Wicked Folders Pro is a powerful but yet deceptively simple utility plugin that makes managing your content easy. In this Wicked Folders Pro review, we take a look at why you should consider Wicked Folders Pro. Read on below for the review.

Wicked Folders Pro Review: An Introduction

I was first introduced to Wicked Folders Pro when Donald, the owner of the Martech Wise Facebook Group mentioned about it on the moderators chat. It was a killer plugin for him and that was enough for me to check out Wicked Folders and the premium version, Wicked Folders Pro.

Wicked Folders intrigued me with its simplicity and its ability to let us organise and sort our posts, pages and custom post types. The premium version, Wicked Folders Pro, goes a step further with the ability to let you organise your media library, products, WooCommerce orders, coupons and more.

I find Wicked Folders Pro a great help for larger sites. If you are an avid blogger or run an agency, Wicked Folders Pro helps you find files quickly. With the Wicked Folders Dynamic Folders, I was able to find an accidentally uploaded zip file on WPStarters and a bunch of pdf files on a client’s site that was no longer relevant.

I was also able to sort out images by category as one of my clients’ site needed to reuse them. They were badly labelled by the previous agency, making it a chore to find them. With Wicked Folders Pro, we no longer had to spend hours searching the cluttered media library.

Wicked Folders Pro Review: The Competitors

Is Wicked Folders Pro the only plugin to manage your media library? We took a look at competing WordPress media library solutions and the results are interesting.

As you can see, we compared Wicked Folders Pro with the following

  • FileBird
  • Media Library Plus Pro
  • WP Media Folder
  • Folders

and Wicked Folders Pro comes with a more comprehensive feature set. While some of them come with DropBox, Google Drive and WooCommerce images integration, among others, Wicked Folders Pro does a lot more for the price.

Wicked Folders Pro Review: The Conclusion

I like Wicked Folders Pro. As we maintain client sites for them, the ability to sort, arrange and easily search for posts, products, custom post types and media library attachments is a winner for me.

Furthermore, Vinny and his team, has been responsive and open to suggestions on making Wicked Folders Pro a success.
