It took me quite some time to find a working function solving this issue.The functions that I found elsewhere worked in the Grid mode, but not in the List mode. The solution in this plugin is relatively simple, but effective and the plugin works as advertised. Thumbs up! Thank you!

Useful plugin it does a very good job out o the box. I’m using it with WordPress 5.2 and at the moment I have no issues. I am wondering if there will be an update of this fantastic plugin or a premium edition.

I paid for a competitors plugin and never could get it to work. Out of the box it gave all users admin privaledges that they didn’t need or shouldn’t have… With Frontier our 200 plus users love it. Almost everyone has thanked me for making it easier to publish content and edit content. I hope you will continue to develop and update this fantastic plugin. 😀. This isn’t a membership plugin. It is super lite and works excellently to allow users to post ,save and edit their content. There is an additional plugin needed to separate media files which works great too. I have tried them all and Frontier is the only one I would recommend. It isnt perfect but it is close. On mobile in portrait mode which most will use to draft in the buttons save buttons slide off the page. I’m going to try and locate and tweak the css. That is it. So minor. Thank you for building something great. How this is not recommended for all WP users is beyond me!

I just wanted other users to only see their own images when uploading files. It does that. Admins still see everything, of course. Just what I wanted, and it looks like there’s no added menus to bloat the site. Perfect!
