Upgrading from Free Version

Upgrading from WP-Filebase free to WP-Filebase Pro is easy:

  1. Extract the Pro Plugin package
  2. Upload the folder wp-filebase-pro to WordPress plugin directory wp-content/plugins
  3. Go to WordPress Dashboard -> Plugins and disable the free version of WP-Filebase (the free version is titled WP-Filebase, while the Pro Version appears as WP-Filebase Pro)
  4. After disabling the free version, you can enable the Pro version. On first activation the Plugin alters its Database tables to make the new features available.
  5. Now you can activate WP-Filebase Pro using your License Key. (q.v Setup)

You can downgrade from WP-Filebase Pro to WP-Filebase free at any time.

    Thanks for a great plugin, if I purchased a pro licence for one year, what happens after it expires? Does it revert back to the free version or is the limitation for support?

      It’s probably a missing NONCE_SALT in wp-config.php, see //wpfilebase.com/how-tos/fix-missing-nonce_salt-warning/ .

    Hi,

    Is it possible to send email notifications to relevant users when files are uploaded?

    Eg:
    1. File is uploaded to the Manager category, viewable by Users with Manager role.
    2. WPFP sends an email to all Users with Manager role informing them of new files

    If not, do you know of any plugins that would do this? Or could this be a feature you add?

    Thanks.

      Hi Matt,

      this is already implemented. Emails are sent to users with access permissions.

      Regards

    Hi guys, I’m already using WP filebase on one of our websites.
    1.Now, we have a request for a function where clients could Upload their files to one place, and we could download them and process them.
    2. Both sides receive email confirmation when upload / download is complete
    3. I would only want access to the file upload / download section for the client on our WP site. Checking the WP Codex, I’d have to add the client as an Author. Does the plugin introduce new user groups limiting new user to only have aceess to Filebase?

    I think this plugin could work but I would like a confirmation.
    Many thanks in advance,
    Jana
