I am protecting some downloads here (see the French Food document):
http://www.speaksheets.com/languages

Masked Download URLs are working fine. When you click a document such as that French Food one (when not signed in), you get "No Access". However, the Protected Content Page is set to /register

The documentation says the following on page 23 of 67, specifically referencing Downloads:
"Anyone trying to access the content through this url is processed by the plugin and so if they don't have a subscription they will rightly be forwarded to the Protected content page we set up earlier in this plugin"

However, on page 17, it excludes downloads by saying: "When you protect a post or page, this is the content a user will be directed to if they do not have a subscription with access."

So how can I protect downloads by redirecting "strangers" to my specified Protected Content Page (/register)?

Thanks!

    Hey there.

    Any protected content where someone doesn't have access, they will be directed to the protected page.

    I'll make this clearer in the next revision of the docs.

    Thanks.

    Sorry, I made a mistake there.

    When accessing download/image content it is indeed a "No Access" image. Any other other content is directed there unless its through a shortcode, in that instance you can define the message the options admin (Content Protection Options).

    Take care.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
