I successfully upgraded my test environment from jDownloads 18.104.22.168_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 22.214.171.124_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
