Very nice and clean component. It would be nice if we can allow user to upload files thru the front end.

This is a good extension but even after paying the suggested donation there seems to be no response from the developer to provide backlink free version as p-romised, even after direct contact by me via email.

Hi samot, thank you for your reveiew but please the next time use the contact form instead of posting unreal problems here. Every substainer gets a version without backlink. Please look in your spam folder or check if tour PayPal transaction was completed successfully.

All ok, but there are some bad things.
1. Files are uploaded in randowm folders, we don't have posibbility to define folders where they are stored.
2. Searching a site by filename or it's description (using search modules) doesn't show a files.

Thank you for your feedback oeriel!
Random folders are unavoidable for security reasons: keeping files position secret increases download centers security also in case of wrong file permissions.
I fixed the filename filter, now it works properly :)

Really excellent layout, easy to use and smart. If you need something light to manage downloads with a pretty site interface, this is the solution.

Take care: if you select a user in the document settings, only this one will be able to see and download the file!

Component simple and very useful for private or public downloads.

You can still improve, but worth a try.

Hi gnumax! Thank you very much for your review. I admit that the old version wasn't so exciting to use but currently i completely rewrote extension code to allow it to run on Joomla! 3. It's really user-friendly. I hope you'll try it so you can also give me suggestions about how to improve it.
