Info About This Plugin:
I wanted to be able to upload files and add them to my posts with either links, popup links, or just put them in the post. I’ve looked around at all the different blogging systems out there and didn’t find one that really did a great job at it! Once I found WordPress, I was happy with there system overall, but still needed this feature. I looked for a plugin that would go the job, but all of the plugins that I found had problems with them: Only supports Images, Doesn’t work at all or well, and just didn’t add file to the post. Well I set out to create the plugin of MY dreams and it has come to be LMB^Box FilePress!
LMB^Box FilePress is able to upload files to your blog and allows you options to add the file to your post. There is a button added to the Quicktags Toolbar in the Admin Write Pages: FilePress. You use this button to popup a new window to browse, upload, and manage all of you files. LMB^Box FilePress allow you to add your files to your posts by selecting how you want to display the file and then click “Add File to Post!” which will add all the code needed directly to your post’s content. Now, when I say “file(s)” I don’t just mean some file types like just Images, I mean WHAT EVER YOU WANT! You set which file types to you want to allow and the max file size for all files along with all other settings for LMB^Box FilePress, in your Admin Panel on the LMB^Box FilePress and Miscellaneous Options Pages. LMB^Box FilePress will try to make thumbnails of all Images that you upload and use it to show you what the image file is. If FilePress can’t make the thumbnail for an Image or the file isn’t an Image, it will use a file type default thumbnail image for file display.
To install LMB^Box FilePress read the readme.txt file or :
1. Copy the folder lmbbox-filepress into your wp-content/plugins directory
2. Copy the “files” folder to your wp-content/ directory
2.1 You will need to create a folder on your server where all the files will be uploaded to and set the permissions to 777 (full access). By default, the folder is called files and is in your wp-content/ directory.
3. Activate this plugin in the WordPress Admin Panel
4. Go to your Options -> LMB^Box FilePress Page and make sure to check and set all settings correctly.
I have just updated my LMB^Box FilePress plugin to version 1.0 Beta! Ok … FINIALLY I’m proud to announce that the next release of LMB^Box FilePress is here! After a terrible incident, I was able to recover / rewrite what was lost and continue on developing FilePress to what it is now. The layout / control page is completely redesigned from the previous release and I’ll be making more design changes for the next release! Most of the big / basic features are finished but a few are still not finished (eg. Move / Copy Folders and Files). The documentation is still sparce but that’s because I’ve been putting all my free time into finishing up this release. I’ve also started to implement localization for FilePress! Currently there is only English, but I will be adding rough translations for some other languages. The next release most likely wont be for quite awhile because of my lack of free time, but I’m planning on keeping up development for FilePress. This is from the readme.txt file in the Change Log section for 1.0 Beta:
