AttachmentsJoomla 3.2 Compatiblity Release – Fixes issue with displaying options under Joomla 3.2. Fixes a few minor bugs. This release works with Joomla 2.5.7+, 3.1.x and 3.2.

The ‘Attachments’ extension for Joomla! allows files to be uploaded and attached to articles and other types of content. URLs can also be attached. ‘Attachments’ includes the ability to attach files and edit attachments from the front end as well as from the administrative back end. There are options to control who can see the attachments and who can upload them, along with many other options to increase its flexibility and usefulness.

Releases 3.1+ and 2.2+ give you several ways to add, edit, and delete your attachments on the front end, back end, and in article editors on the front and back ends (including during article creation). There are many options to control who can see attachments. When you add or edit attachments, page updates are done quickly without full page reloads.

If you plan to use this extension for sensitive files, use the ‘Secure’ mode. This provides secure storage of attachment files and prevents access by anyone without logging in.

Attachments 3.1 includes many new features:
— Supports both Joomla 2.5.7+ and 3.x!
— Improved permissions handling for backend users with limited permissions.
— New option to display attachments to the public that require logging in to download.
— URL attachments are now handled in a secure way (download count works for both).
— Now supports Joomfish (with additional plugin).
— Refactored to allow template overrides of all CSS files and images.
— More robust file downloading.
— Many fixes and improvements.
