Hi, I'm going to upgrade my D7 install to D7 and use another new theme.
As I'm evaluating themes would I be correct in assuming that a D8 only theme _might_ be a better choice than a theme that is compatible with both D7 and D8 as backwards compability often lead to compromises and lesser performance or lesser integrations with the "latest stuff" ?
I'm wondering if it's possible to easily require an email (ideally) or force account creation to get a download.
I know I could use commerce or a cart, but these are free downloads, I just want to capture their email.
Flow could be: Go to page -> click download -> go to page getting email - > download page. This is flexible, the main thing is getting email with minimal friction to the download. It's a not for profit site, but I still want to have a list.
I haven't seen any modules for D8, but I may have missed them.
