sorry to bother you, but I just don't seem to get how to use two important Protected Content features. I haven't found enough information anywhere and my tests have failed miserably.
Could anybody be so kind as to explain how to use (and what the exact purpose of):
- Media Protection
- url Protection
For what I gather, Media Protection will "protect" media and mask their link.
What is unclear to me is under what circumstances will it do so?
Say I add a "media protected" file on a post, via a button. Say it's a downloadable pdf. Say I make it accessible only to logged in members. The post is not protected (public).
is the expected behaviour that of showing the download button but then warn unauthorised people that they can't download the file?
I tried multiple scenarios and none of the seems to work. The files are actually not protected and the links not masked.
As for the url Protection, why is this feature there? I can't think of a scenario where I'd need to protect a page on my site via url (unless it was something like a Pretty Link masked affiliate link). I am surely missing something!!
Thanks for the help, cheers!
