RSFiles! System plugin

The RSFiles! System plugin allows you to publish the content of a folder or file (configured in RSFiles!) within a page of your choice: content (articles) or third party pages.

The plugin is included in the RSFiles package and installs along with the RSFiles! component.

 
Configuration options:
  • Show header Yes / No - Show the header;
  • File versionYes / No - Show the file version;
  • File licenseYes / No - Show the file license;
  • File sizeYes / No - Show the file size;
  • Date addedYes / No - Show the file date added;
  • Ordering - Set the ordering (Name, Date, Hits);
  • Direction - Set the Ordering Direction (Ascending or Descending);
  • Custom Itemid - Set a cusotm Itemid. Leave black for current.

To publish a specific file or folder follow the steps:
  • in the "Article Manager", select the article where you want to add the file/folder
  • in the bottom of the editor, click on the RSFiles! button
  • a new window opens that allows you to select the file/folder; RSFiles! will automatically add the corresponding file/folder placeholder.
 
To publish the whole content of your configured download folder follow the steps:
  • in the "Article Manager", select the article where you want to add the entire download folder
  • in the bottom of the editor, click on the RSFiles! button
  • a new window opens that allows you to select a file/folder; RSFiles! will automatically add its corresponding file/folder placeholder:
  • {rsfiles path="images\flower.jpg"}
  • leave the path blank so RSFiles! lists all files and folders:
  • {rsfiles path=""}
Complete list of plugin tags:

{rsfiles path="/path/folder" version="1" license="1" size="1" date="1" ordering="name|date|hits" order="ASC|DESC" itemid=""}

You can disable certain table columns by setting (e.g.) version="0"
