Flmngr file manager

File Manager is a must-have add-on for TinyMCE, CKEditor and N1ED if you create content that’s heavy on images and embedded files. Making things a lot simpler, it turns uploading, sorting and managing files to much more efficient processes. Hence, allowing you to focus on creating content rather than on shipping files to it.

File Manager works as a combination of the Flmngr add-on and the server part installed to PHP, Node.js or Java environment, either coupled with N1ED editor or individually.

Why File Manager is a must for content-editing?

Safe uploading

One file or hundreds – File Manager remains safe and sound providing transparent uploading process that is backed up by the special folder created just for that. That is, if uploading fails for some reason, no published files on the server are damaged.

Effortless structuring

When working with image-heavy websites, structuring is a good way to ensure that every page displays proper images and those images are the most up-to-date. With File Manager you can organize your uploads into folders, and even download entire folders as ZIP files.

Seamless integration

With or without N1ED installed, File Manager seamlessly blends with CKEditor or TinyMCE, so whenever you click Browse it pops up and offers an easy way to add non-text content to the edited page.
