Description

With Groups File Access you can provide file downloads for Premium Members or allow only registered users to download files from your site.

Access to files is restricted by group membership. To be able to download a file, a user must be a member of a group that is assigned to the file. If an access limit has been set for the file, the user must also have accessed (downloaded) the file fewer times than the file’s access limit.

If you want to restrict access to a file to users that belong to a certain group, create the group, add the desired users to the group and assign the group to the files that the group should be able to access. More than one group can be assigned to a file.

Files access can also be granted through key authentication so that users do not need to log in to download a file, while access restrictions based on Groups still apply.

Shortcodes are used on posts or pages to render links to files, provide information about files and conditionally show content to users depending on whether they are allowed to access a file.

For example, the [groups_file_link group=”Premium”] shortcode renders links to files that members of the Premium group can click to download the files.
