[resolved] cannot restrict viewing media (2 posts)

    I just quick tested this plugin. Tried adding Private and/or groups_read_post access restrictions. This got desired effect for Pages and Posts, but not for Media (jpgs and pdfs). Meaning my Media marked with either 'groups_read_post' or 'private' shows to everyone.

    I have settings set to allow restriction attributes for all types (post,page, media, etc)

    I must be doing something wrong at the basic level?

    Access to the actual files isn't blocked, this means that if someone knows the URL of an image for example, they will be able to access it. What is protected is the attachment itself.
