Hi,

Can anyone recommend a good document library system.

I don't mind paying for one, but i am looking for something that could handle / do the following:

- allow the admin to create document folders (or categories) so that they can add the documents into different folders and categories in the backend, where they also appear in an organised list on the front end
- allow the admin to password protect the document page on the site so that only certain users can see and download the documents

- ability to notify members by email when new documents are uploaded

Finishing up a new WordPress site right now that uses the free version of WP-Filebase found here:
http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-filebase/

Seems to be working well so far.

The free version allows restriction by roles. The paid version allows password protection per file according to the summary.

Thanks, is there a way to only allow certain people from seeing the list of documents that belong to one category...

You can set permissions for each category separately. Permissions to access files in a particular category can be restricted to users with a certain assigned role (Subscriber, Contributor, etc), however, the category cannot be restricted to individual users.
