    Suggestion: 1 big zip file for all templates

    • Would suggest a one big ZIP files for all templates. So we don't need to manually download each.

      Also, what component is that that you use for 'files download management'?

    • hmm.. i'll have to see what i can do about the big download.. probably is to keep it updated every time one of the templates is modified.

      The component is latest RC of docman with some modifications to the docman layout templates.

    • You'll have to code it, because everyone has a different membership date. You could do it if you're server has a php friendly compression software loaded, but this can be a bit resource intensive depending on your load (also, I found that some people are really lazy, and will ALWAYS download the complete zip on every release, which can lead to bandwidth issues). In any case, it surely would be a nice thing to have.

    • What I'd rather see is a single zip file for each month's template (including Fireworks & PSD files), but which also includes a PDF with specific instructions for that template, module positions used, etc. That way, if someone cannot access the JW site for whatever reason (site down, no longer a member, whatever), at least you're not left high and dry trying to figure it out.
