I need to secure access to some uploaded files for members only.
How to do it? - unfortunately Secure Files module doesn't work in newest SilverStripe version :-(

Check to see if the module has been forked at all ( as someone might be working on a 3.0 version, otherwise contact the maintainer and see if they have any plans to update the module.

Hi pga, I've just updated the parts of the module I need for a project I'm working on - namely Group based permissions (but not individual Members or Token access). It's a bit hacky I guess but it's "working for me" :)

I'm not totally across pushing and pulling and carrying on on github yet, but like I said this is a rushed and unfinished update to the mod anyway, so I'm just zipping it up and attaching it to this thread for now. If I get the chance I'll try a pull request into the mod repo properly later in the week.

As I said though, I've now got it working for me. Hope it helps.

Hey dizzystuff,

Would you mind explaining how you got the updateCMSFields method to work? I have the following:

public function updateCMSFields(FieldList $fields) {

  $secureFilesTab = $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Security',
                                new HeaderField(_t('SecureFiles.SECUREFIETABNAME',


but I am receiving an error:
Error at framework/forms/FieldList.php line 288: FieldList::addFieldToTab() Tried to add a tab to object 'FieldList' - 'Root' didn't exist.

Not seeing the attachment...

Don't suppose someone is able to send me over a version of the Secure Files module that works on v3? I really need it for a project that's going live soon. silverstripeforum[at]

Thank you! :)
