DOCman Category Module

I have set up DOCman - Category modules on a Joomla! 2.5.20 web site (DOCman 1.6.7). The modules display a list of documents from within the category; however, when I click on a document in the module, it takes me to the category within DOCman instead of downloading the document whose name I clicked on.

Is this the normal behavior for DOCman - Category modules? Is there a way to download the documents directly from the category module, or will clicking on the links in the module always take you to the DOCman category?

Sorry about that Laura, been a while since we had questions about 1.6. So if you are using the category module this will not work indeed. However, the DOCman Lister module can do this, I suggest you switch to using that. There is a setting to define the behavior of the links in the module set it to 'direct download'.

Does that help ?
