This plugin enriches your wiki system with a little file sharing functionality. You can view a file list, upload/download files and delete files.

Every function (upload, download, delete) is controlled via configuration on the admin page. In the fileshare config part is to set which function is allowed for user(s) or roles(s), separated by comma ','.

Used only the path set by the fileshare config part.

Bruno Généré 2018-10-24 18:12 I tried to install this plugin through the plug-in manager and get an older version that I was not able to upgrade to the latest release.

On this previous version, I tried to configure the root directory but not sure it was correct because sometimes I get the message that I need to define it (although it was already defined), and sometimes no message. Not sure how we should define users and groups because I was never able to get more than an empty page (no upload feature).

If you could fix the installation issue and enhance the documentation with basic configuration example and at least a screen copy of what is the user interface that's will be nice.

Best regards.
