File Manager for WordPress

As you know, WordPress lets you upload media files, but other than that there’s no built-in way to handle other files that might be part of your site. So nearly everyone has to use FTP at some point. We recently found an old plugin designed for WordPress 1.5 that adds file management capabilities. However, being as old as it was, it needed some considerable work.

We modified the plugin to include better security, support for role-level access, and support to restrict which directories can be accessed with the tool. It works inside the admin interface and lets you browse, create, and delete directories and files, as well upload and download files. Overall it’s a pretty good tool.
