WP Documents Library


This plugin is made with the idea of having a \”Document Manager\” for which we use: custom post types, taxonomies and tags. To view a list of titles and thematics two pages protected with a password are created.

This plugin creates the \”Documents\” page to see a list of the titles of all the Documents and also create the \”Thematics\” page to view the list of Documents through the categories.

You can change the name of these pages but \”ALERT\” do not modify your SLUG (permalink | enlace permanente).

The plugin creates an \”Uncategorized\” thematic and a \”Document\” tag. To obtain better search results you must add in categories the categories you think appropriate and the same in Tags.

The images and documents must be uploaded to the Library and in the Details Documents entry set the URL that corresponds to each one.

The size of the images is set to 150 px. (You can upload them larger but they will be reduced automatically).

If the list of Documents is not visible, go to \”Settings / Permalinks\” and click on \”Save Changes\”.

If in the list of Documents there are titles like: Auto Draft, the solution to eliminate these results is to install the Plugin \”WP-Sweep\” (https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-sweep/) activate and run the plugin. This plugin cleans the database.

To protect your Documents we recommend using the \”Members\” plugin (https://wordpress.org/plugins/members/)

It just does what it says, super simple and effective. I like it a LOT. You can list the documents all together, you can list the taxonomies and click them and see all the docs related. As a feature to have, it may be useful to have any list with the option to expand with all the doc titles or something like that, not that you have to click to see it. And also the list by tags. Me encanta! Gracias!!

I took a gamble on this plugin. I've tried a ton of others, all different, to create a PDF documents library and nothing was what I needed. The other free one wouldn't let you add authors who weren't members, things like that. I couldn't find anything! This plugin is new, has no reviews, and hardly anyone using it. AND IT IS THE BEST. Thank you!! Exactly what I needed! I'm so happy! Keep developing and keep working on this because I'm about to add a ton of documents and I'll need this plugin to continue being developed!
