Limit download to premium users


Recommended Posts

Yes, it is possible but not via settings, but via template.

In Website UI -> Pages -> View Video page -> video_view block template there is the following code to render download links:

{{foreach item="item" from=$data.download_formats}}
		{{assign var="format_lang_key" value=$item.postfix|replace:".":"_"}}
		<a href="{{$item.file_url}}" data-attach-session="{{$session_name}}">{{$lang.videos.video_details_label_download_format[$format_lang_key]|default:"%1%, %2%"|replace:"%1%":"`$item.title`"|replace:"%2%":$item.file_size_string}}</a>


What you should do is change this:


with this:

{{if $smarty.session.status_id==3}}href="{{$item.file_url}}"{{elseif $smarty.session.user_id>0}}href="{{$lang.urls.upgrade}}" data-fancybox="ajax"{{else}}href="{{$lang.urls.login_required}}" data-fancybox="ajax"{{/if}}


So KVS will still display download links, but if non-premium user clicks this link there will be either login dialog (user is not logged in), or upgrade dialog (user is not premium status) displayed.

Hi, it didn't work for me.

here's my snippet

{{foreach item="item" from=$data.download_formats}}
										{{assign var="format_lang_key" value=$item.postfix|replace:".":"_"}}
										<a href="{{$item.file_url}}&download_filename=mysite_{{$data.dir}}{{$item.postfix}}" data-attach-session="{{$session_name}}">{{$lang.videos.video_details_label_download_format[$format_lang_key]|default:"%1%, %2%"|replace:"%1%":"`$item.title`"|replace:"%2%":$item.file_size_string}}</a>

<a {{if $smarty.session.user_id>0}}href="{{$item.file_url}}&download_filename=mysite_{{$data.dir}}{{$item.postfix}}"{{else}}href="{{$lang.urls.login_required}}" data-fancybox="ajax"{{/if}} data-attach-session="{{$session_name}}">{{$lang.videos.video_details_label_download_format[$format_lang_key]|default:"%1%, %2%"|replace:"%1%":"`$item.title`"|replace:"%2%":$item.file_size_string}}</a>

Should not brake anything.
