    Nice File Uploader

    http://extensions.joomla.org/extensi...anagement/8570

    Someone has basically modified Extplorer plugin to work from the front end as a simple and easy to use file uploader

    This makes is easy for teachers to upload video's and mp3s for insertion into articles (I'm currently using AllVideos plugin to show these)

    Its a bit strange to set up as you install it as normal and then basically create an article with this in it

    Code:
    {jsmallfib}
    I've set this up as an article called File Uploader and made it restricted and stuck it in my Staff Room category and then just linked to it from my User editing menu

    regards

    I imagine so, it's a different plugin to the one I downloaded. Just doing it now.

    Sparkeh, install it and let me know if you get a PHP error at the bottom of the page.

    I'm wondering, how do I get it to start at /site as I already have media uploaded so I'd like to be able to navigate from the top through the files.

    According to the URL I see when I hover over 'top level' it's already looking at the right location /httpdocs/site but there's no files displayed.

    Do I have to create a seperate folder just for this tool and all media will go in to there?

    Theres also JFU

    JFU advantages
    Multiple file upload so great for picture gallerys

    Disadvantages
    3MB files limit so no good for vids/podcasts (unless you pay for it )

    Non-standard interface - certainly throws me each time I use it.

    When I update my older websites I add in JFU but now I'm going to add in both and going to demo both and provide documentation to the teachers and let them choose which they'd like to use.

    regards

    Simon

    PS I also install joomlafck as my editor of choice for teachers as its like an IPhone - does what it says it does and actually works

    I use JCE for admin editor as its sometimes useful for its extra features but I find it very flaky and designed for a 2048x1700 multiple monitor dispay

    I've just set the default to stories/images as I've already got a class folder structure set up there and didn't want to replicate/manage and confuse the teachers with 2 folder tree structures.
    [edit] no leading / in path name [/edit]

    Just set this up on another of my sites
    installed plugin
    enabled it
    went into plugin settings and changed 1st parameter to images/stories (NOT /images/stories as prev said ops: )

    created dummy article with just {jsmallfib} in it and saved it to staff room section/category and made it restricted access.

    Added link to article from my edit menu. (make it a new window with browser nav BTW)

    (Just tested that it actually uploads and it does )

    My sites are 1.5.x but operate in legacy mode in case that makes any diff.

    Got it now!

    Pretty funky, thanks.

    Can grant access to only specific folders too which will make things easier.
