jDownloads exists in different releases for Joomla 1.5, 2.5 and 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 releases are published as beta in April 2014 with many new features.
Your review is not fair and not true:
For many thousand users works jDownloads without any problems!
To say, that i not reply the users queries is a lie!
I respond any post in my support forum as quickly as possible!
I think you has written this negative review, while you are frustrated, that I have your not coded (for free) your needed modifications.
When you need specially 'commercial' support, you must pay a 'commercial' extension! And also then you must pay for modifications!
Out of the box the component installs as a charm.
From that time on JDownloads does the work for you.
Just create your nested categories and JD creates the appropriate folder. Rename the category and JD renames the folder as well. If you want to upload files from a remote server, the best choice is to do it with the famous Extplorer and let JDownloads do the rest. It always has o look over your folders and if any file is changed JD changes the database entries. A lot of useful icons make your download section look modern.
For changing the layout you don't have to pay for subscriptions or templates. just copy the standard layout (which can't be deleted for safety reasons) and modify the arrangement of the placeholders as you want. That's it.
IMHO the best download component for Joomla! available. And don't forget to donate. We need this famous extensions for Joomla 1.6 too :-)
Thank you for such an outstanding JE and your support.
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.
