OSDownloads is Now Free for OSTraining Members

During the first half of 2012, we've been trying to make OSTraining membership as valuable as possible.
So, we've been working hard to move all our external extensions into the OSTraining membership area. That process is now complete with the arrival of OSDownloads.
OSDownloads is an extension to help manage your downloads. It allows you to easily provide downloads in exchange for emails, which can in turn be automatically imported in MailChimp upon download.
OSDownloads is the only downloads extension on the JED that allows the administrator to collect emails in exchange for the download (of course it's optional). This is useful if, for example, you want to collect emails for your newsletter or if you want to collect emails so that the users who download can be notified later via email. This method gets rid of "Registration require to download" if you simply want to collect emails.
At the time of this writing, it's the only downloads extension on the JED that collects emails and imports them into MailChimp (of course it's optional).
- Provide Downloads and collect e-mails (optional)
- MailChimp integration (optional)
- Nested categories
- Add a before and after description (both optional and both use the WYSIWYG editor that you have installed on your site which makes it very nice for your clients to use)
- Add an Agreement or Terms of Service (optional)
- Add a documentation link (optional)
- Add a demo link (optional)
- Add a support link (optional)
- A lightbox for the download.
- Search Engine Friendly
- Basic stats
- Translatable in the component (so no need to use language files)
