JP CE DocMan List
JP CE DocMan List is a YOOtheme Pro Custom Element that integrates with Joomlatools popular extension DocMan. DocMan is the no 1 document manager for Joomla and is a full suite often used in organisations and intranet websites.DocMan has been the go-to Doucment Manager for years in the Joomla ecosystem. We have used it ourselves on many web projects and its our preferred files and documentation handler.However, we felt there was no easy way for our YOOtheme Pro clients (which is 90% by now) to add download links and DocMan categories to their frontends.
