Support » Plugin: WordPress File Sharing Plugin » Exactly what looking for

  • Good, but suffers from some file-type limitations imposed by WordPress. For example you can’t upload .xslx spreadsheets. To avoid the limitations add to wp-config.php

    /* allow unfiltered uploads */
    define( 'ALLOW_UNFILTERED_UPLOADS', true );

    Then, once your Upload Dialog is open, turn the file-type selector from “allowed types only” to “all types“, otherwise .xslx will not be shown.


    Then, the folders created are not really private. If you want to hide them to public, you should secure your server otherwise, outside WordPress. Consider using .htaccess:

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} upf-docs [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} many-more-folders [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} ^.(pdf|doc|zip|xslx|odt)$
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_COOKIE} !^.wordpress_logged_in.$ [NC]
    RewriteRule (redirect to your login page)
