Does the create shortcode not work on mobile devices? I’m using an iPad and that button does nothing after selecting options for my gallery?
I am not aware of any issues with the Shortcode Builder and mobile devices, but I will gladly take a closer look at the issue you are encountering. Could you perhaps create a support ticket for this?

Hi… Can you select which dropbox folders to show/make available?
The plugin will link to your complete Dropbox account, but you can select for each shortcode which folder should be used a starting folder. The users will not be able to navigate outside that folder. E.g. the folder shown in the File Browser demo is actually one of the subfolders on the Dropbox account.
I hope this answers your question!
The plugin was purchased by my client – if you need the license number, I will be happy to provide.
I connected my Dropbox and added the shortcode to a page, but no folders are showing on the page. Can you help? I’m not sure what I did wrong or what I’m missing.
My apologies for the late response but due to my holiday I wasn’t able to respond earlier.
If you are still encountering problems with the plugin, could you perhaps create a support ticket so I can take a closer look at it?
I am currently on vacation until 7th of April 2019, which means that it can take a little bit longer to receive the support you are looking for. My apologies for the inconvenience, but I will definitely follow up as soon as possible. If you have a question in the mean time, please take a look below.
PRESALE QUESTION – Hi, I’m just about to purchase this but my most important question : Does it support tagging when hosting images in dropbox. So display tags above as filters for example for easy search on website. Cheers
Unfortunately, the Out-of-the-Box plugin isn’t able to filter by tags as the Dropbox API doesn’t support tags meta data.
Dear Floris, i have a PRESALE QUESTION. We’d like to use your Plugin as a way out WooCommerce Customers upload large files to our Dropbox. When using Plugins like GravityForms, we are bound to our servers upload limit. Does your Plugin directly upload to Dropbox or does the Upload go trough our server first?
The Dropbox version indeed allows direct upload for files < 300MB. Direct uploads for larger files isn’t yet supported by Dropbox.
If it is an option for you to use a different cloud service, the Google Drive version or the Onedrive/Sharepoint version of the plugin does support direct upload for all files.
Hi, I saw some older comments regarding this and was wondering if there has been an update; I would like to be able to give different users access to specific folders based on roles. So for instance if 1 folder contains folders A, B, C, and D, one user can see all of it, but another user can only see A and D but not the others. Is this possible?
Thanks for your question! In the Dropbox version of the plugin this is only possible by using multiple Shortcodes. You basically create a shortcode for each User Role and hide the specific folders in the configuration of this shortcode.
I hope this answers your question. If not, just let me know!
Do you have to go into the plugin and refresh the file list when you upload new videos? It doesn’t seem to update when I add new videos.
The plugin has a cache of around 15-30 minutes to increase the loading performance and reduce the number of API calls required. To force the plugin to check for new updates immediately you can indeed press the refresh button in the File Browser.
Perfect! Typical customer, just too impatient.
Thanks for the updates…Keep up the great work!!!
Thanks for your feedback!
Hi Author, i want to use it to share Dropbox with customers. So do they need to login to use it? I want it to be on the font-end of site. Anyone can uploadd or only those who enter the email address? If possilbe, can you show me a site using this plugin. Thanks
The plugin can indeed be used to share your Dropbox account with your WordPress user. The users don’t need to have their own Dropbox account and the plugin will make sure that the files on your site are always in sync.
You can set who should be able to use the Upload Box and to which folder the uploads should be send. Your users don’t need to enter any data to upload the files directly to Dropbox, but if needed you can use the Gravity Form or Contact Form 7 of the plugin to obtain this kind of data.
You can see a demo on the plugin website: Demo File Browser, Demo Upload Box.
I hope this answers your questions.
Thanks Floris, i will buy it as soon as i finish setting up my website
Hi Floris, i have one question before i buy it. when the customers uploads, those files are only located in Dropbox or it will also be uploaded to my hosting.
After they exiting my site, if they want to review the files ‘ve uploaded before. Is it available?
Thank for your support

The files will only be uploaded to Dropbox and will not be stored on your hosting. I am not sure if I understand the second question, but if needed you can give each users their ‘own’ folder on your Dropbox where they can review and (with the right permissions) manage their uploaded files.
Hi Floris, i just bought it, if i need help form you, i will contact you later
Hi Floris, hope you doing well! I don’t know what is going on but when out of the box is activated and when just 1 user try to load page with only few photos “Entry Processes, Physical Memory Usage, I/O Usage” went to the sky at 100%.
Sorry to hear that you are having issues! Feel free to create a support ticket about this problem and I will happily look into it!
Hello, i have a presale question. Im building a website with 2 different pages that should hold 2 different folders with pdf files. Is this plugin the correct way to go? I have a membership site where on page will show documentation for our services wich will be uploaded to one folder on dropbox and then the other page will show release notes for said services in pdf formar from another folder in dropbox. Is this possible to do? Thank you for any answer, kind regards.
Yes, that is perfectly possible with the plugin! You can simply add a Out-of-the-Box File Browser to your pages and point each of them to the right folder on your Dropbox. The plugin will make sure that the PDF files will automatically show up and can be viewed.
Please note that you will need an ‘Extended’ license if your users are charged to see the documents via the plugin.
Thank you for your quick answer, perfect. One additional question, if i make let’s say the documentation page show the documentation folder on dropbox, that page will only be restricted to the documentation folder on dropbox right? i read some comments before that the user cannot navigate outside of the folder i chose, is this correct? thanks again
Indeed. The folder which you select will be the ‘root’ for the File Browser. The user will not be able to navigate outside that folder.
Great, thanks for your fast responses and help. The plugin seems to fit my needs exactly.
Sorry for asking alot of questions, but i need the answer to one final. Is the shortcode builder working with Elementor page builder?
The plugin doesn’t integrate into any 3rd party custom Page Builder, but if it contains a MCE editor for text blocks, the Shortcode Generator of Out-of-the-Box will appear there as well. Otherwise, you will need to fallback to the standalone Shortcode Builder that is accessible via the Out-of-the-Box menu to create the shortcode you need. You can than copy-paste this shortcode in a text block of your Page Builder.
Bought the plugin and it was such an easy setup and configuration that i got it working withing 5 minutes. Just one more question now, the backround behind the media, is there any way to make it “clear” so it adapts to the background of the page?
I am not sure if I understand the question completely, but you can change colors of the plugin via the ‘Layout’ tab -> ‘Color Palette’ which you will find on the main plugin settings page. You can change the ‘Content Background Color’ so it matches your site. It should also be possible to just use ‘transparent’ in this color selection.
Sorry for my vague description. What i mean is that a pdf file has a white box background, but the entire shortcode puts out a square box with all the contents which has a light grey ish color that makes it stand out from my white background on my page, i already have my content boxed so in short it makes it look like a box within a box. I’ve tried changing the content background to clear and white without any progress.
In the demo for the plugin you can see that the file browser puts out a box within the white content area already there. So all i want to know if that is possible to remove that color and replace it with white? thank you
Feel free to create a support ticket and provide an URL to your page so I can help you out!
I sent a ticket with an attached picture, hope it gives you a better idea of what im trying to achieve.
Hello again, i just have one question this time, is it possible to change the color of the folders from the regular blue to something else? Kind regards
The folder thumbnails are part of an icon set. You can create your own icon set and change the e.g. the color of the thumbnails. You can set the location of your icon set you want to use via the main plugin settings page on the ‘Layout’ -> ‘Icons’ tab.
BTW, it might be possible that you have clear the cache of the plugin once you have set a different icon set. You can do this via the ‘Need Help?’ tab -> ‘Reset Cache’ button
It’s not clear by the demo how many folders you can see at once. If in dropbox we have 20 high level folders, will we see 20 folders at once?
You can indeed see all the folders in the selected folder at once. If needed you can set the height of the File Browser container to limit the amount of folders which are directly visible.
While viewing the video, press the right mouse button, The video is downloaded.
Can you make it un-downloadable?
BTW, the Video Player mode will already remove most of the download possibilities.
Is there any way I can hide the “date” column in the List view?
Sure, you can just disable this in the configuration of the shortcode. In the Shortcode Builder, navigate to the Layout tab and look for the ‘Show last modified date’ setting. When you disable this, the date column will be hidden.
Ignore this! I discovered I had to switch “ON” column names – then switch “OFF” Show date – then switch “OFF” column names again!
I have to say that I love your plugin, so far it does exactly what I want Now for some extra features : 1/ A mode when I can send email to a role rather than to users when a folder is updated (adding files, deleting files, etc.). 2/ A “delete a file or a folder” after a period of time. Of, if you want to avoid issues with clumsy users, a way to “hide” files and folders after a certain period of time. The idea is to only let users access to the last 12 months of files.Thanks for your feedback
Thanks for your feedback! I really appreciate that.
What you are looking for is possible by just hooking into the filters/actions of the plugin itself.
Adding this code to the (child!) theme functions.php file will do the trick.
I hope that helps!
Floris, I am speechless. Where can I add a sixth star to the 5 I already gave to your plugin? Thanks A LOT. Now I am going to test
Hello! Pre-purchase inquiry.
1. I want users to be able to upload large files to my cloud (up to 2GB).
2. That the files arrive in separate folders. Example: If someone sends 5 photos and then another person sends 15 more, I do not want them all to arrive mixed.
3. Can the texts of the buttons be translated into Spanish?
4. Can an email arrive saying that new files were uploaded? Example: “Jonh Smith uploaded 10 files to your cloud” and a link to that folder.
5. Finally, seeing all these points, do you recommend the Plugin for Dropbox, Onedrive or Google Drive? I currently use Dropbox plus, but I can change. In the comparison, I see that Dropbox does not have “Thumbnail View”, “Direct Upload (bypassing server limits)” ... And I do not know which “Usage Limits” is better among those 3 clouds.
Thanks and sorry for so many questions, but I’m already buying 3 plugins that did not work for me.
Thanks for your questions! Let me try to answer them:
I hope this answers your questions. If you have any questions remaining, just let me know!
Thanks Floris for the quick answers. You just won a client.
I want to buy this wordpress plugin.
But I have a question.
You can limit access only to users to see from Dropbox with pictures?
I want to display an image in the startup image and when to click on it, redirect the user to the dropbox to see all the images. Access to the dropbox is for registered users only.
Yes, you can hide Out-of-the-Box for users that are not logged into your website. To achieve what you are looking for, you probable need to embed a single Image with a link to a page with contains an Out-of-the-Box Gallery shortcode.
Please note that, the plugin itself doesn’t have any User Management Tools on-board which you can use to allow your users to register/login/redirect to access the content. However, the plugin integrates into the default WordPress User System, so you can use one of the many user management plugin available that are specifically dedicated to this functionality to build the login flow you need.
There are quite some User Management plugins out there, so it is hard to give a specific recommendation. For Premium plugins you could search on this platform, e.g. I recently used User Profiles Made Easy in one of my projects, but I am not sure if that fits your requirements. Of course, there are also free plugins available via https://wordpress.org/plugins/search/ user /
After you have installed a User Management plugin you use it to restrict user access to (e.g.) the portal page with the Out-of-the-Box shortcode so that only registered users can enter that page.
I hope that answers your question!
