Hey guys,

I want to offer a download only after the user gave the email adress. Is this possible right out of jdownloads or is there a possibility to connect to a newsletter tool in order to have double-opt-in?

Hi

In jD there is only one downloadable file per Download.  But by using Categories eg a Firefox category the user can see say several separate Downloads, eg Firefox for Windows, Firefox for Mac, and so on.ColinHave attached a file showing several downloads viewd in a category

HiWill try to answer your points but some of them are not quite clear to me.  I will initially check on the requested capability rather than detail each point but many aspects are covered in the Documentation.
  • The current version of jD is nor a beta version but is standard release v3.2.62  !! 
  • "Upload of files in multiple categories"  I read this as "Upload files into different categories"  Yes this is possible.
  • "ACL -> certain files should be visible only to registered users, other should be visible both to anonymous and registered users" Yes it is.  Requires use of ACL as that controls what a user can do and view Access levels as that controls whay=t a user can see. http://www.jdownloads.net/documentations/item/controlled-access-to-categories-and-downloads
  • "ideally the ACL should be per-file basis instead of per-directory only". Yes. ACL is on directories (Categories in jD terms) and on Files.  It uses the Joomla! ACL inheritance rules. http://www.jdownloads.net/documentations/item/notes-on-permissions
  • "A non Joomla Super-User should be able to publish uploaded files."  Yes this is available in the User Groups Settings section of the backend.  See http://www.jdownloads.net/documentations/item/introduction-to-user-group-settings  and http://www.jdownloads.net/documentations/item/which-user-group-is-used
  • "A document should allow a custom field to be defined on upload time -> e.g. a select list of 'document category'." jD has its own custom fields ('questions') which can be set up.  But I think you might mean can a front end user select things such as the Category (directory) that they want the downloadable file to be located. Yes they can - again in User Groups Settings.  Present version of jD does not yet support the Joomla! Custom Fields but that is work in progress.
  • "Search should allow selecting which field should be searched for the given keyword (e.g. Title, Description, Author, Custom filed 1, etc."  There is a search capability that covers the majority of items you noted except perhaps Custom Field.  This will probably change when jD supports Joomla! Custom fields as well as the current jD specific custom fields.
  • "When uploading a new file, the fields labels disappear if scrolling them over with a mouse cursor." This does not occur for me and has not previously been reported.  Could you please explain more in a specific topic with just that subject - not in this topic as this one is very general.
  • "The upload page has a tons of fields I would like to hide to not confuse the user." Which questions are asked is selectable in the UserGroups Settings section - Group Creation/Editing Settings tab available when you selecta specific User Group.
  • " Mouse copy/paste doesn't work in the description fields."  Have you set up to use Editor?  As in 8 above please use separate topic for more on this if you cannot resolve yourself.
I will try to help but it is much easier for me and more beneficial to other users if after this you use specific forum topics please.I suspect the 'weakest' point is the "search on anything you like" capability as not all things are seachable.
For reference jD is the top Download manager.

Bugs / Re: Dropboxlink funktioniert nicht mehr

TomJust an update on progress.
I have set up a Dropbox and allowed anybody who can view to download.Checked out downloading from Dropbox with direct link and with a trailing sequence of either ?dl=1 or ?raw=1 the the download occured.Using  ?dl=1 posed question of 'do  you wish to view or download'. Using ?raw=1 showed the file directly.S I have concluded my Dropbox was set up OK.
So I used these in jD on my test site
Initially when using my Dropbox files with the trailing sequence ?dl=1 or ?raw=1 in jD
I got the message:  "Notice  You do not have permission to download the requested file.  Contact the website operator if you are sure that this is incorrect."
I then modified some code to prevent the message and the downloading occured!  The file when downloaded still has an extension of "pdf_raw=1" or "pdf_dl=1" rather than just ".pdf"
I am looking into this furtherColin

Is it possible in new Jdownloads to upload several files for one item?

For example:

FireFox.
Description.

Files:
FireFox for windows.
FireFox for linux.
FireFox for mac os x.

Thank you!

The normal Link for example:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/pswgc0r9opzc4vt/beispiel-komponist.pdf?dl=0
must be changed to;
https://www.dropbox.com/s/pswgc0r9opzc4vt/beispiel-komponist.pdf?raw=1
for a regular download.

But both don't work anymore...

Greetings!
Tom

General / I have a problem
« Last post by skygreen2031 on 14.07.2018 10:41:11 »
Hello.

I successfully upgraded my test environment from jDownloads 1.9.2.10_beta to 3.2.6_beta. Unfortunately, the current version of jDownloads seems far from being usable even for intranet use only.

Let me first give a bit of background - I'm looking for following functionality:

    Upload of files in multiple categories.
    ACL -> certain files should be visible only to registered users, other should be visible both to anonymous and registered users - ideally the ACL should be per-file basis instead of per-directory only.
    A non Joomla Super-User should be able to publish uploaded files.
    A document should allow a custom field to be defined on upload time -> e.g. a select list of 'document category'.
    Search should allow selecting which field should be searched for the given keyword (e.g. Title, Description, Author, Custom filed 1, etc.


All mentioned features are some how implemented in jDownloads 3.2.6_beta, but I can't get it into a working state. On the other hand the biggest flaw of the 1.9.2.10_beta in my case is it doesn't support ACL-s (from above bullets 3 and 2).

Problems I'm experiencing with 3.2:

    When uploading a new file, the fields labels disappear if scrolling them over with a mouse cursor.
    The upload page has a tons of fields I would like to hide to not confuse the user.
    Mouse copy/paste doesn't work in the description fields.
    I can't get the search working so that I can select which field it search in; I noticed the mentioned functionality works on jdownloads.com web portal - any hint how to set it up with 3.2 or what should I use?



Basically I'm wondering if any of mentioned problems is a configuration issue?

Is there a road map when above mentioned problems will be solved?

Do you know of any other component like jDownloads that would suffice my needs? << the component doesn't need to be free; if it isn't, it should be of reasonable price.

Thanks you in advance

Hi
First another thought.  Have you tried creating a new Download with the latest jD and Joomla! versions to see if that works?
When jD is uninstalled one has the option to retain the jD data, images etc and the data base.

To go back  a version or so is best done on a test site first to check it works ok.  There can be no guarentees all will be well especially if there have been database structural changes!
Of course in any event you should do a full backup - I use Akeeba.
If you cannot get a test site then I suggest you contact Arno by PM.
If you do have a test site then Uninstall all of the jD plugins, modules and the Component itself selecting to retain all the jD information on the site.  Then you can install the older version.  It will probably ask for the install to be repeated using the same install procedure.
I would not do this untested on a working site.Colin
