4.9 out of 5 stars
For basic usage on unix is ok, but...

I cannot recommend this plugin. File uploader and file manager doesn't work together, so i had to write some workarounds. But what i dont get now, why its not working on Windows based systems. Like i know technically, its because delimiter issues (did some debug and research on support forum) and so on. But pardon me, plugin written for WordPress should work across systems.

On other the hand, plugin has nice documentation and shortcode generator. In future, after adding support for windows, i will gladly give 5 stars, because first issue is cosmetic, but the second one is for me big mistake...

Edit: Increased rating, author edited description, so now its technically right.

This is a pleasure to work with

Exactly what I was looking for. Am always looking for function before form, but with this plugin you get both. It's beautifully designed and lots of help tips as you get familiar with it. Had another plugin installed, even bought a pro version, but this is much, much better. Thank you so much.

Fantastic!

Works very well. I've had an issue but the author got back to me very quickly. Regardless of the issue though, the plug-in itself is absolutely amazing, fine work!

Best Plugin!

Awesome! Helped me a lot!

A problem with the plugin :/
By ,

Hi,

I think there is a problem with the plugin. when the files are imported, the names of the files are modified by this plugin. For example: the name of the file is:

4087_t12_sr_15

but when it is imported, the file has the name:

4087 T12 Sr 15 <--- the underscores are removed and the first letters are now in upper cases.

The plugin is fantastic. I would rate it 5/5 if this problem of mine is solved. Hope you'll guide me through the right path.

Rarely problem with file statistic, even so FA is very good

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.

This is a glowing, sycophantic review. A glowing, sycophantic review is a collection of words expressing a very positive reaction to this plugin.

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.
