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.

1. Table
2. Unordered List
3. Paginated Table

This extension is awesome. It saves you so much time in listing files from several directories. It also makes it very easy for clients to just uploads the files they want to list! Thanks so much for your hard work!! :-)

For my situation, we have folders of documents which get updated regularly. This fantastic plugin allows users to view folders, and subfolders and links are automatically generated to allow users to view / download files.

There were some slight problems at first (down to me using Windows hosting rather than Linux) but Michael offered a fantastic level of support, both on his blog and through email. For 4 dollars (£2.50) this saves so much time. Cannot recommend enough!!

I was looking for a long time for such module /or plugin to ease the publication of file folders. I found it here and I appreciate the very quick support for the author (Michael). Easy to configure - ok ok I know it's in the name :-) - but still quite flexible in the parameters to adapt it to your needs.
Fair price (very reasonable) for what it brings to me ! Thx Michael !

In my quest to find a proper addon in Joomla to share my files located in a folder within Joomla I found Easy Folder Listing Pro.
First I tried the free version, which was working flawless and I decided to buy the pro-version because of the extra configuration possibilities.

Never shared my files this quick, just brilliant!
An extra pro: Questions left on the blog are answered on a very short notice.

What can I say....great plugin, thanks Michael!
