Wp Drive

The plugin

The Plugin enhances the capabilities of the Windows Application “WordPress Drive”. If installed on a WordPress site WordPressDrive is able to use these additional features:

  • getting (file) size information
  • populating custom post types to WordPressDrive (REST API)
  • replacing/modifying media files 1

1 Most of the code for media replace is taken from the plugin “Easy Replace Image” by Iulia Cazan

The windows application

WordPressDrive is a Windows Userspace Filesystem, that lets you access any WordPress Site, that supports the WordPress REST API (default) as a Windows Drive (Share).

Posts and Pages are organized in Folders as HTML Files. Media File types are represented by their file type depending from extension.

The Application starts as a taskbar icon, all user interaction can be started from there. Working with WordPress data happens with the standard Windows tools (Explorer, CMD, …).
