    @ozneilau. Thanks for posting. Let me address the two issues you mentioned:

    1. It seems as though I made a typo while I was building the installation file. So, it still said 3.4, instead of 3.5. I just fixed it. I apologize for that. For some reason, I missed this mistake when I was double checking everything. Now that it is fixed, you should be able to install the update again, and it should get the right version number. If it doesn’t work, let me know.

    2. You are the second person within two weeks to mention an invalid extension update error. I tried to replicate this error on my servers, and I was not able to. The unique thing about your situation is that it updates on one installation and errors on another. Would you be willing to help me figure this out? If you could first provide information about both your servers (PHP version, Joomla version, whether a fresh install or upgrade from previous Joomla version, PHP error logs, etc). You can email me this info.

    @claytonc. Thanks for posting.

    Yes. You can change this default behavior by editing some code. If you feel comfortable changing a line of code then find line 211 in plugins/content/easyfolderlistingspro/easyfolderlistingspro.php:

    and change it to the following:

    I should probably add an option to make this customizable in the next release.

    @marper63. Thanks for posting again.

    This is not a bug, but a feature. “Collapse Subfolders” option is only applicable to Table and List. It does not apply to Paginated table nor Explorer display. This is because Paginated Table View displays each file in a numbered sequence regardless of its location in the file structure. Explorer view does not have a way to collapse or expand a subfolder.

    @marper63. Thanks for continuing the conversation.

    OK, I had a look at your site and compared by test site with yours. Apparently, the css code to style the pagination, which should have been part of bootstrap, is not really there. I might have to add it to a later release to avoid this issue for others. However, to solve your issue, add the following css code to your template css file:

    @marper63. Thanks for posting. Could you provide a link to a listing that shows the vertical page numbering? I just tested it, and I didn’t get didn’t get any issues.

    It is possible that there is a style conflict with your site’s template CSS. Have you checked your browser’s DOM Inspector to see what is affecting the css?

    in reply to: Easy Folder Listing Module parameters #3113

    @sjuro54. Thanks for requesting a feature. However, Easy Folder Listing is a module, not a content plugin. Content plugins work by shortcodes in the article body, where you can specify parameters like you would want. Modules on the other hand were designed to be placed in preset positions on the page. This is why you can have multiple instances of a module in the Module Manager, but only one instance of a plugin in the Plugin Manager.

    Webmasters can sometimes get confused because of the loadmodule/loadposition plugin, which allows administrators to place a module in the body of an article just like a normal content plugin.

    Easy Folder Listing Pro is a component with a plugin and a module that allows the administrator to display the listing, whether in the article or in a page position.

    So, the technical answer is ‘No’. I can’t make a module work like a plugin.

    @sjuro54. OK.

    I had. look at my update server code, and tweaked it a little. Should work now for you, but as you said, you will see the next time there is a release.

    Thanks.

    @sjuro54. Thanks for explaining what you are experiencing.

    OK, I have to say that between 3.3.3 and 3.3.6, there is no change to how links to files are handled, whether for download or preview. I think it has been a while since I made any changes to that. So, whatever you were doing in 3.3.3 should work in 3.3.6. I am surprised you would say that what you were doing does not work any more.

    As for streaming, or playing video and audio files, I could definitely try to add it in future releases. Most of what Easy Folder Listing Pro has become came about as a result of customer requests and suggestions.

    In terms of what you said about changing mp4 and mov to mp3 for playback. Easy Folder Listing Pro does not render any media really. It is your browser that renders it, based on the file type. As I think about it more is that what may be happening with you changing extensions is due to what I have allowed the native previewer to preview. Currently, the native previewer allows previewing (technically, I guess it could be called ‘streaming’ or ‘viewing/playing’) of files with the following extension: pdf,gif,png,jpeg,jpg,bmp,mp3. Basically, the native previewer allows your browser to handle those file extensions.

    If you a familiar with editing code, I could tell you where and what to edit to add mp4 and mov. If you are interested, let me know. If it works out the way you need, I will add it to the next release and maybe try to improve it.

    @sjuro54. Thanks for following up.

    I just testing updating using your order number on my test server, and it updates successfully. I think the order number is case-sensitive. Please re-enter and try again. Thanks.

    @sjuro54. Thanks for posting your question.

    I don’t think I ever tried what you are asking. MP3 files are audio, while MP4 and MOV files are video. I don’t think you can just rename a video file to an audio file, and get it streaming. Or at least, I never thought of trying that.

    Easy Folder Listing module works by providing a directly link to the file’s location, and so when you click on it, it invokes the browser’s default action for that file type. Maybe your browser is steup to play video from a direct link.

    Easy Folder Listing Pro (EFLP) works by you accessing the file through a script, forcing download.

    I didn’t design EFLP to stream video. The preview option has mainly been there to view text-based files (pdf, word file, etc.).

    @sjuro54. Thanks for posting. What version of Easy Folder Listing Pro do you have?

    Updating via the Joomla Update System was added in version 3.3, so if you have a lower version, you will not be able to update that way. You also need a valid order number that is within the 1 year of purchase for you to have an active subscription for updating.

    If you do have a valid order number and version, then you should be able to update via the Joomla update system.

    You may also update by logging into ValorApps.com and downloading the software, and then installing it on your site.

    @gesundheit. 2019? in download table? I don’t understand. Could you clarify what you are referring to? The last thing I would want is for anyone to be confused.

    Free updates of minor/maintenance releases are available for 12 months after your date of purchase. This is outlined in my upgrade policy.

    @gesundheit. As a follow up, I was able to replicate and test your issue from the description you provided.

    I will release a fixed version within the next couple of days. Thanks for reporting.

    @gesundheit. Thanks for posting.

    I have never noticed that. I would like to replicate it. Can you list what the contents of your article looks like, and any particular settings you set. Also, can I see a page where that happens?

    I will try to reproduce it to investigate your findings.

    @peterthebike. Thanks for following up via email.

    Ok. I was able to login and install an altered version of Easy File Uploader with some diagnostic code in it.

    From what I could tell, the issue with your site is the file permissions on the folders in the Joomla root. PHP is unable to read the folders in the Joomla root. I know this because “opendir” PHP function failed when executed. Joomla relies on this function to get the list of folders to supply to my extension when requested.

    Once you fix the folder permissions on your Joomla installation on Windows, the extension should work as expected.

    I sent your an email explaining this. Please let me know how it works out.
