The Download Monitor Integration Add On for Paid Memberships Pro adds a “Require Membership” meta box to the “Edit Download” page, allowing you to easily toggle the membership level(s) that can access the download.

When using the [download] shortcode, the non-member will see a link to the membership levels page and a list of the levels that are required to download the file.

The Add On includes unique templates: “pmpro”, “pmpro_box”, “pmpro_button”, “pmpro_filename”, “pmpro_title” to show the non-member a link to the membership levels page and a list of the levels that are required to download the file.

Requires Download Monitor and Paid Memberships Pro installed and activated.

Installation

  1. PMPro Plus members can install the add on via the Memberships > Add Ons admin page.
  2. Or, download the plugin file and upload the pmpro-download-monitor directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory of your site.
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.

How to Use

  1. After activation, navigate to “Downloads” to Edit or Add a New Download.
  2. Check the box for each level that can access this download in the “Require Membership” meta box (below the Publish box in the right sidebar).
  3. Save your changes by clicking the “Update” button (or “Publish” if you are creating a new download).

When using the [download] shortcode you can optionally specify a “pmpro” template. Available templates include: “pmpro”, “pmpro_box”, “pmpro_button”, “pmpro_filename”, “pmpro_title”.

[download template="pmpro_button"]

If you do not specify a template, the output of the [download] shortcode can be filtered for a non-member by using the filter: pmprodlm_shortcode_download_content_filter. This will alter the message shown to a visitor that is not logged in or a logged in user that doesn’t meet membership requirements.
