Disclaimer / Notes: Radcodes makes NO CLAIM that Folder plugin integration would work with ALL SE plugins. However, most SE standard plugins (which has ITEM extending SE Core Item class, and has its owner's as an User object) should work fine, like demo shown above. There are hundreds of plugins out there from different 3rd party developers, some may choose develop plugins in their own ways (not SE standardized way, or don't even have ITEM class), hence Radcodes cannot make any guarentee for products that outside Radcodes' control. Regardless of the extra built-in integration with other plugins, Folder / File Sharing plugin would work amazing on its own like any other Radcodes plugins. Tested with Local/FTP Storage
