I'm working on a plugin that would benefit from a system that allows WordPress to create temporary links to downloads that would expire after a short time. I couldn't find any plugins on point, so I'll be writing one. However, I would prefer not to reinvent the wheel.
I figure it would incorporate a few different elements:
- Create redirecting link to the real download location
- Destroy that redirecting link to the real download location after a user specified time
Have you done either of these things? How would you suggest doing so?
I would appreciate any assistance you may have or directions you could point me in.
