How it works?
This plugin creates a new menu File Manager in your WordPress dashboard. From then on, you can view all server files, configuration files, and media files on your current WordPress website.
Since the tool comes with a drag-and-drop editor, modifying your core files or any template files would be handy.
With the advanced code editor, you can easily change the core files. You also have total control over the files and can perform tasks like moving, copying, uploading, renaming, duplicating, deleting, and so on.
You can edit the .htaccess file of your WordPress or WooCommerce installation. The .htaccess file can be found under where you have installed the CMS. Hence, go to the directory where you have installed the WordPress CMS.
Here’s another situation where Filester can get helpful. If you are experiencing any issues with a specific plugin and need support from the official team, you should send the particular plugin’s files.
By default, WordPress won’t allow such things. The only thing you can do is check out the plugin’s files through the editor.
You should get Filester when you need to download specific plugin's ZIP file to your local storage.

Meet the people who chose Filester for WordPress
I’m a WP dev working on a site without FTP and this is invaluable.
It provided a proper text-editor-like experience and didn’t have any problem editing files with its ACE editor, writing hundreds of lines of code through this little plugin. I didn’t get FTP from this particular site in question, but have managed to do everything I wanted with it without hitting paywalls or annoying stuff. It’s rare that I like a plugin this much.
Brilliant Plugin that is so much better than the standard File manager.
This plugin is very useful and it’s amazing the fact that the entire thing is free with all the premium features that others would charge for included.
I would like to thank the team for their immediate support, too, which was above and beyond what was required.
Thanks Ninja Team for providing such an invaluable plugin and for being so supportive 🙂
Flexible customization, helpful support.
Great Plugin, Fantastic Support.
