RubberDoc version 0.9.6 Keeps your Docs in Order!

Aug 25th Update: we have just resolved 2 bugs regarding the doc reordering in the Administration back-end. We aren’t going to release a new version for only 2 bug fixes, so if you have downloaded the version 0.9.6 prior to this date, please download and install the extension again, or simply update the source code files for the administration back-end.

RubberDoc Version 0.9.6 has just been released!

Now RubberDoc can not only keep your Docs in a row, it can keep them in Order too! We have implemented ordering for the categories and category pages. You can even assign ordering from the edit RubberDoc Plugin.

This was a one day update, based on some requests from our Client SPARC BC and some of the recommendations that all of you have provided.

We apologize for not being as responsive lately in answering your comments posted here. We’ve head an early Fall client rush and we have to deliver all of those contracts that we sign. If you have any immediate enquiries that requires enhancements to the RubberDoc, you can always hire us. In the mean time we do our best to respond to your questions here on our blog.

This project has been first inspired by our client Social Planning & Research Council of British Columbia (SPARC BC) you can see RubberDoc being used to manage more than 140 documents on their website. We have just launched their Joomla powered website few days ago.

Updates

21-Aug-2008
+ Document ordering has been implemented
+ Download Link ordering within the articles has been implemented

    Please tell me RubberDoc is still under development, it is soo useful.

    Multi file upload isn’t working for me. I haven’t try to track it down yet, it would have been useful on initial setup of my docs, but the extension is so darn easy to use it’s no show stopper for me.

    Is there a technique to have a doc be uncategorized ?

  2. Joe

    Great component! Quick question – I’ve installed the mod_rubberdoc module and published a file only for registered users. However, when a non-registered user clicks on the filename which appears in the mod_rubberdoc module, they get a 404 page not found error. Should an error be displayed to the user indicating they need to be logged in to view this resource? Any help would be appreciated.

    Love the extension. One question and request. Can you include a front end load? Or is it possible now? I’m thinking for the purpose of uploaded an edited version of any document that i’ve loaded.

  4. Gerry

    multi-load only works with IE. I’m a Firefox guy and it doesn’t work for me there. but for all the posts about the multi-load concern, use IE

    Re: Teo’s problem (“Also, the order i set in menu doesn’t seems to work. I try to use “Recently Created first” but recent documents show last in list”) …

    Edit components/com_rubberdoc/models/category.php and change “ASC” to “DESC” on lines 73 (recently_modified_first) and 78 (recently_created_first).

    Please help me. after installing rubberdoc in joomla, it shows following errors while accessing manage documents from backend.

    Fatal error: Multiple access type modifiers are not allowed in C:\xampp\htdocs\lawcommission\administrator\components\com_rubberdoc\models\docs.php on line 114

  7. Steve

    RubberDoc is great, but I would like to restrict group access further than Joomla allows – what I need is a plugin like “Admin-User-Access” or “ACL (Access Control List)”. Does any plugin work better than another with RubberDoc?

  8. erik

    I do not know how to do this. “Please create a writable directory in the Joomla root and name it “rubberdoc”” Can anyone please give me direction on where to put this directory? Thanks

  9. Mark

    I’m receiving the exact same error as Rabi (Jan 29, 2010). Fatal error: Multiple access type modifiers are not allowed in C:\xampp\htdocs\lawcommission\administrator\components\com_rubberdoc\models\docs.php on line 114

    Install is on Windows Vista Home, Apache 2.2.11, PHP 5.3.0, Joomla 1.5.15.

    Also Browse Files button doesn’t function in “Multiple File Upload”

    Can you please assist. Product sounds great and would resolve so many issues for us.

    I am also receiving the same error as Rabi and Mark.
    This happened when my server was upgraded to PHP 5.3.
    The solution is apparently to edit the file at
    /administrator/components/com_rubberdoc/models/docs.php
    The line 114 reads

    public public function getPagination()

    PHP complains that “public” appears twice: just remove one of these key words and you are done, this line should read

    public function getPagination()

    That is all for that problem, but there might be other annoying facts.

    Hi there,

    I’ve been using RubberDoc for a few days now, no issues until today. I’ve posted additional docs under a new category, all shows well in Joomla admin but nothing shows on the net.

    Please, I’d appreciate your urgent assistance.

    Kind regards,
    Lisa

  13. Liomar

    follow the path where the error is indicating (/ administrator / components / com_rubberfoc / models / docs.php). docs.php open the file in line 114 there are two words (public), delete one and save the file. rubberdoc your ready.

  14. Terry

    @Rabi: Multiple access type modifiers Error in model docs.php on line 114

    I opened the model described in the error message and found the following:
    public public function getPagination()…

    I assume it should just be:
    public function getPagination()…

    I guess some servers ignore it and others don’t… I would change the line anyway, think it’s a type error or so (if not, someone may tell us what it means!)

    Best regards,
    Terry

    Unfortunately i can download documents but not open them using RubberDoc. Whenever i try my Adobe Reader says the file format is corrupted???

  16. Dave

    Multi file upload doesn’t work for me either. I’m using Joomla version 1.5.15. Tried it in both Firefox3 & IE7. Any help?
    Thanks.

  17. Ino mart

    Solved the Multi file Upload
    I use a non-English version of Joomla so I try to explain what you have to change

    In Joomla background go to Website – General settings
    Go to tab system
    Set “Enable Flash uploader” to none (it is the last option in my menu)

  18. Zerivael

    I’ve encountered a problem with menu item that points to RubberDoc’s documents category. When I open it something unloads mootools and my site looks crippled. Which part of the code is responsible for removing mootools from seaction?

  19. Todd

    Rubberdocs (9.6) was working great until recently. Now when I try to create a new document I get Error Saving Document. I’ve tried Google Chrome, IE 8, different computers on different networks.

    Any help? Nothing has changed to my knowledge. I have 50+ documents added (that work) – so uninstalling doesn’t seem like a great option. I’ve tried installing over top of the current version – it won’t let me.

    I need help!
