Feel free to add a comments below, I will answer as soon as possible.
Is it possible to add a file from my existing media library instead of uploading to mdocs ?
no mdocs only handles new uploads.
I am liking the plugin. Having an issue with the preview menu item. The preview works fine from within the admin part of wordpress but when I go out of that and go to the website itself…the screen turns grey (opaque) and the documents is shifted partially off screen and I can’t see it. The is behind the grey opaque screen. I tried FF, Chrome, and on my phone (Chrome) all with the same results. Thanks…
its a style issue with your theme, try opening a browser inspector and see if you can located where your themes css is pushing the preview off the page.
I’ve turned the posts off as we already have a blog page and the posts are getting mixed up with that. Please can you advise how I can have a page for just the documents on the website? This can either be by showing the posts (on a different page to our blog posts) or just having the list format visible to end users.
to add the documents list to any page just add the shortcode [mdocs]
I use that nice pluggin to expose a lot of legal texts on a private web site. I had suggested on the forum to allow members with special roles to upload document. Thus, I see in the options/seting of the pluggin there is a section about this : “Allowed to Upload”. Can you explain how to use it ? Overall, where can I found a documentation, like a user manual, about the pluggin. Is the shortcode list provided on the menu ‘Option’ is complete ?
Thanks for this usefull pluggin.
I have no documentation for mdocs. But I do answer all questions asked.
As for allow to upload it is exactly as you would think. For example if you give editors the ability to upload they will see the Memphis Doc link in the dashboard and will be allow to upload files. They will own the files they upload and have the same abilities as an administrator do to alter those files.
I updated to the latest version of Memphis Docs and now all documents located inside of sub folders are not visible on the user side of the website. When do a search, I receive an error message of “Sorry you can’t see this Memphis Documents file you don’t have the proper permission.”. I am the administrator, running on WordPress 4.9.1.
If I change the files out of the subfolders, they become visible. Can you please let me know if a setting needs to be updated or if this is a known issue being worked on?
Thanks for your help!
sounds like a bug, folders do not have permissions on them. Can you open the batch editor and make sure all the files are set to public then press the save button. Sometime this helps.
I have installed the plugin v3.7.3 and when I try to add an attachment the page of New Document is alway Loading and the submit button is empty. How can I fix it?? I have installed my wordpress site localhost with xampp.
Thanks a lot
Great plugin in theory, but I can’t figure how to use it. Any manuals I can read online please?
I basically want to make a ‘gallery’ of images, where if one is click on, it downloads the powerpoint file. So I’m hoping Memphis makes a thumbnail too for the gallery.
And so I can upload, say, 100 files, and then view a gallery of 100 JPG images, and a user clicks one and a PowerPoint file is downloaded.
mDocs can’t do what you want it to do. It will list your pdf is a list or on a post page buy not in a gallery view.
Thank you for the great plugin. Have all the features I’m looking for. I have used it in the localhost and it was working well (ver 3.7) during september now I am getting an error in the console ‘Uncaught SyntaxError: Invalid hexadecimal escape sequence’, when I tried to test in the uat site. Hope you have received the same error report earlier. Thank you for the support in advance
Yes I have had reports with that error. I am investigating but having found a solution yet.
Can you also tell me what a uat site is?
Hello, im need some assistance. iIm trying to upload a file to Memphis (a 3.3mb PDF) but it returns with the following error:
Memphis Error: The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini
Please can you advise
You will need access to your servers php.ini file in that file there is a variable call upload_max_filesize you will need to change that to a larger number in order to upload big files.

I love your plug-in! It totally makes you king of this at least!
Our student society needed a tool for creating a sort of database with old notes from courses, solution examples for example problems etc. A sort of study-database to help eachother out that needed to be available for members only. Memphis Docs is purrfect for this! It works like a charm!
We have however come across an issue. We also use it for posting meeting-reports that we store in a different mainfolder. Here’s the problem; the choice to hide files is binary – all or nothing. We would prefer our meeting-reports to be public though, for the sake of transparency.
It would be beyond awesome if one could have the choise to hide files in a specific category or even better; the files in a specific main folder(-s).
I hope this isn’t to tall an order! We really appreciate yur work!
Individual files can be hidden or public and downloadable by non members.
If you goto a file list and check the checkbox beside the word “Name” then goto the to menu and click batch edit you can see all the options for a single file.
So for your example I would keep the minutes the same open to the public, but I would change the rights for the other files to members only download.
Thanks for the fix! It’s not the most convenient one since we’re talking 150-200 files that need hiding. But it’ll have to do since your plug-in is the only one worth having for this particular function as far as I could find.
Have a nice one!
… sorry for spamming. I meant to add…
That’s why I suggested that one might be able to make the choice for entire folders under ‘Settings’. It would be much more user friendly when dealing with larger numbers of files.
Thanks again for your swift support!
I will add that option to the feature request list. Thanks for the suggestion 🙂
I’m praying you can help me. When I try to upload a document to a file folder that I created, I get a “Loading” comment and what should be the ‘save’ button at the buttom doesn’t show up. Even if I click on it, the document doesn’t upload or save to the directory. In console I get this error ‘Invalid hexadecimal escape sequence’. Any suggestions? I have the latest version of the plugin running 3.7.3, and I dont’ have any interfering plugins.
I have seen this error twice now and I can’t explain it yet. What I have found is that potential in a post submit there is a escape character in the link. Some like a “\n”, “\x”, “\r” etc etc. I haven’t been able to isolate this issue yet but I am looking into it.
Q. Can we use Google Drive as a storage for our PDF files?
No mdocs only stores files locally on your server.
