Docman Files


I have a Joomla website where I am using Docman. Works great! I have my documents divided into folders and users permissions to upload documents have been set.

I need to allow users to upload files via emails. I will create a php script that will allow users to email to a designated address, then check for attachment and upload the file into the assigned docman folder.

My problem is that when I upload a file directly to /joomlatools-files/docman-files/folderA the document stays under file it is in the server, but never gets published as a document under the Hierarchical Gallery. Is there a way to syncronize this? if there are documents under file to automatically add them to "documents" so they show in the gallery?

Hi Stephany, great to hear DOCman is working great for you. About your question, uploading the file into the folder is not enough, the next step is to create a document for the file using the DOCman PHP API.
