Blue-l.png uses a two tiered approach to WordPress file protection. The following outlines how to upload protected files.

Protected Files

  1. Upload your file via the Dashboard: Media > Add New
    • this will by default protect all new uploads to subscribers (using the Media Vault plugin)
  2. Go to your post/page and click the “Add Media” button to insert the link into your post or page
    • 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

Private Posts/Pages

  1. Set the post (or page) visibility to “private” in the “Publish” block
    • On using the Subscribers Only plugin, we’ve set subscribers to have access to private posts/pages to allow you to create protected areas of an otherwise public site
    • Consider setting a post or page to Private for any areas of the site where you would not want Google to index. For example, a page that lists links to copyrighted materials that would never be publicly available.
