Purpose

JotLoader native Joomla 1.5 component allows to present files exposed on the Joomla site for download in well-arranged layout. For better overview about downloading process here is simple download statistics included. Component was tested on Joomla 1.5.2 framework.

Download files can be grouped in categories with own description and customized layout. To each download file can be assigned Bug Tracker listing with the possibility for registred users to add new problem descriptions and comments. Site administrator can edit/add/delete any text message as well as change the problem status (pending/closed) from site front-end.

Front-end

Each download category is displayed in the front-end as compact table with category title, description and all released files each with the description as well.

Pressing the Download button allows in the standart manner to download the chosen file.

Adding of new problem descriptions is possible only for the registred users after login-in :

After adding the new problem we can see problem title and description in the Bug Tracker table (in pink color marking pending problem). Registred users can add remarks to problem definition via "Add text" link.

Administrator has more possibilities - Remove (problem from Bug Tracker table), Change (problem status) and Edit (any text) buttons.

Installation

In recent Joomla 1.5 versions (1.5.2) during component installation here is normal condition when warning of Installer occurs (pointing that de-DE language is NOT installed on your web site) :

This warning has NO influence on proper operation of JotLoader component.

Administration

In Global Settings it is possible to adjust :

  • source directory for files which will be downloaded (with selectable "Auto Detect" feature)
  • HTML Templates for category header, file header and file front-end presentation (inside the template text it is possible to use pre-defined tags)

Management of files categories and download files is performed in administration back-end in the standart manner.

Please take care when you like to delete download file from file list. When "Auto Detect" feature of JotLoader (in Settings admin page) is selected, then the DELETE button on the File List page is only removing the file from database table. Next auto detect event finds the download file in download directory on the server and file is (auto-detected) written back to database table. In this case you have to remove file from server download directory (for specific file on File Detail admin page - link underneath of File Location).

Some years ago I found Joomla Content Management System (CMS) - fascinating open-source world-wide project as very good and solid basis for creating and maintaining of radio amateur web sites. I am very glad that number of friends, clubs and organisations utilize the power of Joomla CMS. Last time I recognized new fresh impressive pages of OM9OT Old-Timers Club SARA Web Site or OK2IEN Web Pages. For more interesting examples see my list of Selected Joomla Ham Web Sites .
