I've used several plugins to manage my downloads. However, none of these plugins have covered my expectations. Also, one of the most popular download plugin has a big vulnerability (http://threatpost.com/critical-remote-code-execution-flaw-found-in-wordpress-plugin/109720). All those things have push me to change and find a better plugin. I've found "Delightful Downloads" and this makes me happy :-)
However, a pair of improvements could be made:
+ Use of images (or icons) into the download button to identify the file type
+ More buttons to choose
+ Statistics are great, but a pie or consolidated statistics (for country maybe) would be fine
Thank you friends!
5 stars for the developer.
Really awesome plugin!
I recently switched from WP-DonwloadManager after their suspicious 2.7 release and I love your plugin!
The dashboard overview is very useful too!
Many thanks and keep up the good work.
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:
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.
