With the Download Center you have a powerful tool for your shop, with which you can offer your customers files from an external source (e.g. FTP) for download. You can also define multiple sources and control access to individual ones.
So you can offer files for download only for certain customers or customer groups.
Install the plugin as usual via the Shopware Plugin-Manager.
Please empty the shop caches after installation and recompile your used themes. You will be prompted to do so after activating the plugin.
Please reload the backend after installation. You will then find the "Download center" module in the "Contents" tab. There you can configure the download center.
Please note that you must edit an album after adding it to store the connection data. To be able to maintain the files, please synchronize the files.
Note: If you are using SFTP (FTP via SSH), problems may occur when downloading larger files. For larger files we recommend the use of an FTP connection. If you would like more external sources for our plugin, please contact us at email@example.com.
If you wish to restrict access to the album to specific users, you can do so using the access conditions. This is done in the format of an SQL where condition. For example, if you only want to allow access to an album by merchants (customer group `H`), you can use the following: user.customergroup = 'H'
You can activate the use of meta files in the plugin settings. This allows you to maintain the title and description of files without backend access. In connection with the cronjob you can synchronize the albums automatically.
The meta files have to be created as .txt-files and have to be named exactly like the original file incl. file extension, at the end the file extension .txt has to follow.
Original file: bbb_sunflower_2160p_60fps_normal.mp4
meta file: bbb_sunflower_2160p_60fps_normal.mp4.txt
The first line of the .txt-Meta file is used as the title for the file, all following lines are used for the description. HTML can also be used for the description.
Example: Content of file bbb_sunflower_2160p_60fps_normal.mp4.txt
Please note that the meta files do not support localization of the texts.
Do you have any questions about installing or using the plug-in or would you like to make a request for the next version? Via firstname.lastname@example.org you can reach the right contact person directly. We are looking forward to your feedback!
