EasyDownload Menu Module is a simple Joomla Module that displays a list of available downloads in a standard HTML form menu.

Simply click on the desired file in the menu to start the download.

Version 1.1.1 is functionally identical to 1.1.0 but due to JED Naming requirements a few strings have changed relating to the modules name.

Version 1.1 brings a change to the download mechanism so that the original files location can't be determined from the HTML. This is acheived via a helper file that uses a secret key you setup to authenticate that the requested file is allowed to be downloaded.
