See REQUIREMENTS in the file for additional dependencies:

  • Django Filer 1.7 or higher

Make sure django-filer is installed and configured appropriately.


For a manual install:

  • run pip install djangocms-file
  • add djangocms_file to your INSTALLED_APPS
  • run python migrate djangocms_file


Note that the provided templates are very minimal by design. You are encouraged to adapt and override them to your project's requirements.

This addon provides a default template for all instances. You can provide additional template choices by adding a DJANGOCMS_FILE_TEMPLATES setting:

    ('feature', _('Featured Version')),

You'll need to create the feature folder inside templates/djangocms_file/ otherwise you will get a template does not exist error. You can do this by copying the default folder inside that directory and renaming it to feature.

Running Tests

You can run tests by executing:

virtualenv env
source env/bin/activate
pip install -r test_requirements/base.txt
python test

Updating from cmsplugin-filer

Historically, cmsplugin-filer was used to create file, folder, image, link, teaser & video plugins on your django CMS projects. Now cmsplugin-filer has been archived, you can still migrate your old instances without having to copy them manually to the new djangocms-<file|picture|link|...> plugins.

There's a third-party management command that supports your migration:

This management command is only a starting point. It has worked out of the box for some people, but we encourage you to read the code, understand what it does, and test it on a development environment before running it on your production server.

The management command is only configured to transfer your cmsplugin_link, cmsplugin_file, cmsplugin_folder and cmsplugin_image plugins to modern djangocms_* plugins. If you need to transfer other cmsplugin_* plugins, you'll have to write your own code.

Alternatively you can use the deprecate_cmsplugin_filer app, which only adds a small migration that transfer the old cmsplugin-filer plugins instances to the new djangocms-<file|picture|link|...> plugins.
