You can easily assign documents to a single group or to a Joomla user making him the only one who can see/download it. Any user will see only public documents or files addressed to him.
Simple File Manager can automatically generate email reports in order to alert your users when a new document becomes avaible to download. You can label new and featured documents or store them in different categories.
Every file is stored in a random-generated path to increase the storage security. In addition you can protect your download path enabling the provided .htaccess file.
You can also customize documents' icons.

Other features:
✔ Italian, Spanish and German translations provided
✔ Special label for "featured" documents
✔ Download statistics
✔ 3 different frontend views (table,list,grid)
✔ Bootstrap 2.3.2 support
✔ Responsive layout

Simple file manager ti permette di creare aree download personalizzate in Joomla! 3. E' l'unico componente gratuito che offre anche la possibilità di riservare file a singoli utenti o a gruppi, rendendoli inaccessibili agli utenti non autorizzati. L'intuitiva interfaccia integrata ne fa un componente di facile utilizzo anche per scopi professionali. Simple File Manager è un'estensione 100% italiana che supporta il sistema multilingua di Joomla!. Viene rilasciata già tradotta in italiano, inglese spagnolo e tedesco. L'interfaccia utente responsive riprende a pieno il look & feel del CMS Joomla! rendendo ancora più agevole l'uso del componente. Altre caratteristiche, come: ✔ La possibilità di riservare file protetti da lettura (ricevute, diagnosi, documenti privati, ecc...); ✔ Il sistema di notifiche via email; ✔ Le icone personalizzabili; ✔ L'introduzione delle etichette; rendono Simple File Manager un'estensione unica nel suo genere.

Very nice and clean component. It would be nice if we can allow user to upload files thru the front end.

This is a good extension but even after paying the suggested donation there seems to be no response from the developer to provide backlink free version as p-romised, even after direct contact by me via email.


Owner's reply: Hi samot, thank you for your reveiew but please the next time use the contact form instead of posting unreal problems here. Every substainer gets a version without backlink. Please look in your spam folder or check if tour PayPal transaction was completed successfully.

All ok, but there are some bad things.

1. Files are uploaded in randowm folders, we don't have posibbility to define folders where they are stored.

2. Searching a site by filename or it's description (using search modules) doesn't show a files.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your feedback oeriel!
Random folders are unavoidable for security reasons: keeping files position secret increases download centers security also in case of wrong file permissions.
I fixed the filename filter, now it works properly :)

Really excellent layout, easy to use and smart. If you need something light to manage downloads with a pretty site interface, this is the solution.

Take care: if you select a user in the document settings, only this one will be able to see and download the file!

Finally, a new extension, with a concept completely easy file management. What you wanted finally came true!!

easy and nice

Very good extension, easy to use and powerful.

Works perfectly on J3, and the support is fantastic.

Component simple and very useful for private or public downloads.

You can still improve, but worth a try.

Owner's reply: Hi gnumax! Thank you very much for your review. I admit that the old version wasn't so exciting to use but currently i completely rewrote extension code to allow it to run on Joomla! 3. It's really user-friendly. I hope you'll try it so you can also give me suggestions about how to improve it.

JTracking is a component for joomla 2.5 that allows you to monitor - via the joomla frontend - the status of any kind of operation: moving, shipping, repairs, etc. all through an identification code. You can for example check the repair status of a mobile phone using its serial number (or a ticket-code, etc.), or track the status of a shipment and follow all its movements. JTracking is a completely free component and can be improved and redistributed at no cost (just i pray you to observe and indicate always the authorship of the work). Main features: The component will publish in a page a search form where you can insert the code to check. After clicking on the button, the component prints all search results in the order they were entered in the database with the date and the status of the object. Through the interface of the admin panel, you can update the status associated to each code creating, editing or deleting its states. Special thanks are due to mau_develop and jonxduo, whose contribution was essential to the success of the project.
