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 …

    ein tolles Plugin. Ich möchte es nutzen, evtl. auch die Pro-Version. Eine Frage (wichtig): wie kann man Benutzerdefinierte Felder so nutzen, dass anstatt der textarea ein tinymce oder fck editor angezeigt wird? Das wäre ein super Tipp.
    Vielen Dank

    Ich habe es mittlerweile selbst gelöst, wie man die Custom Fields als Richt Text Editor (ckeditor) nutzen kann.

      Das blöde ist nur, dass diese Modifikationen immer überschrieben werden, wenn man das Plugin updated. Evtl. kann der Entwickler des Plugins dieses Feature mal bei Lust und Laune in das Plugin implementieren.
      Wer ist noch dafür? Hand hoch 😉

    Wie groß darf das Thumbnail max. sein?

    For the AJAX tree view of the entire list of files…I am using it as an mp3 library. Is it possible to combine the tree view with the table/grid list…I want when the user clicks Category A…there is a table that will display Album Name | Track Title | Track # | Artist.

    Is this possible, if so, how?

    Also, is there a way a user can download the ENTIRE album instead of one track at a time.?

    Hi, Firstly all the best for 2013 & thanks for a great plugin. The “Statistics/Traffic” on the right hand side of the WP-Filebase page does not display correctly…the words and MB sizes overlap. How can I set this to display correctly? I am using WP-Filebase, WP v3.5 and the Suffusion theme v 4.4.4 and Firefox 17.0.1 on an iMac with OSX 10.7.5.
    Thanks in advance,

    Great plugin but i also has numerous hours spent resetting or reloading or reorganizing due to DB crashes. It would be great if there is an option to backup settings and database structures to a file so that we can reimport in future…thank you for a great plugin

    Happy new year!

    We are trying to use filebase on a multi site WP 3.4.1 environment.

    the filebase seems to be working on the main WP site but it does not work in the second WP site.

    we are aiming to have a main WP site and few sub WP sites. depending on the user level they will be able to access some or all of the sub sites.

    the filebase links will be inserted in the main and sub sites and will work according the user privileges.

    While we are in the sub site logged in with admin privileges we can add and later on see the filebase templates on the pages.

    as long as the logged in user is administrator it seems working…. (all users are on the network (main site ) we give access to each sure to sub sites. (this is as per recommended network multisite setup by WP. everything else seems to be working at the moment.

    with any other user logged in, the filebase links on the main WP is working as expected, filebase links on the sub WP sites are not visible at all. if we insert a direct link to the address bar we get access denied messages.

    what are we missing?

    any suggestions?

    Getting this error when attempting to visit the website after installing latest update to wp_filebase:

    Fatal error: func_get_args(): Can’t be used as a function parameter in /home1/primeage/public_html/wp-content/plugins/wp-filebase/wp-filebase.php on line 34

    Since it locked me out, I commented out all the code in wp-filebase.php and deactivated the plugin. Is this a common issue? Perhaps it’s because I haven’t upgraded to the latest version of WP?

  • Matt Horsley says:

    Hi. I’ve just updated WP-Filebase to the latest version (, but now the downloader does not have the nice layout and border of previous versions. Can this be reinstated?

  • Miquel says:

    After last update, I got an error message regarding “func_get_args” on line 33 of file wp-filebase.php, that broke the WordPress site. To solve the problem I edited the file /wp-content/plugins/wp-filebase/wp-filebase.php (accessing it via FTP) and changing the original line 33:
    if(func_num_args() > 1)
    return array_map(__FUNCTION__, func_get_args());
    by the following:
    if(func_num_args() > 1) {
    $arg_list = func_get_args();
    return array_map(__FUNCTION__, $arg_list);
    That worked for me.

    I have the same error as Len Johnson. Somthing is wrong with the Update I guess!

    I have a question. Why WP Filebase plugins sets such high permissions for catalogs and .htaccess file??? From the security stand point this is terrible. CHMOD 777 isn’t needed for catalogs as well as .htaccess CHMOD 666 is way too high.
