Hi I wanted to check to see that WP File Download could do what I need for a site. #1 We want to have a section where all of our downloads are available and users can search via categories for downloads that fit their needs and #2 also have the ability to download individual files on separate pages. It looks like I can do that but wanted to make 100% sure!

The second question, is it possible to customize the icons for the downloads with an image file, such as a thumbnail of the file contents? Or are we limited to just changes to the colors?

Thank you!

Hi,

Thanks for contacting us here about this extension.

Yes, we have a search engine, so users can search files through categories and then download them.
You can check our demo: https://www.joomunited.com/wordpress-demo/wp-file-download-search-engine/
Or go to our documentation for more information:

The second question, is it possible to customize the icons for the downloads with an image file, such as a thumbnail of the file contents? Or are we limited to just changes to the colors?


Yes, you can add your custom icon; however, a thumbnail will be generated automatically in the future version.

Hope it helps!

Hi,

I ask myself the same question as this person.
I want to use WP File Download to manage photos. Is it possible to have thumbnails of photos instead of icons for image files?

Thank you per advance.

Can you customize the thumbnails, or will they automatically be generated from the download file? Also you said this would be a future version - is there an ETA on when that will be available?

Hi @all,

Let me explain clearly about the features.

- We are working on the new icons, then you can create/upload your own represent icons for file types.
The thumbnails for images has not been planned yet.

- The previewer for some content files: doc, pdf,... so users can preview some first pages of the document.
This is something we've planned in version 5.0.

Hope it helps!
Kind regards,
