The best document library in WordPress 🕹️

Filr is constantly updated with new features. Here are just some of them.

Easy Folder Management

Manage your WordPress files within folders and get maximum control of how files are displayed and structured within the document library.

Include External Files

Add external files to your document library with ease. Change the file mode, paste the external URL, and Filr handles the rest.

Frontend uploader

Let users upload files directly from the frontend of your WordPress website. Customize the uploader, limit by user role or email, and more.

Expire by date

With Filr you can let files expire by a certain date. Set an end date and let Filr manage the tracking and expiration for you by using WP-Cron to be always on time.

Expire by downloads

Set files to expire after a certain number of downloads with Filr. An indicator in the file overview shows you the remaining downloads so you can easily keep track.

Secure URLs

Use secure and encrypted file URLs to prevent any abuse of your documents and files. Filr uses PHP to always check all permissions and restrictions before allowing the download.

ZIP File Generation

Filr automatically creates a zip file and generates a matching download link for you when you upload multiple files at once.

Restrict by Username and Role

You can restrict access to a username or entire user role directly within a file. Users will only see the files you want them to see.

Directory Protection

Simple and reliable protection for your download directory. Global and per download – there’s no way around the protection.

File Cleaner

An automatic file cleaner makes sure that only your desired files are in your directory. It checks the status every time you edit, open, or modify a file.

Library Customization

Customize the document library shortcode within Filr’s settings. Add columns, disable them, and reorder them.

User Friendly

Filr is searchable, so you can let users search, sort, and filter within your document library. Responsive design to look awesome on any device.

I spent a very long time trying to find a plugin to provide pdf download protection – and this is absolutely perfect. It’s got a very nice design – which I’ve been able to customize to fit well with the site colours and it’s very intuitive to use. Really great – thanks! Andrew
