How to checkin a checked out document ?

I have a document that is reporting  [ Checked out ] in the back end of Joomla/DOCman. I see a checkin button in the front end, but trying to checkin the document gives the error "(documentname) currently being edited by another administrator". How can I clear this status?

Thanks

Hi Lisa, this status can be cleared in two ways :

  1. The user who checked the document out needs to check it back in to make it available again.
  2. If you are a super administrator you can use Joomla's Global Checkin feature to force all documents to be checked in again.
