Show or hide the Uploader. Options are YES, ADMIN, USER, or NO. (all caps)

[eeSFL allowuploads="ADMIN"]

Show or hide the file thumbnail column. Options are YES or NO. (all caps)

[eeSFL showthumb="YES"]

Folder Support Shortcode (Add-On)

Specify the Folder. Folder Path from Main List (case-sensitive)

  1. Hi Mitch i purchased your plugin addon for folder management, could i add some tags to file searhable on search engines?
    Thank you .

    • The easiest way to create complex shortcodes is to go to the Instructions tab in the plugin settings. Use the shortcode builder to pick-and-choose the options you need. Then you can copy-and-paste the code, or choose to create a new page/post using it.

    • Yes, you can make multiple lists if you add the folder extension. Each sub-folder can then be displayed wherever you like using the shortcode like so: [eeSFL showfolder="This-Folder"], or [eeSFL showfolder="This-Folder/This-Sub-Folder"]

      Items kept above the chosen folder are not accessible from the front-end of the site, so you can have both public and private files.

    • Hello. The Search & Pagination extension has not been released yet, but I hope to have it published this week. Look for an update to Simple File List soon.
