To add a new document click on “Add Document”. This will take you to Add New Document page where you can give this document a title and upload it to WordPress. You can also choose a workflow state from the Workflow State drop down menu. By default you have initial draft, in progress, final and under review states. You can assign the ownership of the document to any other user in your WordPress. The default publish status of a new document is “Privately Published”, which means that the document is available for other users in your system. You can also make a document password protected or make it publicly available on the front end of your website.

How to Create a WordPress File Manager
Marlana Peralta

Hi
Is there a method of having the table display a column which always has the same text in it (for example “Download”) and that text is automatically made to be a link directly to the file url? The reason for this is to avoid the end users having to get the id from the post url and then create the link to file manually as is shown in the video? This works fine for users who have some knowledge but my aim is to create the Download library such that the users who will be managing it can just upload the new file along with a title and description that the site takes care of the rest?
I have tried to achieve this using another extension (“Page Links To”) which does work and makes it a bit easier – but it still requires the user to upload the file and then to copy the file url to the “Page Links To”field.
I have also tried using the Pods extension method as well.
Thanks very much
