Key Benefits Of Using WP File Access Manager 3.0
There are 4 types of restrictions currently available in this WordPress plugin. You can easily enjoy the top benefits by using this great plugin. Those are-
- Restrictions By Individual File
- Restrictions By Individual File List
- Restrictions By File Type
- Restrictions For All Uploaded Files.
Here, I am going to explain some key notes on each restriction type. Let’s have a quick look.
1#. Restrictions By Individual (Single) File:
It’s very useful when you want to upload any file that needs to be available just for any specific user or the user’s role.
#2. Restrictions By Individual File List:
To improve user experience to the next level, a new option named ‘Restrict Individual File List’ has been added by ThemeNCode.
Here, you can easily choose several options like as- Image Name, Restrict By, Access Type, User Roles, Users, etc. while restricting your particular image file.
3#. Restrictions By File Type:
This alternative is also beneficial if you don’t want to go for a single file separately but limit files of a particular file type. For instance- since we’re discussing PDF Files, you may set up some limitations for all PDF files from this option.
What you need to do is- Go to the ‘Restrict By File Type’ tab. Then check to ‘Require Login’ checkbox and select the roles/users to allow or disallow. Finally, click on the ‘Save Changes’ option.
Now, you’re all done! All files will now follow the instructions that you’ve already set.
4#. Restrictions For All Uploads:
The option is to set some restrictions for all the files. Since it will apply to each file uploaded to the media library, it’s advisable for some sites. It can be suitable for private websites.
This option easily works in the same way as the other two options mentioned earlier. Just go to this tab, and select “Settings & Save.” The new settings will apply to all the files of your media library.
