FileBird – WordPress Media Library Folders & File Manager


FileBird is a media file manager plugin to help you organize WordPress media library folders by drag and drop.

It allows you to create virtual folders to contain your WordPress media library. So when you move files and folders, that won’t break permalinks to your images in the content.

With FileBird Pro you can save time on WP media management, search for any file & folder, sort them out, add folder gallery, etc. That’s a great way to improve your admin workflow and productivity.

¿Eres administrador de una web WordPress?

Managing a WordPress site means that you’ll be adding tons of multi-media files such as images, videos, audios, documents, etc., into your WP media library.

As a result, your library has to store thousands of files and could become a total mess. WordPress default file name search function is a good thing but it will never match the ease of going directly to a folder. That’s when FileBird comes in to help with managing files in WordPress!

This media file manager gives you the ability to easily organize all files by drag and drop between folders. With FileBird in hand, things will be a lot better than they were.

The best thing about a folder-based structure is it makes it very easy to find the files you need and saves you so much time.

You won’t see WordPress media library not loading, as FileBird smart-loads one folder at a time.

🚀 Tips to manage WP media folders like a pro with FileBird

  • Give files and folders logical, specific names
  • Nest folders within parent folders
  • Resize the left sidebar to get an overview of all folders
  • Upload files to a specific folder by choosing the folder from the drop-down
  • Easily search for the name of file/folder right on the sidebar
  • From the page/post composer, browse files and folders in the FileBird UI
  • Use FileBird block gallery to insert multiple media files in a page, post, and custom post type

Installed it on first project and really loved it from the beginning! The user UI is so simple I even think basic user will be using it without any help from us - web developers and site admins. Will be buying PRO version of this plugin, mainly because of folder limit but also to support this awesome work, this plugin, its really worth it! Thanks FileBird team And I also wanted to mention that it was a little bit harder to figure out how to use some-kind of API, still didn't figured out the Basic authentication but it even doesn't really matter. Because I'm new to WordPress I didn't knew you store data in database.. wow, really unexpected (irony). So after looking up on the simple and really intuitive basic tables structure I used WPquery and created 'own api way' 🙂 But I was little sad you didn't have any written PHP API way. 🙁

Mixed content "Not Secure" message on site was pointing towards Filebird, which is a brilliant addition to Media Library in WordPress. The error was not Filebird after all, proved this by disabling the plugin. 5 star for the Support Team for Filebird who suggested "Really Simple SSL" which sorted the problem entirely.

Very reliable, this plugin helps really with media library with A LOT of files! Maybe should be faster when loading folders, but is good enough to put in production. Now I'm looking for a media deduplicate plugins that move references too, to better reorganize my library!
