Great FTP

By nicolasvsedeco on June 18, 2023

Great FTP for those not having FTP login access

I Think

By domanhcuong on January 30, 2023

it is good plugin (Y)

Did what I wanted

By Parapet on January 14, 2023

I wanted Wordpress to recognize audio files I uploaded via FTP. This plugin did exactly that with no issues whatsoever.

Fantastic for record label uploads

By neotrope on June 5, 2022

This is awesome. Even with dedicated server and correct PHP upload size limits set, post limit size set, etc., WordPress media uploader could not handle a 380MB zip archive of music recording download. FTP no problem, but WooCommerce and media uploader just failed with unknown error. This worked first time, and did exactly what it said it would do. Wow. Talk about solving a problem! One of those stupid issues with WP and WooCommerce with large media files that is not a simple fix via wp-config. THANK YOU! :)

Great tool for those big media files you can only ftp to the server

By Uwe Jacobs (uwejacobs) on March 28, 2022

Whenever I need to upload media files that are too big to upload directly to WordPress, I FTP them to the server and use this plugin to add them.

Worked for files not folders

By Jeff-Design-Dev on February 24, 2022

I was able to import files into Media using WordPress 5.9. I could not do this with folders, which made things a bit tedious. But overall a good plugin.

Can Finally Use My Custom File Location

By torikamal on January 30, 2022

This plugin has saved me so many pulled hairs. If you were trying to find a way to use files in your own folder with the Media Library, this is it. It's bewildering that this functionality isn't built into Wordpress already, but hats off for making this and publishing it. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Lightweight. Does what I wanted.

This allows you to add images from anywhere in your server in such a way that they are treated by WordPress and other plugins the way they treat other "Media" images, while preserving your custom image directories. Because the entire folder for this plugin is only about 32 KB, I would recommend this before any other similar plugins.

Worked for WordPress 5.8.3

By janetbullard01 on August 17, 2022

Hello Everyone, Hostgator agent suggested I use the plugin and it worked perfectly. Also, the agent sent me this Plugin and use FileZilla FTP. I am using WordPress 5.8.3. [signature moderated]

Works with 5.8

By CharlesWorks (charlesworks) on December 22, 2021

This worked perfectly with WordPress 5.8 for what we needed - to add files back into a site in their original structure within the uploads directory after using FileZilla to put the files back.
