The 'Attachments' extension for Joomla! allows files to be uploaded and attached to articles and other types of content. URLs can also be attached. 'Attachments' includes the ability to attach files and edit attachments from the front end as well as from the administrative back end. There are options to control who can see the attachments and who can upload them, along with many other options to increase its flexibility and usefulness.

Releases 3.1+ and 2.2+ give you several ways to add, edit, and delete your attachments on the front end, back end, and in article editors on the front and back ends (including during article creation). There are many options to control who can see attachments. When you add or edit attachments, page updates are done quickly without full page reloads.

If you plan to use this extension for sensitive files, use the 'Secure' mode. This provides secure storage of attachment files and prevents access by anyone without logging in.

Attachments 3.2.0 includes many features:
--- Continues to support both Joomla 2.5.7+ and 3.x!
--- Various fixes and improvements (see release notes on github).
--- Tested with Joomla 3.3.6
--- For more details, see:

--- Fixed problem with filenames of the downloaded files

Attachments 3.2.2 and 3.2.3
--- Fixed issues due to Joomla 3.4

Absolutely easy to use by my users/publishers.


I had no problem for years, I had a problem with the last version and the support (Jonathan) was so e kind and careful and I solved.


In the forum there is a lot of information.

Excellent component

Posted on 15 October 2014

I am using this component in several sites. It is very easy to install and configure.

I appreciate the option that downloads are just for registrated users only, if desired.

And the developer is very helpful. I experienced this myself when he solved a problem with documentrights within my site (which was my own fault after all).

Simple and elegant

Nice and simple attachment manager, working with no problems at all.

I Recommend!

Perfect extension to upload attachment with articles, have ACL features, nicely blend with template, control of displaying attributes in frontend and backend logs. It has the features you need and very prompt reply I have got fixing an uninstalling issue.

I've used Attachments for many years on a 1.5 website. We're currently upgrading the website to 3.x and it was a real pleasure (& relief!) to find Attachments works with 3.x. A big THANKS for your extension :)
