I am using directory listing with http://adamwhitcroft.com/apaxy/ theme. Which is obviously not part of WordPress. I am looking for a way to allow only registered subscribers to access + download content from those directories.

I have looked into <?php auth_redirect(); ?> but it seems like it only works if the page/post is already part of WordPress ecosystem.

Is there any way to solve this problem?


You could try configuring your server to pass or “proxy” all requests to your directory through a php script that can check if the user is logged-in.

Check out the following answer for an example of how to do this: https://wordpress.stackexchange.com/a/37743/48165

  • i am accepting your answer because it does link a solution that meets the problem I am facing. But my issues is more convulated than I previously thought - so I will ask another question with more details. Thanks for your time. – bran Dec 16 '16 at 7:15
