Media Protection disables all media

Hi, When I enable the add-on for media protection, all images disappear as a result, no matter what permission they are set to. Any Ideas?

    Hey there @Harry

    I hope you're having a great day!

    Indeed, it would appear that the Basic Protection has a bug in it. :slight_smile:

    I just tested all 3 protection modes for the Media addon, and Basic does indeed cause media items to disappear from the content. As the wp-content/uploads folder has been masked with a custom URL (default = downloads ), the browser looks for media like this:
    domain.com/downloads/2014/11/image.png

    However, the other 2 protection methods in the addon (Complete & Hybrid) appear to function just fine on my test install. They too mask the wp-content/uploads folder with a different slug in the URL, like so:

    domain.com/downloads/ms_12345.jpg
    domain.com/downloads/?ms_file=ms_12345.jpg

    ..but the images do display.

    Can you please test on your site with either of the other 2 protection methods

Thank NAME, for their help.
