    Is it possible to run multiple instances of Easy Listing Pro in different sections of a site?

    For example, I need to have some folders visible in a section of the site but not in another?

    {easyfolderlistingpro parameter1=images/news} for example shows all folders and sub folder in a section called ‘news’

    and then in another section of the web site {easyfolderlistingpro parameter1=images/pressreleases} which shows press releases?

    I’m sure my syntax here is totally wrong, but hopefully you get the idea?

    Thanks in advance.

    @decay. the short answer to your question is YES! You can use it anywhere on the site. It’s a plugin. That’s how they were designed.

    As for the syntax, you have it right except for the parameter name and the lack of single quotes. Please look at the paramater list on my website. But, basically, you would have something like:

    {easyfolderlistingpro folder=’images/pressreleases’}

    and on another page (or even the same page) have:

    {easyfolderlistingpro folder=’images/news’}


    THank you for the quick response! i’ll give it a go! 😉



    I’ve tried setting up multiple folder listing on two different pages. I set my parent folder to ‘docs’ with two different subfolders labeled ‘publicdocs’ and ‘privatedocs’ I created two different articles using the following syntax

    {easyfolderlistingpro folder=’docs/publicdocs’} on one page and I get the following error

    on the display page:

    JFolder: :folder: Path is not a folder. Path: docs/publicdocs

    JFolder: :files: Path is not a folder. Path: docs/publicdocs

    In the plugin module control panel I have the location of the listing folder as docs.

    Any guidance you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

    @hummina. Thanks for posting.

    From the error message that Joomla lists, it seems that the path ‘docs/publicdocs’ does not exist. One thing to keep in mind is that web servers are typically case-sensitive. So, for example, if the folders are actually named “Doc” and “PublicDocs”, then specifying “doc/publicdocs” will not work. You will have to specify “Doc/PublicDocs”. This actually happened to another user of the plugin.

    Now, make sure that your docs folder is in the root of the Joomla installation. If you are still having trouble, please post a link to the webpage.



    here is a link to a picture showing the syntax…I hope this helps

    @hummina. Thanks for posting. It seems as though you adjusted the text to suit the case of the folders’ names. You have changed it from:

    {easyfolderlistingpro folder=’docs/publicdocs’}


    {easyfolderlistingpro folder=’docs/PublicDocs’}

    It should work now. Let me know. If it doesn’t work, send me an email with a link to the page, and create a temporary admin account for me to access it in the backend. If you are not comfortable with that, I will try to work with you via email, but this is the quickest way.

    @hummina. Thanks for contacting me via email. i checked out your site, and identified the problem as the WYSIWYG editor adding extra tags to your text in the article. See the following screenshots. One is the one you sent, and the other is the same screenshot but I clicked on “Toggle Editor”:


    Toggle Editor Clicked:



    Having had the very same problem and looking at your png of the toggled code I can tell you that hummina did exactly the same thing I did. He copied and pasted your example from your doc into his code to get all that formatting.

    Given this seems to happen more than it should, I would suggest a warning in your doc about pasting special text only or some such thing or you will be answering this one forever.

    @homedav. Thanks for your suggestion. Actually, my FAQ already deals with this. Here’s the link: I copied and pasted some plug-in text into my article and I get an error. What’s wrong?

    Maybe I need to phrase the question in a better way, or ask a different question. Let me know what you think. Maybe you have a suggestion on how to rephrase the question.
