DOCman Secrets: Standard Buttons

We are back once again with yet another post in the DOCman Secrets collection which already includes some really great posts such as: Brief Permissions a quick look into the inner wranglings of the DOCman ACL, Email notifications a breakdown of the Notify plugin, Generating Thumbnails a breakdown of the Autothumb plugin and last but by no means least Batch importing a detailed look at Populate.

In this edition I want to show you one of the most simple functions DOCman offers, the ability to turn specific buttons off in the frontend. Great if you ever felt the need to rid yourself of additional options or you just don’t have the real estate on your pages to offer as many options as DOCman puts out by default.
DOCman 1.5 Standard Buttons
So how difficult is this to do? Very simple, each button has its own on/off switch located in the Plugin called ‘Standard Buttons’ which can be found in the Joomla Plugins Manager via the Joomla administrator.

Currently you can turn the following options on or off:

  • DownloadView
  • Details
  • Edit
  • Move
  • Delete
  • Update
  • Reset
  • Checkin/Checkout
  • Approve
  • Publish/Unpublish

That’s all for this edition of the DOCman Secrets, remember you can always get the support you need from the Joomlatools support portal or community forums!
