Hi guys, I’ve been using the WP eMember for about a month now and it seems to have been working well on my end. I’ve been using the Download Folder Protection and it works like a charm.
However, recently (or just today), I noticed even though I was logged in via WP eMember and WordPress (I did auto-log in for wordpress to wpemember), the file required a username and password. Upon typing the username and password, it doesn’t recognize and keeps asking me over and over again (even though logged-in).
The only difference I did today was update the following plugins:
– Contact Form 7
– Digg Digg
– nrelate Related Content
Can you let me know what seems to have caused this? Thank you very much!May 13, 2013 at 11:39 pm #55563wpCommerceModerator
Hi, keep all the plugins deactivated first (except eMember). Now check to see if it is working as expected. If it is you know that there is a conflicting plugin. So start activating one plugin at a time until you see this issue again (that’s the easiest way to find the conflicting plugin). This post has more explanation:May 15, 2015 at 2:54 pm #55564
Hello, I’m trying to use the Download Folder Protection feature. I placed the file in the folder and when I click the button to trigger the download, it asks me for my credentials (I’m not logged in with any account on the website), I put them but instead of downloading the file, the site continuously ask for the credentials. You do mention the .htaccess feature in your tutorial. Can you provide me with some additional info?
Thank youMay 15, 2015 at 3:33 pm #55565
Are you entering the credentials of a valid eMember user?May 15, 2015 at 4:18 pm #55566
Yes, i registered a new user and tried to access the file, and after i inserted the credentials it keeps asking for it. I am sure that they are right because if i login it accepts them.May 15, 2015 at 4:52 pm #55567
Please click the blue “Update” button on the Download Folder Protection page.May 15, 2015 at 5:01 pm #55568
I clicked it but the situation continues, are you sure it’s not related with the “Note: The download folder protection feature requires .htaccess feature to work correctly on your webserver.” that you have on your tutorial?May 15, 2015 at 5:24 pm #55569
…are you sure it’s not related with the “Note: The download folder protection feature requires .htaccess feature to work correctly on your webserver.”
Was an .htaccess file created in the download folder?May 15, 2015 at 5:36 pm #55570
Yes, when i access the FTP and go to the directory, the file is there, the content is:
AuthName “eMember Protected Folder”
require valid-userMay 16, 2015 at 12:37 am #55571
Give us the following details so we can check it:
1) Share a test member username and password:
2) Link to your membership login page (so we can log in using that details)
3) Which page should we go to after that to download the item?May 18, 2015 at 11:07 am #55572
1. Test Member: testuser Pass: 1234
2. Login, [http://babysleepmadesimple.com/?page_id=11739] (you can login from either the member login button top right or the compact login on the left under the header)
3. download page: [http://babysleepmadesimple.com/?page_id=11253] (blue button on the left)May 18, 2015 at 11:49 pm #55573
Looks like you have some kind of a customize login form. I need to see emember’s standard login page.
Give me the URL of the page where you have the following login shortcode:
[wp_eMember_login]May 19, 2015 at 9:47 am #55574
I have the shortcode in two locations:
the login page: [http://babysleepmadesimple.com/?page_id=12924]
and in the header, linked to the login buttonMay 19, 2015 at 11:47 pm #55575
The download worked fine for me (Do exactly the following to test it):
1) I went to the following page and logged in using the standard eMember login:
2) Clicked on the blue download button.
3) Entered the username and password then it downloaded the file.May 25, 2015 at 4:44 pm #55576
I tested again and it indeed worked, thank you for your time
