Very simple and straight forward
By , for WP 4.2.1

Doesn't get in the way. Just gives you everything you need from a lightweight downloads manager.

Excelent tool for password protecting files
By ,

I've tried many Download plugins, some were ineffective or hard to use (had to look at a tutorial). Others didnt even work the way I expected.

This one, has a very good and simple graphic interface that makes the upload something fast and so simple.

Just passworded the file and copied the short code to a Page post, and when I tried to download it required the password just as expected. The download URL is managed by the script so no direct access.

Excellent! Thanks for the plugin, I had to register to set this comment but I think the plugin deserves it.

Forget the rest, use the best!

Great plugin
By , for WP 4.1.1

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.

Excellent lightweight yet versatile download manger
By , for WP 4.1.1

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.

Excellent plugi

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.

Thank you.

If you need download a file from your website... this is the plugin you need. Simple configuration and works smoothly.

This is wonderful!

I have spent HOURS looking for a simple download manager that satisfied the following requirements:

  1. Not overly complex
  2. Well-written quality code that won't introduce vulnerabilities
  3. Allows the users to download PDF files to their hard disk rather than open them in a browser tab
  4. Has good user reviews

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!
