File Manager Plugin for WordPress


Easy to use WordPress plugin, which enables the users to view, edit and create files in the WordPress folder and its sub-folders. It has simple and elegant interface and can be easily used even by beginners. It has different icons for major file types, provides preview icons for images and Windows-like right click menu for editing and information purposes. Admin can give read/write/access permissions to any user. Admin can give folder permissions to any user. It also enables you to access files from the front end.
