#2682 assigned enhancement

temporarily disable files/groups

How about temporarily disable downloads? Background: Imagine multiple developers delivering their downloads, which have dependencies to the other downloads of the same group. So one could disable the group for download until all files are complete. Another case: A single file should be disabled because there are some (temporary) issues e.g. concerning copyrights, which came up after the download was added and need to be checked.

The whole thing could be realized by a checkbox. Of course, this would need an additional database field.

Ok, this is good idea. I think this could be implemented in some of next releases of Downloader. Disabled file should be seen in list of downloads or not? Or is it necessary to add option for disable (visible in list) and hide (unvisible in download list)?

"Disabled" should mean it is shown to the admin only (on the admin page), and in the statistics of course. But not on the download page itself - that's the idea behind it. Thinking about your notes, somebody may want to display a note instead (like a hint to the visitor that and why this file is currently unavailable) - but that would be an extra feature for a later release (except you want to include it along - no problem for me as long as it doesn't delay the whole thing ;)
