New version, 3.1.0 and minor update 3.1.1, of WordPress File Upload plugin have just been released.
This is a significant version release because in continuation of the previous major version 3 release it includes file browsing capabilities for all users, depending of course on administrator selection. This version introduces a new shortcode, [wordpress_file_upload_browser], which when added in a page or post, displays a list of uploaded files for the current user, as shown below:
The new shortcode comes with many options, so that administrators can:
- define which users and user roles are allowed to view the file list
- define which columns will be shown in the file list and their order
- define if users are allowed to download and/or delete their uploaded files
- define if the file list is sortable
- define titles of the columns of the file list
Of course, the new shortcode can be edited easily using the Shortcode Composer, as happens with the basic uploader shortcode:
Moreover, this version incorporates some minor bug fixes. Please note that this article has been updated to mention also version 3.1.1, which only contains some minor fixes of version 3.1.0.
You can view a detailed list of the attributes of the new shortcode in the plugin’s support page in File List Attributes section.
