I know this has been talked before but there must be a way to protect posts attachments from any visitor that knows the url. At least force him to register or something.

Recently i have done some work for a script and posted it as attachment in a wpForo forum and after i while i found the attachment link posted in several place.

Thanks

Searching i found this:

https://wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/194820/prevent-image-from-being-accessible-via-url-as-a-post

for Wordpress images and attachments. Maybe it could be modified to work for wpForo attachments ?

Or do something like that ?

the wpForo developers will find some workaround for this in future updates. I've already let them know.

@sofy Thank you.

I'm looking for a quick and simple solution for this, something like "if a visitor is pointing to an attachment link, redirect him to something else".
