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.
Two things, which would make it even more perfect:
1.) possibility to skip displaying the file extension
2.) possibility to change the navigation items.
Thanks to the author
Mike - You are right. There's been a serious problem over the Summer with files being corrupted on Smallerik's website. Please do accept my apologies.
I have now made all files (guides and plugins) available for download from a new 'All downloads' link on the main menu of the site.
It was very easy to install and use.
You can set it up to allow users to browse a directory and its subdirectories, upload and download files, rename files and archive versions instead of overwriting them.
Everything from permissions to colors to can be configured, and defaults can be overridden for repositories in different articles. An article can even show each user their own directory (have not tested).
To top it off, there is detailed documentation!
It's perfect for a simple document repository (and can also handle images, though I haven't tried that yet).
Thanks so much!
