I've been using WP Download Manager, this plugin works pretty good for protecting file download by providing password protection. But I have an issue which seems to be easy to solve.
ISSUE: using password protection will force the users to download the files only by browser built in downloader, which means the user are unable to download the files by third party download managers (IDM,DAP). Obviously, because the browser first reads the link then sends it to download managers and this plugin does not allow this.
So, I need to either find another plugin which I couldn't or modify current plugin!
To be more clear, I pretty need something which protects my download links against being published and accessible directly from outside(Hotlink) so the visitor will be only able to download the files by visiting my website.
I'll be so much appreciated if you guys kindly help me on this.
