Even though this is a recent extension, it is the best I have found for file management. It's capability as a front end file manager for galleries is unmatched.

I had a jQuery issue after installation and the support was superb, and identified it was another extension causing the problem.

Maybe my rating should be between great and excellent, but with the excellent support I've got from Johan, I just don't have a choice.

I checked lost of extensions for Joomla, but none met my requirements: I wanted to allow registered users to have a folder with personalized PDF-document. The content of these documents is private and therefore should not be visible by others. Out-of-the-box Joomla allows protecting data, but not to protect PDF-documents which can be viewed when the URL is known. By using .htaccess in combination with Fileman my problem was solved in a very nice and user friendly way.

Fileman indeed is easy to install. Johan explained the procedure in a five step email and I was ready to use the extension within 5 minutes.

Fileman in a release candidate and I missed one thing: when selecting a file, I want it to be opened in a new window (target=new); that's not available yet, but when reported to Johan, he immediately responded with a confirmation: it will be in the next release candidate which will be available in a couple of weeks.

Johan: excellent service, great support and very very fast response.

Very much recommended !!!

I had a need on a intranet style site for a file repository that was simple and quick for a secretary to use, tidy in appearance and cheap. As a subscriber to Docman the answer was there all the time. FILEman is a time saver. Just drag the files from your C drive into the folder. How simple can it get. It even lets you know when someone has uploaded.
There is also the traditional upload method for the purists. Plans for the next release will take it from good to perfect and a "Must Have" for any site where file sharing or intranet capabilities are required. Highly recommended
