File Away



Excellent work

Once you’ve got your head around the basics this is an easy to use file repository plugin. Code appears to be clean and it loads fast. Really good job on this, thank you.


Apart from minor bugs related to compatibility with other plugins, this is a gem! Please continue development!

Awesome but how to?

how can i display the file extensions at the end of the file name?
for example Filename.pdf or Filename.JEF


File Away issue with IIS (Windows server 2012)

I have file away on a wordpress site installed on a windows server using iis. File away originally was working for me after removing stripslashes line 1063-1064, and also Line 1101 and then deleteing 1086.

But all of a sudden it stopped working, i can no longer upload files from File away front end. I need help resolving this asap.


Please update!

Great plugin and certainly the best of it’s kind for managing front-end uploads/downloads and file lists. I disagree with some of the negative reviews, there’s nothing wrong with the amount of settings or complexity unless you have a feeble mind ;).

The animation after saving changes is a little long (but you don’t have to wait for it to finish to save changes).

The only thing stopping this from being a 5 star review is that I’ve built it into a clients site (as of June 2017) and the plugin hasn’t been updated in 2 years – just hoping an update comes soon or compatibility remains stable for the foreseeable future.
