File Manager Add-on

“Navigate, manage and use your files directly in the editor!”

Manage a complete file library directly in your Advanced HTML Editor 3? It's now possible with the File Manager Add-on, which allows you and your users to upload, delete, rename, download files and folders with few mouse clicks.

Drag one or many files from your personal folders and drop to upload them automatically into the manager (Firefox & Chrome) and if you choose to show thumbnails for the images, the File Manager will generate a small thumbnail preview server side on the fly.

The File Manager Add-on is fully secured and the file views load mighty fast due to to extensive usage of Ajax technology and CSS Sprites, and the amazing integration with the Advanced HTML Editor 3, which even matches the skin and style.

The Add-on requires Advanced HTML Editor 3 and you need to have Pure PHP Upload 3 or Pure ASP Upload 3 extension in order to upload files to the File Manager.
