Recently installed Simple Download Manager (SDM). Had some issues that were due to how my caching was working. Got timely response from Support and was able to resolve. SDM is like having a Media Library dedicated to Downloads.

The logging helps you see who is downloading your files and how many times it is downloaded.

A lot of flexibility is provided on how your download is presented.

Another "time saving" function is to have an "Insert Download" icon in the MCE editor, to make it easier and faster to insert a download in a Post.

Awesome plugin
By , for WP 4.2.2

I was really in need of a plugin such as this and i came across this plugin. It really made my work easier and i was able to meet up with my deadline. The plugin have a wonderful documentation, the codes are well written and structured. However, this assisted me in creating a custom script to the plugin.

Keep up with the good works guys.

I need to update from another DM
By , for WP 4.2.2


I should like to update from another download manager, but I want the new one no to have the problem I encountered with the actual one.
With my DM, each time the same IP asks from some file, the number of hits for this file is incremented by one. This led a guy to download many times the same files, disturbing the global stats. So I should like multiple downloads of the same file with the same IP to increment this file's hit just by 1. Is it possible with your solution?
By the way, if I switch from the previous DM to your solution, I need to manually intialize the files' hits (with admin privilege, of course), to start with my actual stats. Is it possible with your solution?

Best regards

Hoping For More...

Since this plugin was created for Tips & Tricks HQ, I was hoping this was going to be compatible with WP eStore, but it's not. It also only monitors files on your own server, so if you're using Amazon S3 for file storage and protection, this download monitor will not work for that, either.

works perfekt, but it would be great when you add the option [new_window] to the settings to let it make as standart for new downloads!

I was using another download plugin but it was complicated and not working properly. I needed to mainly track my free downloads easily. This one is perfect. Its simple to use and looks professional. Love it!
