File Away



Superb Plugin – Pretty much irreplaceable

Have been using this plugin very successfully for several years now to allow access to a small library of about 100 meeting minutes pdf files in different folders. It does the job superbly and is so easy to use that I hardly get any user issues. That's both on mobiles and desktops, it works well with a responsive theme. As Wordfence now warns of it being "abandoned" I've been looking at potential alternatives. Whilst I've found a couple that will do the job, they've both got downsides, particularly speed if Ajax is involved. Would love to see this plugin carry on and would be very happy to pay for a premium version.

Excellent plugin

works fine with 4.9.5 on test site. will definitely donate to the author when we go live. there is no other plugin even remotely similar.

Excellent work

Once you've got your head around the basics this is an easy to use file repository plugin. Code appears to be clean and it loads fast. Really good job on this, thank you.


Apart from minor bugs related to compatibility with other plugins, this is a gem! Please continue development!
