Uploading protected files on for faculty:

We have a setup a two-tiered file protection approach at sites.e.e:

  1. Upload Media via the Dashboard > Media > Add New
    • this will by default protect all new uploads (using the Media Vault plugin)
  2. next then go to your post and “Add Media”
    • Note: If you upload media via the “Add Media” button in your post you will need to go back to the Media Library and set the file protection to be viewable by Subscribers.
  3. Set the post (or page) visibility to “private” in the “Publish” block
    • On sites.e.e we’ve set subscribers to have access to private posts/pages to simplify the file protection process
    • We’re encouraging these privacy setting to keep Google from indexing links to materials that should never be publicly viewable
