Dear dropfiles team
We absolutely love dropfiles and it's GoogleDrive integration possibility! But in our opinion, one big thing is still missing: It's about the possibility to show all downloads of a category including subfolders directly from a joomla menu.
What is it about?
If we have a lot of downloads to show directly (out of different subfolders) on one single page, we have to include each subfolder separately to a single module, then load this module into an article and then display this article over the joomla single article menu.
What's the problem
This is a lot of manual work and - even more important - results in a huge amount of single "API calls" out of an article which usually slows down the whole website.
What could be the solution?
I have no idea about the possibilities and the problems of/with the Google API and the complexity of the component, of course. But I'd suggest to realize a component menu, which allows to display one category (with subfolders on demand) or even better: with toggle selection. And why not integrate a layout switcher as well?
As far as I understand the background of the component, this would reduce the amount of API calls which should result in a significant speed enhancement.
