File Selector

A component to select a file to download using up to 4 selection criteria, in 4 selection drop down menus. I created this in 2008.

I use it in my school website to make the all the final grades available. For example, the user would choose the year, the level and the class he is in, and would download the required pdf file with the class grades. Furthermore, it has a full functional back office to create different document types, that will show in different web pages, and to upload several files at once. When creating the link, you will be able to choose the document type, the page title and if you want to show the downloads count for that document type. Since version 1.0.3 there’s also the option to show the selection menus vertically.

The files download count are also marked, but I don’t show them in the site front end, only in the administrator view. It requires PHP5.

As of version 2.0.0, its designed for Joomla! 1.6.x .

NOTE: I used PHP short tags, so if you have some problems with the component, try following this instructions:
If you still have problems, feel free to contact me and I’ll try to help you out. I will solve that issue whenever I make a new version for this.

You can see it working here, and you can get it here.
