Viewing Files on the WordPress Downloads Index Directory

The CM Downloads Manager includes a dedicated WordPress Downloads Index Directory that is available for users on the front end, and lists all the downloads that have been uploaded to the plugin’s database.

We love our WordPress downloads index Directory because:

  • It has several different templates to choose from and can be further customized based on your needs.
  • It Shows in WordPress like any other post or webpage, and uses shortcode features that are easily customized and adjusted.
  • It has its own internal search engine and can also sort downloads according to popularity, votes or submission date.
  • Downloads can also be sorted according to category and be searched by a specific username that uploaded it.

Options available from the plugin’s control panel

While the WordPress downloads index page is mainly intended for front end users, admins can review all the downloads available from the administrator’s downloads directory on their WP control panel, where they can easily modify, password protect or even delete files from the downloads index.
You can also control the way that users are able to upload and download files and music from your WP website.

Downloads Index

The Download Index is equipped with an internal search engine that is capable of sorting results according to the latest and most popular downloads. Downloads can also be shown according to category and user who uploaded it.

Admin Moderation

Administrators have several tools available to help them moderate downloads. Administrators can prevent users who have lower WP roles from submitting downloads to your site. With the CM Download Manager plugin you can review downloads from the admin control panel, modify them, password protect or delete them altogether.
