Outstanding support

Big Thank You! to BannerSky for their support today. Issue resolved within one hour.
Great product and great service. Well Done!

Good plugin and helpful support

I use this software for a couple of clients (Parish Councils) and it’s a good piece of software. I had a minor issue with the latest v2.0 but support were quick to respond and help me solve the problem.


Saved us so much pain

We are a development house. We needed a simple solution for brochure management which is easy for the customer to control. 2 of us were searching and searching for a solution and could not find anything. We found this plugin and once installed immediately knew it was going to work.

The addon itself is really easy to use and is not complicated to navigate at all. The price is also a massive bonus. 25 dollars for a multi site licence is great value, especially compared to other addons which were hundreds for 5 sites.

Would be very happy to recommend this to anybody!

This Plugin Made My Life Easier

Assignment: show PDFs of a certain category on a department page – but in a way that clients with department page access could not mangle. I combined BSK PDF Manager with a Pods related field, and just like that, problem solved. Wrote with a question (how to open PDFs in a new window) and got an answer within a half hour (add “target=”_blank” to the shortcode). Nice plugin and support!

Simple and Effective way to upload and display PDF documents by category

I wanted a replacement for wp-filebase. I just needed something to upload PDF documents, assign a category, and then display some or all of the documents in a category on my pages in either alphabetical or date order and this plugin fits the bill perfectly. Looked at various other solutions but found them to be much too complex for my requirements
