From my point of view, this is the best file management plugin and the latest feature "Google Drive Explorer" gives it another step up. Great job, keep it up.

Great Plugin, in new version you get migration tool for old version of this plug in.
If you don't find you file after upgrading just go to: Downloads-> Settings -> Migrate.
You have all you need to add simple download to WP if you need more functions you have also very good add-on

highly raccomanded!!!

Upgrade Doesn't worked for me
By , for WP 4.0.1

Upgrade didn't worked for me. It took away all the files that was previously available for download, as shortcode is changed.
I was happy with the previous version.
Is their way to get back to previous version.?

Great Plugin

Overcomplicated, but it works

I think this plugin is trying to do too much. In fact the shortcode outputs a whole blurb with a thumbnail, date, file size, etc., which I see no way to suppress. All I needed for my project was a simple link to download the file. I had to hide all that other stuff with CSS, which is a cheapskate way to do it. This was the only plugin I could find that I could have send an email notice upon each download. Unfortunately, I had to add a custom function to my functions.php in order to do this. This is one thing I think the plugin could make easier, which would make it more valuable. Instead, it includes such storage space consuming things as download button icons to choose from (which I could care less about). At least I was able to do what I needed to.

I started with version 2.7.83 and have since upgraded to 2.7.84 with no problems discovered thus far.
