Hi,

Whenever I try to access the file manager in wp-admin or on the website, I get a “Unable to connect to backend” or Server Unavailable Error. How can I fix this?

Hi,
I have replied to your email.

Hi, I have 2 questions for you? One I have set up your plugin and my site is now live and I noticed the other day that a user that has access to a file folder called association uploaded a file to the site. I received an email that the file was uploaded but when I went to look for the file it was not there. I used ftp to go tot he backend to look for the file and it was not there? Any ideas on this.

2nd question I set up a conditional menu so that when a user logs in he goes to the page with the files on it. What I want to know is what is the path of the file that has the logic that points the signed in user to redirect to the appropriate page. ex: if a user is a member of association he is being redirected to the association page and if he is a member of member he gets redirected to the member page. Does this make sense?

Hi,
About your first point, if a user has upload a file it must show up, unless he has deleted the file.
I am not sure what you want to know in your second question, but if you want to setup redirections based on user roles, you can use this plugin:
https://wordpress.org/plugins/redirect-role-wise/
Or this one:
https://wordpress.org/plugins/peters-login-redirect/

Here is a question for you: I have created a folder structure with say for example 10 folders. I also have created 2 groups, each only able to have access to certain folders in the above structure. What I need to know how to do is this: Is there a way to create a short code that allows a user from each of the two groups that I created to log in and only access the folders they have been assigned?

Hi,
Yes, this can be easily done in the filemanager plugin. You can assign any folder to any user group, or users. Then you can use this shortcode: [filemanager foldername=”*“] to show the users their own folders. Thats it.

Thank You!! that worked!!

I have a question about the capabilities of this plugin. I want to setup a web page with this file manager listed on the page. The file manager would point to a specific folder on Windows network share. The parent folder would have multiple sub-folders named with a date, ie. 07-17-17. Inside these folders would be PDF files. I want a user to use a tablet to go to this web page and tap the date folder they want and tap a PDF they wish to view. Does this seem feasible using this plug-in?

Hi,
Yes, you can do this with the filemanager plugin, but make sure the folder you are sharing is inside the wordpress installation somewhere. It wont work for external locations.

Hi, I am user of this plugin for a long time. Now I see, that with updates there is huge difference between user roles.

In the past was primary Wordpress role Subscriber set for User and Additional role was FolderUser-A. Role FolderUser-A was set to FolderUser-A Group. And FolderUser-A Group was set to specific folder. It worked fine.

But now I see, that Primary role must be FolderUser-A. Is there any way to avoid that setting?

Sometimes single User is part of different Folder Groups and if Primary Role is set to FolderUser-A, user can not access different Folders. I tried to set Role Affiliate to Subscriber for FolderUser Group, but it didn´t work.

I will appreciate if you could send me idea how to set this up.

With Kind regards, Beno

Hi,
I am not exactly sure what you mean, but you can assign any folder to any user role, or individual user. There is no restriction.
You can either generate a shortcode for the user roles, or you can just assign a folder to a user role and show all the folders assigned to the users in the front-end through this shortcode:
[filemanager foldername="*"]

HI! Our wordpress site is now out for beta testing, comments etc from the group paying for it and I had a question that I couldn’t find the answer for in the comments.

on the filemanager display, is it possible to not show the permissions (and perhaps the type column) column to allow the file name to spread out?

Hi,
Use the list view, and add this css in your theme:
.elfinder .elfinder-cwd table td { width: 100px; } .elfinder .elfinder-cwd table td:first-child { width: 400px; }

thanks for the quick answer, will give it a try!

Hi

Does this plugin support the uploading of entire folder elements at one time – either by copying a folder over or by unzipping? We have the need to use the folder structure for our site but also for HTML5 elearnings which are just a collection of html files stuffed in a folder per elearning.

Hi,
Yes, you can zip the files / folders and then upload and unzip back.

Hello, Great plugin except I am running into a weird issue: I have a queue of two files. One of them is slightly greater than 10mb and the second is less than 10mb. When I try to upload them both together, greater than 10mb file is successfully uploaded but the less than 10mb file is not uploaded. There are no errors that the plugin spits out. Could you please help?

P.S. Its not a server issue. I already increased my limits per your suggestion to others. I am able to upload the greater than 10mb file alone without any issues. If I have 10 files in the queue for upload with 9 of them less than 10mb and 1 greater 10mb, it skips uploading one file (sometimes even 2) in the queue right after the 10mb file and uploads all the rest successfully.

Hi,
Can you show this to me on your site. I’ll check it out.

Hello, I have recorded the steps (using steps recorder) and sent screenshots to you at your gmail account. Please let me know once you receive it.

Got your email, replied.

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

Is there another plugin that works with yours and would let me add custom fields and categories?

For every set of files uploaded, I need some information like Author, Upload date, version, categories and tags.

Do you know of another plugin that does this and works with your plugin?

thanks

Hi,
The files uploaded through the filemanager are not creating new posts, so you cant add custom fields to the files. You would have modify the filemanager in the front-end to make these fields. Its not an easy job though.

what’s mail?

I got your email. Replied.

Hello there, I’m keep getting this error: “Invalid backend configuration. Readable volumes not available.” Only when I use another user group for read/write permission. I have enabled the permission in the admin panel. Thanks /Daniel

Hi,
Can you email me the backend access, it must be some small mis-configuration.

How much does it cost you to program a group notification mail for us? We would like to see this soon. I like to hear from you

Sincerely,

Albert Kruize

Hi,
You can email me the details and we can discuss it there.

I just purchased your app and really like it. However, the reason I purchased it was to allow only those users with accounts to access pdf’s we have uploaded.

After creating a number of folders and uploading the pdf’s, I am able to access the files by copying and pasting the URL into another browser that is not logged into the site.

I apologize if this question has been answered before.

Hi,
You must be have assigned a folder with public access. You can restrict the direct access to that folder by adding an .htaccess in that folder with this text:
deny from all
More details here:
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/9282124/deny-direct-access-to-a-folder-and-file-by-htaccess
Also make sure you are not doing this directly inside wp-uploads folder, otherwise all your public data wont be accessible inside the theme.

Thanks for the help. We use WP Engine as our host and tech support had to go in and create a rule so that any file urls in my “protected” directory are subject to .htaccess rules

My notifications are not being sent to my email.

Hi,
You have to configure the notification from the settings page of wordpress. Also notification only works for the default folders, it doesnt work for the regular folders.

Hi,

I recently bought advance file manager 5 .I would like ask, how do I implement user file activity log? We need to have users files access log to monitor users. Do you have any workaround or plugin to achieve this.

Thanks

Gogul.S

Hi,
You’d have to modify the plugin to keep the log. Its not built into it.
