  • Favourite
  • Report

Features:

  • Compatibility: Downloads Pro works well on Joomla 2.5, Joomla 3 and later versions.
  • Categories management: Downloads Pro allows you to create unlimited categories/subcategories. One of the greatest features is that when you change the configuration setting, it will apply to all categories. In general, the sub-categories permission inherited from parent categories and the component’s configuration. All properties assigned to a category (permissions, metadata, templates, etc.) remain after the category is copied or moved.
  • Documents management: Downloads Pro is not only helpful and powerful in managing documents but also in sharing a huge amount of document files. You can add title, multiple files/images, short and full description, version, license, document and demo url to every document.
  • Featured Documents: If one document is marked as featured, it can be managed in a specific section.These documents will display on the component’s frontpage.
  • Super easy files/images management: Files/images are listed in popup box and managed by folders. You can filter them by name or change the list's limitation. More especially, you can upload multiple files/images at one time with drag and drop files/images support.
  • Document License: Downloads Pro allows you to create licenses for documents. If a document is tied with a license, users will have to accept license agreement before downloading.
  • Download Logs: Download hits will be recorded with full information of username of downloader, document name and rate. Search tool and dropdown filters help you to track file downloads more easily.
  • Access Permission: You can set access level to allow a certain user group to download, rate or comment on documents.
  • Allowed Extensions: doc, docx, ppt, pptx, pdf, zip, rar are some default file extensions but you can add any file extension that you want.
  • New/Hot Label: Each document can be marked as New or Hot product. You are able to set number of days for making a product as New or Hot.
  • JComments: Download Pro supports the powerful and easy-to-use Ajax-based comment system - JComments.
  • Nice Template: With the template engine, it's easy to make a new template that inherited from default theme.
  • Dynamic Module: You can limit documents and select them from certain categories in the Downloads Pro module. Documents are sorted by various orders (name, date modified, most recent, most downloads) and download date format is customizable.
  • SEO Performance: The component is optimized superlatively for Search Engine due to Joomla full SEF/SEO compatibility and effective metadata performance. it’s simple to add meta description and meta keywords to a document. These will be used as the description of the page in the HTML output and generally displayed in the results of search engine.
  • Search Plugins: Search/Smart Search plugins supports you in searching for information in Downloads Pro’s content (description and short description).
  • Ajax Rating: This feature offers you a stars rating system which is integrated to Downloads Pro documents. The code control the rates with IP and store the user rate to the database with ajax and give a better user interface buttons working with jQuery.

A disappointment



Posted on 11 March 2014
If this product was not a commercial one, my rating would be higher, but when I've had to pay out up front, I expect a little more from an application.



I have used some of the competitors (Remository, PhocaDownload, and jDownloads) but none of them really met the demands of a new site that I am working on. After reading through the description and favourable reviews of Skyline, I thought that it might be worth trying for $25.



When I first installed it and ran it, the software reported an error. It was nothing serious - a deprecated command in one of the licence functions. I was able to find and fix this myself, but it wasn't a great start.



Overall, this component doesn't really offer anything more than any of its free competitors and certainly didn't meet the needs of the site that I'm trying to produce. I would caution anyone thinking of paying good money for this to have a serious look at one of the other packages first.



It seems that the service provided by Skyline is pretty good. I haven't bothered with it because I was able to fix the problem myself, but if you're not familiar with PHP, it may be worth paying something to get help when something goes wrong.



However, I've always found the non-commercial suppliers to be very helpful when there are problems so, for most people, I'm afraid I really wouldn't recommend paying for this package.
Owner's reply: Hello,

First of all, thank you so much for using our Downloads Pro.
However, I don't know what feature and how our component can't meet your expectations.
You said you read the description before buying so you could surely know what it can do, compared to free components that you've used.
Therefore, if the component doesn't offer anything more and meet your needs, how can you decide to buy it?
It would help us a lot if you contact us and answer these questions.

Thank you!

BEST COMPONENT

I love it, great component and fast support. Great Job !!!
I needed a download module that is able to handle mp3-downloads for a music production studio. The tracks shall bee seen in public, but downloads in registered mode only.



The installation was easy, so the "documents" handling.



I had a minor problem at the list view for downloads. After contacting the support team the bug was fixed in no time. Now the Skyline Download pro extension works exactly as I want.



Summary: Excellent download extension, excellent support !



Thanks
I had some problems and some extra requests for this extension.

The support department helped me very fast and friendly, very satisfactory. Now the Skyline Download pro extension works exactly as I want. Top extension with a top support. Thanks
