Support » Plugin: Google Drive Embedder » GDrive file only to logged in WP user

  • Resolved Diana



    I would like to share Google Drive documents to only registered members of a WordPress site. They should only view once they are logged in.

    I don’t want this users to view, download or share any link outside the wordpress site. Is this something that can be achieved with your plugin? Thank you!

    Without requiring some form of authentication with Google, it is possible to do this: protect your site (e.g. using a privacy/membership plugin) so only logged in WP users can see the site’s pages, and then embed Drive files using Google Drive Embedder within those pages. The Drive files would need to be shared as ‘Anyone with the link can view’ so they can be seen without requiring Google authentication. Only logged-in users will be able to see these WP pages, so only they will see the embeds in the first place. However, it would be possible to obtain the links to share with others, but the links are not immediately visible. It is possible to instruct Drive to prevent downloads of files.

    I hope this helps. Please note I will probably not be able to pick up replies to this forum thread here, so email if you have any follow-up questions!
