Does it very well indeed
By ,

Was looking for a plugin to provide abilities for users to upload files and see list of their uploads from frontend. Went through a couple of plugins that never really quite nailed it until I stumbled upon File Away. This plugin not only provide that, it also allow dynamic path which means that all the files uploaded are automatically files in a new folder with user name so thing are super tidy in the back end. Oh and it is very complete, easy to set up and the CSS looks super neat out of the box. This is so spot on ! Amazing plugin really, great job !

Elegant, Deep and Beautiful

File Away is a work of art! You can keep it simple with shortcodes to start and go much deeper when you get the hang of it. I'm doing things with it now I didn't even think of when I first installed it. SUPER!

Highly Polished - Professional

I needed a plugin to list the contents of directories on my web server, that integrated seamlessly with WordPress. Luckily I found File Away. After setting up my base directories and other settings, I inserted the "Directory Files" shortcode into a page. It didn't show the contents of the folder initially. I had to add the directories="on" option to the shortcode, then it worked. This plugin is polished, professional, and functional. Donation incoming.

Very nice application, very powerful, the result of an excellent job, essential, totally customizable, a must-have for wordpress. The only suggestion is that implementerei the auto-update of the list after loading a new file, as happens when you create a new folder.

not for the faint hearted

This plugin requires a complete mindset change if you come from other point-and-click file managers. You also need to be familiar with coding variables/attributes, otherwise you will simply get lost, i.e. give up. But all that is fair enough, especially if you think that this plugin is extremely well coded and solid.
However, you will have to dive into a "trial-and-errors" pit, trying to imagine the results of your settings, because there's absolutely no preview in the "create/insert shortcode" box, neither on the website or the tutorial. The list of features is big and surely includes the one feature you need, but from that to creating it there's a long way to go.

I don't know how long it's gonna take me to set up what I use to do in just one second with other more intuitive plugins, but I'll probably stick to this one because of it's solidity. Let's see. Sure it deserves 5 star and it should get more downloads.

Really useful plugin!

The fileaway plugin is excellent - I rarely leave reviews but fileaway is simple but totally powerful and customizable at the same time for both file Uploader and front-end Manager. I had to thoroughly read the tutorials and once I got a handle on all the features it proves to be one of the most useful plugins I have ever downloaded.

I was able to customize it using both PHP and javascript to do exactly what I wanted with timely support from the author.

The styling of both front and back end is also excellent.

I'd highly recommend using it and donating to the author.

Echoing Praise
By , for WP 4.4.2

I have to echo the praise already given in this forum. This plugin is thoroughly thought out and documented. It took me a day to get a handle on how it works but I came out of it appreciating how clean and powerful is the implementation. I had looked at a few other solutions for attaching files to a blog post or page (free and paid) but found them all much more cumbersome to use. I am sticking with File Away.

Support from the author has been great.

Robust, free, and great support

What is not to love? Couldn't recommend this more highly.
