we are going to set up a few sites with a download manager.

is there a way to batch import using the file structure to generate the categories and sub categories?

Hi,

Nope, the importer allows you to select files from FTP and import it in a selected category already created.
But you can't import a structure.

but if I import the structure into the database, I can then batch by category then... or if I do that I can but the files in a directory in Joomla, and perhaps map the table structure in the database, and then import from there (to database, not through the extension)

Hi,

Yes of course it can be done, it require some database work.
Categories are indexed in the database so you can create categories from the database.

great, and that's what I thought. We're planning on using this with a client that has multiple brands (websites) for their b2b. We want a solid document management platform. I had a pending question about thumbnails that would help us move forward with this extension.

Hi,

I can't give you a solid release date because we haven't started the version 3 yet, we just have feature in our release system.
We are currently working on an integration of all the tools in a free advanced editor (see attached). Once we're done, we're going back to droppics/dropfiles.
I let you know for sure!

Cheers,
