Used as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) software substitutes, online file managers have always been slow and poorly featured. Nevertheless, when using the File Manager built in the WebPad Control Panel, you won’t just have a quick, intuitive and time and effort saving file supervision interface, but also an app that will make a third party FTP software unnecessary. Take a look at a few of the characteristics that we have built into our File Manager.
Drag ’n’ drop file uploads
The most straightforward way to upload files
Posting files with an FTP client is an obsolete and quite an unsafe way for relocating files from your desktop machine or laptop to a web hosting server. That’s why, we have included drag–and–drop data file upload support in the File Manager. Simply drag the data files that you want to publish from your computer into your browser and they will begin to publish in your website hosting account over a protected SSL communication.
You do not have to mount any additional software, browser add–ons or applications. The drag–and–drop capability works just as well on Windows, Linux or Mac.
Right–click context menus
Manage all files with only a mouse–click
A large number of File Managers list all the activities that one can carry out over a file or directory at the top of the page. We believe this isn’t properly arranged. Thanks to the File Manager, you can access all file managing options any time you right–click a file or directory. This option is also applicable for a number of files/folders.
It’s possible to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete just about any file or folder you decide with simply a mouse–click.
Work with huge files effortlessly
Because of the built in archive/unarchive solution, the File Manager helps you to make use of substantial files and not have to use FTP. It is simple to shrink a directory into a compact size by clicking on the Compress button or gain access to the contents of an archived directory through the Extract button. When compressing a folder or a bunch of files, it’s possible to choose the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) in addition to the title of the archive file.
Online file editors
Manage files straight from your Control Panel
From your File Manager you can edit your files instantly on the net by making use of any of the inbuilt software instruments. The text editor shows the files in a plain text format, the code editor has syntax emphasizing for your .PHP or .JS files, and the WYSIWYG editor helps to see all the modifications while they appear live. Any changes that you come up with and save will be displayed at once on the net, which enables you to review them with your web browser and get back to generate more edits, if you are not happy with the result.
You don’t have to download your files, to revise them on your PC and to re–upload them back in your website hosting account. All the editors are available using the buttons near the top of the file table or from the right–click contextual menus.
A logical folder structure
All of your files organized in a simple way
The File Manager shows all of the files and folders in a simple to comprehend alphabetical order. The whole set of files associated with the different hosts are organized within separate directories that are named after their respective domain names, which means you can easily acknowledge them. This is really useful in controlling a large number of websites at the same time. There isn’t any opportunity to stray or to feel really confused amidst the variety of files and folders within your website hosting account.
To reach the files with a host, simply select it in the drop–down options menu at the top of the file table. As an alternative, it’s possible to double–click on its directory and you’ll be straight away brought to a table showing its files only.
A user–friendly interface
Take care of your files with a mouse–click
The WebPad File Manager is developed in such a way to make you feel like making use of the file explorer on your desktop. It provides you with a possibility to drag your files and to drop them inside a preferred area and displays all the obtainable edit opportunities upon clicking the right mouse button. At the same time, the tool carries a built in file preview solution as well as other file editors to guide you manage your files in real time straight from your Control Panel.
Additionally, we have listed a group of file management posts and how–to video tutorials to help you fairly quickly find out how to work with the tool.
