We have recently released a new Joomla! plugin, the RSFiles! System Plugin, that aRSFiles! - Joomla! file extension

llows you to publish files and folders on a chosen page, whether the page includes text or is a 3rd party page.

It is rather easy to use:

  • in the backend panel, choose the page where you want to publish the content of the file or folder.
  • if you want to publish the entire content of the configured download folder, use the following syntax: {rsfiles }
  • if you want to publish the content of a file, there is an extra thing that you must specify in the brackets - the path where the file is located.
     e.g.  If your file is "ipad.jpg", then you will write {rsfiles  images/ipad.jpg}
  • if you want to publish the content of a specific folder, use the same syntax as you used for files (you must specify the path where the folder is located).
     e.g. If your folder is "images", then you will use {rsfiles  downloads/images/}
