Issues with filebrowser

Uses jQuery plugins, so any plugins that replaces the jQuery can conflict
on iOs, filebrowser templates remove the a-tag!

If you get an error during Dropbox sync like “cURL-Error (52): Empty reply from server”, disable open_basedir in PHP.ini.

    After a server reconfiguration, can no longer upload files or see WP-Filebase ptions in our intranet installation. All it does is ask for the serial number, which is valid. Can you advise please? Thanks

    I unchecked the option “Accept empty referrers” but I can still download without referrer normally. Is there anything I can do to block all no referrer downloads?

    I am trailling the pro version using your online demo set up but I cannot get the indexing of meta keywords or the tilte of a PDF to work. When I search for the keywords, nothing happens, but they are definitely their alright in my PDF. Am I missing something, or can you show me an example of a PDF which does work as expected? Thanks.

      on the demo server there is an old version of Ghostscript installed (Ghostscript version 8.71).
      For proper PDF indexing at least 9.05 is required. Please check what version is running on your server.
