This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



What to do?

Use a list of paths and produces a pic representing a hierarchy of paths (which can be a PNG image or tree text) of a File Manager Windows or Linux.

Why use it?

You can save time because you avoid that you have to capture the image of the paths in your File Manager, save it, upload it and set it in WordPress.

You will have available in your articles your paths in text format.

If you have installed Windows and you need to show your style paths with Linux File Manager you can do with this plugin. The same case but Linux to Windows is also considered.

How to use it?

You just need to write the paths you want to generate using the directory separators File System correct, ie if you go to enter paths in the form of Linux, you will have to use as the directory separator / (Forwardslash) or if you’re using Windows format you should use the \ (backslash).

You will have to configure the visual characteristics of the pic choosing the graphical mode or text and style is available for each mode.

In the shortcode’s final indicator making sure that I not contain any spaces before ]

Correct :

[/pathpic ] (see the space between pathpic and ])
