Membership Plugin: protecting downloads

I've been testing out this plugin and am really liking it so far. However, my primary concern is being able to protect downloads. For example, if a user knows the direct location of the file, they will be able to download it.

Do you plan on adding either htpasswd or new_rewrite to protect specific folders on where the actual download is located? Basically like aMember.

    @webgroup *from the other post* at the moment no, though there is nothing stopping you adding a htaccess file to prevent direct access to that directory. The membership plugin access the file directly through the file system on your server and then serves the image / file via the plugin - so with the plugin enabled no one should need to access the image directly.

    The main reason is because not everybody (including me :slight_smile: ) use apache, so neither of those methods would work on my server.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.
