an extension to manage folder content

A few weeks ago I needed a simple file manager for a professional project. The components available for Joomla are extremely powerful, but because of this they were not suitable for my project.

After some research I found the module "Easy Folder Listing" by Michael Gilkes ( The basic idea was fascinating: this module simply displays the contents of a selected folder on the server. Because I needed significant enhancements for my project, I decided to recode Michael Gilkes module completely.

The result is DVFolderContent. It follows the basic principle of "Easy Folder Listing", but was greatly expanded. In particular, a lot of options for controlling the display using access levels have been implemented. The uploading of files controlled by access levels is possible too. The file links are encrypted, so that no association to the physical location of the files on the server are possible.

The package contains a component, a module and german and english language files. Use the extension manager to install the package. This extensions uses the internal updater of Joomla to install new versions.

DVFolderContent is licensed under the GNU/GPL V2.0. You can use it for free. If you like it, I would appreciate a small donation.
