Moodle plugins directory: Repository File Manager
Repository File Manager
Blocks ::: block_repo_filemanager
Maintained by Tim Williams
This block contains a Moodle 2+ re-write of the Moodle 1.x file manager.
Current versions available: 3
The primary purpose of this block is to provide file management capabilities for the 'Course files area' repository. However, this block is also capable of interfacing with the Moodle 2+ Files API to provide limited file browsing capabilities for some other repository types. It is hoped to further develop the management capabilities so that files held in other repository types can be managed through this block.
This plugin is part of set Course files.

$str = etc... "input type="hidden" name="MAX_FILE_SIZE" value="'. $maxbytes etc
The value of $maxbytes was very high (as expected due to our moodle configurations) but it caused the problem anyway. This should not cause problems since in our site this block is meant for admins only.
Please update your plugin for Moodle v3.0
While installating I get errors [all text with debugging option on]:
Plugin block_repo_filemanager does not declare valid $plugin->component in its version.php.

In moodle 2.9 in the execution of the plugin do not appear the buttons to the foot like the actions in each line.
I use ubuntu 16.04 and probe with firefox chrome.
Any information to correct such problem will be very useful.
Could you provide a bit more information, I'm not sure I understand what the problem is. Also are you on Firefox, Chrome or both, your message is not clear on this point.
For reference you also need the Course Files Area repository plugin installed and active for this block to be of use, if you don't have this installed don't expect it to do much. The management capabilities only work for files stored in the Course Files Area, everything else is "browse only" so there will be no action buttons.

On Moodle 3.5, I've install the two plugins Repository File Manager and Course Files Area.
For the plugin Course Files Area I've enable set "Allow Internal use".
When I upload a file in Course Files Area, ie with a block in the Home page, this file is not visible in the Course Files Area of the Moddle file picker in others courses.
is this normal ?
I've got the plugin installed on my Moodle instance (3.11.6). While the plugin allows me to see the contents of the repositories, I don't have any other information along with the filename. No size/option to download etc.
