What The File is a simple, lightweight, and easy to set up plugin that crawls the file system of your WordPress website, detects all files published, and notifies you with a short report on their location, type, and size.

What The File is an advanced search and file management system for WordPress. It includes:

  • an off-site and secure backup of your files (hosted on Amazon S3)
  • a basic version control system
  • revision history
  • file versioning
  • auto-upload of revisions when publishing posts and pages, image resizing

It also allows other developers to extend its functionality through the plugin API. This plugin allows anyone to upload files directly to your server with standard HTML post requests.

The requests go through the same process as what occurs when uploading via an ajax media uploader, with the exception of it being done via a standard HTML file input rather than handling your data through JavaScript.

How does it work?

The What The File WordPress plugin allows you to retrieve the file size, type, and last modification date of images hosted on your blog. You can choose where it displays, or even create a shortcode for easy inclusion in any post or page.

This WordPress Plugin allows you to change file permissions on the fly, delete and compress files. Supports video, music, picture, and document files. Creates file backups before deleting a file or moving it to another directory.

Has a special “Mass Rename” feature that enables you to filter and rename thousands of files. Mass Rename is a file upload tool that lets you easily rename the files on a post or page in WordPress.
