Password Protected Directories

Fileman seems like it would be easy for my client's staff to manage files with.

Each directory with files needs to be password protected so that users do not have to login, but do have to enter a password to view/download the files within the password protected directory.

Will this work with Fileman ? Do you know of a way to password protect a directory from within the Joomla admin control panel ?

Hi Mary, I'm afraid that that is not possible at the moment. Password protecting a directory is not something that can be done with Joomla nor with FILEman at the moment. 

The best way to achieve this is by using the Joomla user and permission system. If you don't want to create an account for each user you could create a generic one that multiple users can use.

If you are interested in this feature you could add it as a feature request to our FILEman ideas forum and we are happy to consider it for a next release.
