Organize your WordPress Media Files & Post Types like a Pro.

- Highest Rated Media Manager Plugin -

Tested for 5 mins, then purchased the Pro.

“Our test site had 800+ images, and by using this plugin, it was ridiculously quick to organise them without the default media gallery slowdown. Was genuinely surprised how quick it is, and was expecting a major slow down or lag. If you are a dev, its a no brainer to purchase the Pro version with lifetime license.” – @killerbeez

What Others Say About HappyFiles

Oh my goodness, HappyFiles is going to completely transform the way I handle information in WordPress. I set out to find a powerful media gallery plugin and ended up with something far better. The categorisation of post types is revolutionary! This is going to help so much.
HappyFiles is a great tool to have when developing websites for clients that have a lot of media files to manage. It is simple to use, and it is a wonderful companion to Beaver Builder.
This is the plug in I have been looking for. Simple intuitive interface, small footprint and works with my page builder. This should be core functionality!
Excellent media management plugin. Plus a very good price. The developer is very attentive to requests and the support is excellent.

How do I remove a category from an item?

Simply drag and drop the item into the “All Categories” or “Uncategorised” folder ๐Ÿ˜‰

How can I create an image gallery from my categories?
HappyFiles shortcode & Gutenberg block

You can create dynamic image galleries from your HappyFiles categories via the “HappyFiles Gallery” Gutenberg block or the HappyFiles shortcode.

The happyfiles_gallery shortcode has the following parameters:

  • categories: comma separated list of category names, slugs, or IDs (recommended to use IDs as they don’t change)
  • max: Specify the max. number of images you want to show (default: shows all images)
  • columns: Number of columns of your gallery (1 – 6)
  • orderBy: date (default), none, ID, author, name, title, type, modified, rand
  • order: ASC (ascending), DESC (descending)
  • imageSize: thumbnail, medium, large, full
  • linkTo: attachment, media, none (default)
  • includeChildren: Set to true to show images of sub categories
  • crop: Set to true to crop your images (true by default)
  • caption: Set to true to show image caption (false by default)
  • lightbox: Set to true to show open your images in a browsable image lightbox

  • lightboxThumbnails: Set to true to add thumbnail navigation to your lightbox (optional)

Let’s say you want to create a gallery that shows all the images of your media folders named “Cabins” and “Nature” in a four columns gallery, and link every image to its media file. The shortcode you’d use would be:
[happyfiles_gallery categories="Cabins, Nature" columns="4" linkTo="media"]
