It is rare that something performs as advertised but Docman has.

Ease of use

While i think there is still some things to shake out and streamline with the newest version it is and never has been complicated to use.

Doc Man


Posted on 31 October 2014

I have been using Doc Man for over 5 years. First the free and was so impressed with the ease of product I went with the PAID version for the last two years. My websites are public education portals. The information that needs to be available to many entities is enormous! Doc Man has made that task easy.

Snap! Crackle! Pop! Done.

I highly recommend. Support is awesome as well!


I've been a user of Docman on many websites over the last 5-6 years and I have never replaced it with another similar extension because it's so good. The support is also very good. The only thing is that progress has been slow between updates, however the version of Docman that now exists is so good and definitely worth your while. And the support you get from the team is excellent. You feel like you matter! Download it now :)

Owner's reply: Thanks for the wonderful review and for being a long standing DOCman user and customer!

All our customers matter a lot. At Joomlatools we try to build extensions the 'Joomla' way, by working together with our customers.
This process takes a bit more time, but results in more simple to use extensions that really match the needs of our customers.

I have tried different document components for Joomla, but have always come back to DOCman. I used it under 1.5 and 2.5 sites, and I continue to be satisfied with it under 3.x. Support on their site, as others have mentioned, has been very good.



I think this version is still a bit of a work in progress, and some things that were under 1.5 will hopefully still be included, but otherwise this continues to be a great product. It is one of the few extensions I have paid for, but it is worth it.


Great support

Bought this component - had a couple of issues (some of my own making, some bugs) but had nothing but stellar support from the DOCMan team. Would recommend!
