Files and folders cannot be sorted manually!!!
I think a commercial extension should be capable of such an essential function. So I installed JDownloads instead which is donation ware and works perfect even when you have to sort the files manually....
Seems a little inflexible – the categories are managed as folders, there are no download links in the category list which means extra clicks for you customers. The styling isn’t great and you WILL need to template override the output to get something useable.
I found EDocman to be a much better component.
Other than that, is is not a bad effort.
There are free extensions out there that do similar, but none as complete and well polished.
Yes it is commercial, and the only downside I see is that it is a yearly subscription for the support and free updates. But for the hassle free useage, it is a small price to pay. Well done guys you rock!
The product is excellent and provides us with a secure solution to controlling files for download/upload with our membership. Setting up groups and corresponding folders and files that groups have access to is quick and secure.
This is the third product I have bought for RSJoomla and all of them perform as expected.
Like the way it uses real directories and files, so you can manage those easily via filezilla et al
Support has been very helpful, prompt and useful. Could not ask for more, thanks guys!
Wish List to ease bulk file naming work:
1. File thumbnail defaults to last used thumbnail
2. File title (name) and description defaults to last saved text
3. Facility to export filenames to csv or similar, add names, descriptions & thumbnail paths in excel, and import list. This would save heaps of time!
RS Joomla is a company that I trust and I've purchased a couple of other products. However this particular component is far too basic and inflexible to have been worth my purchase.
