#28748 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Add an action hook before file loading process for Multisite medias starts in wp-includes/ms-files.php

My suggestion is adding a action hook in wp-includes/ms-files.php so that plugins can stop or do something before the file loading process begins.

I wanted to limit access to files if visitor is not logged in to the network.

Can you expand on how you want to "limit access to files to non-logged in users"? There's probably a way to do this already, which wouldn't require a new hook.

All files are publicly accessible if someone has the URL. You would need to do something at the .htaccess level to change this.

Providing some sort of method of password protection for static assets is appealing, though if handled through ms-files.php, it would likely be security through obscurity as the files all have static locations.

As ms-files was deprecated in 3.5 - see #19235 - and per #20527, we likely won't be adding enhancements to the current core ms-files. As nacin mentions in that ticket - "Rather than using wp-includes/ms-files.php, you could always use wp-content/ms-files.php and change your rewrite rules."

Thank you ericlewis and jeremyfelt.

I'll have a look at /wp-content/ms-files.php to change rewrites.
