Simple and Effective way to upload and display PDF documents by category

I wanted a replacement for wp-filebase. I just needed something to upload PDF documents, assign a category, and then display some or all of the documents in a category on my pages in either alphabetical or date order and this plugin fits the bill perfectly. Looked at various other solutions but found them to be much too complex for my requirements

Excellent Plugin . . . works as advertised

This is a great plugin, and the best way I’ve found to manage PDF files. I’ve shelled out for the paid version, and the ability to do mass uploads is very helpful. I highly recommend this plugin, if you need to manage PDF files on your WP website.

Good way to organize PDF files

BSK PDF Manager was the best solution I found to presenting PDF files in lists, as drop-down selections, and to present the most recent materials on the home page. I have several clients who need a way to organize large lists of PDF documents – such as meeting materials and agendas – and this plugin has been a great help.
