Important: OSDownloads Will Have New URLs

OSDownloads Upcoming Release

Over the last couple of months we've been working really hard on improvements to OSDownloads.

OSDownloads is the easiest way to add downloads to Joomla, and it makes it simple to collect an email address in exchange for downloads.

What are the new features in OSDownloads?

We've added email notifications for downloads, and custom fields for download files. In the next few days, we'll also add custom fields for user submissions, so you can collect more information from visitors who download files.

We've also been working on the URL structure for OSDownloads which was old and causing problems for some users.

In this blog post, you'll learn about upcoming URL changes in OSDownloads. If you use OSDownloads and have publicly available URLs, please read on.

What Extensions Should OSMap Support?

osmap google joomla

OSMap is the most popular sitemap extension for Joomla.

Currently, OSMap supports 7 extensions, using plugins from Joomlashack. These are Content, Weblinks, K2, Kunena, Mosets Tree, SobiPro, and Virtuemart.

Over 40 more extensions are supported, thanks to other developers.

We'd like to add official OSMap support for more extensions. Do you have any suggestions for extensions that are not yet covered, or that Joomlashack should support?

Ideally we're looking for extensions that meet these criteria:

  • Are used on a large number of Joomla sites
  • Contain a lot of valuable content
