    Hi all,

    i have a folder in my DNN project which contains a PDF documents where clients can upload thier files,

    after uploading the files to the folder, the link will be like :
    is there anyway i can make this link depends on the authintication of DNN, because the problem now that anyone with this link even he is not logged in the site can view it,

    what iam thinking is there any configuration value i can add to web.config so my DNN site considers the root folder [filestore] as a secured folder and the viewer should be logged in to view any contents in it, so a login screen should appear or even an access denied error appear,

    thx alot for helping

      There is a concept of "Secure" folders, if you use that, the file is only available by a handler (LinkClick.aspx) and you are able to restrict the permission to that folder (e.g. to registered users or to Administrators etc.)

      There is a module on the market called "Evotiva User Files", I recommend to have a look at it - it stores the uploaded files in the user directory.

      Happy DNNing!
