I am considering using WP File Download to build a content library for my site users. A couple of questions - I am planning on using a separate plugin (Members) to create and assign more user roles than the native ones offered by WordPress


  1. Will WP File Download recognize the additional user roles created by third-party plugins (Member in particular) when assigning these to specific documents/pages?
  2. Am I understanding correctly that I could build a library on one page and control the different files displayed based on access by different user roles (rather than creating multiple pages)?
  3. Am I correct in assuming that WP File Download does not include its own custom user role creation functionality?


Thanks.

Hi,

Thanks for contacting us here about this extension.

1. Will WP File Download recognize the additional user roles created by third-party plugins (Member in particular) when assigning these to specific documents/pages?

Yes, you can use 3rd party plugin to create User roles. As I see, you can see the new role created by Members plugin in our plugin by the way.

2. Am I understanding correctly that I could build a library on one page and control the different files displayed based on access by different user roles (rather than creating multiple pages)

Yes, you can set user group to access a category. For more information:

3. Am I correct in assuming that WP File Download does not include its own custom user role creation functionality?

Yes, it is not possible to create a new user role in our plugin.

Hope it helps!
Cheers,
