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.

    Where are you guys? wondered where the support for a paid for product is and how you intend to support it in the future.?

    There are things going wrong at the moment and we need some fixes, it would be nice if you came back to us with some news and updates…

    Your web page says WP-Filebase Pro is compatible up to WordPress 4.8.1 . Is it compatible with 5.1.1.?

    I’m exploring possibility of purchasing Pro version. However, I see lots of comments/questions and no answers. Is this plugin still supported? Maybe answers aren’t shared in public?

    Hi, please help us to activate the plugin, I get a message: Activation failed: Connection to license server failed. Make sure the server has an internet connection. If it is behind a proxy add the proxy configuration to wp-config.php. Please try again later or ask your hosting provider for details.

    We have the original free version of WPFB and I have noticed a conflict with The Events Calendar Pro when exporting ical events there are WPFB scripts included in the ical file which shouldn’t be there and breaks the ical file. Before we upgrade to WPFB Pro, I would like to make sure that this issue has been solved in the newer version of WPFB. The ical exports correctly when I disable the WPFB plugin in wordpress v5.2.2 admin. The script that is getting included in the ical export file from The Events Calendar Pro is:


    Thank you for your help and guidance.
