Hi guy, really nice plugin, just some question before buy it! I have seen in the doc that each user have a folder. Is this one created by default? I will not need them, i only need to create folders and give acces to some role. More, can i give for the “Folder A” the permission of writing to the “Group A” and of reading to the “Group B”? So somebody can only read and somebody can read and add file. Even, can i show all the file in the frontend with a tree view? Please let me know! Thanks

Yes, its created by default, but you can disable them from the file manager settings. And yes you can set group permissions for the folders, each group can have a folder with any kind of permissions, even multiple groups have a common shared folder.

We have 5 Groups (A,B,C,D,E). Let’s say we want to make a sub folder (file/folder) to be read only for Group A, and B. Another folder (file/Folder2) to be read only for Group A, C D E

What is the best way to do so?

Thanks!

How about the User group. We noticed we can assign multiple folder for the same users.

Is there a way to control which folder to display as default? Right now it displays from the root folder. Even though the user can navigate to different folder,we would like controlon which folder to display when the page load.

For example

[filemanager foldername=”*” defaultopen=”/files//folder”]

The default folder will be the one which was assigned first to that user, so you can remove all the folders assignments and then assign again in your favorite order.

Hello, I bought your plugin but it doesn´t work as I expected.

When I am logged out I can still access the pdf files that I uploaded to a users folder. My idea of the plugin was to restrict access so that only when that user is logged in he/she can access that file. No other logged in users besides admins and especially no public users. But on my local install the user folders all have chmodd 775 and I can access any file I want when logged out.

getredhawkstudio
The folder you are using must be inside the uploads folder, they are all public, use other folders or restrict the folder access with htaccess:

im seeing a lock icon on my folder and cannot upload??

access is rw

getredhawkstudio

You must have made a mistake, read only folders have lock icons on them. Double check and see if the access is rw, if it is, then email me the backend access, I’ll take a look.

Hello, Pre sales questions. Is this plugin supported with Multisite?

Thanks.

getredhawkstudio

Yes, but you have to use it individually on each site. Network activation wont work very well.

Hello, i have 5.3.3 and i have a little trouble…

In front-end interface UI the only button not works is: OrderBy or SortBy… when i click this do nothing.

I need resolve this. Thnks!

getredhawkstudio

Each of the sort have to modes, one is forward and one is reverse. You sometimes have to click twice to see them get sorted.

Default-user

Not work with one, two or more clicks. :-/

getredhawkstudio

Can you email me the your filemanager link.

Hi – is it possible to set the default view to list view? I’m a developer so if you can just point me to the right file / location and give me some help as to what to edit I can do that.

Thanks!

getredhawkstudio

It should be working, email me the backend access. Let me take a look.

Sure – what is your email address?

Hi. How can i pass options to the underlying elFinder lib ? I see that i can configure what buttons appear on the menu ( cut paste extract etc ). I’d like to disable some of those. How to i do it ? Thanks !

getredhawkstudio
You can configure it like this:
https://github.com/Studio-42/elFinder/wiki/Client-configuration-options#contextmenu
You need to edit the filemanager_string.php and find the elfinder initialization string.

Hi. We have bought this plugin. We need to create a subfolder where the plugin create the user folders by default. Ex. /wp-uploads/users/[USER_FOLDERS]. Actually the plugin create the users folders directly in /wp-uploads then when we give the permissions to a shop-manager to administrate the users folders they can see also the other wordress wp-uploads files and folders. We just want they can see the users folders only. In other words we would like to know where the plugin create, in the code, the Users folders in wp-uploads, to change it in wp-uploads/users/[USER_FOLDERS] by default.

We apologize for our english

Best regards

getredhawkstudio
You can edit the filemanager.php file and change the folders like this:
On Line 312 and 313, replace this: $newdir = str_replace("\\", "/", $upload_dir['basedir'].'/'.$user->user_login.'/'); $newurl = str_replace("\\", "/", $upload_dir['baseurl'].'/'.$user->user_login.'/'); With: $newdir = str_replace("\\", "/", $upload_dir['basedir'].'/users/'.$user->user_login.'/'); $newurl = str_replace("\\", "/", $upload_dir['baseurl'].'/users/'.$user->user_login.'/'); And do the exact same thing at line 198 and 199 too. Follow this link for clear code:

Hi,

I’ve purchased this plugin and it works great. However, I would like to configure the file manager to work outside wordpress (i.e. on a different path like /media/users for example). I followed the instructions in the FAQ and that worked for uplolading and downloading files but when trying to preview or open a file the link is looking in wp-content/uploads. Any ideas?

getredhawkstudio

To make it work outside the wordpress is tricky, specially when the other folder is not present under another domain. If this is the case, you wont be able to preview files since there is no link to that file. You are gonna have to ask a developer to do it for you.

Hi,

Is it possible to assign a subfolder directly?

Thanks!

getredhawkstudio
To reveal more levels of subfolders, you need to edit the settings.php file and one line 5:
define('FILE_LEVELS', 3);

Change the 3 to 4 (or 5). This will show you more levels of subfolders in the dropdown menu where you assign a folder to someone. If you set this number too high it will show you tons of folders and you may not be able to easily find the folder you are looking for.

izquierdomasmotter

Thanks, it works right for us.

So, other little question, is it possible to translate the admin settings pages?

getredhawkstudio

The filemanager itself can be translated from the filemanager settings page, it also is automatically translated with WPML.

Hi,

is there an option to add tags or category to files?

getredhawkstudio

There is no option for tags or categories. You can organize the files with folders.

We have a closed network WordPress site where I already use this File Manager plugin. I noticed that whenever I upload anything through the File Manager, it automatically appears in the Media Library. We are now building a special section OUTSIDE of the uploads folder for FRONT ACCESS file downloads on a particular page. I do not want these files to appear in the Media Library. Is there any was to exclude this particular parent folder and all it’s files and sub-folders from appearing in the Media Library?

getredhawkstudio

You can go to filemanager settings page and disable sync with media manager.

Great. Thank you. Also for the front access display, my client would like to remove all the buttons in the top toolbar, except the search field. Is there an easy way to do that or do I have to overwrite the css with “display:none” for each button?

getredhawkstudio
Its easier if you do the display:none procedure but you could also use the configuration inside the filemanager_string.php like this:

I saw that you answered this question for a user 10 months ago, but I don’t this it’s applicable any longer in the latest version 5…

For the Front End Access, I would like to make the default view a list view instead of icon view, as Chrome and Internet Explorer still display the icon view, even when I change the Settings to default to list view. Since you told the previous user to change some code in the functions folder, and I don’t see a functions folder, I’m assuming the structure of the plugin has changed.

Can you help me with updated code to make this happen for version 5?

getredhawkstudio

Email me the problem from my profile. I have to keep this in records. I’ll email you this fix once I am done with it.

I have a client that asked the following:

We are looking to add an investor and lender portal to our website.

For the lender portal, we’d like to have a menu tab added where we would provide the lender a login ID and password to gain access to a folder with documents they’ve requested that they could download.

For the investor portal, we’d like to have a tab made available where investors could click and provide a unique login ID and password. We would need each investor (we would need to have over 100 unique logins/folders) to have a unique folder so they could gain access to their personal data but not see one another’s data (i.e. investor K-1s, check transaction history, letters, etc).

Would this plugin work for these scenarios?

getredhawkstudio

yes, every user gets their own folder by default, and no one can access each other’s folders, you dont have to do anything to set this up, its the default feature.

When you UPLOAD a file using the filemanager, it syncs fine with media manager, however if you MOVE a file, you WILL break the image association AND the media library association. For organizing an existing media library, this plugin is TOTALLY USELESS! UNLESS YOU suggest a way to re-associate MOVED FILES on the fly, or in bulk, shouldn’t you state this UPFRONT in the list of PLUGIN FEATURES? This plugin does SYNC OK with the media manager: ONLY PARTIALLY TRUE. Drag and Drop EYE CANDY is pointless for organizing unless you maintain the database associations.:depressed:

getredhawkstudio

Yes, it syncs when the file is uploaded, when moving around the files inside the filemanager, it wont sync. We will resolve this issue in the coming updates.

Is there an easy way to use a different jQuery theme?

And/Or, can you point me to the file that selects Smoothness?

getredhawkstudio

Yes you can use any jqueryui theme, other themes may not look very good though.

Hello, I created a text file using the file manager with in a ‘test clients’ automated folder, using the test client account. I am not able to use the File manager editor to open and edit the file.

I have the default permissions in Settings for Read/Write.

Looking at the file in FTP, it’s permissions are 644.

Is the editor supported on all browsers and devices?

What have I missed?

And! Thank you, this software is phenomenal.

It should be working, email me the backend access, I’ll take a look.
