tinyDoc is a document management system for Joomla! 2.5 and newer.
It allows you to upload and manage files on your Joomla! site, organize them by folders and assign icons for distinct file types.
This is the component for the administrator section – the output will be done using the tinyDoc module or by linking to a file using the Joomla! menu manager.
tinyDoc is published under GNU/GPLv3
- Joomla! CMS 2.5
- according to a comment, tinyDoc is incompatible to Joomla! 3.x
