And everything he does is top-notch, my personal favorite being Phoca Download: you can use it whether you need a simple download directory for your registered users or a cool video gallery with nice little video players neatly disposed with a download button for every video, all in a single page (no waste of time).
While one can complain about the copyright line which comes in all Phoca extensions, it's something so minimal near the high-quality (and nice results...and happy clients of ours, webdesigners) that's ridiculous to nag the developer about it. And after all, Jan (the developer) asks for no more than some little help in exchange for removing the copyright backlink, not necessarily financial help (such as translations, for example).
Keep up the great work Jan!
The developer makes a steady progress with adding new features and takes his extensions to the next level through seemingly small things that make the admin's live so much easier, e.g. by adding the button for the HTML editor that can include a link to a single download file, a whole category or even list all files in a selected category dynamically... right in your article. And by using this functionality you can even create your own modules (using the Custom HTML module type).
And support on their forum is fast.
Improvement: With great respect to the achievement made on this product, a little enhancements will make this product even more greater such as deleting uploaded files from frontend by file owner itself.
Hi, as written on Phoca.cz site, this feature is planned.
I would gladly give this extension, a 5 star rating if the documentation with it was better. As usability goes it's quite brilliant.
A little more organisation and detail in documentation would definitely make my opinion change from 4 stars to 5.
Thank you for a wonderful extension.
Hi, thank you for your review, see:
Thank you, Jan
my website is for commercial use, therefor the displayed link was no option for me. But after having made a donation I got a file tor remove the footer link. imho that's very fair due to the job the guys are doing. Condider using mor of the phoca stuff.
The component installed without a hitch. Setup and config was a breeze even without referring to the great Documentation. The included styles are a good start, and it took very little time for me to make the changes necessary to get it to look the way I wanted...
