I have a set of documents that only REGISTERED users of the site should be able to consult or download. But I would like the list of these documents to be visible by all public (GUESTS), in order to encourage them to register.

I would like to be able to use the viewer (lightbox) but unfortunately, if I use it, either I allow GUESTS to display the documents and they then have access to the viewer (I do not want them to consult the documents), or I refuse to display the documents to GUESTS and then they do not see the documents' list anymore...

My idea would be the ability, for non-registered users (GUESTS), to link every document's title to the login page (or any other dedicated page).

Changes have been made to /plugins/dropfilesthemes/default/tpl.php line 62 to 68; line 195 to 204

and /components/com_dropfiles/views/frontsearch/tmpl/default_results.php line 46 to 58

Thanks a lot JU-Support!!

So now, when GUESTS click on a documents' title link, they are redirected to the login page, whereas REGISTERED users use the link to download the document.

This would be a nice feature to add to Dropfiles un future updates.
