Fantastic products but I’ve spoent some time trying to find a reference to guide me in the forums and FAQs to no avail.
I urgently need to work out how to allow the site admin to view files that registered users have uploaded. Files are being uploaded using Easy Flash Uploader into user specific folders and, unless I’m missing something obvious – always a possibility – I’m using Easy File Listing to view them. The problem is that the parameters can only be set to view the Parent Folder and a single Location within the Parent Folder?
Any help very greatfully received!
@tmdesign. Thanks for posting. I am not 100% sure what you are asking, but the location within the parent folder is not limited to one level. You can list it however deep you desire. The real limitation of Easy Folder Listing module is that the listing must be located in the Joomla root. You can actually create your own folder in the Joomla root, and any amount of subfolders. So, if you created a folder called “their_uploads”, then that custom folder will automatically be displayed in the dropdown list for “Parent Folder”, and if you create subfolders, “top_level” > “level_two” > “deep_down”, you can just put “top_level/level_two/deep_down” in the “Location within the Parent Folder” field.
Let me know if this helps.
Remember that Easy Folder Listing module displays a list of files in a folder. It doesn’t display subfolders in the folder, but you can use any amount of listings for other folders/subfolders.

@michaelgilkes Thanks for the response and so quickly too.
The issue is that I am building a replacement website for an offset printer client and they will have numerous customers sending them artwork via the Easy Flash Uploader. This means that I need a file display that will allow their admin the ability to see and download any and all uploaded files.
Do I understand from your response that the ‘Location within the Parent Folder’ field is limited to one folder? If so then that isn’t going to help.
Thanks for the suggestion about the comparison chart – I’ve looked and of the three it seems that Easy Folder Listing Pro v3.2 is what I should be using. Is that going to do what I need?
@tmdesign. From what you explain, I believe EFLP will provide a the best solution for you. Check out the demos site to see how Easy Folder Listing Pro looks and works. That should give you a fairly good idea of whether Easy Folder Listing Pro will best suit your needs.
