Download Manager Frequently Asked Questions
Please check the user guide to learn more about this plugin.
How do I upgrade CM Download Manager?
Is it Possible to localize the forum for languages that don't appear on the list?
Language files are located under the /lang directory in the plugin. You can take any existing .po file and change the non English description to your custom language. You can then use a po to mo converter like in here http://po2mo.net/ to create the mo file. Here is an example of how the original English text and the translation look in the po fileAfter creating these two files, copy them to the language directory. You are also welcome to send them to us so we can include them in the plugin pack.
Is there a way that users can download files without logging in?
Can I add custom CSS to my downloads landing pages?
Is it possible to upload zip folders to the downloads directory?
Absolutely! If you want to allow users to upload multiple files to your downloads directory, for example a bunch of software files or musical tracks, zip folders will provide the ultimate solution. They will save you and your users both time and storage space. Zip folders can easily be created on your computer and then uploaded and downloaded either individually or in bulk.
