Easily attach files to articles for download. This is a custom field plugin that will enable attachment of any file type as defined in the settings. It does NOT allow file upload! It merely reads from a defined directory where the files are located. How the files are placed in that directory is the concern of the user. Either FTP or the Joomla media manager.

Demo

The custom field is being used as the file download manager for this site. What you see is what you will get in the plugin.

Features

  • Download count
  • File information (file size, MD5 hash value)
  • File type definition
  • Backend download count table

Usage

Add a new custom field to the Joomla article manager. Choose CMSE Files.

When the extension is installed, it creates a directory in media/cmse/cmsefiles where the default file storage will be located. There is an option to set a different file directory per instance of the custom field.

The plugin will scan the directory for files matching the file extension(s) set in the File Types field. The method is .zip|.tgz|.pdf

Attach a file to an article by selecting from the field during article editing.

View download report in admin by entering edit view of the field and click the tab labeled Download Report.

Is there anyway to increase the download counter?

Yes but it requires editing the txt files in the folder named stats. There is no simple admin tool. If there are multiple requests for this function, it will be added.
