Hi, I see that it’s possible to block the creation of folder for each user. What is the next step after the update because the files have changed? Here the old comment : 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);

Thanks ;-)

In the new version 5.x, you can edit “Filemanager.php” and comment the line 190: mkdir($newdir, 0777); to : mkdir($newdir, 0777);
and change line 198 : if( sizeof($results) == 0 ){ to: if( sizeof($results) == -1 ){ and change line 280: add_action('user_register', 'filemanager5_registration_save'); to: to: //add_action('user_register', 'filemanager5_registration_save');

This plugin does not seem to work with WP 3.9.1 even though it says it does. I installed on an older version of WP and it worked perfectly. Is there some way to make it work on 3.9.1?

getredhawkstudio

It should be working, what error do you get. Also you have to extract the zip first, then you get the plugin and a documentations folder.

Hi there!

I’ve created some folders within wp-content/uploads/foo, now I’d like to change all the subfolders within /foo to wp-content/foo. Is this possible without to recreate all the folders and upload again all the documents?

getredhawkstudio

You can just move the folders to the later path.

Default-user

The problem I encounter is, that the sub folders are created with another privilege, as I don’t have the rights to move the folders via FTP.

getredhawkstudio
You can change the previlages by editing filemanager.php file and on line 198, you can use any permission: mkdir($newdir, 0777);
Default-user

Thanks for the reply, I think my problem has to do with the owner, as the plugin is running under another user. As other folders created by wordpress I can move without problems via the FTP client

getredhawkstudio

Yes, that could be it.

Hi, I’m trying to upload files to my file manager but I receive this message “unable to upload”.

I can create folders, see files and download but not upload.

Could you help me?

Thanks.

getredhawkstudio

You have to have write permission to that folder to allow the filemanager to upload files.

Pre-sale question:

Is there a way to add custom user groups and set specific files and folders permission to them. Instead of using the default WP user groups could I use another plugin that adds custom user groups and would this plugin recognize those user groups and allow me to set permissions?

Also, would this plugin work well with a MultiSite WP install? I have 55 sub-sites each with 1 user, so if I add all 55 users to one site and set their permissions for this plugin from that 1 site they could all access the files right? Would I also be able to display the file browser in an iframe on the 55 sub-sites dashboards? I’m thinking if the user is logged into their site, they are also logged into the site that has all 55 users and the files/permission setup at the same time, so they would have access to the file manager via a dashboard iframe.

getredhawkstudio

The custom groups should work fine, I have not however tested it with any group plugins, you could give it a try with a pirated version. In MU, If you give access to a user in one site and then if you use the same username in another site, the plugin will work. The same goes for group access, If you give a folder to a user group (subscriber, editor, admin etc). Then all the users in that user group would be able to access that folder. Similarly you could use “everyone” access in the shortcode to allow everyone to access a folder (even the non-logged-in ones).

for sending large files, after some time, a connection error appears. Will has a maximum file size? if yes, can we increase the size ?   thank you for your reply

getredhawkstudio

The max file size set in the filemanager is 9GB, you can edit the plugin to change that. You can change that in folder php > connector.php line 7

I just tried to uppload a 150MB file, and once completed, I have a Blob file 50Mb instead ??

getredhawkstudio
Server may timeout sometimes when you upload large files. Try this in your plugin > php > connector.php, and at line 5 write this: set_time_limit(9999);
Default-user
y0an Purchased

always the same, upload a 80Mb file and create a .BLOB file 63MB instead…

getredhawkstudio

You should talk to your server provider and ask them about the file size limits. The file manager wont restrict your upload file sizes.

Hi, getredhawkstudio. Pre purchuase question. I need to know if this plugin produces an activity feed. Every time an user modify, remove, edit, download, upload a file the action is recorded. And you can always go to activity tab and see what people have done. Many Thanks!

getredhawkstudio
Nope, it doesnt keep track of the file activity, however if you know php, you could easily do it, here is an example of files activity log on elfinder:

When I click File Manager>Users then select the folder for my user account (admin) then try to add a folder by clicking the “Add Folder” button nothing happens. Same thing when trying to add a folder to a user group. I tried a few different folders in my file structure and I tried logging in/out but I still can’t add folders to users/groups.

Additionally, trying to add shortcodes doesn’t do anything either

getredhawkstudio

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

I want to add the filemanager into the WordPress editor so if I want to add an image or anything into the post I could just call it from within the editor. How can I do it? You said 2 years ago that “We can do that, stay tuned for next releases.”.

getredhawkstudio

We have made the filemanager so it would synchronize any images you upload to it into the wordpress media manager, so everytime you upload an image through the filemanager you would be able to see it in the media manager. However the filemanager doesnt show up in the wordpress post editor.

Default-user

So filemanager is not integrated within the wp editor is that? Because it would be a huge bonus, really.

getredhawkstudio

I am afraid not, the filemanager works independently.

I found that filemanager is not synchronizing images that I have moved into another folder so that when I go in to Media Library they are in the older url. How can I solve this? I have wp 3.9.1.

getredhawkstudio

Go to Filemanager settings submenu and make sure “Sync With Media Manager” is enabled (the latest version of the plugin).

Default-user

It is enabled. But not working.

getredhawkstudio

Oh so you moved the images, the plugin will sync when you upload an image, you can upload those images again using the filemanager, they will sync again, moving the images will get them out of sync with media manager.

Hi,

Does this plugin work with Layer slider please?

Many file managers work with posts, just not sliders etc…

Thanks,

Ian

getredhawkstudio

You want to add filemanager into a slider? If the slider supports shortcodes then yes it should work.

Hi. I got this working on my local computer but now I am having trouble getting it working on my server. Everything is showing up except for the file manager tab. This is blank. Can you think of any server settings I should check to make it show up? Thanks.

Default-user

My site is https:// throughout. Is that a problem for this plugin?

Default-user

Got it working. Is it possible to change your code from things such as ””http://ajax.googleapis.com/” to simply ”//ajax.googleapis.com/” so it’ll work out of the box with https? Thanks!

getredhawkstudio

Yes, you can do it, edit the filemanager_string.php, you’ll find the external urls there. Thanks for reminding me of this :)
