Which plugins are compatible with Document Library Pro?

We have coded Document Library Pro in a standard way that follows the latest WordPress best practices. This makes it likely to work with a wide range of third party plugins. It is also designed to work with any WordPress theme.

While we don't guarantee compatibility with any third party software other than WordPress itself and the official integrations listed below, we have tested Document Library Pro with various plugins and found that they work well together. Many of our customers have also told us which plugins they are successfully using it with, so we have included these in the list too.

What about plugins not on this list?

There are many thousands of WordPress plugins, and we can't possibly include all the compatible ones in this list. Don't worry if you are using plugins not listed above.

With our 30-day money back guarantee, you can try the plugin risk-free and get a full refund if it doesn't work with something else on your site.

And if you install Document Library Pro and discover new integrations that aren't listed here, please let us know as we're constantly adding to this list!

What if I discover a problem?

For each plugin listed above, we have indicated whether it's an official integration or whether we have simply tested with that plugin. For official integrations, Barn2 take responsibility for compatibility. For tested plugins, if you find any compatibility issues then you would need to ask a developer to fix the problem for you because they are not officially supported. Please also let us know so that we can update the information.

We've partnered with Codeable to provide our customers with expert help if required.

Incompatible plugins

The only plugin we are aware of which is actively not compatible with Document Library Pro is Category Order and Taxonomy Terms Order. This breaks the options in Document Library Pro which let you change the order of the folders. You only need to worry about this if you are using the folders option in Document Library Pro, otherwise it is fine to use the two plugins on the same site.

Unrelated plugins

There are many plugins which you can use alongside Document Library Pro, but aren't directly related to it. For example, this includes your SEO plugins (e.g. WordPress SEO, Google Analytics, and All In One SEO Pack), performance-enhancing plugins (e.g. caching) and security plugins (e.g. iThemesSecurity and Wordfence).

We haven't listed these plugins because they don't directly affect your document libraries. However, the vast majority of unrelated plugins will work correctly with Document Library Pro. Please send us a support request if you are unsure, or get the plugin and use our 30-day money back guarantee if needed.

Help us improve this list!

We're always looking for more plugins that work well with Document Library Pro. If you're successfully using it with any other plugins that might be of interest to other people, please let us know. We might even be able to showcase your website as a case study!
