I noticed you have new accessibility for dropbox cloud and google docs. How do you set up that short code? Do i have to install another plugin?

It lets you view documents through google docs, you dont have to install any other plugin, just update to the new filemanager and this feature will be available to you.

You can contextualize access to folders when they are assigned to individual users, but can you contextualize access based on the logged in user’s security group?

Yes, if you are using security groups to restrict page access, you can just use the filemanager shortcode on that page, then only the users who have access to that page will be able to view it.

Hi there.

Is there anyway to test this plug-in or do I need to buy it right away? I’m not sure yet, if it suits our needs.

Kind Regards Franziska

What are your needs exactly, I’ll let you know if it can work for you.

Hello. Thank you for your reply. We need a very simple up- and download tool for our intranet. Every user needs to be able to up- and download files. to delete them or overwrite. Every one needs to have access to the same files. And it should be possible to put them into folders (folder can be made in backend). Maybe you can send me a link to a simple page, where I can see the plug-in in use?

Many thanks. Franziska

All of this can easily be done by the filemanager. Here is the demo where you can see it in action (upload/editing is disabled in the demo).:
Here are the documentations:
Let me know if you need help setting it up.

I really need multiple role support as well. I need to contextualize access based on users who serve multiple roles in the organization and can have read or read/write access to different folders based on more than one role. I thought this was supported.

You can give users access based on their roles, and when you need some users to have access to more folders, then you can assign them folders directly from the users access page.
Can you explain to me the exact scenario of how you want to assign users the access.

I’ve been doing that, but many users and very extensive extra work. Users may serve on 3 or 4 sub-committees with different variations of multiple folder access. A lot of extra keying.

Yeah I have made the plugin to handle complicated scenarios but with too much complicated user permissions you have to do some custom user permissions.

Hi, I just bought the Advanced File Manager 7.0 from envato. It does exactly what I needed of it, except for one thing.

I am using it to manage song lists for a band. So the lists are in separate folders. The concept is to move songs from one folder to another. You plugin handles this very well. Except that it does not appear to update the WP Media Manager, and so my media player is not able to load the Title and artist info.

After i cut and past a file from one folder to another, if I check the file in the Media manager, the file location is not changed. However the file is clearly in the new folder.

Any thoughts on this?

Yeah you can email me through my profile link here, you’ll find the email section in the right sidebar.

Didi you get my login info earlier?

No, can you try again.

Hello, do you know of an easy way to sort the users in the backend alphabetically?

Thank you.

If you need that, you can email me the backend access, I can change the sorting order for you.

Alright, I have submitted it thought the email section on your profile.

Thank you.

I replied to your email, check your spam if you didnt get my email.

Hi, there.

Right after activating the plugin I get this warning:

“The plugin generated 5372 characters of unexpected output during activation. If you notice “headers already sent” messages, problems with syndication feeds or other issues, try deactivating or removing this plugin.”

Later when I access the setting pages I get this on top:

“Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /var/www/vhosts/ on line 44 Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /var/www/vhosts/ on line 46 Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /var/www/vhosts/ on line 44 Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /var/www/vhosts/ on line 46 Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in … “

Dozens of times… but everything seems to work well apart from this annoying output.


It must be some kind of conflict with the theme, the plugin will work properly even if you see this error at activation.

Yes, it works. Probably I’ll change the theme. Currently I’m just developing. Thanks, anyway.

I’d like to show a conditional link to the file manager should the user have permissions for a specific folder. I.E. The user has permissions for folder A, and would see a link to the file manger, but not if they have permissions for folder B.


<if permissions for folder A> <show link to file manager / > <else> < show nothing /> < end if>

Is something like this possible??

The conditional links work for user groups like subscribers, administrators, editors or any custom roles you want to add.
The other way is to assign folder to users you want and not for others, the filemanager will show up for both but the user without the permission will see an error message saying they dont have access to this folder.

This plugin gives a js error: NS_ERROR_FILE_CORRUPTED: It does not show anything

This apparently is a firefox bug where sometimes the sqlite file is corrupted, it has nothing to do with the plugin, details here:
You can look this up in google for fixes.


I was just wondering if this file manager will allow me to upload .rvt and .rfa files to wordpress.

These are autodesk files, which I want to host and have gated using the email before download plugin. Thanks. Leearna

Yes the filemanager will let you upload any file format, there are no restrictions.

Good day,

I am considering purchasing your plugin for wordpress, I have the following questions:

1. Will it work with paid membership pro? In other words I want users to pay for a membership prior to being able to use the plugin on my site. 2. Is there a way to create a form to go along with an upload? For example if someone wants to upload a picture of their cellphone but wants to add details like make, model etc along with the upload, will it be possible?

Many thanks, I look forward to your reply.

Best regards, Ela

You can use the filemanager using a shortcode to display at the front-end so it works with paid membership pro plugin, you just need to secure the page with paid memebership pro.
Th filemanager is standalone, the forms wont work with it.

Hi, Is there any way to change the default sort for individual shortcodes, ie with sort=”desc” or something? Drag and drop ordering would be great but obviously isn’t a feature. Thanks

You need to modify the filemanager_string.php file inside the filemanager plugin folder, you can add sort and sortDirect to set sort type and sort direction (asc, desc). More details here:
