Vanliga frågor

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.

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
