Hi, I had tried this plugin some time ago and I remember that i had difficulties with category management. But I liked this plugin and I hope something is changed.

Example:

i have category hierarchy:

-Category_1
- Category_1.1
--- Category_1.1.1
--- Category_1.1.2
- Category_1.2
-Category_2
- Category_2.1
- Category_2.2

Now, i remember that:

1) is not possible to bulk assign multicategory to multiple file. Right?

2) if i insert category visualization, is there a way to directly list display all files (category + subcategory etc ..). i remember that if i display a category i see only files in this category and the subcategory folders but not directly files into subcategory. Right?
Example: i want to list simultaneusly all files in category "Category_1.1" and subcategorys . is possible?

3) is possible to display at the same time files from different category? Example: list files from category "Category_1.1.1" and "Category_2.1". This is a feauture that i use a lot with another File Download Manager plugin and I couldn't do it with WP File Download.

Thanks and i hope that i'm wrong;)

These are something not possible in our plugin presently, you can show all files with predefined ordering using Shortcode generator.
Or you can insert shortcode of each category in your content.


Hope this helps!

ok, but here talk about single file. If i select multiple files into a category (ctrl+click on each file) can i set multiple category? i remember that the option disappear.

ok, looking at documentation at 4. Add a category in your content there is the example: [wpfd_category id="146"]
so, if i understand right, now i can use this shortcode for multicategory? example: [wpfd_category id="146,147,148"]

Thanks, Carlo
