General question about email notifications
« on: 23.04.2014 18:25:41 »
Hello,

I'm using Joomla 3 / jDownloads 1.9.2.8 Beta.

I'm using jDownloads to make files available to groups of users. Users do not upload files, only download.

Is it possible (or will it be possible in a future version) to notify users who have access to certain download categories that a new upload has been posted (by me) in one of those categories? Something like a checkbox in the category configuration: "Notify users with access to this category each time a new download becomes available."

Best regards

Ray

Hi Ray,
sorry for the late reply.
Please note that you must update in the next time to the new version 3.2 (when we have a stable release in the next weeks).
But only with this new release is your request also not possible. But with a special plugin should it be possible.
Your wish sounds useful, so maybe can we add this feature also in the main component in the next release 3.3?  ::)
Best Regards / Gruß
Arno

Hi Arno,

No need to apologize, I'm sure you're a busy person! :-)

I'm rather new to open source in general and jDownloads in particular. Is there a path for a developer (me) to create a plug-in for jDownloads or is this something that only you do?

By the way, I just downloaded "com_jdownloads_1.9.2.10_beta_for_joomla_3.1.zip". Can I just install this over my existing version from the Joomla Extension Manager, or do I need to update manually (copy the files via FTP into the correct folders)?

Regards

Ray

You can use the Joomla installer.
