A simple bit of shortcode [eeSFL] will by default place both a file upload form and file list anywhere you choose on your website.

You can over-ride the default function within the plugin Settings. The list and the upload form can be turned on or off as needed. You can show just the list, just the upload form, or both.

Furthermore, you can also restrict uploading and/or viewing of the file list to only Admins or logged-in users.

The plugin Admin Settings page will always show your main file list along with a file upload form. Here you can easily view, upload, rename and delete files as needed.
