I have finally got everything else working on the membership plugin except the downloads/media protection function.
I am setting up my membership site so that different memberships have bonus ebook rewards for signing up. They would be able to access a page with all the ebook formats upon registering for a plan; the link to this page would be available on the "welcome" page that they are routed to after paying. I will be hiding each bonus link under a shortcode for that memebership plan, but am leaving a sample link open now for you to test.
Website testing page:
Try to access the page for the book. I want the registered members to be able to access this main page so they can choose the ebook format that is best for them and download the book. Of course, the page, "testdownload.html" should be masked as well as the download links.
I have two questions:
Question 1: How to get it working at all. Using the default original URL of:
Set the masked URL to:
Set protected groups to:
These are different bonus downloads to be set as gift for paying members.
I have only two access levels:
1. Visitors (which are strangers with no subscription or membership)
2. Members (which are paying members)
Download group settings:
Visitors: negative rules for all download groups
Members: positive rules for all download groups
Neither setting works! Whether in the negative or the positive, whether a visitor or a member, you can still see the real URL as listed above.
Question 2: How to change the real directory to one of my choosing. It is very messy for me to use the default (unchangeable) setting in Membership: the uploads folder. I need to keep my e-books and classes in a masked folder of their own. How do I set this?
For your convenience, I have created a test member that should be able to download a test pdf from any link on the masked page:
