Hi, I have a suggestion for a feature. As you know, Windows allows people to add metadata to every file (comments, tags, etc.). I think it would be useful if the plugin could pull in that metadata and display it in the “Get Info” dialog for a file. We could use the “Comments” field to enter notes on the file. It would also be nice if your file manager’s “search” box could index that metadata so that we could search by it. Thanks

getredhawkstudio

Yeah that’s a good idea, thanks, I’ll write this down for the future updates.

Thank you!

hello nice plugin! (Item Purchase Code: fa949b3c-e847-4ce7-a5e6-5cdfc31332a7) But now I have a serious problem! I have created the site in a sub direcotyr (/ test) now that I have finished the work, hop moved everything into the root of the site, but when I enter the pages where I put the shortcode [filemanager access = “r”], I get an error alert

Invalid response from the backend The data are not in JSON format

What happened? I also tried to disable / remove plug and recharge it but it does not work! How can I fix? I urgently need your response. Thank You

getredhawkstudio

You are using the wrong shortcode, you have to generate a shortcode from the backend, or you can use [filmanager] to display the default folders to everyone, or [filemanager folder=”*“] to display all the folders assigned to the current user.

Default-user

before this problem was all automatic. I entered the short code, (this: [filemanager access = “r”]) in the pages users, each user displayed the own folder. It worked great! Lam after migrating from a sub-directory to the root came out this problem. Now I regenerated the shiortcodce and I’m going crazy but I do not understand how to solve! I need is a fast, really fast. I can give you access to the admin to restore functionality?

getredhawkstudio

Sure, email me the admin access.

I have been looking for a plugin like this. I am interested in purchasing this plugin but an absolute must is S3 integration. I didn’t see anything listed about that. Is this plugin able to use an S3 bucket for storage?

If an S3 bucket directly is not able to be specified, I did notice an option in the screenshots under ‘Filemanager Settings’ that said ‘Sync with Media Manager’. Does this mean the WP Media Library? And if so – does that work with ALL file types? The note next to the switch mentioned only syncing images. I would need all file types.

If it is all file types, does it invoke processes that would be used when uploading through the real media library? I am currently using other plugins (https://wordpress.org/plugins/amazon-s3-and-cloudfront/) that catch all file uploads coming through the media library and seamlessly pushes them to S3. If your sync option uses the media library upload process, I think this could work.

And if all else fails and you’re just not quite sure if that would work, do you have a money back guarantee so I can try the plugin? Since there is no trial version I have no way of testing this without actually purchasing it first. Thanks!!!

getredhawkstudio

Hi, the plugin doesn’t support S3 storage, and it syncs only images with WP Media Library, but it does invoke all the file operations associated with media library like thumbnail creation etc. You can email me if you want to try out the plugin.

Hi there, I am looking for a file management system like this. I would like to know if there is a way for this plug-in to show which user uploaded the file (and/or who edited it last). Thanks.

getredhawkstudio

Hi, I am afraid this feature is not available in the plugin, I have a note of this for the future updates, hope for the best.

Default-user

Thanks for the reply :) Would be great to have.

Is there any option for email notifications to be sent whenever a file is uploaded into a folder assigned to a user?

getredhawkstudio

I am gonna have to implement that soon, alot of people are asking for it, and I am so lazy :)

Default-user

Please do it as soon as possible. :)

getredhawkstudio

I’ll try my best.

Hi, I spent time reading the comments. Although this plugin proves of great functionality there couple of things that need to be changed, have also been asked by many others, and still their solution is not clear. I would need to:

- hide some icons from the toolbar - enlarge the icons size a bit, they are small and tiring! - also their colors are very faint, why??

Regards, Pavlos

getredhawkstudio

The faint color icons are the disabled ones, also you can edit the size and icons using css. Email me if you need help resizing them.

Default-user

Many thanks for your prompt reply, I meant the active icons because they look weak and blur. Ok, I will email you for directions on editing (re-sizing, recoloring, and hiding) the toolbar icons.

regards, Pavlos

Got your email, replied.

Hey, ...nice and functional plugin. But I have app 500 registered users on multisite WP and want some of them to add personal folder. Within WPROOTSITE > DASHBOARD > USERS (within plugin) are listed only first four pages of users (40 users) where are the others? Can I somehow enlarge page list…

Best in advance, Klemen Lavrih

getredhawkstudio

There is a next/prev link at top, also you can go to the wordpress users menu, there would be a link infront of all the users named “Folders”.

Default-user

Thanks for response. Prev/Next link appears within DASHBOARD > USERS menu, but only for FOUR list pages (first 40 users). At the fourth page “next” link disappears. Looks like plugin can list only first 40 users (I have about 500 of them). Luckily I found “folders” within WP users menu as you suggest.

getredhawkstudio

Thanks, I will look into it.

Love the plugin. However, I am having some trouble displaying the File Manager on the front-end. I generated the shortcode but don’t know where to put it to display the File Manager in a page called Documents. Any help?

getredhawkstudio

You just paste the shortcode in that page. If you cant do it yourself, you can email me. I’ll do it.

Thank you. I am fairly new to WordPress and shortcodes. Just figured out how to do it. Awesome plugin. This is exactly what I needed. Thanks for your help!

mtnadmin Purchased

Great plugin and it’s almost doing everything I need.

I’m trying to set folders for specific groups of customers by using roles and am having mixed results.

customer group a -> folder a customer group b -> folder b customer group c -> folder c

For some reason customer group a and c are working, but customer b and any others I create new are getting “permission denied”.

Desperately need to get this fixed, willing to hire pay as needed.

getredhawkstudio

You must have a made a mistake, email me through my profile, I’ll help you out.

Hi, I newly buy the plugin and installed. I can use the functions in admin panel, almost done. But for a user, the basic features are working except “upload file” Is there any special operations for front-end user? The shortcode is ” [filemanager foldername=”wp-content/uploads/Doktor” groups=”Author” access=”rw”]”

BTW, the user documents (http://www.redhawk-studio.com/demos/docs/filemanager/) is old I think, because there is no such screen or properties in plugin.

Add: The mouse right click, and on the menu the drag-and-drop is working, there is some problem on open error file menu of computer. I check the status on Chrome and Firefox, also control the pop-up blocker etc.

getredhawkstudio

Email me the details, I’ll take a look.

Sorry to ask for help but I removed the previous version of advanced file manager to install the new version. Plugin is installed but am not seeing a folder list – can see users and group – just getting a blank page where the folders should be. No error message just blank page. Help please.

getredhawkstudio

Email me the backend access, I’ll take a look.

Hi there

I am interested in purchasing this product, I just have some questions on it. I need this for a wordpress site. The site has multiple pages that will have downloadable PDFs. We need to be able to go to those PDF’s and edit/delete at any given time. Does this plugin allow for this function as well?

getredhawkstudio

The file manager will let you do it, but it wont allow you to edit the pdf online, unless you are downloading the pdf and editing it in a desktop software.

Hi The demo version is not very clear for us. We are looking for a plugin that the members of a buddypress community can 1- Either send files PRIVATELY without other members being able to view it OR 2- Have a front end section where all members can upload their documents (word, PDF, excell, etc) AND put password for it. AND only members knowing that password can download that document Unfortunately in your demo we can not check that. Is that possible? Thank you

getredhawkstudio

Hi, You can restrict the pages where you put the filemanager shortcode with a password, the filemanager itself doesnt come with a password protection, only access restriction based on users or user groups. The filemanager can be used to share files and folders if two or more users have the same folder assigned to them. You cant directly send files to other users. This plugin may not be suitable for you if you are using it for social networking purposes.

The download button and shotcut right button also don’t working on Chrome version 40.0.2214.115 . The others navigator it’s Ok.

Same adjusts for that?

Default-user

Maybe, rewrite URL’s I think.

getredhawkstudio

Yeah that could be the problem, try using the same url rewrites on localhost too.

Default-user

Ok, thanks.

Question, I want to make 2 folder and let users access only 1 of them when I set the user, user A can access only folder A. They need only to download files. can I do this with this plugin

getredhawkstudio

Yes, this feature is implemented by default, all the users get their own folders, and cant access each others folder by default.

Hello, sorry to disturb. I’d like to hide some icons in the menu bar like cut, paste, duplicate, ecc… Could you give me some hints?

getredhawkstudio
You can edit the filemanager_string.php and in the initialization string you can edit the ui options like this:

I’m looking for a file sharing plugin to send and receive files from clients.

is it possible to create a folder where only one user can upload and download files?

Is it possible to receive an e-mail when someone uploads a file?

Best regards, Geert

getredhawkstudio

It is possible to a create a folder and allow only one user to upload and download files. You can also assign same folders to multiple users if they want to share files among each other. The email feature is unfortunately not available yet, we will soon add it in the coming updates.

Hi there. This is a pre-sales question. On my wordpress site, I am looking for a pluign that that allow users to register, then login, upload files to server, email notification to owner. Can you plugin do that? I also do not want folders to be shared or viewed by other users.

getredhawkstudio

Yes, the plugin allows all that, except for the email notification (coming soon).

Default-user

Can the user upload many files at once? These are non-technical users so it would need to be easy to use

Hey, Is possible to change default setting, so when activating plugin it will not automaticaly create personal folders for all users. I have al looooot of users so I do not want to automaticaly create tousents of personal folders. I know, there is plugin settings, but folders are already created when plugin is activated.

Best in advance, Klemen

getredhawkstudio

Yes, you can change this setting in the settings page of the file manager.
