Based on WP-Filebase, this extended version includes even more features, like PDF thumbnails, single file pages and batch syncing. If you – or you clients – are already using WP-Filebase, you can just upgrade to WP-Filebase Pro and all files, categories and settings are adopted – no need of reconfiguration.
This table compares the features of WP-Filebase and WP-Filebase Pro:
|Templates for Files, Categories and Lists|
|Paginated and Sortable File Lists|
|AJAX File Tree Browser|
|Secondary Categories for Files|
|Extended Permissions & File Passwords|
|Embedded Upload Forms|
|PDF thumbnails and indexing|
|Improved Batch Import & Syncing|
|File Detail Pages|
|FTP, Dropbox & Amazon S3 Sync|
Files can be assigned to up to three secondary categories. The actual file stays in the primary category, while links are added to secondary categories so it will appear in file lists.
With WP-Filebase Pro you can protect files with passwords and set file access permissions to individual users.
You can select multiple user roles and users to allow access to files and categories.
Furthermore you have control about who can upload, edit files, delete files, manage categories, edit templates or create upload forms.
Upload to Categories can be restricted to user roles and individual users.
You can embed upload forms into content to allow users to upload files from the front-end. You can either let the uploading user choose to which category the files is uploaded or you can set a fixed target category. For categories you can set upload permissions to restrict upload to certain users.
Embedded Forms include a fancy HTML5/Flash uploader that has a Drag & Drop area and progress bar.
WP-Filebase Pro can generate thumbnails of PDF files and support indexing their keywords for search. It can even automatically extract the Document Title with a custom regular expression.
Thumbnail generation requires GhostScript to be installed on your server. Use this PHP-File to test if GhostScript is properly installed on your Linux or Windows server. ODT and DOCX files are indexed so they will appear in search results.
… never runs out of memory anymore! Regardless of how many files you want to import, Batch Syncing can add ‘em all! In an initial step it builds a file list, which is processed in multiple requests.
Do you have ads you want to present to the user before the download starts? With File Pages you can do! A details page is generated for each file, using a customizable template. You can additionally setup an automatic timer to redirect to the download.
Finally you can simply add your Dropbox Files to your WordPress Blog. The Remote Sync (or Cloud Sync) connects to your Dropbox or Amazon S3 account and scans directories and files. Thumbnails are automatically created while the file stays in the Cloud without causing any data traffic to your website. The same with FTP: enter the FTP login details and WP-Filebase starts adding all files recursively from the FTP site.
Combined with cron sync, WP-Filebase Pro will automatically display files added to the Dropbox or FTP site.
Remote Sync is 2-way, that means that files uploaded to the WordPress Site are automatically uploaded to the Cloud Server. Read more …
