I don't recommend this plugin, at the beginning it was working but after my session ended, I login again, and I get back to my media, the whole media library was messy. This was due to some CSS/JS files not loaded. Even after disabling the plugin, I couldn't get back some of my media. This plugin is also not free at all, once you created your 10 (!) folders, you need to pay to get anything else and you're quite stuck with their plugin as you can get your media back!

I rarely sent a feedback on plugin but this one really annoying me. It is obvious that the plugin is not tested a lot, after installing it, broke totally my website (launching WordPress troubleshooting tool). After that, I manage to see it works only with certain Apache modules but slow down a looooot my WordPress admin. Uninstalled, good luck with this one.

I needed an answer. I was still using the free version. Used Fakebook messenger. They replied within a couple minutes and quickly helped me. Will definitely buy this plugin when I can afford it! Oh and yes, it works great for the 1250 images I now have categorized.

When we try to add an image anywhere, Filebird will not load. This plugin will slow down your work exponentially. Everything from editing an image, inserting, anything image related. it takes forever to do a single image. We did not know what the issue was and wasted hours of valuable time that we cannot get back. its not worth it. this plugin cost us a few hundred in lost time. Need fixed. To make it worse, after deactivation, its still there trying to load when inserting image. This plugin is not compliant w wordpress standards. Confirmed after our developers examined code.
