  • How can I change the email and billing information on my account?

    You can do that from the User Dashboard, just use the email you used for purchasing to log in / request a new password.

    Some but not all information can also be changed directly on the site where you have the plugin installed, from WP admin -> Shared Files -> Settings -> Account.

  • Where are the files actually stored on the server?

    When you install the plugin, a new directory (folder) by the name "shared-files" is automatically created under the uploads directory of your WordPress installation, typically the structure is wp-content/uploads/shared-files/. Each file is stored in that directory, or in a subdirectory under that.

    The public file URLs like /shared-files/12345/?example.pdf don't point to a actual directory path on the server. The plugin automatically detects a URL of that type, and the number 12345 is the file ID (post ID), which then points the plugin to the correct file. The filename (example.pdf) is used when the user downloads the file and saves it locally on their device.

  • Is it possible to upload more than one file at a time?

    There is a multi file uploader at WP admin / Shared Files ("Add Multiple Files" button) and also the front end uploader automatically accepts multiple files at once (available in all paid plans). You can also upload the files by FTP and then activate them for the plugin at WP admin / Shared Files / Sync Files.

  • Can I store the files outside WordPress installation directory (folder)?

    It's possible to create a symbolic link on the server under the shared-files directory that points to any location on the server. More information on this in the category edit view (the directory location is tied to a specific category).
