QuickDownload Component

Editor's Note
  • This extension requires registration to download.
QuickDownload is a quick and safe way to share files with your users/friends/clients....

And it works very simple. Just 3 steps.

1. Add some files into administration area.
2. Select the files you need to share and generate for that files a unique code which will allow access to download those files.
3. Give the code, or the link with code included, to the persons you want to grant access.

As a Joomla beginner , I tried this component on my first Joomla Project, it integrated well, the problem is on the backend I have to dispense the code for the users (registered) for them to be able to download the files. Two thumbs up for file security.

The scope of services of QuickDownload is incredibly good! It provides much more than other free download component.

I had a small problem with my server. The support was incredibly quickly and competently. I practically never experienced such a good service.

Thank you very much!

Hesitated at first. But the extension REALLY surprise me. Simple, yet very well done. A few tips to make it even better will be 1. Be able to assign code to subcategories and 2. Will be a great option after creating the code and attached the file to be able to send an email to the person you what to share the file with. This last will be a definitely PLUS. Other than that users out there. Download the extension and tested your self you will not be disappointed.

I tested it on a Joomla 2.5 website and it was good. Thanks Ionut.

But the extension lacks an all important feature. The codes once generated and set for a particular file or files with total and daily views, cannot be regenerated with a new code for the same file download, assuming the codes are required by the administrator to reset and regenerate new ones over a set period of time.

Apart from that the extension is very good.

I've been looking for a simple yet safe component that would do just what QuickDownload does. The installation went well and the configuration as well.
Since I am using it on a french language site, I translated the strings shown to users so that they can understand. I can send you this simple translation if you need it. However, the french characters such as é à and so on were not displayed properly in the output.
Thank you for sharing this good component with all!

Thank you for your appreciation!
Regarding your issue with French characters this is most likely related with your files encoding, you should save your files as UTF-8 without BOM.

I needed the older version for Joomla 1.5 and Ionut was very quick to send it. This extension (old and new) saved me a lot of time and if there was 6 stars I would have selected it - because this deserves it! Thanks!

I use this component to limit and protect downloads of mp3 files. Quick and easy installation and configuration. In my case, excelent support: they solved a problem very quickly by email. The support forum does not work very well. Highly Recommended.

Was uncertain what to expect, however this is a good idea that is well executed. Simple, effective, and does the job. Thumbs up for the great work from team Beetso! Thanks guys.
