Applied as FTP software alternatives, web–based file managers have always been sluggish and poor in features. Yet, when using the File Manager integrated in the By Catholics Web Control Panel, you will not only employ a quick, responsive and easy–to–use file management interface, but also an app that will make a third–party FTP application unneeded. Take a look at some of the options that we have integrated into our File Manager.
Drag–and–drop file uploads
Publish files without any difficulty
Moving files between your desktop machine and any of your web pages is right now quick and easy, thanks to the drag–and–drop functionality offered by the File Manager. You can pull files from your desktop machine or laptop and drop them in your Web Control Panel over a secure SSL connection. That’s all. It takes a few seconds to upload a data file and slightly longer for larger files and directories.
There is no need to mount any third party software package or web browser add–ons. The drag & drop feature found in the File Manager works equally efficiently on all leading operating systems.
Right–click context menus
All of the file control choices in front of you
We have tried to make the File Manager as user–friendly as feasible, so it is possible to generate alterations for your files. Besides the traditional control bar near the top of the webpage, we have also added right–click context menus with all the simple file management choices. Simply click on a file or directory and choose the action you’d like to have from the selection that will show up.
It’s possible to rename, copy, move, download, edit, preview, archive, unarchive and delete any file or directory you select with a click of the mouse. In the event you click a folder, it is possible to generate a new directory or file inside it.
The right–click option is available as well at the time you pick different files or folders at once.
Handle enormous files effectively
On account of the in–built archive/unarchive solution, the File Manager enables you to make use of enormous files and not have to use FTP. It’s possible to pack a folder into a compact size by simply clicking on the Compress button or get the belongings in an archived folder by using the Extract button. Whenever compressing a directory or a couple of files, it is possible to select the archive extension (.ZIP, .RAR or .TAR.GZ) and the name of the archive file.
Online file editors
Manage files directly from your Web Control Panel
From your File Manager it’s possible to alter your files directly on the Internet by making use of many of the inbuilt instruments. The text editor shows the files with a plain text format, the code editor has syntax accentuating for one’s .PHP or .JS files, and then the WYSIWYG editor really helps you to see your edits while they appear online. Furthermore, all changes you make and save will be demonstrated straight away online, so it’s possible to preview them inside your Internet browser and go back to make more changes, in case you are not satisfied with the result.
There is no need to download your files, to edit them through your machine and to re–upload them back to your web hosting account. All of the editors are available through the buttons near the top of the file table or at the right–click context menus.
A logical folder structure
Your files structured with a convenient–to–use way
The File Manager displays all files and folders using a simple to comprehend alphabetical order. All of the files pertaining to the different hosts are structured into independent directories which are referred to as following their respective domain names, so it’s possible to effectively acknowledge them. This really is useful when you are maintaining a couple of websites at the same time. There’s no opportunity to stray or to feel really bewildered amidst the multitude of data files and directories within your account.
To access the files with a given host, just choose it in the drop–down menu near the top of the file table. Alternatively, you’ll be able to double–click on its folder and you are automatically sent to a table showing its files only.
A user–friendly interface
A File Manager created for people
The vast majority of web File Managers are slow–moving and difficult to make use of. They give you limited functions and are not really intuitive. We seek to change that through the By Catholics File Manager. It’s developed to be intuitive and also to look like an item you you are already familiar with – the File Manager on your personal computer.
All its capabilities, the drag–and–drop file upload options, the right–click context menus, the internal file editors, etcetera exist for 1 purpose – to make handling your web site(s) a lot easier.
Work with multiple files
Modify multiple files simultaneously
It is easy to make use of a multitude of files simultaneously making use of the multi–selection capability of the By Catholics File Manager. What you need to do is actually press the Control key and then click on the files or directories that you like to choose. In order to select a variety of files/folders in a row at once, click the first file/folder, press the Shift key and then choose the final file or folder in the collection.
When you have chosen the desired files/folders, you can drag them to a specific spot, or employ various actions to them using the right–click contextual menu or the buttons near the top of the file table.
Quick & simple password protection options
The simplest way to secure your data
There is one common path to shield a directory using a pass word – by making an .htaccess file. If, however, you are not technically qualified enough, you will have difficulty carrying it out all on your own. For making things straightforward, we’ve added a time and effort saving password protection interface to the File Manager accessible in the Web Control Panel.
To use this option, simply right–click on a directory and pick Password Protection. After that set the username as well as the pass word that you want to apply and then press the button. That’s all. The chosen directory is going to be undetectable by the general pubic and will be available to authorized visitors.
