Hi Jamal Thanks for your help so far. Quick question. I want all new users to default their private folders from the standard read only to read/write without manual intervention. Is this possible?

getredhawkstudio
Yes it is, but its a little tricky, go to the plugin folder and edit activate.php inside functions folder, on line 65:
update_usermeta($user->ID, 'file_manager_readwrite', 2);
Change 2 to 1. Also in advacned-wp-file-manager.php, on line 262:
update_usermeta($user->ID, 'file_manager_readwrite', 2);
Change 2 to 1. Then deactivate and activate the plugin.

can this be used to setup a download directory managed by a superadmin on a multisite network, then allow only site admins access to the same directory with read only permissions. I do not want general users to have access at all.

getredhawkstudio

You can restrict general users, but admins will have all the access and they can change the read/write access for anyone.

I’m running a wordpress intranet in a closed network. We have a drive shared to the whole network using samba (debian server) and I want a file manager like this, but I need it to display the filesystem in this specific drive and it is obviously not under the web root. Is this something that this plugin could do?

getredhawkstudio

Well I am sure it can be manipulated to work this way, but its better to use elfinder: http://elfinder.org/ instead of this plugin, it will give you more configuration options, it wont be hard for you to work with it as long as you know php.

Awesome, that looks like it could be a goer. Thanks for the tip!

I have changed the URL for the whole website via ‘search and replace’. Everything’s up and running, in exception of the File Manager Plugin, which returns the following error: “Invalid backend configuration. Readable volumes not available.”

Do you know how I can fix this?

getredhawkstudio

Can you email me the backend access, I’ll take a look.

I reinstalled the plugin and reuploaded the files in order to register them again in WP, everything’s working fine now. Is there a way to avoid that AFM registers JS & HTML files upon upload though?

getredhawkstudio

In the next update we are restricting the registration to only images. But for now you can try to implement that on your own if you know a little php.

This is a nice plugin. However, it is not really a replacement for the Media section of WordPress. Which is what I was hoping to accomplish. It’s close but is missing two key elements as far as I can tell.

1) When you load files via the file manager it does not create all the versions/sizes of images that the built in WordPress Media up-loader does. When you go to the Media library you can see there is no thumbnail for images loaded via the plugin. You cannot edit an images meta from the plugin.

2) There is no way to sort down to a particular folder when inserting media into a post or page.

If the plugin could do these two things it could almost replace the built in Media post type interface in the WordPress admin.

getredhawkstudio

Hi, Thanks for the review, this plugin is not actually intended to replace the Media Manager, it is mainly for folder and file sharing for non-admin users as well, it has however image editing capabilities, you can make custom thumbnails by duplicating an image and resizing it.

Hi there,

Is it possible to remove the default styling of the front end editor and use your own custom styling instead?

getredhawkstudio

Yes you can edit the css of the plugin.

Thank you! Is it also possible to change the language to Dutch?

getredhawkstudio

You can follow these instruction to change the language, you can use “nl” for dutch instead of “ru”

Is it possible to stop the File Manager creating auto folders for each user? It works nice, but I don’t need this functionality on my website. Thanks!

getredhawkstudio
You can edit the plugin to stop this functionality, edit the advanced-wp-file-manager.php and change the line 259 from:
mkdir($newdir, 0777);
To:
//mkdir($newdir, 0777);
And in the file “functions > activate.php”, change the line 56, from:
mkdir($newdir, 0777);
To:
//mkdir($newdir, 0777);

Hi Jamal,

A couple of pre sales questions.

Is it possible to generate sub folders under the users main folder for example 1-52 1 folder for each week of the year,

And then moving all files in all folders to a common folder on a date so that one person could have access to all files in a central download space?

finally one the users upload form the files would be uploaded to the correct week folder based on date?

getredhawkstudio

Well for the first question, yes the admin can access any folder and make subfolders, but to allow the uploaded files to automatically be moved to the current week’s folder would require good programming skills on your part, or you could hire someone to do that.

Hello Jamal, maybe I misunderstood this plug-in. This is what I want to do: I have two kinds of users. Members and Board members.

If you are a member, you should only get access to the folder ’/content/uploads/Members’ This folder should be assigned to all users automatically.

If you are a board member, you should also have access to the folder ‘content/uploads/BoardMembers’

Is this possible, and how do I do the setup? So far it does not matter if I assign a special folder to the board members, it will not show anyway.

getredhawkstudio

By default all users get the same folder, you can use “Same Folder For All Users” option to assign same folder to all users, or you can assign each user their own folders. This plugin doesn’t support user groups folder assignment for now, but we will integrate this in the coming updates.
