This extension gives you the most power undoubtedly for managing documents. There are a few extra steps to installing it, such as installing EXTman and making sure your database is set to mySQLi (at least we had to on our setup for the latest J!3 version). That was pretty much the only bummer, just doing those couple of steps. I did have a couple of other issues, but support was top notch. I tend to radically base my review rating off of support. It has been great so far.

Anyone looking to manage and offer any kind of documents, with complete control, should look at Docman

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

We recently installed DocMAN and have found the product and the support from the team to be excellent. We implemented DocMAN beta 2 initially and have since upgraded to beta 3. Currently we have over 3500 documents running on our site with DocMAN and have found that most of our queries have been successfully addressed during the setup phase. Thank you to everyone at DocMAN. We look forward to the next release.

I've been using DOCMAN for some time to manage my technical library. It's a fantastic component which I cannot recommend highly enough.

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 can attest to the fact that DOCman is a very good and easy to use extension. We have a website with over 10.000 PDF files which are managed by DOCman. You hardly need support but when you need it they really make an effort to help you out. Thank you for this Super extension!

I've been using Docman for years and have always found that it just works. In updating my site from 1.5 to 2.5 I had a problem. I got a solution in no time at all. The only problem was I didn't know who to do want need to be done. I'm a musician not a MySQL expert! Anyway they sorted it all out for me in no time. Can't ask for any more than that. Thank you for a great extension and your kind help.

Just installed last night. Took no time to setup. Very configurable. Had to tweak default CSS to avoid table expanding beyond my Joomla template content area. Added width: 98% to both the dm_cats and dm_docs properties. This was done all in the backend without the need to manually alter files via ftp as other products need. Support was also great in responding to my questions about user permissions. Well worth the $69 subscription.

Thanks DOCman!

Hi, we are using Docman component for some years now, it is a great component, easy to use and trouble free. I'd like to thank the support team especially Johan for solving me a problem which had to do with one of my rest of my components which created me a serious malfunction.

I had to use DOCman 2.00 as 1.6 didn't allow use of Joomla Groups in permissions. The ACL in 2.0 is amazing, so powerful but intuitive and the config is so easy.
I had some issues with my host configs which DOCman support talked me through; the support was simply excellent.
So well done folks!

I have been a long time DocMan user from my first 1.5 site until today. I have used it in a variety of different sites and different needs. It just work! Its easy to modify to fit your needs and the support is out of this world. Faster and more knowledgeable support than some high end technology companies. This is a MUST for anyone needing a top of the line Document Management solution in their Joomla site.

I have been using Docman for a couple of years now and it has always just worked. Easy to instal and easy to use, solves the task I need it to solve.
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.

Thanks for the prompt replies to our questions, I dont normally use commercial extensions but can now understand that without support most of these modules are useless so the few dollars that we paid for this extension and the support that came with it where well worth the spend plus more. All the best with the extension and I highly recommend Joomlatools (Docman) as a trusted module provider.

I'm using docman since 2008, first on a Joomla 1.5 site, now under Joomla 2.5.
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'll keep this short. Our organization has been working to find a good document management and file download system for a long time. We began to use DocMan 1.6 and found that it "almost" had what we wanted, but there were just a few limitations that we could not live with given the size of our implementation. Enter ... 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!

I've been using Docman for some years now and it's the one I'll probably be using for a long time in the future.

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!
