Protect direct access to uploaded files
I am running a multisite with the latest WP3 and BuddyPress. I have it protected with Private BuddyPress and have disallowed robots to the site. Unfortunately, Google has picked up some of the files in my sub-site’s files folder. One can easily download these files with the full url known. I need to be able to prevent people from getting access to these files without being logged in.
If they are logged in, I don’t care if they can download them; I just want to prevent non-members from getting access to the files. There is a great plugin called Private Files (seen here — http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/private-files/) that works wonderfully on non-multisite WP installations. Unfortunately, it fails on all multisite sub-sites.
I believe this is due to the rewrite of the url from ‘/blogs.dir/2/files’ to ‘sub-site_name/files.’ This is more than I can handle without some expert help. Can someone out there help me out? Thanks in advance for any assistance.
