Re: Prevent direct access to files but allow download from site

Hi, thanks again for the reply.

HOW I want to block I don't know, I am on this forum for this reason.

I thought I was clear, I don't know how to explain it in different words.
I want to prevent the user from downloading the file without being logged on my site.
The user MUST BE ABLE to download the file from the article pages when LOGGED.
If the user is NOT LOGGED, he cannot download the file, therefore even recovering the url, he must receive an error or any other type of block.

I have already tried using the parameter valid_referes, it seems that I have to specify the domain and also the address of the article pages, but they are dynamic, the article is not always the same. Maybe I'm doing something wrong.

If I enter my domain as valid_referer, the user can still download the file by retrieving the link of the site, from the download history (if he has previously downloaded the file)

Example of an article address
domain.com/my-first-article

On this page there is a link to download a file located in this path:
domain.com/assets/file/test.pdf

The user does not need to be able to copy and paste this link into the brower to access the file directly.

I'm continuing to try, but maybe I'm missing some operating logic.
