Drag and drop multiple files
You can bulk select and drag & drop many files at once to put them in a destination folder. Folders can be bulk selected as well.
Remember recently opened folder
CatFolders comes with a variety of options to decide which folder to be opened on your first visit. You can choose to get back to your most recent folder, or always back to a specific folder, such as “Uncategorized” or “All files.”
Collapsible folder sidebar
The sidebar reserved for the folder tree can be collapsed so that you can have the full screen view of WP media library when needed.
Upload files to a specific folder
Enhanced media library uploader allows you to choose a folder first, and then upload multiple files from your computer to that folder.
Works with Grid & List view
All files in a selected folder are sortable in list mode, which means you can easily sort your file list by file name, author, date, and custom post type where they are uploaded to.
In grid mode, CatFolders works great both in the media library and in the page/post editor. This helps you choose the media files you need for the work-in-progress content much faster than working with an unorganized media library.
😻 WHAT’S THERE IN WP MEDIA FOLDERS PRO?
Advanced sort options
Once upgraded, you will be able to sort files by file name, created date, modified date, author, newest or oldest, etc. Whether you want to sort files and folders by default, or temporarily, there’s always a sorting method for you.
Each subfolder is a child of the parent folder that is above it. With CatFolders Pro, a main folder can hold unlimited subfolders. The parent/child analogy helps you organize your files more efficiently. It’s very easy to hide or show all folders below the selected folder.
Folder access permissions
Enable global folder structure where everyone sees the same categorization, or set folder permissions based on user roles. Access permissions include add new, view, and edit folders. Recommended for multi-author blogs, multi-vendor marketplace websites, and ecommerce businesses.
