The Download Field adds an additional field type to your SobiPro component.
It allows users to upload files from the front-end (entry form) and download files for an entry or category of the used SobiPro section/directory. Use it to create a download section for your website or to simply let your visitors download a file (e.g. a price list, an inventory list or an e-book a.s.o.).
