This documentation is not using the current rendering mechanism and will be deleted by December 31st, 2020. The extension maintainer should switch to the new system. Details on how to use the rendering mechanism can be found here.

FE File Tree

The fal_securedownload extension comes with a filetree plugin you can use to display your folders/files as a tree in the frondend with force-download links.


The default templates can be found like any other extbase/fluid based extension in:


If you want to override these you can set these constants:

plugin.tx_falsecuredownload {
  view {
    layoutRootPath = EXT:your_ext/path/to/your/layouts/folder
    partialRootPath = EXT:your_ext/path/to/your/partials/folder
    templateRootPath = EXT:your_ext/path/to/your/templates/folder

Collapsible FolderTree

There is a ready to use jQuery snippet available in the typoscript template of ext:fal_securedownload.

jQuery needs to be included in the FE for this to work.

The state of the collapsed folders is saved in the session of the user. When user is logged-in it is saved in the persisted session.
