[Resolved] Can this be used to limit downloads?

  • marvmckay66


    I have a membership site which offers monthly downloads to subscribers. I want to limit the capacity to download only once per subscriber. It was suggested to me to do so by storing a value in usermeta if a user has downloaded the file already. Could I use this plugin to do so and then check that value if the user tries to download it again?

    It might work for your needs using the short codes and custom meta.

    For example,

    1. create a custom meta field
    2. make it a checkbox
    3. don’t add it to profile
    4. create and insert a form short code to update the checkbox value
    5. create and insert a useraccess short code to test for the checkbox value and return a download link if the checkbox value is appropriate

    It may sound confusing, but I believe it would work.
