Client Downloads

The Client Downloads module provides a secure mechanism for site owners to distribute files to their site’s members.

Available for: EE2
Version: 2.0

Available on request

Now available free for ExpressionEngine 2

Client Downloads Control Panel interface

The main concepts are:

  • You select members to have private download folders
  • Members can have any number of folders, and folders can be shared between any number of members.
  • Each folder can contain any number of files or assets. Each asset can appear in multiple folders.

The files can be stored securely outside of the site’s root folder preventing unauthorised access. Each time a file is downloaded it is checked to ensure that the current user has permission to access it. Downloads are logged and visible from the Control Panel.

Client Downloads usage

A simple, flexible template tag allows you to present the download areas in multiple ways.
