    Is there any way you could enable this plugin to work with selecting subscriber roles on media attachments as well please?

    It might be useful in conjunction with plugins such as Media Vault- limiting access to files based on author for example.

    If not no problem :)

    Hi there,
    Media attachments are a really interesting part of WordPress, and its something that's a bit more complex than this plugin could handle. I actually wrote a plugin once to do exactly what you're suggesting but that was years ago unfortunately.

    While I won't be adding support for that in this plugin, I might someday remake that old plugin

    Thanks for explaining.
    No problemo- If you could do it I'm sure it would have it's uses, but it was just a theoretical thought on my part really- I was thinking I could use the Media Vault plugin (I have no affiliation with it- I just found it useful) and then set subscribers as authors of files to control access, but I'm not even sure that would work.
    It would be cool though :-)

    Many thanks- have a lovely day :)
