Support » Plugin: WordPress Download Manager » Could not make library file protection work.

  • It has some good features but not the one I need most, though it claims to. Maybe I am missing a step? It claims to have Media library file protection, but I could not figure out how to make that work. After installing it and adding some files with role permissions I could access them without permissions just as easily as with them. I could not find any documentation to help with the issue so I moved on to other possible plugins.

    Here is how to protect media library files:

    But, this is .htaccess rule based protection, so it will only work with apache.

    However, for extended file protection based on user roles or passwords, you need to upload files through WPDM. Then select roles from Allow Access option or enable password lock.
