Tooltip Glossary Frequently Asked Questions

What is the purpose of this add-on?

This add-on for Downloads Manager allows guest visitors on the site to upload files without logging in.

To learn more about this add-on see this Overview.

Is there any way to prevent spam uploads since anyone on my site will be able to upload files?

To learn more about this feature see this Help article.

How do guest users upload files to my site?

Provide access to the same upload page as you give to your logged in users, either through a link or a menu link somewhere on your site. This will take the guest to the page where they may upload files. You will need to ensure that you’ve enabled uploads for all users (including guests).

Is it necessary for guest users to supply a name and email to upload files using the add-on?
