Great Plugin, Fantastic Support

By LN-CWM on August 18, 2023

I've found this plugin to be super useful for managing my uploads directory and other tasks. Easy to use and the support team is very quick and to the point in providing help. Highly recommended!

Best out there!

Been using a number of file managers, all with the limitations, but this one is, as stated, the best! Don't even bother with anything else. And this is invaluable on a Docker instance of Wordpress.

Brilliant Plugin that is so much better than the standard Filemanager

By Michael (michaelatputharajah) on July 24, 2023

This plugin is very useful and it's amazing the fact that the entire thing is free with all the *premium* features that others would charge for included.

I would like to thank the team for their immediate support too which was above and beyond what was required.

Thanks Ninja Team for providing such an invaluable plugin and for being so supportive :)

Best of these file system browsers

There are a number of plugins that seem to use the same codebase. This one works well and has the most code editor options. It's all free. There are no commercial add-ons or restrictions.

Great plugin and its completely free

Great plugin

Has all the settings I need, thanks for your work!

Fairly Good - One change requested

By ssenneff on May 13, 2023

I like this plugin. I discovered one issue which is that when I do a migration to a staging site or an update, the setting for path from production also gets migrated to the staging site. That can be dangerous in that you think you are in non-production, but are actually seeing or changing the files on the production site. That setting should be locked and not migrate its data.
