Issues with filebrowser

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



Remote Sync

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

    Hello Fabian,

    I’m reconstructing an intranet page for our company that my predecessor build before me. Unfortunately for us he has done a very poor job with it and therefore i decided to start building from scratch.

    Due to the fact we have a very large amount of documents (35K +) on this page, we are using WP-Filebase Pro but this gives me a huge problem…
    We should have a license key, but don’t know which and even where my predecessor stored it. And therefore i can’t use the live sync or even the premium support on your website.

    Is there a way to extract our license from the old installation and import it into the new?
    It’s possible for me to send you proof in screenshots of the Pro version using a local IP just tell me where to send them.

    Thanks if you decide to help me out!

    Best regards,

    I am trying out your plugin before I get the pro version, but am running into an issue with listing the files attached to each category. I have uploaded 80 some files, all located in about 20 folders) then performed a file sync. This has worked and everything showed up within the module’s File Browser. However, the page that I have set up to show all these categories and files, only shows the categories and where the files should display, I am only seeing a spinning circle.
    I did try setting the option “Late script loading” but that didn’t help.

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you!

    i had purchased the pro version for my site about a year ago. there was some reasons i decided not to publish the site . but now i am going to publish it and unfortunately i’ve forgotten my wp-filebase pro key
    that’s not the main problem. because the pro version is still installed on the site and i can use it for now . the problem is i forgot the email i had signed up with and purchased the license key
    you can understand my site’s domain from my email i’m using to write this comment to figure out which key is mine
    what i want from you is to just give me the email i had used

    Hi Fabi,

    I have a password-protected page on my WordPress website.

    On the page, I have links to .doc and .pdf files in WP-Filebase Pro.

    The password protect works fine — I enter the password and the page comes up.

    But, when I click on a link to download a file, I get this message

    You are not allowed to access this file! (I’m the admin!)

    Is there a setting I should change?
