Easy to setup, great feature. If more custom layout, and simple list view will be great.

Seriously? Zero support for shortcodes in the free version? Sad. Very very sad. I've tested many dozens of plugins to specifically handle file/download management, some I've purchased the premium versions of after testing the free versions, many I've recommended to others, while many are strikingly similar some offer unique features or layouts that fit a specific need, so I have a number of them actively in use across hundreds of websites. THIS is the first one I've tested that doesn't offer the ability to use a shortcode - the most basic of tasks - into a page/post in the free version. If a plugin handles the basics very well, then upgrading to a premium version is something I am willing to do to get premium features. Using a shortcode is not a "premium" feature. I deleted this waste-of-space-here-in-the-repository plugin and will never, ever recommend this one to anyone.

This plugin is just perfect for creating a file directory in wordpress. I love all of the functions and how easy it to place a shortcode to each library where you want it. I bought the pro lifetime package and it was worth it.

I really like this plugin for file sharing. It has great options and works well. The front end uploader lets users send me files, and I can edit/review them on the back end before presenting them.

No drag and drop is an issue for upload. But the real problem is the lack of file security. The files are just open to the world, there is no file or directory level permissions to block public access!
