Superb download plugin with excellent support for it's author Ashley!
The plugin has some nice features such as:
- logs per download including the user IP
- easily viewed statistics
- good looking "download buttons" which can be customized through css
- some security through folder protection
- "grace period" so the statistics won't include downloads of the same document several times, by the same user.
Also, even though som people didn't like the fact that they "couldn't customize their own download button" (i.e. changing the download botton to another Picture), this can easily be done by attaching a simple link to a Picture which links to your download page, which is also customizable.
Overall just excellent in my opinion
Very simple, all what I needed.
I just tested several of the leading download manager plugins for a new site. This is the best of the bunch:
Delightful Downloads is a great plugin that works, but I am however missing a few features that I'd like.
nice and clean interface, works as promised, no irritating ads, Well done, thanks!
This is just what our non-profit's website needed to track the users downloading our .PDF how-to DIY documents.
Only thing that would make Delightful Downloads even better would be an option to export the download log file as a .CSV.
Delightful Downloads is a very robust and simple solution for download and document management. We are using it on multiple sites for managing the display of PDF files, and Ashley has been very quick to respond to our requests for customization as we've stretched the plugin to meet our needs. Delightful Downloads is a great, flexible, well-supported plug-in!
Works as it says it does, nice and simple to use.
I was "wrestling" with another download manager plugin to make its shortcode align properly and out of frustration searched for something else and bumped into this.
Simply Great, straightforward and working perfectly. I only needed a plugin that displays a minimal button for various PDF files and this does the job great. Yet, it allows for custom buttons to be added which needs you to add some code and although I am not a coder searching around can help me do it.
Thanks a lot for sharing your work!
