This is a flexible, simple-to-use plugin that is used to list the contents of any folder in either a table or a list. The folder listing can display the filename, with or without the extension, with or without the date modified and file size, as well as a icon representing the file type. It has the feature of allowing the user to specify whether the filename listed should be linked or not.
This plugin has the additional feature that allows for displaying subfolders and viewing the contents of subfolders as well. The user can also click on subfolder name to show or hide its contents The action to show or hide the contents is animated via Mootools. For table display, the administrator can specify the text headings for the columns as well.
