Features to add functional polish
I’ve been inside and out of WPFBP the last couple days. Though I think its goals are spot on, I’m finding it lacks certain ’finishing’ elements that would make it complete — not loaded w/ bells and whistles — just basic features or feature elements that are missing or incompletely implemented.
For instance, when doing a front end upload, a user is given no confirming information that the upload succeeded, though I find in the php code references to that capability, though no ”Upload Succeeded” message is ever displayed. I also find in the code references to an upload progress bar, but that feature doesn’t appear either. Both of these basic functions should work, the framework is in the code to make it happen.
In the File Browser variations I wanted to improve (enlarge) the spacing between lines to make the file tree view more readable (especially w/ custom icons attached to category groups). However, after much code efforts on my part to adjust CSS and then by necessity, the php code itself, it is apparent that this program has grown over time and like most programs needs some serious cleanup and rewriting w/ best practices — such as using CSS classes more extensively instead of using inline-CSS which makes customization and theming nearly impossible without hours of recoding.
Finally, attempting to purchase the Dropbox or Google Drive extensions is a failed effort — all browsers report an infinite redirect loop that causes the browsers to abort the page with no success. Probably just a glitch, but no response from the ”Premium Support” to my inquiry after 3 days.
To be clear, I like what this program is seeking to do. I congratulate the author on core file management functionality. But that core has some gaps in it in the sense of completion of basic features and user-customization.
And, I’ve spent $60 US — a pricey plugin that under inspection doesn’t live up to that price category in terms of polish and core feature completion.
I’d be happy to post a much brighter report if the author would address these issues in an understanding and timely manner.
Not sure what to do now. Keep hacking code I should have to hack? Ask for a refund? Write it off as a $60 (and 3 day) mistake? I’m hoping for a response.

Notify users you are out of business
When you are no longer answering bulletin boards and support tickets remain unanswered with no response for three weeks, and prior support tickets removed, one assumes that you are out of business.
You should not be accepting payments from PayPal or other source if you do not intend to provide support that is paid for. In most countries, this is known as fraud
Delete Link for Front End
Allows users to delte files from the front end (without the context menu)
how can I limit a file exentension to for example: mp3 only
How can force the plugin to limit a file exentension to for example mp3 only?
As far as I have seen in the seeting it is only possible to exclude some extensions.
Woudn’t it make more sense the other way round?
Thanks for your help in advanced,
No hay ninguna opción de editar las etiquetas de los archivos. Al cabo del tiempo se duplican con ortografías distintas.
Excepcionalmente hay archivos que deben estar en más de cuatro categorías (un documento extenso que abarque amplias materias). Debería habilitarse una opción de poder añadir más categorías secundarias.
Además, en el visor de archivos deberían aparecer no sólo las categorías principales, sino también las secundarias.
File Size Limit for embedded Forms

Remote URI Template Tag
I had need to access the remote uri of a file in the filepage template so I added the following code to the Models.php and File.php files. I’m sharing because I thought this might be a useful addition for others.
added on line 36 to array returned by else in function TplVarsDesc
’file_remote_url’ => __(’Remote Download URL’,’wp-filebase’),
added on lines 579-580 to switch in function get_tpl_var
