Reviews

Exactly what I needed

Doesn’t create its own attachment type, just allows to better administrate the existing wordpress attachments, exactly what I wanted, thanks very much !

Developer Friendly

Excellent plugin.
Full customable.
Developer Oriented.

I just want to comment that the documentation could be a little bit better.

Congrats!

Excellent Attachment Plugin

This plug in works as expected- Perfectly!

Well, almost perfectly. After uploading a document, one has to put the required shortcode [wpba-attachment-list] in the post edit window in order to display the attachment on the page view.

To work around this and make sure that attachments show up automatically, except when there are none, I put the following code in the ‘content-single.php’ template:

<?php echo do_shortcode('[wpba-attachment-list open_new_window="true" no_attachments_msg=" "]'); ?>
