  • Admin Settings
  • Media Upload Integration


  1. Upload the plugin folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Add your Filestack API Key
  4. drop the shortcode [filepicker] in a post or page – or upload via the media section of the admin


Do I need a Filestack account?

Yes, although currently a starter account is free.

Does it work with the wordpress media uploader?


Is it easily added to pages or posts for signed-in & non signed-in users to upload files?

The FAQ says you need an account but 'currently it is free'. Inside the plugin, the account sign-up links go to 403 errors. When you go to file picker's website to sign-up, it is currently (early Nov 2015) only free for a 10 day trial period. I thought this was a great solution to working on my site from a slow connection in a hotel, but a waste of time downloading. I am sure it works well if you do pay, but my need does not warrant that. The misleading FAQ wasted my time - hence the low rating.

Well done. Very useful for any and all sites.
