Upload links should have an option to allow downloads too

Copying this over from the German forum as I still think this is very valid:

Sometimes, I want to work with clients who should not need to worry about Seafile. I give them an upload link to share files and also a corresponding download link so that they can get files I put in that folder. So they can add files, download files but not remove files.

It’s cumbersome, though, and hard to explain why they need two links.

I propose to allow download in the share dialog and add that functionality to the upload links (when download was checked).

This would be a huge usability improvement and maybe a low-hanging fruit to implement.

Another bump. Upload-links are such a great feature. It makes absolutely no sense to force people to use two links if you want them to be able to download, too.

oh yeah. pretty please.

Necro-bumping. How is this not already a feature? This is a complete show-stopper for working with non-tech people.

this is available in the pro version already. still waiting for the release into the CE version too.
