Suggestions for managing downloadable files in Joomla?

  • Suggestions for managing downloadable files in Joomla?

    Posted 4 years 10 months ago
    • I have a site that offers free downloads and I'm wondering if I should be using some kind of manager instead of just linking to the ZIP files on the server.

      I think I want some kind of CAPTCHA or at least something that will prevent or reduce hotlinking of files from other sites.

      I have tried Phoca Downloads and jDownloads but I think I'm just too thick to figure it out, and I couldn't seem to find tutorials on how to use them. Either way, they seemed like they might be more complicated than what I need.

      Any recommendations or suggestions?

    • Hi there,

      I tend to use DocMan but if you found jdownloads tough then DocMan will also be hard but they do have documentation. So do Phoca.

      You could try Attachments for Joomla - jmcameron.net/attachments/

      Hope this helps 8)

    • Thanks for the reply!

      I've used attachments before...I'm looking for something a little neater. And I can't seem to figure out if it supports CAPTCHA or some similar protection.

      The same goes for Phoca, really.
