Perfect plugin for member areas
By , for WP 4.3.1

Good plugin for securing / hiding media files (PDF's and images) that are only to be seen in the member area by logged-in users. Member management plugins like Ultimate Member don't offer this option. Result is that files which are imported into a member page are still publicly visible and accessable. Not good, because the member area and all its components should be visible by logged on members only. A big flaw in WordPress, as far as I'm concerned. But this plugin solves the problem easy and in an intuitive way.

Why not a 5 star rating? Because I think it's a pitty that this plugin hasn't been updated for a long time. Really hope the developer will restart his project. I would wanna pay for this plugin.

Worked but with installation issue
By , for WP 3.7.10

Initially I had problems with it not protecting any of the files I marked for protection. After some sleuthing on the support pages I realized my installation did not seem to proceed as normal as that part that instructs me to edit the .htaccess file didn't appear. And so I deactivated and activated the plugin again and that fixed the installation.

I don't know but maybe the fact that I'm using Bulletproof Security might have had something to do with it.

Anyway once I got the installation working it worked like a charm. Thanks!

Keep your media files private
By ,

I'm using Members plugin to keep certain post private, but I also want the media files of these posts to be private. Members does not offer this. Media Vault does! Thanks! Only added feature I would like to see is that it can be activated per site on a WordPress network. Currently it can only be activated network wide or for individual WP sites.
