This is a flexible, simple-to-use extension that is used to list the contents of any folder. This extension comprises of a component, a content plugin and an editor extender plugin. You can easily specify what you need through profiles and/or through shortcode overrides. With the editor extender, placing your shortcode in the article is even easier than ever!
The folder listing can be displayed in four (4) formats now:
2. Unordered List
3. Paginated Table
4. Explorer View
There are many options for sorting the files and folders, and for displaying the file names. This plugin allows for displaying subfolders and viewing the contents of subfolders as well. The user can also click on subfolder name to show or hide its contents. The action to show or hide the contents is animated via either Mootools or jQuery.
Version 3.0 has enhanced security features that obfuscates the links and location of files. You also have the choice of downloading files singly or as a zipped archive.

Contacted Michael twice for support on having the folders/files listed in numerical or natural order. This was NOT a part of his plugin capabilities...but he not only replied in under 3 hours both times, but wrote, tested, and supplied the code to accomplish my task within his plugin!
Amazing support for a $7 plugin!
Thank you for taking the time to post a rated review. However, my plugin does not contain any AJAX code in it. So, I am quite confused in regards to what you are referring to. I would like to invite you to contact me either via the support forum or the Contact form on the website, if you so desire to clarify your opinion on improvements. Kind Regards.
I want to insert the code in different articles to link to different folders. This is where I am stuck. Please how do I proceed?
Also remember that most web designers are not necessarily programmers so the app can be simplified for every body, nerd or designer.
Thanks for taking the time to write your review. I will certainly do my best to improve the current documentation. However, please keep in mind that there is a support site (http://support.michaelgilkes.com) that is available with answers to many questions, including the one you currently pose. Also, there is a "Contact Us" form on the website that you can use to contact me directly. I typically respond to most inquiries the same day (that is, within 24 hours). I am more than happy to assist you in your question.
I had some problems with the WYSIWYG editor who added tags in html code that avoided the plugin to work and some jquery rules in the template that caused the plugin filter and button don't work properly. All these issues solved by the developer who connected to my admin page and find out the causes. Perfect support from him, i really appreciated it.
The most impressive thing is the support. I had a problem that was preventing a interactive PDF from working and the developer was immediately working on fixing it and wasn't giving up until it was fixed.
Highly recommended and perfect for offering files up on your site. Also worth more than the asking price.
And a big thanks to Michael for his fantastic support of the product. I had a configuration issue with another plugin on my site. Michael jumped right on it and was able to help me resolve the issue right away.
Excellent app! Great support! I highly recommend this plugin.
