FILEman already brings multiple and remote file uploads, automatic thumbnail generation, easy file linking to Joomla. We have been working hard to make FILEman even better and easier to use.
Today, we are happy to announce that FILEman 2.1 is ready.
In this feature release, we made files even easier to manage. We also greatly improved the frontend image gallery layout to give your visitors a better experience on mobile devices.
Let us summarize some of the important new features in this release.
Individual private files area
Creating a private file area for your users is now possible with the new ‘User Table’ menu type. It gives each user on your website their own folder to upload and download files from . They will not see any files uploaded by other users.
You can now very easily setup a private files area and allow your site administrators to send files to your clients or customers, or securely accept files from them.
Responsive, mobile-ready gallery layout
Mobile-friendly, responsive websites are more important than ever now that Google has started rewarding mobile-friendly. This makes it essential for Joomla extensions to be mobile ready.
To that end, we have improved the FILEman image gallery with a better mobile optimised layout.
It now responds to common touchscreen gestures like swiping or pinch-to-zoom, gives a better slideshow experience, loads faster and is SEO optimised.
Unlimited size file uploads
Server limits on shared hosts have always been a problem when uploading big files. Not any longer. With FILEman 2.1 you can upload files of unlimited size (1 GB+) regardless of your server settings.
Easier file management
The administrator file manager has been improved. You can now filter, sort and search through files in a folder as well as move or copy them to different folders.
And many more
