  2. Feature ideas for WP File Download

hi

I recently bought your WP File download plugin for our subscription based membership site. We used to have another plugin for that but as we switched our membership management software to aMember Pro, that other file manager caused issues with the aMember script and that plugin's support was unresponsive, so we switched our file manager to yours as you are an aMember partner.

One feature of that other plugin was really handy and important to us and unfortunately we are missing that in your plugin. It was the option to limit the amount of downloads per user per any given time period. E.g. we could set a download limit of our choice per user. Each member could trigger i.e. 1, 3, 5 or 10 unique downloads per day or week or month (whatever period we chose to setup). If the member reached that amount of unique downloads per period, he would not be able to download new content until the period we set was passed. By doing this we could prevent people to buy a one month subscription, download all content and cancel their subscription to then come back half a year or a year later and do the same. With a download limit, we could set it so they should have a subscription for at least 2 or 3 months before they can download all content. Content dripping is going too far in limiting as then they wouldn't have access to all the posts and we want them to be able to chose which content they want to download first.

Is this a feature which you would be willing / able to implement in the future?

Thanks in advance.


Kind regards
David

Hi,

Thanks for adding your feature request here.

Yes, the restriction is useful in some cases. We'll consider this in the future release.
As some users' request, we will put a higher priority on it.

Thanks a lot!
Cheers,
