WP-Filebase – File Download Manager for WordPress

Halsion Lunch

WP-Filebase is a powerful download manager supporting file categories, thumbnails and more.

Uploaded files can be associated with a post or page so the download URL, thumbnail and other file information are appended automatically to the content borrower form.

Additionally there are options to limit traffic and download speed.

Some more features:

  • Arrange files in categories and sub-categories
  • Automatically creates thumbnails of images (JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP)
  • Powerful template engine (variables, IF-Blocks)
  • Associate files to posts and automatically attach them to the content
  • Customisable file list widget
  • Hotlinking protection
  • Daily and monthly traffic limits
  • Download speed limiter for registered users and anonymous
  • Range download (allows user to pause downloads and continue them later)
  • Works with permalink structure
  • Download counter which ignores multiple downloads from the same client
  • Many file properties like author, version, supported languages, platforms, license …

    Thank you for the great plugin! The issue I am having with it, however, is when you go in to edit the file, it seems that the thumbnail is getting erased when uploading a new file (not touching the thumbnail settings at all). Any way to resolve this?
    Also, when I do a synchronize with the server after uploading a bunch of files via FTP, it also uploads all of the thumbnails as files. If I delete the thumbnails from the filebase, they get deleted from the server and than I have to manually re-add them to the files.”

    Is there going to be a fix for this?
    Great plugin btw!

    Any news/updates about the WP3 version of WP-filebase?

  • Francesco says:

    Hi Fabian
    well.. first of all congratulation for your great plugin. I think it’s the best file download plugin ever seen for wordpress!
    I’m trying to use it in a Red Cross website, but I got an issue, using PHP5, wp 3.0.1 and latest version of your plugin
    admin side is ok, but when I try to attac a file, or a category list to any page, I push the little icon, a popup shows up with files/categories choice.. but when i choose to insert the file… nothing happens. Popup closes but nothing is inserted in the arcticle.
    no error shown in page.
    many thanks for your help
    best regards,

  • The new update has a counter bug. All the counters are stuck and not working. Can you tell me a fix for this please?

  • Francesco says:

    how to include counter in custom themes ?
    how to show download statistics, or show last uploaded file in a widget ?


  • Fizzgigg says:

    I guess there still are no news about an update that makes this plugin work with WP 3.0.1? Sad.

  • Fabi says:

    Busy with other things atm. Are you using IE? If yes, try using Firefox. This issue is known and happens only on some blogs. I’m working on an update, that should fix this.

  • Really appreciate it man…

    Go into widgets and add the filebase widget to your sidebar.. simple 🙂

  • Mike says:

    Great Plug-in.

    Is there a way to limit the number of download files displayed on a page? I’m going to have hundreds of files and it would be nice to only show maybe 20 at a time with a link at the bottom.

    I too am having problems with the counter not keeping track of the number of downloads with WP 3.0.1

  • Yes, the counter was working in the older version with wp 3.0.1 but the updated one isnt.

    You can add whatever number of links you want in your post.

  • Mike says:

    @Saqib Mansoor

    Thanks for your reply. However, I don’t think I was clear. Let’s say I have 100 downloadable files. I want to display the first 20. Then at the bottom of the screen it say or or whatever. Then on the second page it would say . These would be links to the previous and next 20 files.

    That way visitors won’t have to scroll through 100 (or maybe hundreds) of files on one page.


  • well you want to display 20 links per post on your site. You can try creating categories. 1 category for each 20 links.

  • […] WP-Filebase – This plugin allows us to offer downloadable files. We can insert them into posts now. The first post we used this on was our work on Saskatchewan Energy Future. […]

    Very handy plug-in for restricting attachment downloads to authenticated users;
    although the distinction between redirect to login form, category “For members only”
    and file “For members only” is unclear.

    One minor nit though, the post browser for attaching files on the upload page does
    not list private posts… which adds a few extra steps for those wishing to use this
    nifty module to protect files.


  • Robert says:

    Thanks and congrats, great plugin!
    I’m using it mainly because I want to limit download speeds for each users and it’s working really fine.
    There are two things I’d really want to be there though:

    1. link to file to download, instead of having to upload through WP, as WP limits uploaded file size to a maximum of 16MB.

    2. adjustable timeout for downloads, as it’s limited to 60 secs now (or is it only my WP?)

    Anyway, thank you so much.

  • Hello,
    I have used wp-filebase and it works fine. The only problem is that the screen in tools-> wp-filebase does not appear. I have tried reinstalling. disabling all plugins, and only activat the wp-filebase plugin, but the screen does not appear.

    The screen in settings->wp-filebase does work.

  • DeespoT says:

    Hello there! I have a problem with your plugin or with WordPress, I don’t koow jet. The symptom is, when I upload a file (.rar file) and a registered user downloads it, the content of the file is become corrupt. The winrar cannot extract the downloaded file. Compare both files are shown differences, the source file doesn’t show resemble to the original one. What do you think, what is the problem?

    Hallo, wie werde ich das “GO BACK” auf jeder Seite ganz oben los? Das stört mich optisch wirklich sehr. Welche Zeile in welcher Datei? Danke!!
    Bei mir geht dein Plugin übrigens auch in WordPress 3.0.1 ohne Probleme (glaube ich zumindest).

  • Edit says:

    Hallo Fabian,

    habe gerade deinen Download-Manager getestet und finde ihn sehr gut. Es gibt leider keinen Download-Manager für WordPress, der in allen Bereichen gut ist. Immer fehlt irgend etwas oder die Entwicklung ist eingestellt (wie z.B. beim Downloads Manager von Giulio Ganci).

    Dein Download-Manager gehört wirklich zu den besseren. Deshalb meine Frage: Wirst du ihn noch weiterentwickeln oder auch die Arbeit daran einstellen? Wie sind deine Planungen dazu? Kann man Wünsche äußern?

    Herzliche Grüße

    Hi, can you tell me how to add more file size of 16 mib to a higher value.

  • Manu Hendry says:

    amazing plug-in! however, downloads don’t work on my wp 3.0.1 blog – they just result in files of the right name but with a very wrong files size (200 bytes of garbage).

    is there a compatibility problem with 3.0.1? if so: are you planning to update your plug-in for 3.0.1?
    keep up the great work pleeease! 😉

  • Efthyvoulos says:

    Hallo Fabian,

    Your plug-in seems very promising and useful, however it does not seem to work under wordpress 3.0.1. and
    PHP Version 5.3.1 . When I go to tools –> WP-Filebase nothing appears on the screen.
    When I go to edit a page and I click on the WP-Filebase icon nothing works either. It would be nice if you fix it; as I said before I has some great and very unique features.

    Thank you
