The new 2.0 version of the extension is very very cool and makes easy my life as an administrator for a school with tons of study material uploaded and downloaded every day
The support is super fast and they are ready to help me in any issue also creating fixes as soon as i report a bug
I'll keep using this forever!
Recently I ported my site to Joomla 2.5 and had issues integrating DOCMAN since I had a legacy, non-standard file structure. The developer went overboard in helping me by uploading a new database, advising me on issues, etc. I couldn't have asked for better help. Even though I offered to pay him for his time he declined, saying that it was just part of the support they give to DOCMAN users.
Get this component. You won't be disappointed with either it or the support.
I had some issues with my host configs which DOCman support talked me through; the support was simply excellent.
So well done folks!
When I upgraded to Joomla 2.5 I ran into some errors, headed over to the support forum and got answer within the day that they would look at my files and the day after I had a solution. Good support and a good app.
This component does all a file managment has to do - and it does it sure, safe and comfortably.
In all those years I had only one single problem - and the support was great and quickly.
Now I'm awating DocMan 2.0.
I installed DocMan 2.0 and was immediately relieved to see multiple folders/subfolders for files and images. Drag & Drop, SEF urls to documents and a simplified interface.
There's not a lot of documentation available as it is still in Beta, so i've had to ask support for some help. You've probably read about it before, but DocMan support is phenomenal. I had answers to three questions in less time with the DocMan team than I've had with a single question anywhere else.
DocMan 2.0 will only get better. I'm so impressed with it so far that I'm considering moving to it in our production environment even though it is in Beta. I know installing beta software for use in a production environments is a no-no, but in our case, we have no other viable options that work like DocMan 2.0 does, so we're taking the plunge. We'll keep you posted.
Great job JoomlaTools on both the product and support!
When I had problems after a complicated migration of a large site with thousands of files, the support was there to help me get out of trouble.
I'm eagerly waiting for the 2.0 version. Go, guys, go!
It is easy to use from both the front end of the site and the backend too.
I had an issue recently which I asked the developers about and they were very quick to help out and resolve the issue (which was actually a problem with the joomla folders and not the extension)
