The OptDownload component lets you have a form on your site that will allow users to enter their name and email address in order to download files. You can easily see your opt-in users in your OptDownload control panel in the Joomla backend
I just needed a nice extension that I could showcase some of what we offer. Nothing too splashy. Just a "register to get the file."
OptDownload does just that.
Simple fast and easy to set up. No jumping through hoops to deliver a file.
This is a good application and use it for Joomla 3.2 and use it for sensitive documents at a higher ACL level to download and great to see it stores email addresses even if they are registered users. I had expected the names of the downloads that subscribed users used as this would be useful to see which downloaded files is used the most. And if there are more than one download files that they can select but I couldn't see how it was possible to select more than one file to download. I couldn't find any documentation to see if it was possible - perhaps a little checkbox next to the download filenames. I wasn't sure if the downloaded files weren't easily hotlinked and have made prevention using special settings within joomla. Thank you again for providing this good application.
