Download link remains valid so can be shared (2 posts)

    Many thanks for this plugin - I think it meets our needs (or nearly does).

    It looks like the encrypted link that is generated remains valid indefinitely though so it could easily be shared with others?

    eg. by right clicking and copying the link then pasting it.

    I'm guessing that manually changing the key stops that but could there be a an automated way to purge links?

    On my blog, i use the option "private". I put a .htaccess to the download folder with a deny from all directive. This works : the link is only valid if you are logged into WP. You can test from another browser.
