GD Press Tools Pro 4.0 is some 3 weeks away from release, and there are many new, interesting and useful features. I have already written about File Manager that will be part of the plugin, and here is more info about it including image of the editor that will be part of the manager.

File Editor
File Editor

File Manager will allow editing of some file types: text, css, php, js… Editor is simple, no highlighting, just edit and save.

But, most important thing is info about security concerns with using file manager. File Manager panel will be available only to administrators. In multisite environment, only super admins will be able to use it. Also, there will be additional methods of protecting access to it. All, operations and links on manager will be protected with nonce strings. And there will be a PHP constant to completely disable and hide File Manager. Also, manager will allow only browsing of the WordPress installation, you will not be able to go under that folder and browse server content outside of it.

If you have any more suggestions for File Manager and improving it’s security please leave a comment here or in the forum.
