Works perfectly. Thanks.
Glad to hear it. Thank you!
Nice idea, GL&WS
Thanks, you too
how it works with woocommerce or edd ?
Hello, it works perfect with both of them.
I did buy it
but have a question :
these kinds of plugins make very heavy process for servers
for this problem, all of download sites use nginx instead of apachi for downloads.
Is nginx supported in your plugin ?
please define about this problem and how this plugin resolves heavy process of making secure links ?
if not, do you can optimize it for nginx ?
Hi, thanks for the question. I`ve already made nginx supported downloads process in the plugin but it is not updated here yet – it will be soon.
thank you very much
I used it
It was some confused
but now I can find it and use it completely
It is good
but your manual is very hard to find, Please use pictures and examples to helping better understanding specially for non-English persons.
It’s need to support Unicode for middle east
thank you very much
It is #1 in security links
Hello, the manual is in the purchased files you`ve downloaded from Envato – with pictures, besides, you can find it here http://codecanyon.net/item/slylinks-for-wordpress/full_screen_preview/14521642 (in the left menu – “A quick start guide”). What exactly is hard to understand for you? Please, ask.
hi dear, I need a plugin for protect links. I want if, only logged person can download my files. If this link was copied on another site, it cannot works. Yout product do it?
Hi, yes, it does exatly what you need.
Hi pre-purchase question,
My site works with s2member plugin for WordPress and BuddyPress. S2member protects areas managed by BuddyPress very well.
Unfortunately when I uploaded e.g. a pdf or jpg file and anyone knows the direct url like http:///www.mysite.com/wp-content/uploads/protectplease/myfile.pdf, file is accessable.
Is it possible with your plugin to protect restricted uri parts? If a link has included “protectplease” everything is only accessable if a user is logged in, using s2member levels?
And what happen if I`m working with a CDN and the file is located on http:///www.myCDN.com/wp-content/uploads/protectplease/myfile.pdf but the rest of the structure is the same? The logged person should have access, but not the user who accesses the CDN directly.
Thanks for answering my questions.
Hi, yes it is – the Slylinks can work with custom user roles/capabilities to give access to source files only for appropriate users. It can work with s2member levels too (see screenshot here http://clip2net.com/s/3CAwqGI ).
It doesn`t matter where you locate you source files – any CDN or your own server/hosting – you can hide the real link for your downloads from anywhere.
The difference is with using nginx-mode for you downloads – it works only with local files (hosted on your server).
Purchased your product because of your trustful answer. Now I suppose that all files have to be located in a special directory, e.g. /slydownloads/; am I right?
If so your plugin is absolutly useless because upload of pictures or musics, videos and documents are located in different folders by users in my BuddyPress network. If I would have to put each file in a special directory and to edit each link with your plugin for each user, would have more work with it than a useful link protection.
Please tell me if my assumption is right, thank you.
This folder is by default. You can define your own directory in the plugin settings – please, look at the screenshot http://clip2net.com/s/3CBRPSO
p.s. it recognizes subfolders too.
Hi, thank you for your response but it does not work. For me the settings of your plugin are not built in a useful way. It seems more complicated. Will write you a PM for support and come back later to the comment area.
Please check my last answer by Email I sent you. Unfortunately parts of your plugin shows me a mixed content in browser line for https/http content.
After deactivating your plugin everything works fine again and SSL certificate works as it should. For now, I`m not really happy with your plugin.
Answered by email, thanks for your comment.
Got your answer and tried a lot of tests with your plugin to prevent from accessing a link directly to my server. Unfortunately, as you have written, your plugin only works if a user will use manual created link system of your plugin, but other plugins e.g. galleries have their own directory. This makes it hard to work with your idea.
I want to thank you for your support and the time you spent (5 stars!). But your plugin is not useful for my needs. So I want to take your offer for a refund of the plugin cost and it would be great if you generate a link for me for getting a redeem. Just deleted the plugin from my test site.
Thank you and good luck!
Regret that my plugin was not helpful for you. I appreciate your rating and you might have given me an idea of how to extend the functionality of the plugin for the cases you`ve described. Thanks, it was nice to meet you, and here is your link for requesting refund: https://codecanyon.net/refund_requests/new
Refund request sent! Thank you again for your refund offer (5 stars!)
It would be great if you could offer the idea I gave to you. For many WP admins is a secure link within WP important because they want to build e.g. social networks (as I do). Many users upload images in a WP/Buddypress environment and uploaded image links should only be accessable if the user is online on the site; is to be interpreted as other plugins should be work with it (e.g. famous galleries). If a link e.g. mydomain.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/images/image1.jpg is accessable for everyone because someone copied elsewhere, it could be a policy issue.
But don`t forget. If you develop such a feature all images uploded as featured images for example, should be accessable for the public if the admin plans to spread posts and pages over other social networks. Same for links if cdn`s work on the site or links to YouTube. I think that facebook handles this in a great way.
I would pay $50 or more if the plugin would do this in a secure way with https:// and very flexible. Think about it and if you need someone for testing with great feedback, please let me know
I appreciate it, thanks.
Presales-Question: Can this be used to mask media-files links who are embedded in galleries / posts etc. as well, so it´s not possible to identify the real url?
Hello, you can mask any links with the proviso that no one knows in advance where your files are located – that`s why it is possible to define any directory to operate with files in it (and do not show it to public).
Your plugin is fine but I need your help.
I would lead with pass through to .pdf but it does not work.
Problem with application data pdf.
Do you have an idea ?
Iframe would work but for me the url to remain hidden.
Hello, for pdf it can work as a download – use “link type – file”, “download mode – give files” and if you host your file where your site is, turn the “Downloading local files via” option to Nginx mode.
Hello, my problem is not download. I want open view the pdf with url pass-through. Thank you for your response.
Unfortunately it is not possible for viewing in a browser in such a mode.
