@wiser3. Thanks for your questions. Here are my responses:
1. The example shown is a Paginated table. The paginated tables do not have subfolders like in Easy Folder Listing Pro. However, you can also show the same listing as an Unordered List and Table. In those two modes it looks almost identical to Easy Folder Listing Pro. So, it is available, but I did not display it on the demo site.
2. Yes, you are right about the sync feature. It is a manual sync. The reason for this is that because the focus of Advanced Folder Listing is to allow the admin to add any type of meta data to the listing. Adding the meta data is a manual process, so the sync must be manual too. To accomplish what you want to do, it is best to use Easy Folder Listing or Easy Folder Listing Pro with Easy File Uploader to make the listing update when viewed after new files are uploaded.
3. I honestly don’t have any immediate plans to update it with that functionality. I do plan to update it shortly with a french translation, and a couple of tweaks. However, you can easily modify the code yourself to add that feature if you have some PHP experience.
I hope I have answered your questions adequately, Tim. I think that Easy Folder Listing Pro may be more suited to your needs, unless you are looking for the meta data feature. Let me know what you are thinking, and how I can help you further.
