The CM Downloads plugin makes it easy for you to customize the text labels that appear in the downloads manager!

To control the appearance of the text that appears in the downloads manager, navigate to the Admin Dashboard → CM Downloads Pro → Settings.

Click on Labels tab.


In the General section, the Admin can modify the most common labels used in the CM Download Manager interface, starting from what the downloads manager (is called on your site and how you would like to label the user's dashboard (where users have a list of their own downloads). You can also create customized labels for the search field and the author of downloads.

Under the Following section, the admin can draft their own text labels related to following downloads categories, including the "Follow" and "Unfollow" labels, and the messages that users receive when they follow or unfollow a downloads category.
