Password 2 Download is a compact module for Joomla! 1.7 and 2.5 that provides password protection for your download links.

I've written this module as a part of one of projects that I am working on. The idea about it was to create simple environment to prevent downloading some specific contents by random website visitors. Another idea was to create it independent from Joomla! Registration Component.

So there it is.

Basic Features:

  • Easy to install and implement
  • Simple, still effective password protection
  • Restrict download to registered users ( if needed )
  • Prevent direct downloads
  • Supports most mime types

And how does it work? Follow these instructions:

  1. First download the module. ( Link to the Downloads section )
  2. Install it.
  3. Go to Module Manager and find Password 2 Download module
  4. Setup password you want your links to be protected with
  5. Setup up to 10 download links
  6. Publish it
  7. Test it

PHP > 5.2
JavaScript (jQuery)

NOTE: Download files are passed through php to hide real urls and prevent direct downloads. It means this solution is not fitted to handle large files!

Enjoy :)

This is a very useful module and it's exactly what I was looking for but it has a major bug: It doesn't work when using the module multiple times in the same page/position.

It only works for the first instance of the module. This is actually a major bug for me since I need to have different sets of downloadable files in the same page. Also, it would be very nice if I could upload unlimited files for each instance but I can live with that.

Alternative, much simpler approach to multilingual websites. Simple solution dedicated to websites that use multiple languages pararelly (e.g. some articles are in english, some contents are in german, some in italian etc.) In general it is NOT for managing translations! Plugin, when properly installed and setup, will automatically change the website front-end language according to the language declared in article/menu parameters (more on the plugins website). It will also keep referal language context for both, Search and User functions. ( component translation will change according to the site, component was fired on ) Note 1: I strongly recommend enabling system plugin "Language Code" to keep up with SEO requirements. Note 2: DO NOT USE it with native Language Filter. That would be all. Waiting for your feedback :]

1.08.3 HOT FIX - HTTP to HTTPS change myFlickr - powerful Joomla Content Plugin for easy and painless flickr integration. Documentation: Examples: FAQ: UPDATE 1.08 All about code cleanliness (no more unnecessary whitespaces) css file loads only when needed (always before) FOR JOOMLA 1.5 USERS: After several requests I've released "new" legacy version with cache support added. Enjoy. What's new ? Caching! Simple, but effective caching system of Flickr API responses provides at least 100x faster code execution than before - literally ( Code execution per gallery reduced by from ~0,7 sec. to 0,002 sec. ) Several galleries in one article shouldn't be a problem any more. Important Note: Make sure that folder /plugins/content/myFlickr/myFlickr/cache is writable - it is necessary for cache function to work properly. No more support for Joomla 1.5 and 1.6 - code has been reduced and tailored specifically for Joomla 1.7 Minor tweaks and fixes (also in myFlickr Editor Button) MAIN FEATURES: Different photo-feeds : User, Photosets, Galleries, Powerful Search Function! Display photos as simple lists or flexible galleries! Now with effective Caching! use Fancybox, Colorbox or write your own handler to display galleries Multiple, predefined CSS styles (easly adaptable to any template) Customize! : Set your defaults in plugin parameters, change them on the single gallery level display different galleries in one article Use powerful random option Intelligent resize functions Link your galleries directly with Auto-Find closest size Usage Example (sample query): {myFlickr}feed=recent, displaymode=gallery, gallerytype=colorbox, thumbsize=t, imagesize=l{/myFlickr} Explained: Get photos recently uploaded on flickr, display them as gallery, user colorbox js library, set size for thumbnails... To get full list of properties see documentation. myFlickr Editor Button handles most parameters - I recommend installing it.
