Manager is component where I attempt to create a tool for files management inside Joomla article. Main functions are image management, uploads and insert all files type directly inside article. Development is still in progress but you can try to test this beta version.

Manager Package consist of editor button (plugin) and Manager component.

Joomla Files Manager by OLSA


  • crop and resize images inside article
  • upload multiple files
  • resize images while uploading to maximum allowed size
  • upload and insert documents inside article
  • create intro image and full text image with "one click"
  • insert image to editor preserving responsive design
  • trim and replace spaces with hyphens in file names in upload process
  • easily find file in current folder with filter option


After install, go to Extensions/Plugin manager, select type editors-xtd and enable Button - Manager.
Check and set desired component options inside administrator menu (Components/Manager).

For Joomla 3.6x and up and with Joomla TinyMCE editor, Manager button is positioned inside editors icons. But, if you are using older Joomla version, or JCE editor than Manager button is under editor.

Go to Manage/Extensions, and search for Manager and only check row with Type: Package, and press Unistall button.
