“WP Secure Links” is a WordPress Plugin that helps you offer downloads safely and securely. The Download Links created by “WP Secure Links” cannot be copied or distributed. You can create a download area on a WordPress Page or Post. A short tag in the WordPress editor helps you add secure links to downloadable files.
WP Secure Links is the WordPress version of my other product “Secure Download Links” and contains essentially all features of “Secure Download Links” and much more.
Create Links in Demo WordPress Admin area. Credentials provided below: Please preview posts in demo to see the links working.http://wpsecurelinks.sixthlife.net/wp-admin
You will notice a dynamic link is served instead of download URL. An actual URL or file name is not there even in the source code. If these links are copied they take you to an ?Unauthorized Access? page. This Page is Fully customizable and is a WordPress page.
Your download links are protected and can not be copied, sent via emails or posted in social sites or forums.
Get rewarded for each free download with a new subscriber to your email list, Securely.WP Secure Links has a “Subscribe to Download” feature. You can let visitors download a freebie from a secure link that becomes available for download after the user fills their email in the subscribe form. You can subscribe the user to a mailing list of choice. Either the subscribers can be downloaded as a .csv file or can be directly added to a Newsletter System. Currently it supports Mailpoet (formerly Wysija-newsletters).
It works well with a wide variety of file types:
.ai, .asx, .au, .avi ,.bmp ,.css, .doc, .eps, .exe, .gif, .htm, .html, .ico, .jpe, .jpeg, .jpg, .js, .mid, .mov, .mp3, .mpeg, .mpg, .pdf, .pps, .ppt, .ps, .pub, .qt, .rtf, .svg, .swf, .tif, .tiff, .txt, .wav, .wmf, .xls, .zip.

Can it protect hotlink video files and allow only certain ips/domaind to hotlink them to stream?
I would suggest try the demo
Hi, I am not sure if your plugin is the right one to solve our problem, so one question before buying. We sent our email subscribers a link to a free mp3 download via a welcome emails and want to avoid that people share the link without subscribing. Is this possible with your plugin? Thanks a lot :-)
hi, the secure link with this plugin can be displayed on wordpress page. whoever has access to page can download the product. "Protected Links" my another product is more suitable to send a link that expires after some amount of time or uses. It has a demo so that you can try it before you purchase. http://sixthlife.net/VProtectedLinks/demo/ username: admin password: password Product url is: http://codecanyon.net/item/protected-links-expiring-download-links/2556861 Also WP Secure Links demo can be tried at http://wpsecurelinks.sixthlife.net/wp-admin Username: trial Password: trial thanks, Anu
hi, Sure I will take a look and get back. thanks, Anu
Any news on this issue? As I stated on the email I sent the link generated is not linking to any file.
was not in office for last few days, I just responded to your message.
before buying wanted to take some doubts...
1) The plugin works like this too:
[slink url="[MY SHORTCODE HERE]" class="btn"]DOWNLOAD[/slink]
2) Can we limit the amount of daily downloads of registered users?
Subscriber: 10 downloads per day;
Author: 20 downloads per day;
Administrator: 50 downloads per day.
Hi, the shortcode works. It does not have a feature to restrict downloads per day, only per user. thanks, Anu
can you make the links expire after amount of time?
Hi, The links do not expire after a fixed amount of time, as the idea here was to make links non sharable unless accessed from respective WordPress page. So expiring links is not a part of this till now. Slight modification to the plugin can achieve expiring links for one or multiple user although.. My other product "Protected Links" is for expiring links, its not in WordPress. thanks, Anu
Hi, i have a question... The links are encrypted directly on my site or with your site (your server, your domain wpsecurelinks.sixthlife.net)? This plugin has some tag (PHP) as or only [slink]? I need use this plugin with page php included, and tag like [slink] dont work... Other question, is possible edit time to expire in hours or times download? example 5 downloads expire links? Thanks.
Hello, nice work. Can the plugin also count the number of downloads?
Hi, thanks! currently it cannot count the number of downloads. thanks, Anu
Just purchased your plugin Error console and visual editor not appearing. Here's the error: Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 500 () wp-tinymce.php:1 Failed to load: https://www.mywebsite.com/wp-content/plugins/secdown/js/editorsnip.js
please remove the .htaccess file in the plugin folder and reupload the plugin. the error will go away.
Thanks for the quick response, I appreciate it greatly. Unfortunately, I have this error: Invalid command 'php_admin_flag', perhaps mis-spelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration Followed your instructions.
And also W3Total Cache plugin now throws this notice: "Either the PHP configuration, web server configuration or a script in the WordPress installation has zlib.output_compression enabled. Please locate and disable this setting to ensure proper HTTP compression behavior."
Unfortunately, this is not possible. I've also discovered inside plugin's error log the following: PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function add_action() in /home/usname/public_html/wp-content/plugins/secdown/sdldownload.php on line 14 Also with the plugin enabled 2 404 errors are generated to 500.shtml internal server error. The idea of the plugin is great but at least to me, too many errors generated, I'm afraid I'll have to ask for a refund. Thank you for your quick answers though.
I am unable to replicate the issues you are facing, so am unable to help you here,
HI , Demo links are broken , And when I put a link in the admin "http://wpsecurelinks.sixthlife.net/wp-admin", display "Unauthorized Access" error. can i use a link ([slink url=””][/slink]) to show in video player? Thanks
Hi, there seems to be an issue here, I will check it and rectify, I will leave a comment once it is working again, it cannot be used to show in video player. "Secure Download Links" has worked in this kind of applications, it is not fully tested and so cannot be guaranteed. Also it is non-wordpress version. thanks Anu

cool script.. keen to buy... demo is down..
hi, thanks, the demo is working now. Regards, Anu

Hello, I could adjust the link generated from an embed or iframe?
Bought the plugin, Installed and did everything that is mentioned in the Documentation still its not working. Here is my issues: 1. No matter what it's keep redirecting to the Unauthorized page which I created. And no downloading of the file 2. I want to create a button instead of the link. I am using Intense shortcode to create button. Please advise, I need to start my work by today. Thanks
check allow_url_fopen is working on your server. check button creating shorcode for secure links here http://wpsecurelinks.sixthlife.net/uncategorized/download-links-as-button/
Not working tried everything you guys said and now you are not replying my Email. Is this the support you provide to your customers?? If I didn't get this working I need refund
we have offered you free install in case needed, you want to keep your installation url secret for reasons not known to me, so ftp etc is not a question, contact envato support if you need a refund, they can take a decision.
Yes I want to keep the site secret because I can't reveal without my clients permission. Now coming to the main topic, you have stopped replying to my Emails that's what frustrating. If you treat you customers like this then nobody is going to use your plugin. And you should have a proper guide on how to install this plugin. I will talk to envato for my refund
Have given the FTP details and wp admin details. Yet you didn't fixed it. If you can't just tell me, I don't want to waste my time on this nonsense anymore
As we have informed you, it is mysql related server specific issue that your queries are not being executed in a consistent manner you need to resolve it on your own with the help of your host. unfortunately we are unable to help you with server issues.
Had tried with three different server and this plugin is not working one a single server I tried. I will try this plugin with one more server and if this plugin didn't work I am sure going to ask for a refund. I wasted my time in this buggy plugin which didn't even work properly and I have never encountered such a bad product support in my life where you guys stopped replying when you don't have any answer to my questions.
you have not tried on 3 servers as you were unable to provide the 3 urls when we asked you to. you said you want to get it working on this server and you are not bothered if it works any where else. if you cannot get it working on the server you need, resolve it with the help of your webhost.
Ok so you are simply refusing what I said, Wait let me provide you the complete screenshot of every server I tried with. If you are not going to let this plugin work or provide me the refund, then be ready with lots of reviews in every major blogs about your plugin. Don't ever try to cheat your customer and behave like this way.
we are not scared of negative reviews, you are free to do whatever you want. we are confident of our product and know that it works. i am sorry we are not able to resolve your SERVER's issues
No worries, I already asked envato to refund my money if I didn't get my money I am going to get this issue in every major news site
Hey, I am interested in your plugin its great.but from the comment section i read a comment from 2 years ago that this plugin Could not secure download link of WooCommerce downloadable products is it now available to do this ? Hope to hear from you soon Thanks!
hi, it does work with woocommerce upto an extent, however, it is not fully tested - so no guarantee for woocommerce. I suppose it shows okay in most cases except that the emails sent still show the normal woocommerce link and not the secure links. thanks Anu
The "WP Secure Links" plugin does not work on my membership website (https://tlcliparts.com). Activating the plugin causes the website to stop working. Can you make the plugin better and update it so that I can re-download it?
i want when user click on download button it should be open download page and after 10 second file download becauase i have checked your demo demo site Demo download link is random but people can download this file via direct link..
Hi, Thanks for your interest in "WP Secure Links". If you do not disclose the direct link to file keep file on your current or another server protect the folder in which you keep files on the server with .htaccess your the download link will be protected. I have discussed one of the many ways to protect folders with htaccess so that they redirect user if they try to access file directly in this in forums for my other products on codecanyon and in comments section at http://sixthlife.net/product/secure-download-links/. You can keep the links to downloadable on a WordPress page and either password protect the page or use a plugin to restrict certain users or certain user roles to access the page there is no reason your download links will be shared. In order to keep the system simple and customizable for WordPress user I have not build the whole system but kept it simple and easy just like creating a hyperlink. The links created are ever changing and expiring so these cannot be shared outside of your system. that is its benefit. thanks, Anu
Hi Sixthlife.. i have also using MaxCDN and W3 Cashe system..I have more then 2500 Rar file on my site and daily increasing what happened if i cross 10000. i need 1 thing then i will purchase this 1. After 30 days download link automatically change Automatically.
Hi, you can increase the number from 10,000 to a larger number. this is not a limitation, simply an estimated number so that unique file names have more possibilities and the loop does not take much time. the download link changes are eve changing they do not remain same for anytime. I have recently added a test wp login to the demo to test your links. you can try out. thanks, Anu Anu
Hi Sixthlife This plugin looks great and looks exactly what I need, can you tell me two things: 1. Does it support .csv files? Not listed in your description, but I see you support .xls already? 2. Does it work with external https urls? Thanks!
Hi, iThanks for your interest. It can support .csv files with a minor adjustment to the code, yes it supports external http urls. thanks, Anu
OK, cool. How about httpS as I mentioned?
Hi, Kindly check a trial login credential is given to test if it works in specific/ different cases. http://sixthlife.net/product/wp-secure-links/ thanks, Anu
It supports .csv files now
Hi, I have a question: This plugin is compatible with W3 Total Cache? Thank you, EF
Hi, As of now it does not work with W3 Total Cache. I am not sure if it can work with certain settings. If you would like to test further the logins to wordpress admin for the demo install can be found at http://sixthlife.net/product/wp-secure-links/ thanks, Anu
Hello, I purchased your plugin and have been having an incredibly challenging time with it since the moment I purchased it. First, the instructions are incredibly complicated, and confusing. A plugin should be simple, this one is not. Second, your chat tech support team here: http://wpsecurelinks.sixthlife.net/ do not seem to understand that people contact tech support because they don't understand coding. Third, the demo part of your site makes it look like download buttons are part of your plugin. They aren't. According to your "tech support", buyers have to figure out how to create download buttons on their own. Your plugin just creates a link, and it's not as simple as copy/pasting a hyperlink into a button. Fourth, I finally was able to have it installed, however the download time, once you click the download link is about 20 seconds! That far too long to expect a customer to see their download! It should be pretty instantaneous, especially since the download I used was from Amazon S3. So my questions are as follows.... 1. Are you aware of the many problems your plugin has? 2. Are you working to fix the many bugs it has? As you are probably aware, it's very difficult to find a plugin that does what yours "claims" to do (But in reality falls very short) and I'm not even sure if there's another option out there currently. I even asked your "tech support" for your direct email so that I could communicate with you and help you to make the improvements that your plugin so desperately needs. They told me they couldn't share that information. I do hope to hear a response soon.
Hi, We are constantly working to improve our products. thanks for your feedback. I will keep in view your suggestions as we work on updates. thanks, Anu
is possible to add a download counter for this?
Hi, thanks for purchasing "WP Secure Links". It is possible to display number of downloads with some modifications to the plugin. A column will need to added to one of the database table to keep track of downloads. this number can be displayed as needed. thanks, Anu
