Great Stuff: Easy to install and set-up. Easy to add docs, and has useful features like Social Share and rating built in. You can add doc description and it handles versioning. Support is excellent.
Minor flaws: Much is built on Bootstrap and it can create page-load. Much CSS is !important and hard to override - with no real style options built in.
There are other good things and flaws but overall this is the only quality plugin of its kind (a library, not a 'pay per item' plugin) and it's free - so an amazing job by the dev.
I'd definitely recommend it.
I like it ... worked as expected, easy to use, issues very quickly resolved!
I was looking for a simple, cheap and efficient plug-in to manage a library with few documents in (typically less than 50).
With Memphis, I am very satisfied. There are still few functions (not main) which do not work yet, but I am confident that these issues will be fixed soon.
Last week, I found a bug. Less that 30 minutes after, the developer has proposed me a workaround until a new releaseis available. I have really apreciated this reactivity.
I am sure that if the developer can continue to be focused on, this plug-in will be a must-have very shortly.
Let's try it!
I propose to add these features:
-make the table showing all documents responsive so that it shows each download details appropriately when browsing the website using a mobile device.
-preview for PDF documents is not working : I installed the curl lib
-instead of showing an icon of PDF document, it is more valuable to show a thumbnail of the first page of the document
-when versioning desactivated, all related information have to be hided in the showed menu.
-even the menu has to be configurable (show/hide every item)
-rating for a given document have to be accepted only from users that have already either downloaded or viewed the document. If the user want to change its rate, old rate have to be deleted to not impact the general rating.
-rating link could be hided from the document grid list and viewed only after viewing or dowloading the document. plugin can also send an email to incite the downloader to rate the document. Some fidelity points could be accorded to the user making rate
-make pdf files searchable by their content from the search form
-add statistics for number of document views (there is plugins which do it) so just use their shortcode.
-when clicking on the document icon/thumnail, navigate to the post details directly.
-since some security plugins blocks non admin users to acess the wordpress admin panel, a form permitting to manage documents for non admin accounts is very useful
-the length of title have to be controlled because long titles impact the grid view.
-ajaxified filtering of documents list (by custom taxonomies/terms or post meta data) is very useful.
-moderation of files added by non admin users is needed.
After installing it took a little tinkering to get this plugin to do what I wanted it to do but with one exception all is working well.
Would have given 5 starts but there seems to be some issues with previews, etc.
I've got Memphis set up and it is so nice to have more control of the files than I did with the plugin I had used to embed the files in posts/ pages. Now I can easily update the files and even see which ones I updated. I really didn't like having my files in the mess of the Media Library on WordPress. So this is much easier to deal with.
I would like a quicker way to pull the links together. Right now I'm still going through one by one and getting the link for each file's URL. Ideally, I'd be able to make a quick index page with all the files in a folder. But, at least the links won't change once I do get the page up.
I'm using this for an ASCII art gallery. I really needed a way to keep the files as plain text but viewable from my site. I used to just upload txt files and then link them. Pretty much what I'm doing now really. But, it will look a lot fancier with the plugin. (Just need to add image files to the description).
Great plugin, with wonderful easy to use screens and options.
thks so much to the author
