Hi,

Does your plugin support integration with the "Advanced custom fields pro" plugin?
We are using Advanced custom Fields to make our client an easy to understand builder for their pages.

Our client's want to upload and organise a lot of files in folders for visitors to download.
They want to be able to select a folder from a dropdown list and have all files they put in that folder be displayed as a basic list on front-end
(That would be a custom theme I understand).
Selection could be idem to how "post object" selection works in advanced custom fields. (see attachement)

If they add new files to the folder, they should be updated on the front-end as well.

Is that something that would be possible?
It would be a big pro for us to be able to advice it for our client.

Hi,

Thanks for contacting us here about this extension.

No at all, we don't support ACF.
Is that something that would be possible?

Our plugin is much more better, it supports insert category into a post/page.
You just insert a category one time and then it will be update automatically on your frontend if the new files will be added.

Hope it helps!

Hi,

It's confusing that you say you do not support ACF, because you clearly state so on the plugin homepage...
(See image attached) You're giving mixed signals now...

You're answer is still not clear to me on if we could implement it or not, so I'll rephrase my question:

We have a custom "pagebuilder" build with Advanced Custom Fields (flexible content blocks)
Our client might add a wysiwyg block, followed by a "Downloads" block.
In that downloads block they should be able to somehow select a folder from the folder structure they created on the server;
This could be done with a dropdown or a shortcode or .... I don't know. That's my question to you guys.
"How could we implement it in our pagebuilder in a user friendly way in which they can just point to a folder?" ...

The client might add multiple of those "Downloads" blocks on a single page, so just linking 1/more "category??" to a page is not an option I think.
It should be place-able within our blocks, one or more times per page.

Is that more clear?
Could you make a suggestion on what the possibilities are so we can inform our client to buy the plugin or not.
If it's not possible like that we'll just make a repeater field and be done with it.

Kind regards,
Oh

Hi,
Thanks for getting back to me with more information.
The acronym makes us misunderstand here. We support ACF but this (see the link below), not Advanced Custom Fields
https://ckeditor.com/docs/ckeditor4/latest/guide/dev_acf.html
Anyway, you can use shortcode for that purpose only.

Hope it helps!

Allright, that's good news!

What would such a shortcode look like? Does the plugin display them somewhere for easy copy pasting?
(Simple enough for our client to understand)

If not: I've been looking to your actions/hooks. Is there any hook to search for folders? (and get an folder ID or whatever is needed in your shortcode)
Then I could make our own custom field type in ACF where our client could search for folders, and generate the shortcode in backend.
That would be more user friendly for our client.

Hi,

We have shortcode for single files and category, for example:
- [wpfd_category id="16"]
- [wpfd_single_file id="19" catid="16" name="default-theme"]
I've been looking to your actions/hooks. Is there any hook to search for folders? (and get an folder ID or whatever is needed in your shortcode)

You can use ACF to list custom taxonomy, our taxonomy is wpfd-category.

Hope it helps!
Cheers,
