the end of each link but nothing else happens.

Something changed...
By , for WP 4.3

This was working nicely for quite a long time -- months, at least. Suddenly a client is trying to reach me from a conference because clicking a DDL link no longer downloads anything. Except it still works in Safari for OS X.

I do not know if this behavior started with WordPress rev 4.3 or if something on the client's server changed. In our haste for a fix, any fix, we didn't have time to debug and just replaced all the DDL links with traditional URLs.
