This is truly a "Can't Live Without" extension. I've been using it for a little over two years and it it a default extension for all of my sites and all of my client's sites. the first thing I do after I install Joomla is install extplorer. this is a must have tool.

Thank you for this amazing extension.

My site is on a share host and I do not have access to the server directly with ssh. I was having difficulties extracting my extensions that refused to install. After using this extension to extract the files to the temp directory, I was able to install my packages from there.

Deleting the folder afterwards was also very easy.

Extplorer allows me do quick directory and file management, without loading other software. When I need to delete full directories, it works as fast as cPanel, and of course faster than FTP. I also use it to upload and organize media. A great tool for ease of use access.

Nice and useful tool, especially when we do not have access to Cpanel or Filezilla (when we are travelling and have to use friend's computers). A must have tool for your Joomla website!

I have used this tool on every single site I have that uses Joomla. Hands down perfect for doing quick updates, changes and more. Also keeps me from logging into my cpanel to give ftp access for a dev.

Don't let the occasional bad reviews fool you! My guess is the fault lies with them as I have used this component on a wide array of servers including dedicated servers, shared hosting, clouds etc. and never encountered a single problem!

Only thing I would improve is supporting hotkeys (CTRL+S to save etc)
Otherwise excellent in every way!

eXtplorer is an excellent file manager and it is one of the few extensions that I install on every website I build and/or look after.

I only ever had an issue once and the developer worked hard to come up with a solution which only took a few days.

Thanks for continuing to make this available for free.

I hate it to run a ftp client and upload, delete move or rename while i do a parallel work in the admin of Joomla. I don't know why but it is like this. Therefore extplorer is my salvation. It is a genius AJAX- eye candy - file admin client. Keep on the very good work.

This made my life so much easier. I'm not the main admin and I'm often working on PCs which don't have a FTP software installed, so this is just god sent allowing me to get stuff done in the browser, like changing a CSS style in the matter of seconds!

I needed an FTP client that would run in Joomla allowing me to work with files that I was unable to work with directly due to Apache permissions. This extension installed easily and allowed me to immediately work with those files that had previously been unaccessible to me via a separate FTP client.
Easy to use with no learning curve required!

I was struggling with uploading images in the image folders. I struggled for hours to upload the images, the default bulk uploader in Joomla (3.0) was not working (Chrome, Flash issues). Installed this component and was bowled over by the simplicity, user interface and ease of operations. Please use this, a must have.

Thank you, thank you, thank you

This component makes life easier for administrators. But with all those benefits, comes the risk of opening backdoors. It's a dangerous task to open direct access to your sites files from the backend, you need to be absolutely sure on the security, but with carefull protection, it's a plus.

This is absolutely the best file management software you can find for the Joomla! backend. Not only is it simple to navigate through but the GUI (graphical user interface) is straightforward. Plus you can edit, rename, upload, and a lot more within the backend of your Joomla! installation. And it is free!
