Hi,
I want to use this plugin for the site which will be use for internal staffs file sharing. Admin will create the folder and file, so the staffs can register, login and download the file, public will not be able to view/access to the file.

Can the group/user management be done automatically by using the role in Wordpress default? Like Subscriber, Author, Editor, Contributor? Or the role/group has to be set manually each time a new user register on the site?

Any faster way to group many users in a specific group/role?

getredhawkstudio

Yes, this is exactly how the plugin works, you can assign a folder to a group (subscribers, editors, admins etc) or assign folders individually to each user. Then you can add any files or folders and that group will be able to access them.

Is there a changelog?

Do not see what features or updates were added since April 2, 2015

getredhawkstudio

There were minor bugs that were dealt with. The update log can be viewed in the wordpress dashboard when update is available.

Hi,

In saw in a message that you told someone a link for restrict upload folder to public access (http://stackoverflow.com/a/19118529), but the solution don’t work.

The files that my client have in the users folders are confidential, so May not have public acces.

Is there anything to do with files, and subfolders of uploads?

Thanks.

getredhawkstudio

Can you email me the ftp, I’ll take a look. Also if you deny access to uploads folder, your website wont show any images, all the images are in the uploads folder.

Yes, I know, I will only deny acces to the .pdf files.

Wich email can I send you the acces?

getredhawkstudio

You can email me through my profile, there will be an email section in the right sidebar.

I can upload using Chrome and Safari just fine, but when I upload using Internet Explorer 11 I get an error message that says, “Invalid backend response. Data is empty.” The thing is despite the error the file actually uploads. I just need to to refresh the page to see the uploaded files. I can also delete the file without error.

Is there a fix to prevent this backend response error? My site is hosted on a Bluehost Wordpress server. My file manager directory is one level above the public html directory to keep its content private. File permissions for this folder are set to 755. I noticed files that I’ve uploaded have a 644 permission.

getredhawkstudio

Yeah internet explorer 11 does that without any reason, older versions of the internet explorer are fine, I couldn’t figure it out, I’ll see again if I can do something about it.

I just installed the plugin and have a simple question: how do I upload a file to a specific users directory? I read the documentation and can’t seem to find this simple answer. AreIs their some video tutorials anywhere or other help sources? Thanks for the help.

getredhawkstudio

To gain access to any folder, you first have to assign yourself that folder or a parent folder of that folder, In most cases you need to assign yourself the “uploads” folder with read/write access and you’ll have access to all the user folders.

HI there, I just purchased your plugin. I already read the documentation but I do not what to do. Here is what I am trying to fix; When I am working in the wordpress admin (backend) I can see the icons Toolbar but in the front-end I only see the folders and files but I cannot see any icon in the toolbar. I already checked the users permissions and everything looks ok.

getredhawkstudio

Hi, can you email me the backend access, let me take a look.

Hi, assigning folders to user groups is not working…it just shows the user error: “Permission denied” and the file manager window is blank for them. I have double checked that I set the correct folder for that user role.

These are user roles i have created through the “Advanced Access Manager” plugin…and the roles/assignment work properly for other plugins. I have many users and i really was expecting the ‘user group’ function to work as advertised.

Thanks.

Also, when I find the user in your “FM Users” page with the custom role, the “Role” columin in your plugin is blank…it shows the roles for the other Standard WP roles, but nothing for the custom role.

getredhawkstudio

Hi, the custom user groups will work as long as the custom user role plugin make the standard WordPress roles, which most plugins do. But some plugins create their own role types which only that plugin have access to, those user roles are not possible to be accessed by the file manager. Try using one of the plugins which make standard user roles.

Hi, I have a friend who use this plugin on their site, I test the plugin in his site and also use a plugin call ‘Advanced Access Manager’, so I can create new custom user role in WP.
When I set in your plugin to link a folder to this custom role group, it doesn’t work, the users in the custom group could not access the folder. Will you be able to fix this?
Also, I need a description field for all the file, maybe mouseover it to show the description or right click > Get info, I can pay for customization, can you do it?
Thanks!

getredhawkstudio

Advanced Access Manager roles are different then the standard wordpress user roles, they dont work with the filemanager, you can use other plugins that make standard wordpress roles. I will try to add the advanced access manager compatibility in the filemanager in the next update.

Hi sounds good but I’ll need to find other plugin for the role, as I need to block out some part in the admin area for those users.

By the way, how about the file description field? Possible to customize it and cost for customization?

getredhawkstudio

well I am working on something like that for a project right now, but its gonna take a little while, I will also add that in my coming updates. You would be able to right click on any file and an extra field will show up which can contain a popup or a link to another page/site.

Hi,

I’m considering this plugin for a client site we are building. A couple of questions if that’s OK…

1. Is there any limit to the type of file you can upload? 2. Can you assign folders/files to multiple user groups (i.e. assign one folder to both Administrators, Contributors and Editors, and another to just Administrators and Subscribers)? 3. Are there any limits to the number, or size of files the system can hold?

Thanks.

getredhawkstudio

There is no limits to what type or size of the files you upload, unless the server is forcing upload size limit. And yes you can assign any folder to any group with no limits.

This plugin has been working fantastically until very recently it suddenly stopped allowing access to the backend. I have checked the settings and the folder permissions within the plugin settings and also on my server to make sure nothing has changed but still I can’t add files any longer. Can you help me determine what might have changed please?

getredhawkstudio

Can you email me the backend access, I’ll figure this out.

Great file manager! Just bought and tested it. Just a question, I am currently using the plugin Hide My WP where I masked URLs of downloadable attachments (file/docs instead of wp-content/uploads/docs). With it, I can externally share the links without showing the WordPress file system.

Is there a way for me to automatically change/mask the links to the desired custom structure when I click Get Info and copy the link? Just want to know if this is possible. Thanks!

getredhawkstudio

I dont know how Hide My WP is working, but I think you can follow the same folder structure which the Hide My IP is using, for example if they are showing the uploads folder like this: xyz.com/uploads/ instead of xyz.com/wp-content/uploads/ then you can just edit the link the same way. There is no automatic function built into the filemanager for this.

HI, i want to buy your plug-in. i read the admin can creat folders and upload file (with user permission and etc.), but can users upload files and create their own folders in their area?

thanks

getredhawkstudio

You can assign a folder to any user with read only or read/write access. In case of read/write access, the user can create folders and files. Its up to the admin to decide if the user can create folders/files.

Default-user

one more question only. Users can see all the folder or only the ones they have access to?

getredhawkstudio

Only the ones they have access to.

Hey there! Nice plugin! But I have several mistakes regarding create Groups and user rights: 1. I created one Folder “DIN ISO 15378” 2. I want all users can only read. 3. One user can upload and delete files. 4. This is only possible in the backend of wordpress.

Is there any ways to upload or delete files directly of the page without Login in backend?

getredhawkstudio

You can assign that folder to subscriber with read only access, and assign it to that user with read/write access. It will only work in the backend if you dont generate a shortcode and use it in a post. Users can upload/delete files without logging in if you generate a shortcode with read/write access to “everyone” and use it in a post.

One more question: After I upload any files I become following message: Invalid backend Response. Data is empty.

But the file is uploaded anyway.

getredhawkstudio

The plugin may be doing multiple calls somehow, may be a jquery conflict. You can email me the backend access, I am gonna take a look.

Hi! I have a big problem with your plugin : When i want re-activate, it say “fatal error” with this code 0ba4439ee9a46d9d9f14c60f88f45f87… (the same code appear in front-end before first disable of File Manager Plugin)

I try to uninstall / re-install… it’s the same, i can’t re-enable this plugin.

Any idea? I have the last Wordpress version and last version of your plugin. No problem or bug anyway with other plugins. I have just install the last update of Wordpress 4.2.

Thanks for your help!

Hello,

Is there any way to configure email notifications when a file gets uploaded? My goal would be to have the site owner get a notification when their client adds a new file to the clients folder.

How can I set the default directory for the document manager to be something else? Can I set automatically generated folders to be created within a different directory ( root/documents/ ) ?

getredhawkstudio
You can change the default folder for each user like this:

The email notification when a file is not available, I may add it in the future updates though.
