Basic Shortcode Usage
Simply place this bit of shortcode in any Post, Page or Widget that you would like the file list to appear. Use the settings tabs to define the overall look and functionality.
Attributes allow you to customize the look and functionality. The syntax is like this:
[eeSFL attribute="this" attribute="that"]
Showing a Specific Folder
Specify the Folder Path from Main List. (Pro Version Only)
If there are sub-folders in this location, users will be able to open them, but will not be able to go above the folder defined in the shortcode. So in this case, users cannot see anything in folder1, just what is in folder2. The folder names are case-sensitive.
Using multiple shortcodes, you can place more than one folder on a single page, with some limitations.
Define the file list to be displayed. You can also specify a folder location and use the other optional attributes shown above.
Show or hide the search form. Options are YES or NO. (all caps) Use these attributes in addition to others shown above.
Enable or disable pagination. Options are YES or NO. (all caps)
Define the number of files shown per page.
Place a file list search form anywhere on your website. Use the permalink for the page where your file list to be searched is located. Note the code is eeSFLS for this instance.
Multi-Location List Customization
IMPORTANT – These attributes are only needed when
you have the same file list displayed in more than one place.
You can use these shortcode attributes to override the main list settings to customize the list for the secondary location.
Show or hide the File List. Options are YES, ADMIN, USER, or NO. (all caps)
Show or hide the Uploader. Options are YES, ADMIN, USER, or NO. (all caps)
Show or hide the file thumbnail column. Options are YES or NO. (all caps)
Show or hide the file date column. Options are YES or NO. (all caps)
Show or hide the file size column. Options are YES or NO. (all caps)
Show or hide the table header. Options are YES or NO. (all caps)
Show or hide the file actions links. Options are YES or NO. (all caps)
Specify a sort order for the file list. Note that for large file lists this can slow things down.
[eeSFL sortby="Name, Date, Size, or Random" sortorder="Descending or Ascending"]
IMPORTANT – Using the “sortby” or “sortorder” attributes will may slow file list load times because the plugin must process the entire file list array upon each file list page load.
