download by Anonymous - how to stop?
« on: 12.02.2018 12:39:48 »
Hi,

I created a user group for registered members and I did the setup so only they should be able to download files.

Today an anonymous downloaded the files, how can I stop this?

Name : visitor
Usergroup : invited

Thanks for your reply

Hi
If the permissions setup is correct then it does work.
One common thing that is misunderstood is the Inheritance.  If the user who is able to download belongs to a UG whos Parenent, Grand Parent or similar of Registered then by inheritance they are also members of the Registered UG.
To fully understand  I would need to know the setup of your jD categories, the User group sructure and what permission for which UG.  I f you like I will look at your site but for that I would need super user details sent to me by PM - clck on whitish square with a little tail near my name in this response

Hi

that looks basically right but it is hard to tell working from screen images as there are a lot of possibilities
