    I think you are confusing this plugin with another one. Redirect It is a redirection system and doesn’t work with file downloads directly.

    You could use it to upload files using another method and then link to it using this redirection system. I am wondering if you are referring to my Share Files plugin?

    I don’t know the Share Files plugin. I will try it now.
    I was trying yours as I thought I could use it to share files.

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    Well you could use Redirect It to share files but it is really a redirection system.

    Share Files Plugin: http://wordpress.org/plugins/cleverwise-share-files/

    No problem. You caught me sitting at my workstation!

    Hi,
    I am actually using yours “Cleverwise Share Files” but I can’t upload file?

    It doesn’t allow me to upload a file on my server and then share it.

    I am doing something wrong?

    Yeah there is no built in file uploader. As stated in the FAQ:

    Is there a web browser based uploader?
    No, there is none. Why not? This system was originally designed for a site that has many files of at least 15MB and several over 200MB. Since web browser uploading does NOT handle large files (100MB+) very efficiently it was decided to skip the inclusion of one and instead rely on FTP or sFTP.

    ~~~~~~

    I may eventually put one in but at present there is none. You’ll need to use another method like WordPress’ built in media manager or FTP for the actual files.

    ok. thanks.

    Sure. I understand for some this isn’t ideal. However if you have trusted users, then on most hosting plans, you can create additional FTP accounts that are locked to a specific directory. That is what the project this plugin was designed for does.

    So something like:

    yoursite.tld/downloads/directory for trusted user one
    yoursite.tld/downloads/directory for trusted user two

    BTW I noticed the support and rating links are incorrect for Share Files. That is an error, obviously, and why you probably ended up in this plugin’s support.

    I will fix that shortly and release an updated version. My apologies for that error.
