You can assign a document to a single group or to an unique Joomla user making him the only one who can see/download it.

Easy ACL system

You can decide who can see any file in the secure download area and the actions can be made on it. Simple File Manager takes advantage of the Joomla! ACL system so that you don't have to learn using nothing but joomla.

Easy to configure

Simple File Manager follows the standard Joomla look-and-feel. It's intuitive and well designed so that it's very easy to use and to configure.

Automatic notification system

Simple File Manager can generate automatic email reports in order to alert users when a new document becomes avaible to download.

Security first

In Simple File Manager every file is protected by external access via an .htaccess file and is stored in a random-generated path in order to increase storage security.

Localized

This component supports multilanguage websites and comes already traslated in English and Italian, but you can get other translations via the localized Joomla! communities.

Simple file manager ti permette di creare aree download personalizzate in Joomla! 3. E' l'unico componente gratuito che offre anche la possibilità di creare **aree download private** e 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 e spagnolo. Puoi scaricare altre lingue tramite le comunità Joomla! localizzate. L'interfaccia utente responsive riprende a pieno il look & feel del CMS Joomla! rendendo ancora più agevole l'uso del componente. Altre caratteristiche: ✔ Possibilità di riservare file protetti da lettura (ricevute, diagnosi, documenti privati, ecc...); ✔ Sistema di notifiche via email; ✔ Icone personalizzabili; ✔ Etichette;

Functionality

- After posting new description the file is deleted from the server or the link isn't updated
- Description doesn't appear in some categoies

Ease of use

... if no such bugs.
Feature request:
- Allow to hide "new file" button per category
- Allow external links as file source (eg. FTP links)


Functionality

Why not allows to upload archive file(rar)?I have a few files and they are either large/multiple to combine the archive and wanted to share

Ease of use

And as you can specify to display the icon of the file, because as pointed out but it is not.

Owner's reply: Hi "a b",
who told you that rar archives aren't allowed? Simple File Manager accepts any kind of file provided that its extension isn't in the forbidden extensions list.
I invite you to deal about any kind of issue you're encountering via the support link and not in the reviewing space of the Joomla Extension Directory. I'll be glad to help you solving your problems.

Regards,
G.M.

I love the "download free but pay to scrub backlink" model. I can stress test and then pay!!!

I used this to: I am using this for two sites coming to production. Both for files reserved for registered users that I don't want the general public to see. Works great on my mysql install; I still need to tweak for postgre.

Functionality

Yes it is

Documentation

It's so simple that you don't need any documentation

I used this to: Sharing files to my users. Each user sees his own files.

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