Upload Settings

File Upload Display

Display the uploader to everyone, just to logged in users, just to administrators or to nobody.

Upload Directory

This is relative to your WordPress home folder. The default location is wp-content/uploads/simple-file-list/ , but you can change this. Changing the path will create a new directory if it does not yet exist.

Upload Limit

You can limit the number of files that can be uploaded per submission.

Maximum File Size

You can limit the size of the file to be uploaded. Your hosting limits the maximum file upload size to 256 MB.

File Types

Restrict the types of files that can be uploaded. Only accept the file types you absolutely need. Here is a list of some common types:

gif, jpg, jpeg, png, tif, pdf, wav, wmv, wma, avi, mov, mp4, m4v, mp3

Certain possibly dangerous file types are always blocked from uploads.

    • The maximum upload size is determined by both PHP’s upload_max_size and post_max_size. The plugin will use the lesser of the two. Check to be sure both settings are adequate for your needs.

    • A logged in user is any user which appears on the main User’s page, and is logged in. You can also use the Password Protect feature built into WordPress to control access to the file upload page for non-Wordpress users. Choose “Anyone Can Upload” within the File Upload settings to in that case.
