There may come the day in a Moodle admin's life when a teacher requests to protect his course resources from unauthorized access even beyond the mechanisms which Moodle already provides and when this teacher comes up with the idea of adding a "password protection" to uploaded resources. If you had a discussion like this, this plugin is for you.

Please see README file for details about the usage and features of this plugin.

    According to https://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDLSITE-2322 inline PHPDocs are allowed in exactly the situation they are used in this plugin.

    No worries guys. Prechecker results are meant as rough information about the overall coding style compliance. We do not discriminate solely on them, and we are aware of limits and some bugs (false positives) there.

    BTW see CONTRIB-6025 for more info on the situation about inline phpdocs.

    Very well done.
    Nicely written plugin, works as expected, nice documentation (you might want to fix the typo "Due to limited ressources").
    We definitely want this in plugins DB asap!

    Thanks for the praise and thanks for pointing me to the typo (caused by my german mother's tongue where resources is written with 2 "s") smile

    This plugin was developed against Moodle 3.1 - it might work with earlier versions of Moodle, but you would have to edit the $plugin->requires line in version.php, otherwise Moodle will refuse to install it.

    Alexander, thanks, great plugin. Very useful. Should be very popular.
    I use it to limit students access to a chat room.
