Editor Plugin

WP-Filebase adds a new button to the visual editor. Clicking on that button opens the WP-Filebase’s Editor Plugin to insert shortcodes into the content. WP-Filebase shortcodes can generate file lists or insert single files into posts or pages.
Editor Plugin


This tab includes a file upload form which can be used to upload new files. (See File Form.) Files that are uploaded here will automatically be attached to the post. You’ll find a list of all attachments above the form. Below the form there’s a file browser.  Click on a file to attach it to the current post. It will appear in the list above after 10 seconds or next time you open the editor plugin.

Single file

Here you can create shortcodes to insert single files into the content. First select a Template. Then select a file. The shortcode will be insert  at the current cursors position in the editor.

File Url

If just want to insert the download URL of a file, use this tab. Select a file out of the browser and enter the linktext.

File List

Insert fully customizable file lists. You can select multiple categories to list, or include all categories. Choose a List Template and set the file sort order and pagination. When you tick ‘List selected Categories’ files are grouped by category.

File Tree View

Here you can insert an AJAX File Tree like the File Browser. You can select the root category of the browser, so users can only browser in this and all child categories.

Embed Upload Form (Pro)

Here you can generate shortcodes to insert upload forms into the content. You can create embeddable forms on WP-Filebase -> Embeddable Forms.

    The list view in the editor (as shown above) does not show categories to select from, just “Include all categories”.

    Yes, categories are set up, and the editor worked before a recent update.

    The embed shortcode is not working in Safari or Chrome, only in FF. This is the sole reason I upgraded to Pro. Is there a fix? Thanks

    Yes, categories are set up. Same result on IE10, FF24 and Google Chrome 30

    I have the probem, that editor_plugin.php is not working, i tried all of this ( //wpfilebase.com/how-tos/file-browser-not-loading-editor-plugin-gives-internal-server-error/comment-page-1/#comment-1076278 ) and checked the wp-settings. Some other plugins with buttons in the editor work, some other not.

    Also the select-buttons in the settings of filebase does not work. Any ideas what i can do?

    Thanks in advance

    Does anyone know how to ADD the category description next to the category in FILE TREE VIEW? Would it be %file_description% and if so, where would I add it?

    I went through each template that was labeled Browser or File Browser, but had no luck when I added %file_description%. I ‘think’ this TREE view is Ajax only and is not configurable. Please, someone tell me I am wrong.

    Thanks everyone.

    When using the editor plugin and go to “File URL”, it displays the inline add functionality to all available categories but no matter which category I drive down to and then I select and click “+Add File” it always add the file to the root of the file browser.
