Hi Elaine!

Thanks for this information, this site is very good and usefull!
I ´m using joomla to create a intranet and I´m using ACL for control users access. Do you know how can I control the access for users in Media Manager? When I give permission to the user group, they access all content of Media Manager, but I´d like they access certain folders only.

Thank you!
Marcelo
