Описание

#1 WORDPRESS FILE MANAGER PLUGIN

Frontend File Manager Plugin is a light weight plugin that allows admin and other users to upload, share and manage their files with restricted access.

This plugin will add a file sharing functionality on your WordPress website. Your site users will be able to login and upload their files and manage the access to those files.

Free version Demo

PRO version Demo

The plugin is simple to use and comes with 2 shortcodes, one for uploading files and another for displaying the files that they uploaded and that are Shared with them. We recommend that you use them together on a single page.

Shortcode for uploading form is “[upf_upload]”
Shortcode for displaying files is “[upf_display]”

PRO version shortcode is “[upf_manager]”

Users can add/remove other users from their files by their email addresses. Only the allowed users will be able to view/download those files and unauthentic users will see a permission denied error message (even if they have direct URL to the file).

Your users will be able to manage their files, add a title and note to the uploaded files. They can also delete their uploaded files. Site administrator can view all the files from the WP media library and will have the full control over them.

If you have any feedback or more features request, let me know by creating a support ticket and I will add/improve it asap.

Часто задаваемые вопросы

Are the files secure?

Yes, the files are uploaded to a different directory and the files will be accessible only by allowed users or admin. Public URL to a file will show a permission error.

How do I configure the plugin?

To keep it simple, the plugin doesn’t have any separate settings page. You can simply use the 2 shortcodes on any page that display the upload form and user files.

What are the shortcodes

Shortcode for uploading form is “[upf_upload]”
Shortcode for displaying files is “[upf_display]”
We recommend that you use them on a single page.

Does this plugin modify .htaccess file?

Yes, the plugin needs to write a rewrite rule to the .htaccess file to allow/deny user files access. You can manually add the code by yourself as well.

Will the user files appear in the backend?

Yes, the site administrator can view/delete all the files uploaded by users in the backend.

How can users share their files?

After uploading a file, it will appear where the display shortcode is placed. User can then click on that file and add/remove the users from the right side panel using their email address one by one. Those email addresses need to exist on your website as user accounts.

Does the plugin send an email to the users?

No, when adding a user by an email address to the file, the plugin doesn’t send any email to the target user. The target user needs to login to view the files that are shared with him/her. PRO version has the email notification feature.

Files type Restrictions?

Only the images and documnet files are allowed for now. PRO version allows more file types.

Great dropbox system directly inside WordPress. You should use directly the pro version and this is not expensive. And great talking with the support.

Earlier this plugin allowed admin to upload files through post type inside admin dashboard and assign it to particular user. Author removed this functionality completely in new version and made wonderful plugin to useless one.

The plugin works smoothly on and it's really helpful when it comes to sharing files with other website's users. It lets you choose who you want to share your files with, plus the latest update allows to share entire folders. The developer is always available to offer help if there are any issues too. highly recommended
