    Hi mate can you send me a copy of that plugin please? I'll need to see the source files. Reading the plugin info it seems I shouldn't have much of an issue making it compatible with mine.

    You'll be happy to hear I've added support for Woocommerce Products List now. I've tested it myself and seems to work a treat with their default plugin settings. As you'll probably dig a little deeper into their plugin let me know if you have any issues.

    Here's an image of it in action.

    Hi Richard! Hope all is going well.

    I have a feature request that I've seen in a non WC site and would be a great addition to your Pro version.

    In the form where the download button is displayed, some information is integrated to say when the file was last downloaded if ever AND what I feel would be great and something I haven't seen in WC, allow the user to write notes about the Download/Product that save for them to see when they next view the product. Maybe in the Account section, users can display all downloads with notes attached, or display all notes with links to the products.

    Also, I use TI Wishlists so users can add their products to a favorites list.  Something like this would be perfect for your Pro version.

    Just some ideas.

    Thank again.

    Hello Richard.

    Enjoying the plugin, been a good purchase for us.

    Just a couple of requests if possible relating to the download log page. Something we're conscious of is that on a busy site with lots of users, these pages are going to fill up fast (although I'm aware that it can be disabled completely) so with that in mind:

    1. A 'delete all' function would be good so that bulk deleting them is made easier. I know you can click the uppermost tick box and select all that way but if you have a lot of pagination it becomes time consuming. Hitting a single button to delete them all in one go would be useful.

    2. On that note, an export to csv function would also be good so that these can be downloaded for future reference or viewing via a spreadsheet. This I think is crucial. Otherwise you're stuck with the choice of watching the logs grow bigger, irrecoverably deleting them or not having them enabled in the first place.

    3. Just for troubleshooting it may be useful to have a 'status' icon next to each download. So at a glance you can see that the download has completed successfully. I know from past experience that you can have a typo in a download path and the download fails for users but nobody ever bothers to tell you!

    Cheers

    James

    Hi mate I'll look into #1, but #2 is already in the current version 🙂

    #3 sounds odd, downloads shouldn't record unless successful anyway, but I'll look into it.

    Ah! It's in the Stats settings - can see it now. I was looking for a button on the actual log page, didn't realise you had hidden it 😉

    Regarding #3 - if it doesn't record an unsuccessful download then that's fine. I assumed that it recorded all downloads, including attempted and failed but that's fine in that case, don't worry about it.

    So after all that just #1 please 😀

    Have a good weekend mate.

    Cheers

    Hello!
    I was not aware you had a requests post.   I have 2 requests:

    #1 Maybe through cookies a subscriber is recognized so they do not have to input their email for each download.  This would be great for people that have a lot of freebies.  I have 14 free downloads and my visitors are not enjoying having to add their email 14 times.  🙁

    #2 Ability to add new subscribers to a merge tag or at least a list group.  I would like to keep all my subscribers to one list in MailChimp and a simple Merge tag that reads Free download would make things a lot smoother to keep organized in Mailchimp.

    Thank you and keep up the amazing work 🙂
