    Thank you for this add-on. I need a little more information on how to show files using the [wpdm-file-browser] shortcode. I have a multisite and want to host common files on one of the sites and then pull the tree for them on a sidebar on other sites. How would I go about doing this using your shortcodes?

    • Shaon

      Sorry, that is not possible, you can share single package, not a complete tree, anyhow we have noted it for future implementation.

    Hi is there the ability to keep this private just for editors? I want to use this more as an easier way for the web editor to click on categories and upload or delete files in that category.

    • rossmilner

      Oh and is folders the same as categories. Is this linked to the general Documents Downloads List?

      • Shahriar

        Yes, Folders are same as categories and they are linked to downloads list. Each user will have his own category base.

    • Shahriar

      Yes, you can control access from Download Manager Settings >> Frontend tab

    I purchased this to try with the wp download manager free but the short code is just giving me a red error. Do I need to purchase the Pro version to use this?

    Hi, I have a client who needs to give his clients access to documents. Each client will have a folder with their data, for example company xx, from that folder there will be more subfolders, year, quarters, etc.

    If there was a client there would be no problems, the problem comes when there are more than 300 and I want it to be managed well, without having to put the information file by file, but upload to the server and place the documents as they are on the computer and that the only thing that has to be closed is the access to the first category / folder so that nobody can see the content except the client owner of those documents.

    Is it possible with this plugin?

    Thank you

    Few questions.
    -Can we restrict uploads to a specific file type/size?
    -Is this compatible with your cloud add-ons, for example, users uploads go to google drive?

  • Ian Tavener

    Is there a way to auto protect new uploads? Presently, if a user uploads files, all links and access are public until I restrict access.
    I want users to upload files, but then they’re only available for that user, or for admin to access. Will another add-on help with this? I purchased the all add-on pack

    • Ian Tavener

      Even when I try to manually restrict access to this category to ‘Author’ and ‘admin’, then I purge all my website caches, access site through private browser, and I can still access these files.

      • Shahjada

        For now, File Hosting & Sharing Add-on set access to “All Visitors” for packages by default, however, we are adding default value add-on compatibility with the next update of the add-on, then, you will be able to set initial value using the default value add-on. The update is coming within the next week.

    Hi, I installed the addon but the shortcode prints the following error: “Operation failed!”
    Is it because I installed it on a free version of WP Download Manager? I need to upgrade to PRO?


  • Jahanur Miah

    need short code

    • W3 Eden

      The shortcode is [wpdm-file-browser], which is also mentioned in the “Usage” section of the product description :).

  • BFM Group Inc

    The demos do not work. Can they be fixed so I can test it out.
