    how do you customiser the download page options. also is there any way to make the pdf preview play nice on iphone/ipad (size and screen position).

    1. Bhaldie Post author

      what page are yo referring to?

      I suggest using the Box preview if you are having difficulty with iphones/ipad

  2. Sheryl Grier

    Hi – I’m having the 404 page not found error after upload of document from front end button. I’ve tried the fix you suggest and the issue is still present. The problem is that my page is located at
    but the redirect after page load goes to

    I’d prefer not to edit my permalinks for all the pages on which I display the document archive, I’d rather that the redirect refresh the originall page with the correct permalink.

    How to prevent downloading files to unregistered users? What would the download be available after authorization? But file names were available.

  4. jason

    Can I submit a very important feature request?
    I am the only one who uploads files at this time. I have a pretty good idea where files are BUT if I forget the search results don’t tell me where the file is located in the folder hierarchy.
    It would be GREAT if the search result (MDOCS POST PAGE) listed the folder location of the file in MDOCS.

    i get an http 500 error when i trying to download an bigger ( 600 MB) file from mdocs (Frontend and adminpage)
    if i try a smaller one (100MB) it works very fine.

    any ideas?

    What it try is to change the filename an upload the big file again. – btw the upload is never a Problem.
    The configuration check is clean

    Dear Memphis Docs Devers,

    Great plugin, love it, and use it in my professional capacity all the time.

    I’m not sure where I can make a feature request but,

    Is it possible to hide a parent folder of the targeted sub folder in the front-end table? eg

    Backend I have the following structure:

    Parent Folder
    -Child Folder
    –Grand Child Folder
    –Grand Child Folder
    –Grand Child Folder

    Frontend I would like to have this structure (notice Parent Folder is not displayed because I am targeting Child Folder):

    -Child Folder
    –Grand Child Folder
    –Grand Child Folder
    –Grand Child Folder

    However I am rather presented with:

    Parent Folder
    -Child Folder
    –Grand Child Folder
    –Grand Child Folder
    –Grand Child Folder

    I hope I am making sense.


    1. Bhaldie Post author

      Yes it makes sense but unfortunately mDocs doesn’t work that way. You have the option of showing all folder or no folder that is it. I will add it to the feature list but can’t say when I will get around to implementing it.

  7. Steve

    After installing the plugin and uploading files, the page is not showing the names or descriptions of uploaded files. Using the short code [mdocs folder="mdocuments" hide_folder="false" sort_value="name" is_descending="false"]

    Any ideas?

    1. Bhaldie Post author

      Head to mDocs dashboard > Options > Settings > Document List Configuration and make sure you have “Name” and “Description” check “Show in Table”

      1. Nate

        I know that with us at least, it shows the file name, and the link but when attempting to access the file it returns an error message stating it can’t find it. We’ve tried checking for broken links, etc but that’s not the case. I’ve ended up having to re-upload all the documents into their folders. Also, when updating a document to a new version, it drops it into a parent folder instead of the designated folder it was already in and then becomes unmovable (doesn’t appear as an object that can be moved). Instead I have to delete the file and re-upload it. It’s very time consuming.

        1. Bhaldie Post author

          what version of mdocs are you using? These issue sound like old bugs that have been fixed many version ago.

          1. jason

            I know I am always on the current version. I haven’t had the same problem, but I also haven’t updated any other plugin. I believe it is a conflict with another plugin that was updating. Everytime I rolled restored the backup I was trying to keep track of which other plugins were updating. If I narrow it down I will let you know. So far it hasn’t happened in almost a month, so that’s good. Also hasn’t happened since WP 5.0.

          2. jason

            How can I restore a mdocs-files.bak? It appears the mdocs-cats table is corrupting.
            right now I have all of these unchecked:
            Bootstrap – Frontend
            Bootstrap – Dashboard
            Bootstrap Dropdown Fix

          3. Bhaldie Post author

            the backup is only files, there is no category backup. the only thing you can try is to Options > Restore to Default and keep the “Keep all files, post, and categories.”

            Why are you unchecking all third party applications, they are required for mDocs to work the only reason to uncheck all of these is if you already have them install using another plugin or theme.

  8. Pete Moles


    This plugin is great, exactly what I’m looking for, but the ‘file options’ menu is always displayed. Is there a way to remove this and only have the menu display when the document is selected?

    Thanks in advance,

    1. Bhaldie Post author

      hmm, the dropdown menu is only suppose to appear when you left click on the file name. you may have some css issues with your theme and mDocs. Can you open the browser inspector and see if there is any errors.

    1. Bhaldie Post author

      thanks for the feature request. I will add it to the list. For now you can use the Batch Move functionality to achieve what you want.

  9. Jason

    I cannot get the frontend upload to upload anywhere but the general folder. Here is my shortcode

    [mdocs_upload_btn hide_all=true folder_edit=false folder="Quarterly Inspections" ]
    [mdocs cat="Quarterly Inspections"]

      1. Jason

        It’s still not changing the default folder location. i have tried several folders but it only is set to GENERAL which is my main folder (top root). Any suggestions?

          1. Bhaldie Post author

            Yes I have found the bug you are referring to, I hope to have a solution soon and have a new version out asap.

  10. Jason

    Just two helpful bugs I found.

    You have a typo on the help page and there is a width formatting error on the frontend uploader.

    typo on this page – for “dsecription_hide” > DESCRIPTION_HIDE

    50% screen width shows TITLE above text box (RIGHT)

    100% screen width shows TITLE at top right of window (WRONG)

        1. Bhaldie Post author

          thanks for the feature request. I will add it to the list. For now you can use the Batch Move functionality to achieve what you want.
          sorry wrong thread.

          Okay i’ve got it now. I don’t know why you don’t get notifications maybe my mail server is not running correctly.

          As for you problem, it looks like a style issue. Using the generate WordPress theme the Title alignment is correct. I you site public if so I could take a look and see what the issue in the style is.

  11. Jason

    I have one folder that is giving me a HTTP ERROR 500 when loading from backend “/wp-admin/admin.php?page=memphis-documents.php&mdocs-cat=mdocs-cat-107” or the frontend “/documents/?mdocs-cat=mdocs-cat-107”

    I also had an issue Monday that required me to restore the whole wordpress from backup. It was only showing the main General folder and no other folders in the navigation on the frontend and backend.

    1. Bhaldie Post author

      500 errors are very trick to debug. They are based on server issues typically. Can you goto your server logs and see if you have any more details for the 500 error.

  12. Louise van der bijl

    Hi Bhaldie. I could only donate ten dollars this month. Next month will be more and then set up a monthly donation, could have saved me!

      In a nutshell I have text in mdocs saved variable that need to be translated some how. So I created a function that keeps a list of all those text values so they can be translated into different languages.

      Hope this helps.

    When searching the front end for a file it doesn’t show me where in MDocs the file is located. As I add more files it is becoming very hard to find a file in the file structure based on the search from the front end. Would it be possible to add some hiearchy to he MDocs post page to show where the file is located in the MDocs folder structure?

      Yes, this as been mentioned before. It is a feature request and I hope to have a solution soon. Thanks again for the report.

    Awesome on the search for this last update (v3.8.4). I am using WP User Role Editor and I want to create a role that would allow batch upload and folder edit but I have to allow “manage_options” which allows to much access to the rest of the site. Is there a way to allow that capability aside from the rest of wordpress?

    Again, thank you for being so responsive. You have earned yourself a monthly donation from me.

      You could edit my code to change the capability type that gives access to those areas. But the best solution is for me to create a more flexible role manage system. I will have to think about it but for now editing my code is the only way.
