CYSTEME Finder, the admin files explorer

Description

IMPORTANT : a security hole has been found in all versions prior to 2.0. It is very important for your web site security to updrade to 2.0 at least. We are sorry for the troubles, but that plugin is free, and free means we cannot pay our programmers to give it a high priority maintenance level. That’s why WordPress team has decided to block it from download these past 3 months, and we totally agree with this decision. Our team has finally solved that security hole and the plugin is now fully functional since 2.0

What about CYSTEME Finder ?

A feature-rich WordPress site management is not accessible to everyone, and developers always need other additional tools to manage files manually. And to do so they always use in addition a tool such FileZilla, WinSCP or another to upload, create or modify PHP or other files on their own installation.

The CYSTEME Finder plugin is a powerful file explorer, user-friendly file management in the administration interface. You install the extension as usual, and then in the Settings menu will appear CYSTEME Finder. Simply click it to access and manage all the files on your WordPress site. This is limited to admin users. Once installed, you’ll never need additionnal FTP software to upload/edit/download any files from your WordPress site. Simply explore your existing directories, and drag/drop files from your computer.

  • View lists or icons, with thumbnail display and sorting
  • Drag and drop internal to move files with the mouse
  • Drag and drop external to copy a file from your Windows desktop to anywhere!
  • Copy, paste, delete, rename, duplicate files
  • Editing text files, php …

CYSTEME Finder is multilingual, automatically switched to WordPress installation language.

Thanks to the great team Studio 42 that first develop elfinder, which CYSTEME Finder is totally based on.

A pro version is available for only 5€, order at http://cysteme.fr/cysteme_finder

That pro version will add cloud capabilities to your WordPress website, you’ll be able to have your own cloud files online within your WordPress site, offerring a really powerful files management to your WP users, customers, partners ..

  • file space for users. Each user has its own file space to manage his files
  • virtual file space via shortcode. Each post or page can have its own file space
  • multiple share spaces via shortcode, handling read or read-write access to specified users, public shares, for example [cysteme_finder share=”Share Name|sharedir|john=rw,luke=rw,default=r”]
  • file and icon views have been completely remade, icons are bigger, file list more readable (bigger too), all functions improved
  • admin users will have access to all users file space
  • automatic notifications via log file and/or email

If you have ideas for improvements, please let us know instead of tinkering in your corner. While nothing prohibits you, the fact of change yourself this extension would force you to see your changes in future updates of the plugin.
If you like CYSTEME Finder, please contact us if you wish any specific add-on.

This plugin has been based upon our online file manager, demo at http://finder.cysteme.fr. That very useful tool can be integrated in any other web software, authentication and shares can be completely customised according to existing software.

Installation

As usual, just upload the zip file from admin panel/plugins.
Or unzip it manually into wp-content/plugins.
Refresh your browser and enjoy CYSTEME Finder under Settings menu.

FAQ

Uploading a folder (and its subfolder) is not as easy as uploading one or many files.
You can upload many files in one shot, but not a folder.
To upload a folder, first zip it, then drag’drop it in CYSTEME Finder, then extract the zip file, that works fine..;)

Reviews

Modifies core css with its own

After loading the plugin up i found that text spacing and the body element has been modified by its cysteme-finder/css/finder.css file like so

body {
    height: 100%;
    margin: 10px;
}

It even shows in the official thumbnail picture for the plugin that the sidebar is being pushed over on the admin page.

Hands-down better than any other file manager

I SEARCHED for a good file manager for WordPress.
Most are terrible. I wanted an AJAX, drag-and drop interface for greatest ease of use.

I found two, this one “CYSTEME Finder” and one other “File Manager”, and that’s it.

Both have a similar interface, possibly built on the same AJAX library, but Finder has far more features in the free version than the other.

I was actually surprised that “File Manager” crippled their plugin by disabling multiple file selection and drag-n-drop. That was a deal breaker right there.

CYSTEME Finder has all the basic features you need, and much more in their FREE version. And if you want some slick, useful features, the Pro version is only (approx.) $20 USD. (Whereas File Manager’s Pro version is $49 and all you get is the missing functionality in Finder. Tsk, tsk, tsk.)

You do the math, but this file management plugin is the first and only choice you should make if you manage multiple custom folders via the admin and backend of WP.

Seriously.

This plugins made me lazy

Now I dont need filezila.

It should have build in multisite privilege setting to control users with access to this plugin. Otherwise we need to install other security plugin / admin privilege management.

Just what I was looking for.

I was sick and tired of the bullsh*t FTP problems with my host, this allows me to add/delete/modify files right from the WordPress’ Dashboard, thank you so much for making this plugin.

Très bon plugin…

Manager de fichiers en français
(mieux que file manager, wp-filemanager)
couteau suisse qui permet de tout faire à partir de l’admin…
upload, download, édition, zip etc…
la version pro est plus complète

bravo à l’équipe en Alsace, hopla
