    I have seen the below post and this is somewhat related to what I wanted.

    Restrict access by file name:
    https://wordpress.org/support/topic/restrict-access-by-file-name/

    My requirements would be:

    1. All of the Files inside the folder would be hidden initially
    2. After searching, the file/s would be shown if it is matching the queried text
    Example:
    Search Query: Harper Allen
    Filename: July2020 Certifificate of Harper Allen.pdf
    3. If there’s no file then it will show only a certain message

    Note that the folder would be accessible for non-logged-in users.

    How much would you charge for it? Thanks.

    You can do this with the Pro version and Search extension add-on. You would place a search form on one page, or in a widget, and the list you want searched on another page. When the search form is submitted, it goes to the list page, showing the search results or a message saying nothing was found.

    Please note that spaces are not allowed, so July2020 Certificate of Harper Allen.pdf would be July2020-Certificate-of-Harper-Allen.pdf
