Support » Plugin: Delightful Downloads » https SSL sites

  • Hi,

    As a lot of other people I enjoy this plugin and find it very useful and simple to use.

    However I have a problem which is a repeat of another (now closed but unanswered) topic:

    The folder protection causes problems on a https site. A forbidden error message is received when a download is attempted.

    When folder protection is turned off everything works fine.

    Any ideas about this?

  • Same issue here. Everything was fine until I switched my site to SSL. The only way the files will load now (without a 403) is if I tick the box that reveals the whole URL, and then the file opens in an insecure window. I can’t believe there are so many questions about this with no response from devs.

    Same issue here. Only way I got it to work is to go to:

    Download Settings –> Advanced –> Folder Protection –> No

    Not sure if that is going to give a hacker the ability to get into my site. Anyone know if that would be the case?
