Is FileBird really required for this plugin?

Yes, it is. You should have FileBird (Free or Pro, version 5+) installed and activated in advance so that you can use the FileBird document library Gutenberg block feature.

When I move a document file to another folder, does this action affect the document gallery?

Yes, if you move/remove/add new files to your FileBird folders, it will also reflect on the front page/post of document gallery.

Does it work with Elementor?

Definitely yes! To make FileBird Document Library work with Elementor, just create a shortcode for your document library, and then embed it into Elementor page builder.

Отличный плагин для библиотеки документов. Лучший из всех подобных плагинов. Очень простой, никаких сложностей не вызывает при использовании. Практически все настройки можно сделать через CSS. Команда техподдержки работает отлично и все вопросы решает очень быстро. Спасибо команде техподдержки и удачи.

I think this is one of the best document library plugins out there. However, there could be some improvements It’ great that you can drag and order files in FileBird. Why isn’t one of the ordering options to be the sort order in filebird? Would be great to have fine tune control of the UI. Ie… show/hide Title, show/hide the toolbar under the title. For some reason “file size” column doesn’t display anything. Would be great to show/hide that as well 🙂

The FileBird Doc library has solved all my issues with sorting and displaying results and all sorts of documents for the members in my club. Super easy to work with. And finally, the support from the Ninja Team – the best ever!

I really like this plugin. But it will be a great addition to have the thumbnails displayed (optionally) if the files are images. It helps a lot. I do have this plugin to create stock images of my products to other retailers. And the names of the files don’t give a real description to the images (even if i try) So it will be great to have the thumbnails displayed on both grid and list layouts
