I created a folder inside of my Drupal directory where my client can directly FTP into and upload or remove PDFs.
What I'm trying to do is create a page called "Documents" which then displays all PDFs in that directory as a table. So when a new PDF is either uploaded or deleted a new row is either added or deleted in the table.
I found this thread here: Can you create a view to display all files within a certain directory? - And was looking into Filebrowser.
The problem is I want to be able to control the front end look of the table. Because the function of the table would be for users to be able to download and view the PDFs that the client uploaded in the directory.
Would this approach here by my best solution, I'm trying to stay away from using any outside modules. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/8559308/how-can-i-list-files-in-a-directory-using-php
