Took down my entire website!
By , for WP 4.2.2

This plugin worked great on localhost, and the download pages looked great, too. But once I added it on my production site, every other save or page load would give me a database connection error. Eventually, the site wouldn't load at all--even another site, under another domain, on the same hosting plan was hosed. I have now wasted hours on this, and will be forced to call my host's tech support. I would give this NO starts if I could!

Uncustomizeable
By , for WP 4.2.2

This plugin works, as long as you don't want to customize it at all.

Their template system literally involves editing core plugin files. This plugin fails to use best coding practices and even seems to find downright bad coding practices and use them instead.

Don't expect timely, useful, or professional help, even with pro support.

All around an absolutely terrible plugin.

Poor Support, very dissappointed
By , for WP 4.2.2

I bought the Download manger Pro package and some plugins. It didn't have some of the features that was advertised and the support was very poor, they just ignore your post/comment. If i have choice, i will give they NO star.
