Adds a powerful download manager including file categories, downloads counter, widgets, sorted file lists and more to your WordPress blog.
This feature is called File Browser. Go to WP-Filebase settings and click on the tab 'File Browser'. There you can select a post or page where the tree view shoud appear.
In the post editor click on the WP-Filebase button. In the appearing box click on File list, then select a category. Optionally you can select a custom template.
To list all categories and files on your blog, create an empty page (e.g named Downloads). Then goto WP-Filebase Settings and select it in the post browser for the option Post ID of the file browser. Now a file browser should be appended to the content of the page.
Upload all files you want to add to the WP-Filebase upload directory (default is
wp-content/uploads/filebase) with your FTP client. Then goto WP-Admin -> Tools -> WP-Filebase and click Sync Filebase. All your uploaded files are added to the database now. Categories are created automatically if files are in sub folders.
You can change the HTML template under WP-Filebase -> Settings. To edit the stylesheet goto WP-Admin -> Tools -> WP-Filebase and click Edit Stylesheet. Since Version 0.1.2.0 you can create your custom templates for individual file lists. You can manage the templates under WP-Admin -> Tools -> WP-Filebase -> Manage templates. When adding a tag to a post/page you can now select the template.
WP-Filebase uses WordPress' default file type icons in
wp-includes/images/crystal for files without a thumbnail. To use custom icons copy the icon files in PNG format named like
wp-content/images/fileicons (you have to create that folder first).
Goto WP-Filebase Settings and disable Permalinks under "Download". Try to disable other plugins. Disable WP_CACHE. Enable WP_DEBUG to get more info about possible errors.
