GoogleDrive folder list

Description

GoogleDrive folder list allows you to insert a document list from any shared folder in google drive.

  • Works only with full-shared folders in GoogleDrive
  • Login to Google services is not required.
  • Customized title
  • ‘thumbnail’ mode:
    • displays thumbnail or the first page of uploaded document.
  • ‘list’ mode:
    • displays download links for each document;
    • can go through nested folders
    • has options to adjust CSS styles from administration panel
    • easy integration in the post or page (just a shortcode)

Screenshots

  • After install you`ll need to share gdocs folders. First, open your Google Drive folder.
  • Then choose folder you want to share and select "share folder"
  • You must select the "anybody-have-access" mode and copy the FID of the folder.

Installation

  1. Install plugin by finding it in plugin repository from the administration panel.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. Place `[gdocs fid=”” title=””] in your post or page to print a simple list of links for documents with settings by default (root only, no thumbnails)
  4. Add an option preview=<true|false> to print a links with / without document thumbnails.
  5. Add an option maxdepth=<depth> to show a nested folders. This WORKS ONLY WITH LIST MODE. 1 means show only root folder, 2 means show root + nested folder content, 3 means second variant + second level nested and so on.

Full option example: [gdocs fid=”” title=”” preview=true maxdepth=2]

If you miss parameter, it will be used from default values or values from administration panel.

Administration panel is now under the “PLUGIN” menu.

Reviews

Good plugin but needs more work

As of this review, the plugin author has not updated since June of 2014. While the plugin still works, it’s a matter of time before the plugin breaks because Google decided to change something. Recently, Google stopped public API key and I had to create one. Thanks to another plugin’s author I was able to catch this on time. This plugin has not been updated for over a year…so that’s my only concern. However, the plugin was simple enough for me to edit/modify things around.

If this plugin’s author is reading, please update (if needed) this plugin and do not let this fade into the night.

Thank you.
