Depending on access levels, users can read or upload files, create folders and more. The main repository can be set either within the Joomla! directory, or, for greater security, outside the web root.
This plugin is ideal if you require simple out-of-the-box file browsing/uploading/downloading functionality (to store and share documentation, for example, or to manage all your web files from the frontend), all within a normal article.
Actions such as file uploads/downloads, and file/folder renaming, removing can optionally be logged. Permissions for accessing files and folders are set with the 'command' within a normal article text.
It is possible to set different access levels for unregistered visitors or specific registered user groups, but also for specific registered users individually.
All this is done with the command in the article text. The same article can be made to generate different repositories depending on users or groups. Supports file archiving.
JSmallfib ships with Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish translations.
Its an extension with the potential to grow. Its basically an extension which fullfill the need to share extensive files. You do not need to define each files in the backend. Drop the files and folder in to the specific directory and it will appear in the front end. Most important is that it allow you to control who can see and who can download. I have requested the developers to add an additional option such that those who are allow to browse only should not be allowed to downloads.
I am waiting to see more of the updates and enhancement from this extension.
Thumbs up for all the updates.
Without doubt THE simplest to implement and no css hacking required whatsoever, it looks the part straight out of the box.
If you're looking for front-end file management for publishers, with 1 minute setup and implementation, then this is perfect for you.
Good job fella!
Wish I could give it more stars.
Users should keep in mind that the uploaded files can be accessed if you know (or guess) the path and filename, so I suggest to use htaccess protection.
An excellent and straightforward plugin that is simple to use and configure.
