Hello,
Jd questions

1- how do the passwords work – can you point me in the direction of documentation or a quick overview please.
2- I dont want to mess anything up, but how do I change name of fixedcategorycreate
3- when and uploader submits, it is approved and published by admin…. What happens if uploader edits item, is it still published or admin approve and publish again?  I would like admin to have to approve and new downloads and edited existing downloads – is this possible?
4- how can I show publishing time frame, start & finish? (in file and download details pages.
5- how can I show {views_value} in files layout?
6- can I have a total number of downloads available per download, (not user limits, but global number available across all users) ALSO, can I show this element in files & download details layouts
7- how does report link work? Point me to documentation or brief overview please
8- on the descriptions tab/page of the add download form, can I have a WYSIWYG ed showing,  for uploaders to use ? I have tried settings but nothing is changing?
9- can I have short description and long description following after?  Or how does it work?  Ie  short description is = (description) in files layout, yet short description is long description {long_description} shown on downloads details page…  I have truncated the description on files page, how do I show full short, followed by long description on the downloads details page please?
10- what is the best way to search jDownloads?  I want to search all text in files layout.  Ie, title, price, author, description, tags etc…… is it best to use jD search and focus on putting all info into tags, or should I use Joomla smart search module or something please?

Hi
Because you have replied to your own set of questions I can only reply to the last one!!!  It is challenging to have multiple questions in one post!!!!
BUT I have copied you point 15 as well

The buttons shown in the image are because  some 'editors-xtd' type plugins are active (published) - these are being shown by the Editor not by jD.  One of the plugins, the Download one, allows people editing an article say to to easily add a download link to a jD Download.   It is a plugin called "Button - jDownloads Content "
There are very many articles dealing with many jD topicssee  http://www.jdownloads.net/  suggest you look at these.

The Button images are CSS controlled. You can customise them in jD - Config - Pictures Tab - CSS Button Settings section (NOTE there are Image buttons in the current release but they are discontinued in the next major series (jD3.9)
There is already a master css style for jD.  But you can add you own CSS in the Custom css file.
One thing that will not be easy  is to set each Download to have a different fontColinPS please, please ask one question per topic  It makes it much easier for everyone to check on porevious querries

Hi wacl3,
you want really an answer on all your questions?

I hope you have read this hint here:

Read before the jDownloads documentation here.

Use the search function on these forums!

Normally I fix all posted (reproducible) posted bugs quickly. But please understand, that it is not always possible.
Fact is, that jDownloads is an open source and not a commercial project. Anybody Joomla user can download and use it for free. So when you need commercial support, you must also use a commercial (not free) extension!

You need modifikation or additional features?

Fact is, that every user has other wishes for the jD output or functionality. So it is not easy for me to comply all this wishes, and something it is not possible to do it only for a single user. When a user need very special functions, he can contact me via PM. So I can send him an offer.

I am always willing to make small modifications for free. But understand, that I need time for it.

I'm really speechless about your expectations!

Best Regards / Gruß
Arno
