I really needed this and it worked
By , for WP 4.3.1

I develop web sites on private servers, then export them to the web. I needed this plugin to create a directory and file from within WordPress in order to set the user and group on the file system to what WordPress expects on my installation, "http".

I couldn't do this outside of WordPress because "http" is a special user and group that I could not access or change from the administration console of the server. The FileManager plugin allowed me to create the directory and file, which I then edit with WinSCP. WinSCP throws an error when I edit the file, but it still works and I'm able to move forward.

Still working great

Что это за файловый менеджер такой у которого нет доступа к корневой папке сайта?! Есть доступ только к одной папке wp-admin и все. Это очень плохо!

Not updated but still great

Works perfect

This is the best solution to update files of theme and plugins, if you don't have ftp access or if ftp is not working.

The one thing that this plugin is not doing is editing the file directly. We need to download the files and then again upload it to the location using the plugin. But its ok, its not a big issue.


Great Work

This Plugin is really good and used many times.

corrupt uploads
By , for WP 4.1.1

Uploading doesn't work right. I can download a php file, make one change, and when I upload it the file-size will go from 1,000kb to 700,000kb and break pretty much everything. It took me a while to figure out it wasn't botched coding on my part and ended up being a huge waste of time.
This plugin also does not give me the option to edit, there's just a blank spot for where the edit button is supposed to be.

Does just exactly what I needed, to be able to upload & download files in the dashboard without having to set up a download page.
