Filr

The easy way to build and display secure document libraries in WordPress. Upload files, share secure links or use the Shortcode to display an awesome document library.

Upload files

Create a “File” entry in your admin area under Files -> Add new. Give the file a title and upload your files and your done.

You can also activate the filename encryption, set an expiration date or limit the number of downloads under “Advanced Options”.

You can control file access also on a user (by e-mail) or user role level.

When your ready hit the publish button and your download link will be generated which you can copy and share with your users.

Manage Settings

Configure your custom file directory, add a global protection via index.php or .htaccess file to block any direct access to your directory.

Check if your server has the required settings and extensions to run Filr as smooth as possible.

Directly open your protected directory to check if the protection was applied.

Shortcode:

Manage the entire appearance of the library shortcode. Colors, font-sizes, box-shadow and borders, activate and deactivate columns, reorder them and completly make it yours.

Advanced:

Add a custom date format to match with your language and your own display preferences.

Display a library

With the shortcode [filr library="your-library"] you can easily show a library of documents. Assign files to a library, place the shortcode and your users can download and view their files.

It also handles the dynamic reduction of the number of downloads, shows remaining dates. You can activate and deactivate several columns to match your style.

The best document library in WordPress šŸ•¹ļø

Filr is used for a variety of reasons. It’s actively in development and permanently enhanced with awesome features.

Directory Protection

Simple and reliable protection for your download directory. Global and per download – theres no way around.

Encryption

Encrypt your file names automatically at your upload, activate it later or revert it entirely – your choice.

ZIP

When you upload multiple files at one, Filr automatically creates a zip file and generates a matching download link for you.

Expire by date

Expire files by date. Set an end date and let Filr manage the tracking and expiration for you. It it’s additionally handeled via Cron-job to ensure it’s on point.

Expire by downloads

Expire files by the number of downloads. An indicator in the file overview shows you the remaining downloads so you can easily keep track on them.

Limit User and User Role

You can limit the access to a user or an entire user role directly within a file. Users will only see the allowed files within the shortcode.

File Cleaner

An automatic file cleaner makes sure that only your desired files are in your directory. It checks the status everytime you edit, open or modify a file.

Customization

Customize the shortcode within the settings. Add columns, disable them, reorder them – it’s up to you how Filr will showcase your documents and files.

Frontend

Let users search, sort and filter within your document library. Neat SVG icons, a responsive design and straight-forward best-practives make it awesome on any device.
