This table compares the features of WP-Filebase and WP-Filebase Pro:

Secondary Categories

Secondary Categories

You can select up to three secondary Categories

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.

Extended Permissions

Extended Permissions

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.

Embedded Upload Forms

Embedded Upload Form with Drag&Drop

Embedded Upload Form with Drag&Drop

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.

PDF Thumbnails and Indexing

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.

Batch Syncing

Batch Sync with memory bar

… 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.

File Details Page

Example File Details Page

Example File Details Page

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.

FTP, Dropbox & Amazon S3 Sync

Finally you can simply add your Dropbox Files to your WordPress Blog. The Remote Sync (or Cloud Sync) connects to any Cloud file-storage Service such as Dropbox, Amazon S3, Google Drive and WebDav (Owncloud). It scans directories and files recursivly. Thumbnails are automatically created while the file stays in the Cloud without causing any data traffic to your website. WP-Filebase Pro can also sync with an external FTP site.
Combined with cron sync, WP-Filebase Pro will automatically display files added to the Dropbox or other cloud services.
Remote Sync is 2-way, that means that files uploaded to the WordPress Site are automatically uploaded to the Cloud Server. Read more …

    Second question was:
    Is it possible to have a file title show in the page rather than the actual name of the file?

    Sure, just replace %file_name% with %file_display_name% in the template.

    Does this system allows customers to create and assign certain files so that each client can only see and download the files that are assigned to your account? (upload and download customized per customer).

    Is there a way to have each parent category on a separate web page? For example, we want to feature product A, B, and C – but we want 3 different pages to feature each, we don’t want them all on the same page.

    How do I remove the license key? We upgraded from one license to another and the old key is still active on a few of our sites, even after a complete uninstall…

    Hi, I need confirmation urgently :
    1) I need to transfer a OLD website file lists to WP and if I use WP Filebase, is there any way I can import file lists by using CSV? By using Batch Syncing, I can transfer the data easily over?

    2) If I’m going to install only 1 copy of WP Filebase for business corporate site, can I purchase the Personal Account version?

    Hope to hear from you real soon so that I can make decision soon.

    Thank you

    Hi Fabian

    I’m about to purchase your plugin but have a question about metadata in PDFs.

    For our website it is vital that metadata from PDFs gets indexed but on your demo this is not working (it says Ghostscript is out of date).

    Presuming when we update Ghostscript on our server to the latest version and indexing works, it says in your documentation that metadata keywords are indexed and the title is pulled from the document metadata too.

    Is it possible to pull into the FileBase fields the Author, Subject (Description) and the date the file was created?

    This would save days of manual data entry for us.
