Media Library Assistant
Can I use MLS to protect some media only for admin use? (2 posts)

    Am I able to sort some media files so that they can only be used by admins? Or admins and editors?

    I dream to hide admin images from other users in an admin only folder.

    I want site users to use the media library but I don't want them to have access to my site's specific images.

    Thank you,

    Thank you for this question and for your patience in awaiting a response. I have given this some thought and investigation, and concluded that it would be quite a bit of work to add these features to MLA. I will consider this for some future release, but it may be some time before anything comes of it. In the interim, here is another plugin that may give you what you need:

    User Access Manager

    User Access Manager - NextGEN Gallery Extension

    You could also look at the successor to Role Scoper:

    Press Permit

    If you investigate these and they do not meet your needs, I would be interested in knowing where they fall short.

    Thanks for your interest in MLA and for this question. I regret that I don't have a more positive answer for you at this time.
