General about WP-Filebase

WP-Filebase’s file management

WP-Filebase uses a category/sub-category/file taxonomy. Each category can have multiple sub-categories (child categories) and files.

The file system is kept in sync with the category tree in the Database, e.g. each category has a folder containing the files and directories of all children (files and categories). This brings the advantage that you can easily add, modify or delete files directly on the file system, for example by FTP. WP-Filebase offers a function to synchronize the database with the file system, so file properties like size and hash sum get updated. (Never forget to sync after changing files with FTP!). See Sync.

      Hello,

      you can sort the list by >file_hits to show the top downloaded.
      Since voting works with 3rd party plugins, its up to the vote plugin to show a list of highest voted file pages.

      Regards
      Fabian

    Hi Fabian,
    i’m looking for a tool allowing me to restrict the access of single pages’ file attachments. but this restriction must apply not to roles, but to specific groups, e.g.: i create a group (NOT a role – i’ve seen your plugin already does this) of user then in create a page, in which i upload my files to be seen only by my target group. the page is protected: you can see its content only if you’re logged in the system AND your user is part of the group. so – to prevent hotlinking, but in the same time allowing direct access to my specific group of users – i need the page’s attachements to be accessible only to this group. is this possible with your plugin?

    thx in advance e compliments for your well done job,
    s.

    The time delay between uploads is 60 seconds — in other words after uploading a file I must wait 60 seconds before uploading a second file (from the same browser/computer), then another 60 seconds before uploading a 3rd file…, etc. How can I change that time delay? Is this a PHP or MySQL config, or is this set in WPFileBase?

      He Paul, yes it is. It extracts all keywords and includes them during search.

    Hello:
    Can you add new functionality for not only upload files but also add links to HTML pages?
    That is, when display a category you can view both, links files for download and links to HTML pages.
    Thank you in advance for your attention. Hope you answer

    I know that there is a way to change the folder name but it does not work. When you go to Settings > Download and change the “Download URL base” to anything other than download I receive a forbidden error stating that I do not have permission to access the file on the server. As soon as I change it back to download everything works fine. Am I missing a step??

    Rebuild your Permalink structure (just disable permalinks and re-enable it in WordPress settings)
