Hi,

I'm most impressed by the myriad of options in Jdownloads...
I really just want to use it to track downloads, so I'm using the content plugin to insert individual document links into articles, that works great, thanks.

I have 2 questions (I did search the forum and read the docs before asking...)

1. I need to disactivate the component category view on domain/component/jdownloads/ and also the search options. I couldn't find an option in the backend to do this. Can you please point me in the right direction ?

2. My site doesn't have any front-end users. I want to be 100% sure that any front end uploading capabilities are disactivated (for security reasons). Is there a specific option for this ?

Thanks again :-*

HiIf you have no visible jDownloads menu items then a front end user cannot see the component part of jD
So I would create just one jD menu item List All Categories and set its access to Super Users.  That menu item is needed.  but only front end logged on super users would see it - you could also make it a hidden menu item

Hi,

Thanks for your reply. I have done this, but the domain.com/component/jdownloads page is still visible to all users.
It shows the one category of documents I have. I would really like to disable this page and the category page linked from it.
Is this possible ?

HiWere you logged on as the Super User?  They will see the menu item and hence on clicking that they will see the Categories list.  Try it without logging in on the front end.
To hide a menu item in the front end then in backend go to menus and select Main Menue then in the menu items select the jDownloads List all Cats.  For that menu item goto the Link Type tab.  In the options on that page set Display in menu to No. Then Save & Close
The menu item is now hidden, that is not visible to anyone in the front end.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply. No, I was not logged in as a super user.
The menu link is not visible, that's not my problem, it's the fact that the URL domain.tld/component/jdownloads/ works.
I would like for the URL to not work at all :)

Is there a way to do that ?
