Плагин работает отлично! Сначала я установила демо-версию, но загруженные файлы удалялись через час. Мой заказчик не успевал их скачивать. Купили pro версию, теперь можно выбирать время хранения файлов. Очень удобно, что файлы сами удаляются. Отдельное спасибо разработчику плагина за помощь в решении вопроса со стилями css! The plugin works perfectly! At first I installed the demo version, but the downloaded files were deleted after an hour. My client didn't have time to download them. We bought the pro version, now we can choose the file storage time. It is very convenient that the files themselves are deleted. Special thanks to the plugin developer for their help in solving the issue with css styles! Special thanks to the plugin developer for their help in solving the issue with css styles!
