I've been using this plugin for a few years and I'm delighted with the new version. I can't understand why would anyone complain and give a low rating here (one star, really?). Fellow WP lovers, read the documentation, invest a little effort and you'll find out that this is a brilliant plugin https://github.com/mikejolley/download-monitor/wiki. Actualy this is a premium plugin but it's free of charge. The best download manager out there, full of features, stable, with good support, very well documented, easy to use out of the box, highly configurable (for users who read documentation) and great for developers.

Missing features

New update is only for make money, on my opinion this is bad

Whats the point of this rewrite.

This plugin is an excellent one if you are starting a new WP site. But those who are using it for years and had hundreds of downloads with the old version of the same plugin, this new version is really a frustration. Whats the point of this rewrite if there is no support or compatibility for the older downloads published with the same plugin.

Old Version Great. Can't install new version

Love version 3! A great, simple and easy to use plugin.

However, I need HELP!

I have tried to upgrade to the newer version (1.4.2) and I can't figure out how to do it as it keeps telling me its already installed when it isn't.

Should I delete Download Monitor from the plugins areas and then reinstall it? Or will everything disappear?

I'm ok with paid add ons as I feel this keeps the plugin going and supported. But I need to get the plugin working first.

Anyway help, much appreciated!

Very userful plugin.

Works well. Glad to see updated support site
By , for WP 3.8.1

I've had the earlier version of this plugin installed on a site for years. Has worked well but the documentation was a little too cryptic for me to get the most out of it. Now, with the new version and updated support site, I'm initially very pleased.

However, be advised that the summary page option is now a donation based addon. This caught me by surprise fairly late in the installation / configuration process. Thankfully, it wasn't too expensive and the plugin is quality.

Powerful but easy to use

Love it. I was adding downloads within 2 minutes of installing the plugin. Very configurable too but works great right out of the box.

Conflicts with Wishlist Member Plugin
By , for WP 3.8.1

We are using it [v1.4.2] with the latest build v2.8 of Wishlist and it conflicts with it - when we try to add a file [Add File] it does not work.
