This module is designed for Joomla 3.9.x. To install go to the install/uninstall extensions page of Joomla Administrator and upload the package file. Then go to the Module Manager page and activate the module.


To use this module as content in an article, first ensure than the loadmodule plugin (Content - Load Module) is Enabled.

Second, give an arbitrary Position to the Easy File Uploader module, such as 'x_load', and configure the parameters.

Thirdly, in the article, type '{loadposition x_load}'. Please ensure that the Menu Assignment is set to 'All Pages' or to the specific article that it is to be displayed in. To control which types of users have access to this module, set the Access Level in the module.

To specify how many multiple uploads, go to the Advanced Parameters section, and choose from 1 to 10.

To allow more than one module on the same page, or article, give each of them a different arbitrary position. Then go to the Advanced Parameters section and specify a different Input File Variable Name for each of them. If they all have the same Input File Variable Name, it will cause any uploads to one module folder to show erroneous messages for the other modules.
