WP Docs Insights

  • Breadcrumb bar is available for a better navigation.
  • Front end refresh based files browser.
  • Document preview and thumbnails available for most file types.
  • Posts created for each new directory and your library items will be considered as file items using meta fields for post efficiently.
  • The ability to create, edit and delete directories and sub-directories.
  • A smooth navigation experience based on jQuery/Ajax instead of page refresh. This is a premium feature.
  • Each folder can have a separate shortcode so you can use different pages for different directory listing and files inside.

How can i change directories background, text and hover colors?

How can i change sort order by Filename or Post Title?

How security level feature work?

Click on any directory and select a logged in user role as a security level. So automatically logged in and that required role will be implemented as dual security. In addition, all sub-directories will follow get the same security level.

What if I accidentally turn back to FREE version from PRO?

Your data security is important for us. In case you got replaced the PRO version with a FREE one, all secured directories and content inside will remain secured and will work in the same way. The only missing part would be, new security level implementation and/or removal.

How to manage files with this plugin?

You can create directories with sub-directories to manage files with this plugin. You can add a new folder with “New Folder” button and edit / delete files or folders with Edit / Delete buttons.

How to implement different shortcodes on different sub-pages with different sub-folders?

Create a new sub-folder / sub-directory, different shortcode will appear in shortcode section. so you can use different pages for different directory listing and files inside.

Uninstalling WP Docs

When you uninstall the plugin, files will still remain in your WordPress library because these files are linked within these directories not physically moved within.

Very simple and effective plugin. Just what I was searching for. Only minus is that I find the premium version very expensive. But for sure great job!

Stumbled across this plugin and though I would try it. Very happy, works well has just the right features for listing documents without the bloat. Developer was very responsive when ask to sort by title. Thank you Fahad.

I can easily manage its front-end customization and client can take care of back-end complex directory structure. It was a headache to manage the things with categories and pages on front. Its better to use a shortcode. Huge thanks for this plugin, i am expecting some ready made front-end themes either free or premium but it will save a lot of time to customize front-end. I hope that other users will vote up for my request too. Keep up the good work.
