Reviews

Free version works perfectly for me

I am delighted with the free version of this plugin.

I have successfully tested it on sites built with raw WordPress, Genesis and Divi. There have been no compatibility problems with any of a wide range of other plugins I have used including Gravity Forms, WPML multi-language, Updraft Plus Pro backup/restore.

I have installed it on more than 20 production sites running on a variety of hosting platforms and it performs perfectly in all instances.

I have not tested the Pro version but, as with all free software, I’m grateful to the author for building, supplying and maintaining a free version for the benefit of the WordPress community.

Garbage

This plugin is a piece of garbage and not worth any of your time. save yourself money and time. i could not get this to work for the life of me. support takes ages to reply. i purchased this for the feature of everyone having their own folders, seems like it breaks the plugin and support said to disable this. then whats the point of offering this.

Can’t get ahold of support

I used the File Manager version of the app and all worked fine. I then upgraded to the File Manager Pro. Very quickly I ran into a problem where the WP dashboard slowed almost to a stop (minutes for responses). My Service provider determined that exception errors were being thrown. I deactivated the Pro version and everything went back to normal. I realize this may not be the fault of this plug-in but may be a collision with another that is at fault. But I wanted to start with this plug-in.

As part of my purchase of Pro, I had several month of free support. So I tried contacting the author thru their support link, and via several email addresses they have on their site. I sent emails multiple times. I never got a response.

This was further complicated by the fact when I purchased Pro I was supposed to have gotten an account and login credentials – I didn’t – so I couldn’t even get into some of the support features.

As a result of this very poor support (nonexistent) and the fact the Pro version I paid for doesn’t work, I have to give a very poor rating.
