Rarely problem with file statistic, even so FA is very good
By , for WP 4.2.2

Edited 1.7.15
After more discussions with author it looks like there is a problem with file statistic in some very specific conditions. Setting stats="false" in shortcode solved this problem.
FA is one of the best plugin in its field, thanks.

A glowing, sycophantic review for a great product
By , for WP 4.2.2

This is a glowing, sycophantic review. A glowing, sycophantic review is a collection of words expressing a very positive reaction to this plugin. This plugin from Thom Stark is highly recommended, and saved a whole lot of time and extra work. The time saved enabled this glowing, sycophantic review to be written in work time.

Credit to Thom Stark for the syntax.

Saved me hours and hours of work

The File Away (and File Up) plugins are fantastic. They allowed me to focus on building content and layout, rather than building a file management system for our intranet library site. I would pay money (but not a whole lot) for this product.

Best service

WOW.... Thom surely knows all about service.

He is super-fast to respond to my questions and makes sure you problem is resolved.

If only this rating system had 10 stars

I only wish there were more tutorials. I need one specifically on the light box thing.

Best Support and File-Manager
By , for WP 4.1.1

This is the Best File-Manager for WP, and Its Free.
And the Author is a SuperMan with his support.
Never had such a supportive developer, who went far and helped me in creating a new system to work for File-Away.

Great!

especially with latest (3.9.5+) changes for localized file names

Definitely Five Stars

In my opinion, Thom has really hit a home run with this plugin. I experimented with a number of file upload plugins, and then came across File Away. Unfortunately, I discovered that FA had one (purposeful, as it turns out) functionality quirk that was a deal breaker for me...the inability to overwrite existing files. This caused me to revert to another file upload plugin, which worked OK for my purposes, but did not provide near the feature set as does FA. So, I made my case for file overwriting on the forum and happily/gratefully, Thom revised his thinking by incorporating my requested functionality with a FA update that he was already working on. WAY TO GO, THOM! I'm back in the FA fold, now.

I suggest you look no further for a file upload utility. For that matter, File Away's functionality extends way beyond just managing file uploads.

You need to do yourself a favor and try it out. Then, even though FA is amazingly enough FREE, send some money his way anyhow...I did. Thom definitely deserves it for developing this gem of a plugin.

Great plugin!

Thank you for this great piece of work - being a developer of free software myself, I really appreciate all the hard work and therefor just donated a few bucks. Thanks!

I am not PHP developer, but if there is an easy way to provide a German translation, I'd be happy to help.
