- [Voiceover] A common feature you often see…in paid membership sites that's not directly available…from the Restrict Content Pro plugin…are members only downloads.…This could be documents, or files, or software,…or something else you want to provide to members only…and you want to upload them into your site.…The challenge is WordPress doesn't really restrict access…to downloads on any page or post…even if that page or post is restricted for access.…That means if you go to a page like the Welcome page…and you go to Edit the Page and you use the Add Media button…to add a document in and anyone who gains access to the URL…to that download will be able to download that file…even if they don't have membership access.…
That means any one of your members…can simply grab the URL to the file…and share it with all their friends…and they'll all be able to download that file…without you even knowing that's happening.…To manage downloads and make them members only…we need to use a separate plugin…and here Restrict Content Pro has a free add-on…
