[Plugin: WP Client File Share] Are files safe (is there a direct uploads link?)

  • My question exactly. Allow me to suggest you log out of the site and give the direct-path URL to a file a try? as far as I know, WP’s upload directory is accessible by default. I did find this – http://wpguru.co.uk/2012/01/how-to-prevent-direct-file-access-in-your-wp-content-directory/ – which gives instructions on how to put an .htaccess file in the wp-content directory to block access, which seems like an excellent fundamental practice.

    Hi dains,

    I can not try to do what you suggested cause I haven’t got the plugin installed. I was thinking the same thing as you, to place a htaccess in the uploads directory (or wp-content) but when I tryed that earlyer it broke my theme as my timthumb.php needs to access the images directly to create thumbnails. So that won’t work for me unfortunately.

    I was hoping to find some plugin or solution to let you share selected data and files only with persons you send a link (or make member) and NOT with anyone else. The files must therefore NOT be accessible from a direct link without permissions.

    You got any other solution?
