OSDownloads is an extension to help you manage your downloads. It’s simple to use and allows you to easily provide downloads in exchange for emails, which can in turn be automatically imported in MailChimp upon download.

*Price*: This is a bonus extension as part of our online training ( If you purchase any of our subscriptions, you get access to OSDownloads (plus everything else included with the subscription, e.g. Joomla Beginner class, Intermediate class, Template Design class, Security class, etc)

At the time of this writing, it’s the only downloads extension on the JED that allows the administrator to collect emails in exchange for the download (of course it’s optional). This is useful if, for example, you want to collect emails for your newsletter or if you want to collect emails so that the users who download can be notified later via email. This method gets rid of “Registration require to download” if you simply want to collect emails.

At the time of this writing, it’s the only downloads extension on the JED that collects emails and imports them into MailChimp (of course it’s optional).

If there are any bugs, we will do our best to get them fixed in one business day or two at the most.

We are planning on adding a lot of new features if there is interest in the extension. If you have any requests, be sure to let us know. Also, we would love to build a custom solution for your business or your clients if you need it and are willing to sponsor us.
