You can easily lose track of just how many files you upload and download to a website all the time. There is a simple WordPress plugin that would allow you to track your file uploads and downloads easily.
The Client Download Zone WordPress plugin exists to help users create a super secure download zone from scratch. It’s super easy to install, by using a simple shortcode or going to the main plugin page after install.
Setting Up The Dashboards
The most important step is to set up your admin dashboard. You can do this by clicking the link to the downloads frontend list which is listed under the plugin settings. Once the dashboard has been set up, all files can be downloaded or viewed from this dashboard.
Under the navigation section, the admin can choose the permalink that allows logged-in users to access their dashboard.
Next, you need to set up your client dashboard, so users can have access to their uploaded files and manage their shared files with groups or individually. Go to the plugin settings to access the user dashboard, and go to the general tab.
Users can manage and edit their own uploads, as well as view, share or delete files that have been shared with them. Simply click the “open” button and then the “download” button. Users can upload files directly to the admin by using “upload file”.
Creating User Groups
It’s possible to create user groups to more easily distribute downloads to users. Permissions can also be assigned to these groups to view certain files. Navigate to the User Groups on the main dashboard.
Choose “Add Group” to create a new user group and give it a name and assign members to the group. Search by name to show existing users or add a new user to a group. Click the blue “Add” button at the bottom to create the group.
