jDownloads exists in different releases for Joomla 1.5, 2.5 and Joomla 3.1/3.2. So make sure, that you download the correctly version for your Joomla.
Many language files are always included. Many others exists in our download area or on www.transifex.com.
The previously announced complete new jDownloads 2.5/3.2 release is still in work and will be published end 2013. It comes with many new features.
Did I mention it is free! I can't believe it, but it is, so if you use and like this extension, please donate to the project because they deserve it.
Thanks for everything!
Out of the box, the component, modules and plugins are most likely more than enough for most users. For my uses i actually require less options and the ability to customise the layout and design heavily.
I was able to do everything i wanted with ease except for a very specific need that most people will not have. So here i am, this is the first time i have written a review, and i was moved to sign up here and do so by the most excellent support that Arno provided me with.
Being a complex matter to communicate it took some time to figure out the problem and how to solve it, but Arno was there every step of the way, providing the type of support that other component purveyors do not.
The problem was solved and i would advise those in search of a download component to save yourselves some time and heartache, try jDownloads first.
Rapid help is offered on the forum.
Minor suggestion: FAQ could be more extensive and some sort of documentation might be helpful.
jdownloads.com is the best way to have help and information about this extension.
Many thanks for this work and a special one to Claude Lendrevie for his french translation package.
thanks for your review.
Check the layout administration in the jDownloads backend. Here you can easy change what you will in the layouts. You must not use the jDownloads .css file. This is only a option. Many thousand user find the layout management from jdownloads useful, easy and better as in many other addons.
the functionality is great and awesome and incredible for any download site.
but of course we can change the icons to anything.
thanks for your review.
You can change everytime the icons. Create your own or search other free icons in the internet and copy it to the jDownloads icon folders on your server. Promptly you can use it. You can also view in my download area. You find also her a few new icon sets.
1. Enable moving multiple files to another categories.
2. Enable moving multiple sub-categoris to another categories.
This is like moving article to another category in joomla article manager.
many thanks for your review. When you has questions or suggestions, please post it in the support forum on my site.
I was looking for a comprehensible and user friendly download module I could easily implement and found everything in your Extention!!!
Thanks a bunch! and guys, you have to go and get the JDownloads Content Plugin to use together in articles!
So I started to look for something else. I tried Remository but it just didn't install (blanc screen).
Then I found jDownloads. Unbelievable what a program! Everything I had been missing in Docman is in here. I just looked at jDownloads for a couple of hours now but it's an amazing piece of software.
There are many many options for customizing. It saves files into subdirectories, it's very easy to upload a file, it has a good search plugin, it has a nice dropdown menu for easy navigation, the layout is customizable, it picks up files which were uploaded by a regular ftp-program.
I like it very much!
