This is a free extension for Restrict Content Pro that creates a bridge between RCP and Download Monitor, the terrific plugin for managing file downloads on your site. With this extension, you can set files to only be downloadable by users that have a paid subscription to your WordPress site through Restrict Content Pro.

If you’re selling plugins or themes, or any other kind of digital content via subscriptions, this is the perfect combination for you. Download Monitor handles the file management and delivery perfectly while Restrict Content Pro takes care of the subscriptions. It’s a perfect balance.

When activated, this extension will add the “Restrict this content” meta box to the Edit Download page.

Restrict file downloads meta box

This allows you to set up restrictions for downloads just like you can for posts and pages. You can restrict by subscription level, access level, or role.

If someone attempts to download a file they don’t have access to, they will be shown an error message from your “No Access” page in your Download Monitor settings.
