So I was trying to implement the URI feature and I got it to work with several images. I entered the url of the images and was redirected to the join page as setup.
Then a bit later I installed NextGEN Gallery plugin and I could not get any images loaded with the gallery to be protected, but then also went back to the first few images I successfully got to work, to find that they weren’t restricted anymore! I’ve tried a ton of different things and have read many posts in the forums, as well as uninstalled NextGEN gallery, but I can’t get the URI to work no matter what I try.
I was using a pretty straight forward URI like /wp-content/uploads/members2/ (for membership level2) and have tried extensive variations of that like /members2/, /members2, members2/, etc etc. including the full URI of the exact files. I also know you can only restrict files created through WordPress, so I have made sure that’s not the problem either by using the standard wordpress uploads like uploads/2013/06/ and wasn’t successful.
So my questions are…
Has there been any known conflicts with NextGEN Gallery? Or anyone think there may be something that I could check on that may have broken it?
Are there any other settings that I may have accidentally turned off somewhere in WordPress or s2member that may have made it stop working?
Is there a way to change the location of the protected s2member protected directory to be someplace else (not plugins/s2member location)? And a way to restrict access to files by member level instead of a single catch-all directory?
Or, is there a way to restrict access using an htaccess file or php code that will restrict a specific directory? I read about how to do that for content with php files, but I need to restrict image and video files.
