Showcase your publications. Simply beautiful, beautifully simple.

CW-files is a Joomla® module to Provide downloads. It's specialty are PDF documents, but it works perfectly for all kinds of downloads.

Core features:

  • Auto generate PDF preview of the title page (PHP ImageMagick required!)
  • Download links hidden, suitable for paid downloads
  • Optional view or download buttons for PDFs
  • Easy to use
  • Beautiful design
  • Languages: English and German
  • Joomla 4 ready

CW-files has been kept deliberately simple. However it has many powerful potentials:

E.g. You can setup a subscription system with any of the subscription extensions available for Joomla and restrict access to the download module(s) to users with a valid subscription. To avoid users sharing the download link for free to others, all download links in CW-files are hidden behind it's smart download mechanism. You can even store the files outside the server path. 

CW-files doesn't provide its own upload mechanism, just use the Joomla media manager or any other means to get the files on the server. Simply tell CW-files the path where the files are stored and then conveniently select them from a dropdown list in the files manager.

Since it is a module and not a component, it is easy to use in several different scenarios all over your website. A public download area in one place, a restricted one in another, a beautiful media library with PDF previews or just a simple download list for zip files.

Check out the demo to get an impression how simple it actually is.
