A little tricky if you want the upload directory to be the same as the download directory.....remember to turn off direct link protection.

Me encanto este plugin! a pesar de ser la version free.

Pero me sigue molestando el errror

WP-Filebase API request error:WP_Error Object ( [errors] => Array ( [http_request_failed] => Array ( [0] => connect() timed out! ) ) [error_data] => Array ( ) ) WP-Filebase API request error:WP_Error Object ( [errors] => Array ( [http_request_failed] => Array ( [0] => connect() timed out! ) ) [error_data] => Array ( ) )

Si lo pudieran resolver. seria perfecto.

Had to abandon WordPress Download Manager in favor of this plugin. I have come to the conclusion that this is the best plugin to use when dealing with very large file systems.

Filebase has the best back-end file management around, allowing you to manually copy/paste an existing file/folder system into the filebase directory on the server. Hit the file sync button, and you're in business. Similarly, large-scale reorganization can be done without opening WordPress. Just open the filebase folder on the server, and move things around. Although moving folders will break any shortcodes you have pointed to those folders.

The templating system is great as well. Took me 5 seconds to add a "date created" timestamp to every single filebase file link on my site.

This plugin fails--as most do--when it comes to visually displaying your file hierarchy in the WordPress admin dashboard. I was hoping to find a list of top level folders which I could then expand and explore individually, but instead, the Filebase file list (in the Filebase admin dashboard) is just that; a list of every file you have uploaded. No folders, no organization. The category list does provide some organization, but it doesn't nest folders, it just lists every single folder it finds in the Filebase directory. I would be so lost if I didn't have the ability to make changes to the file structure through Finder/Windows Explorer.

Relative to the other file down loading program, WP Downloading Manager is nice and simple. It is as straight forward a plug-in as you can create for the potentially technical world of offering downloadable files on your WP website.

I'm ready to pay for a premium version that might provide a little more control over how the file links look and feel. But so far, this version has worked flawlessly...and I'm so appreciated of that.

Useful !

This plugin does great job if have large collection of files already in subfolders. Nice features.

Good functionality, but a bit clunky and finicky

This plugin has a ton of features. It's out-of-the-box displays are clunky but it is very easy to customize with your own templates. Syncing with the file system is a bit hit or miss - doesn't detect moved files very well (if at all). But, overall this plugin is one of the best options I've found for wrapping metadata around your files.

Good for sync jobs

Wp-filebase really shines when synchronising a document repository with files in the file system. A small tweak to set the offline attribute by default was all it took to turn wp-filebase into a document publisher that automatically takes files from our legacy systems and publishes them on the intranet while requiring editors to actively set them online once they are validated and annotated. From there on any updates to documents are automatically handled.
