Pre purchase question. Why isn’t the pro version available on codecanyon? It looks like the basic version here isn’t responsive.

Thanks

alcalbg

Hi,

Yes, the PRO version with responsive interface is only available at FileGator web site http://www.file-gator.com/ and the regular license costs $25

Both versions share the same platform but the PRO version has additional layout designed for mobile devices.

I will reconsider keeping this version on CodeCanyon in the future due to high commission rate and other restrictions.

Hi,

I will request url to be removed from your comment above for safety reasons.

Please send me your FTP credentials so I can look into this. You can do that via contact form on my profile page: http://codecanyon.net/user/alcalbg

I suspect that you have some session problems but I must look into the code first.

thanks, i went to edit it to remove the url and its been reviewed, i appreciate your help.

Hi,

Yes, this was a php session problem.

Your server is configured to store sessions data inside cgi-bin/tmp/ folder but that folder was missing. After I recreated it everything started to work.

Please check with your system admin or hosting company for more details about this.

I have a question, on this script, in the admin panel, can you add a option for a user to buy more space to upload, or what.. We never really got to see what’s inside the admin panel :P

Default-user

do i also have permission to use this ‘filegator’ logo?

alcalbg

Hi,

Available features are listed on the main page – option to manage or buy more space is not among them.

You can see the admin panel on the first screenshot: http://codecanyon.net/theme_previews/3041013-filegator?index=0&url_name=filegator

Yes, you can use that logo with the script.

Best,

I have a few questions regarding this script. #1 – Can you make a update in this admin panel editing users upload limit. #2 – I had trouble a few times uploading the SQL file, suggest making it more understandable for non-computer freaks :) #3 – Can I make a custom php page, connecting with the users account, allowing them to upgrade their upload limit? #4 – Suggest making a option in admin to set the upload limit, less hastle to edit in the files :)

A pre-purchase question (i’m not so much familiar with server-side scripting, but i’m trying to look up) : can i effectively use your product as a FTP management program ?

alcalbg

Hi,

FileGator does not use FTP protocol (this script is not a FTP program) but the basic file management principles are the same.

hi,

the search box only seems to include files from currently viewed folder… so it doesn’t really do the job – can it be changed, so all matching files from the entire directory are listed?

thanks,

igor

alcalbg

Hi,

There is also a tree-view search box, try that one.

ok, that will have to do – thanks… also, i only use filegator for images – is there an easy way to have pre-cached thumbnails, so people don’t have to click the ‘preview’ icon?

For anyone concerned, I bought the PRO version and it works great. I had a couple questions and got useful answers within a day – support for this script is OUTSTANDING. One observation; if you want to locate your files outside Document Root consider using symlinks. At least on Bluehost that was the only choice. I heartily recommend this script to anyone.. the PRO version is well worth the extra cost if you need mobile compatibility.

Is this script suitable for the following purpose: I wish a module that can be uploaded with a client website to enable me to have a backdoor to delete all content (possibly including the module) if they do not pay. This would be for clients who have their own webspace and allow me access to place a website online but then lock me out, this has happened before once and I wish to guard against this.

alcalbg

Hi,

Yes, I suppose you could use it like this.

Awesome script! Saved so much time writing my own file manager. Just bought it and it’s fantastic :)

Is it possible to use YOURLS instead of Google URL Shortener? My main goal is to keep this all private and in house. Self-hosted short URLs would be a great feature.

alcalbg

Hi,

Probably, but you will have to customize the code.

Hi. I want encrypt filename cause the user share the link and all people can download the file without register….

How can i protect my files?

alcalbg

Hi,

If you want to hide files completely you can still do that by setting repository folder outside public_html (on location not accessible via web). As an alternative you can edit .htaccess file inside repository folder and put “Deny from All” there which will block all direct file access. If you do this, users can only use download button inside filegator to download files, email and direct links will have to be disabled in this case as well as sharing (configuration.php)

Hello alcalbg!

Again, as always, loving your work and product. One of my users noticed today that if they create a new file inside the repository (html) when they enter quotation marks, it puts a backslash into the coding that doesn’t allow it to work. Any clue on why it does this? Uploading normal html files or editing them outside of the repository works fine.

Thanks in advance! - Rob

Hi,

You probably have magic quotes enabled on your server. This is a depreciated php feature and has to be disabled. If you cannot disable it in your control panel you can try adding this code to index.php file:

if (get_magic_quotes_gpc()) {
    function magicQuotes_awStripslashes(&$value, $key) {$value = stripslashes($value);}
    $gpc = array(&$_GET, &$_POST, &$_COOKIE, &$_REQUEST);
    array_walk_recursive($gpc, 'magicQuotes_awStripslashes');
}

Best,
Milos

Awesome, I could have sworn it was disabled on the server, but will look into that. Thank you!
