Using Document library web parts

All Document library functionality is ensured by the following web parts:

  • Document library - designed for general use anywhere on your website. Displays all documents from a specified location except those whose Owner is a communitygroup.
    Group document library - designed for use within the context of a community group. Displays documents whose Owner is the specified community group along with other documents stored under the specified path.

The web parts have the following specific properties:



Library path

Path to the document under which the library documents are stored, e.g. /My-document-library/My-images; only CMS.File documents from the first level under the entered path are displayed.

Page size

Sets the number of documents listed by the web part on a single page.

Document form

Alternative form used for document property editing (after choosing Properties in the library menu). If blank, the CMS.File.DocumentLibrary form is used. If this form is not available, the CMS.File document type’s default form is used.

Group name

Available only for the Group document library web part. Documents owned by the specified group stored under the Library path are displayed along with other documents under the same path.

Combine with default culture

if No, the web part only displays documents from the current culture that are stored under the Library path. If Yes, documents from the default culture are displayed along with documents from the current culture. In this case, the default culture documents are marked with the culture’s flag and the Translate option is available in their menu.

If enabled, only documents for which the current user has the Read permission are displayed by the web part. If disabled, all documents are displayed.
