[cdm-project project=x date=1? order=x direction=x limit=x ]

This shortlink will display a unordered list of files, it is a basic html ul so you can use css to display it however you want.

This is a shortcode for premium members only, it displays the file list to the public. This shortcode lists all the files from all users.

Premium Users

*Premium users must have free + premium version installed. The premium extends the free version.


This could be one of two reasons, either you did not install theme my login or youre running wordpress in a directory in which you can go to settings and set the directory for wordpress.

This is usually because you are using a theme that converts new lines into paragraphs. To fix this wrap the short code in raw tags. Example: [raw][sp-client-document-manager] [/raw]

Sometimes plugins have conflicts, if you are experiencing any abnormal problems there could be a javascript error. Please download and install firebug to find the issue.

Imagemagick is a 3rd party plugin you are responsible for, it needs to be downloaded and installed on your server but more importantly, it needs to be compiled into php. Your server admin should be able to handle that, we do not support imagemagick installations.

Premium users must have free + premium version installed. The premium extends the free version. Once you install the free version you will see the tab, from there put in your serial code.

  • sp_cdm = You need this role to view the plugin, this is a very minimal role. You can view files, edit and delete.
  • sp_cdm_settings = edit settings as well as enable any premium plugin features (in the future we will break premium features into their own roles, just getting started here)
  • sp_cdm_vendors = Show vendors tab
  • sp_cdm_projects = Show projects tab
  • sp_cdm_uploader = Use the uploader (add files)

The premium version relies on common functions to operate, please activate the FREE version to fix this error. You must have both FREE and Premium plugins installed and activated.
