I have read everywhere on how to do this and cannot seem to get it to work. I work for 2 publications and one is a paid publication in which we use WordPress to restrict access to the magazines and maintain subscriptions. Totally works great but the only downfall is we offer a digital subscription but no way to truly secure them. Right now the only security they have from paid and non-subscribers are the posts in which the links are on, are only available for paid subscribers.
The folders are just in a place on our server that I assume most people won’t look for. I then figured out that s2member offers a file restriction option but it doesn’t seem to work well with folders and HTML files that link to various other content. We currently have a little over a years worth of monthly magazines and would love to be able to block access to the folders to only paid members. I tried using all the mod_rewrites options, but they don’t seem to work.
Is there something I’m missing or is just still not fully functional, or does someone know a workaround? I’d post some images of some more detailed information but it doesn’t look like I can on here.
