As announced last week, GD Press Tools Pro 4.0 is coming soon with many improvements and new features. And one of the major new features is simple File Manager that will allow you easy browsing, editing, deleting, uploading files in your WordPress installation.

How the File Manager looks, you can see on the image bellow that shows quick navigation and breadcrumbs navigation on top, with buttons for upload and folder creation on the right. Grid displays all files and folders with file sizes, options and extension. When completed, grid will display CHMOD value, and will have checkboxes to allow deleting of multiple files and changing CHMOD.

  1. There is major risk with security with the file manager embedded in WP admin?

      Only admins will be able to use it (in multisite/network mode, only super admins), all operations will be nonce protected and there will be global constant and options to disable it. Also, it’s a panel in admin so it can’t be accessed from the outside. If anyone has some other method that can be used to protect it, please leave comment.
