Hi, i'm fairly new to Joomla but it looks like a great framework so far. What i cant seem to find however is a good way (or plugin) to share files and resources? I'd really like the ability for admin or 'special' users to be able to upload documents to a central organised repository that could be accessed by registered users. Users could click on a menu item and drill down directories etc.

All help much appreciated.

Joomla has various download managers. I am currently using following

This has all the features you are looking for. But only administrator can upload.

DocMan is great - but to use on a 1.5 website - you need to run in legacy mode, which is not ideal -  but might be a reasonable trade off in some cases.
