WP File Download WooCommerce Integration

Limit download access, file visibility and file management

When you manage files, you will always need to setup file access for users and it's always complex to do so. In WP File Download, we've included smart tools to manage file visibility and file management actions. Define who is allowed to download or update a file, delete a file, edit only his own files and more. Furthermore, it's possible to restrict the access to a file or a file category to some WordPress users only.

Setup each action a user in a WordPress user role is allowed to perform

File download visibility

For each file category, define what will be visible or downloadable

Permission by user

In each file category or single file, define an owner that is allowed to perform some specific actions

A powerful yet easy to use WordPress download manager

We mean it - the download manager is straightforward to use. It's essentially like managing files on your desktop file browser. For example, you can change the order and levels of file categories with drag'n drop as well as order files. And everything is saved with AJAX - on the fly. Adding new files? Just drag'n drop one or multiple files, no matter the file size.

Move or duplicate files? It's a piece of cake. Drag'n drop files or use the right-click to copy, cut, paste one or several files at the same time.

WP File Download plugin additional features

Editing the same file multiple times because it's located in several file categories is a waste of time. WP File Download’s alternative is to have a single master file, made available in multiple categories.

Once a file is updated (or replaced), the old version is automatically stored in the file history. The old version can be restored with one click and you can specify the maximum number of old versions to store

You can literally track who is downloading what and get the results as a statistics table and chart you can even export. This is pretty useful when file downloading requires a user account

Let your users download several files at a time, based on their custom selection. Then, a .zip is automatically generated. You can also add a button to download a complete file category with a single click
