A simple bit of shortcode will place both a file uploader and file list anywhere you choose on your website.

The list and/or the uploader can be turned on and off for the front-side of the website. You can show just the list, just the uploader, or both. You can also restrict uploading and/or viewing of the file list to only Admins or logged-in users. For list management, there is a page in the administration area which always shows both. Here you can easily view, upload, rename and delete files as needed.

Simple File List is also an alternative to using FTP or Dropbox for very large files. There’s no need to deal with Dropbox or FTP usernames and passwords anymore! Everything is on your WordPress website. All you need is an adequate hosting provider.

Place this shortcode on any page, post or widget


This basic shortcode will show the file uploader and file list defined by the plugin’s settings pages. However, you can also use an extensive set of shortcode attributes to over-ride the function and appearance settings.

Add Folder Support and use shortcode to place specific file lists in various places on your site.
