Introduction

Downloads, Newsletter, Mailing & Distribution Lists, Email

OSDownloads is an extension to help you manage your downloads. It's simple to use and allows you to easily provide downloads in exchange for emails, which can in turn be automatically imported in MailChimp upon download.

  • Get this

Price: Free

At the time of this writing, it's the only downloads extension on the JED that allows the administrator to collect emails in exchange for the download (of course it's optional). This is useful if, for example, you want to collect emails for your newsletter or if you want to collect emails so that the users who download can be notified later via email. This method gets rid of "Registration require to download" if you simply want to collect emails.

At the time of this writing, it's the only downloads extension on the JED that collects emails and imports them into MailChimp (of course it's optional).

Features:
- Provide Downloads
- Collect Emails (optional)
- MailChimp integration (optional)
- Nested Categories
- Add a before and after description (both optional and both use the WYSIWYG editor that you have installed on your site which makes it very nice for your clients to use)
- Add an Agreement or Terms of Service (optional)
- Add a documentation link (optional)
- Add a demo link (optional)
- Add a support link (optional)
- A lightbox is used for the download.
- Search Engine Friendly
- Basic stats...more will be added in the future
- Add a menu for one or multiple categories of files
- Add a menu for a single file

We are planning on adding a lot of new features if there is interest in the extension. If you have any requests, be sure to let us know. Also, we would love to build a custom solution for your business or your clients if you need it and are willing to sponsor us.

The documentation is not too bad, but if you miss something then support is so good you will be up and running in a flash

The team is generous offering free support and new feature request.

One of the most important things for those who work with joomla or other cms, is to solve the problems as soon as possible so customers want. Ostraining, since I know them, have an excellent policy in support customers, I checked again, its great efficiency and effectiveness, I can only give the best score, congratulate them and recommend them for their excellent work.

I have no doubt that any extension that they make will be a helpful tool for us, and if there is any problem with this extension, I'm sure I will get the help needed to fix it.

Congratulations to Nick for his warmth and interest in helping me.



Keep well !!


Excellence Personified!

If you note the latest update to this extension is 10/7/2014. That's because of me. I had an issue getting it to work on my site. Nick checked into it, found the problem and fixed it. He kept in constant contact with me during the interim and sent the latest version to me via email. I tried it and it worked. I am only now able to truly brag about it as I ran a quick test. It is now fully functional on my site and I am getting what I wanted - email addresses for complimentary downloads. I remind anyone reading this review, this extension is FREE! Thank you OSDownloads. I didn't mention I caught him via phone about 5 minutes before their closing time and was encouraged to send an email to support. I am a satisfied customer who received excellent service for an excellent product.


I can only recommend this component as well as Nick and his team ! I had some minor issue and it was solved professionally and friendly. Not a "standard" in many support teams today - here you find it.


Awesome


Posted on 16 June 2014

OSDownload has worked as advertised since installing it. Nick provides excellent customer service. If you are looking for a good download program, then I highly recommend this one.


OSDownloads is quick, clean, and easy to use. The recent Joomla 3.3 update caused a little bit of funky behavior, but Nick was back to my Email request for help within 10 minutes. A few Emails later and he had a hot fix in place. This is all for a free component, mind you. Great all-around experience. Try it out!


After mucking around with forms and extensions that conflicted with the site, this extension worked perfectly. Any issues I had on installation were answered immediately with unbelievably fast and friendly support. Their communication is absolutely fantastic. With so many clients wanting 'opt-in' features on their sites this is a perfect solution.

OSDonate was the first Paypal Donate Button for Joomla 2.5 and Joomla 3. It's packed with features, it's simple to use, and it even hovers in a fixed position on the page (optional)! It's a great choice for anyone who wants their donation button noticed. The hover feature is especially useful for someone who wants a full page layout, such as Joomla developers who have a forum and can't put a donate button in a regular module position because of "lack of space". Main Features: -Easy to Setup -Secure -Integrates with Paypal -Lots of Options (if needed) -Hovers/Floats on page while scrolling!

OSMeta is a metadata manager for Joomla sites. We created OSMeta because we couldn't find a metadata extension that was simple and usable enough for our needs. OSMeta should definitely be in your SEO toolbox. OSMeta is ridiculously simple. Don't expect complicated features. Just expect it to be reliable and easy-to-use. It allows you to add metadata to all your article via a single screen, which makes editing fast. Both title and description meta data are available to you: Title: This title is shown in search engine results and in the browser. It should be no more than 70 characters long. Description: This description is not seen by users but can be shown in search engine results. This should be no longer than 160 characters. We've also added a character counter to make it easy to see when a text is just right or too long. Next, we'll be adding front-end editing. After that we're planning on adding a scoring system to show which items need the most work.

OSpam-a-not is the easiest way to protect your site from spam. OSpam-a-not uses two unobtrusive techniques to protect your forms from a flood of spam. First, OSpam-a-not uses a Time Gate. This is a hidden timestamp that records how long it took to fill in a form. If the form was submitted more quickly than humanly possible, we can block the submission. Second, OSpam-a-not uses a Honey Pot. A text field is added to the form and hidden by adding a style tag at the end of the document head tag. It isn't visible to a human user, but a spambot doesn't see that and fills in the field anyway. If we find anything at all in that field when the form is submitted, we've caught a spambot in the honey pot! And the form is blocked.
