    Okay, I am confused...I thought this plugin was just what I needed but now not sure...

    I have this installed and went through the tutorial and have it working but I need to know if this will do what I need...

    I need to be able to offer a Document Library similar to what sharepoint, and others do by presenting a menu tab on the web site called documents which displays a web page with a listing of the documents, preferably with the capabilites to have catagories and sub folders, that they can open and view the documents. I do not want them in WP Admin or dashboard looking under the document menu or media library... I want it to be on the web site page... I also need a way to allow a very novice user that will manage it to upload these documents which can be via WP Admin and dashboard.

    I do not see any way of doing this with this plugin easily unless there are some shortcodes or other items I am missing...

    Help please

    To do what you are describing you need to make a page template (that lists the documents) or custom post type archive template. Both of those are specific to your theme so there isn't anything included in the plugin for that.

    Jeff,

    Access documents via shortcode (for example):
    [display-posts post_type="umw_document" taxonomy="library" tax_term="fiction"]

    Using this plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/display-posts-shortcode/
