Hello.. I am looking for a system where I can add 2 files to one download entry.. for example, my client wants to offer a .mp3 and a .wav version of the same audio track, and there will be many of these. He also wants the files in categories (or groups) BUT show them all on one page!

- I tried using Zoo Downloads, with a a plugin and this did work, but is very very slow when showing many files on screen together. I really like the look of Dropfiles, but do you think I could get it to work how I want? - Even if it can not do 2 files per download, maybe one of the layouts/themes would cater for a user friendly way to organize this?

Many thanks, James

Edit.. watching the Demo video again, tree structure looks like it could really solve my needs :)

Thanks for contacting us.
I'm not sure of getting what you mean, but with dropfiles you can add files directly in Joomla articles so you can add a category with 2 files inside one or some articles. Also you can present files with a tree view where the tree accordion is closed by default.

Hope it helps.

I have in my PC a structure of folders like this:

Folder 1
|--- Subtema A
|--- Subtema B
Folder 2
|--- Subtema C
|--- Subtema C.1
|--- Subtema C.2
Folder 3
|--- Subtema D
Folder 4
|--- File 1

Each folder has more or less 50 files, the question is: can i upload in 3 clics all the files and the structure of this in my dropfiles? And how can i make that?

The best way to do that is to use the file importer (activated through params) but you'll need to create the structure and upload files using FTP client.

Hi Tristan. I went ahead and bought the plugin and indeed the tree view solves my issue - I just used Wav and MP3 catagories under each track name. I made some modifications too, to have an html5audio player on the file info light-box, and also to serve the file direct, rather loading into PHP (as some where very large and caused issues when handled the default way.

Very good plugin! :)

Can I call your uploader inside of a form I have created and create dynamic upload paths?

If you call an editor with editor plugin you may do that, if not that may require some custom code.

Same concept, different file type. What if I have an image, but I have different formats. I just want to have the image name once, but you can download an eps, jpg or tif version but I don't want to duplicate the main one.

so it would be like
Picture of Product download: eps jpg tif
