jD Demo ScreenshotWhat is jDownloads?

jDownloads is an extensive Download Manager for the award winning Content Management System (CMS) Joomla. It is a free GPL Extension with many special functions!

Despite the many options, it is easy to use as it integrates seamlessly into the Joomla administration and has the familiar structure and appearance of the Joomla core components. This makes familiarisation much easier.

Get a first overview by taking a look at the list of the most important functions here or visit the new jDownloads Demo installation with some application examples to see what is possible with this download manager. However, this demo only contains the most frequently used functions, as a complete overview is not possible due to the many variations and options. It therefore only shows a few possibilities as an initial overview.

Makes your downloads management easy!

 The original creator of JComments has decided not to upgrade to a Joomla 4 version!
However the 'estreme' organsation have created a Joomla 4 version.

The Joomla 4 compatible version of JComments from estreme can be downloaded here.  Please also see the jDownloads Documentation for more details.

JComments 4 is an extensive comment extension for Joomla 4. To use it with the jDownloads series 4 you must download this file.  Afterwards copy the unzipped file, com_jdownloads.plugin.php,  to: components/com_jcomments/plugins (and overwrite the old version).   jDownloads version 4.0.17 beta (or newer) is required.

You have the correct version if the archive file name is 'com_jdownloads.plugin_4.1.zip'

Make sure that the option "Activate support for all Joomla content plugins?" is activated in the jDownloads configuration Frontend tab
Note: Comments are only shown in the Download Details page. But the amount of comments can be viewed in the Categories, All Downloads and My Downloads page. Do not use Komento and JComments at the same time!

A short instruction as PDF file.

Important note: The part with the upgrade process to Joomla 4 only serves to illustrate the jDownloads upgrade and is not intended as a general Joomla upgrade guide. For this, many more things have to be taken into account. You can find comprehensive instructions for this here, for example: https://docs.joomla.org/Joomla_3.x_to_4.x_Step_by_Step_Migration

It is not possible to upgrade directly from the much older version 3.2.x to version 4! In such cases, it is always necessary to upgrade to version 3.9 first. Only then can an update to version 4 be carried out.

  • But new functions and features will be added step by step in later versions.

Important information

  • It is not possible to upgrade directly from the much older version 3.2.x to version 4! In such cases, it is always necessary to upgrade to version 3.9 first. Only then can an update to version 4 be carried out.
  • If you want to update an existing jDownloads installation 3.9.x to version 4, please watch this PDF tutorial first: 

  • For the update, however, at least version must be installed! This must be done before you switch to Joomla 4, after that it is no longer possible!
  • If the update attempt is aborted with a message about corrupt DB tables, please read the instructions here to solve the problem.
  • Also, always make a complete backup before updating!
  • As always, we accept no liability for any data loss.
  • If you find and report a bug, we aim to fix it as quickly as possible. This will be helped when reporting a bug to give relevant details so we are able to reproduce the problem.

Our special thanks go to the many users who had signed up to participate in the extensive testing.

Developers whose Joomla extensions support jDownloads in any way, or have developed their own plugins or modules for this purpose, must rework their extensions a little bit to be compatible with jDownloads 4.
