#7801 new enhancement

Details page for downloads

Reported by: ak@… Owned by: rjollos
Priority: normal Component: DownloadsPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.12


Some information like the upload time is interesting to have but too much information if you got a long list of downloads. Would be nice if there would be a button next to each entry that shows all the properties for that download. This way one could hide stuff like size or uploader and have a simplified view on all the downloads.

I could add a new "summary" field aggregating all that information in the table hidden by default (controlled by visible_fields config option).

Hey, by the way sorry for generating so many tickets/feature requests but I got excited about your plugin... :)

Not sure exactly how you plan it but basically I imagine having only the ID, file name, description and tags on the main list view so users can find the files they need as quickly as possible. Everything else is hidden somewhere (other page, context pop up, ...) so it doesn't clutter the view. I'm thinking of using your plugin as a "file storage" (i.e. demo scenes, test scenes, installers, tutorial videos, ...) rather than an end-user download page, so the number of downloads will quickly grow to 500+ ...

OK, thank you for all of your suggestions. They are certainly good ideas. Currently, I have some more important things to do so I'll realize them when I'll feel to do so. But if you need them ASAP, I can reconsider it when this would be a payed support.

Also note that there is also TracDownloaderPlugin which is in certain aspects more mature than DownloadsPlugin.

No hurry, if there is something vital I'll try to patch it in there myself. I'll try to give it a go as it is now and see how far we get. Didn't know about the other plugin but it doesn't have support for tags yet. Due to the larger number of files, I feel making them accessible by tags is the best way for us to go...

Thanks for the quick feedback
