Quick reminder - Content Links allow you to protect specific content (e.g. PDFs, videos, etc.) via a link you place on Member Pages (or anywhere else).

You choose how your members interact with each Content Link. The options are a popup, a download, or an embed (depending on the type of content).

Below are the different types of Content Links you can have along with the member interactions options:

PDF Content Links

  • Show in browser when the link is clicked
  • Download the PDF when the link is clicked

Video Content Links (more info)

  • Popup the video when the link is clicked
  • Turn the link automatically into an embed of the video (without a click)

Audio Content Links (mp3 only)

  • Download the mp3 when the link is clicked
  • Turn the link automatically into an embed audio player (without a click)

Image Content Links

  • Download the image when the link is clicked
  • Popup the image when the link is clicked
  • Turn the link automatically into an embed of the image (without a click)

HTML Content Links

  • Turn the link automatically into an embed output of the HTML (without a click)

File Content Links

Anything that is not a PDF, image, mp3, HTML, or video counts as a file

  • Download the file when the link is clicked

Before adding your Content Links to your Member Pages, you should edit them to make sure the following fields are how you want them:

You can always edit these fields in the future, but if you change "What can members do with this content" you'll need to manually replace that Content Link you placed on any Member Pages.
