The free edition of the CM Download Manager plugin has a lot of useful track & control features that will help you establish a powerful WordPress file directory and monitor downloads on your site.
Once installation is complete, CM Downloads manager will create a WordPress file directory, similar to the way that the WordPress Plugin Directory does. This is where you’ll be able to upload new files for download, including mp3, mp4, PDF, doc and any other file extension you choose, and define where and how you want them to be displayed. In addition, you’ll be able to view the download count and track how popular your files are.
The WordPress file directory will automatically generate a separate landing page for each file uploaded, which includes a support forum where users can post support requests or suggestions, and an index page with a list of all available downloads. This will make it easier for your users and visitors to find you online and navigate through your online file directory.
The CM Download Manager plugin provides you with the ability to directly manage which users or user groups have access to your downloads, which files are password protected and which are available for all site visitors.
