Super useful plugin. The document table organizes documents exactly how users expect them. The AJAX search is very clean.
The setup wizard is nice. There are premium features offered, but they are very clearly marked and for the use cases I had in mind completely optional.
I didn’t realize at first that I had to add the doc_library shortcode to a page to insert the document table into my site, but the documentation linked to from the settings page is very clean and I found the info there. A block option would be nice to make it easier to insert the library into pages.
I was able to use this with the Paid Memberships Pro plugin to protect my table of documents. I just marked the page with the shortcode to require membership and the table was hidden from view. The files are still accessible if the user knows the exact URL of the file. That’s okay for what I needed. If I had to hide them further, PMPro has documentation on how to do that for files on protected pages. I imagine Barn2 has this in the premium version or ready for a future release. I know it’s tough, but helps to protect the files.
Overall a great plugin. Looks great. Works great. Team behind it is great. We’re going to recommend this to all of our users who need this kind of table or grid view for documents organized by categories and folders.
