DocMan Overview

About DOCMan for Joomla

DOCMan is one of the best document management solutions available for Joomla. It allows controlled downloading and uploading of documents into Joomla.

Unlike the regular media and file manager in Joomla, DOCMan allows for permission control and restricted access, front end file submissions, and meta information about the documents all of which can be controlled from an admin interface.

Administrators can organise documents within DOCMan in to nested categories as well and control various levels of security including anti leech systems.

There are several steps that you must take in order to upload and manage content on the website.

  1. Create categories for documents to exist in
  2. Upload the corresponding file
  3. Create a virtual document of the file
