You can use it to access and modify the files and directories on your server via FTP or direct file access.
eXtplorer runs natively under Joomla! 1.0 - 3.1 and can also be used as a standalone app.
I was having issues with my css files chmod permissions changing every single time I would edit them from the joomla interface, making them un-writable. Now I just use this component, and have no problems at all. Plus it lets you EASILY re write permissions to files just by r-clicking them and changing permissions.
Great, great component
It's just wonderful! In my opinion it should be included in the Joomla core. As it says on the box, it's a file management system and has all the features you'd expect for viewing, editing, uploading/downloading files. It reduces enormously the time spent on development and changes, for instance when you need to access component/module files.
Well done to developers for working hard to bring this great extension to the Joomla community!
Only issue I ran into was, if I viewed/changed an item, I could not do so again unless I refreshed the page. Then, I can do another view but, I still have to refresh after each view.
Thank you very much for the component. I am looking forward for 2.1.x to have more features.
I would like to recommend a few things to be added on.
1. recursive select and delete capability
2. recursive select and chmod/chown capability
I then got a error saying some files were missing in the folder, administrator/components/com_extplorer/scripts no such folder existed how ever in administrator/components/com_extplorer there is a tar.gz file called 'scripts.tar.gz - you can extract that into that folder and it was all working lovely again :)
Thanks to the developer for this tool
Thankyou - a massive improvement on your previous work, I am very impressed.
