Best free downloads option?

On my 20.015 forum I run Tiny Portal and also run SMFhacks download mod.

TP includes a downloads capability. I've played with it (on my 2.1 forum) and I might be a bit thick but I find it a bit hard to fathom compared with the SMF hacks version.

I'm wondering which people think is the 'best' (and easiest for users to understand')? And why.

I reject your reality, and substitute my own.


Oooh, I don't know. I have used both over the years and really by now don't find either hard. Personally I would like to stay with TP as it has a few things all in one that are nice to have. Downloads, articles and a portal. If I used the downloads mod than I would have to find all the other stuff with other mods. Which as far as I am concerned less is more.


Not really - can use TP for all the other functions (as I do) and SMF Downloads for just that facility.

I haven't used TP lately but some time ago SMF Downloads had more features and I liked that one better. This isn't to say TP is bad. I just like SMF downloads better. But it is a matter of personal taste.


The downloads sys in TP is pretty powerful, it's also had a fair bit of work done to it over the last few versions. 

That said, yes it could do with being a bit more user friendly. But give it a good go, and you'll soon get used to it.  ;)
