As you know, JCE file manager is not free.

So, I am after a free plugin or component that can attach files (pdf,doc,zip, ...) to an article, but it must provide easy access from editor, like file manager of JCE.

Also I need that this component supports drag&drop files option. Is there any free plugin/component that can do it?

(also it should be compatible with joomla 3.x)

    Have you checked the Joomla Extensions Directory or even tried Google for this?

  • Phoca Download - Component and Plugin. Not sure about drag & drop, though.

  • There are a few tools that I think can do this e.g. extensions.joomla.org/extensions/news-display/article-elements/… but I don't know any free ones. The Joomla 3.5 media manager may help enable this? Joomla 3.5 is scheduled to be released very soon. Jan 22, 2016 at 2:03

TinyMCE editor is free, included in the Joomla core and supports drag and drop since Joomla 3.5.0.
