Disabling download

Nov 4, 2008 at 11:05 PM
Has anyone looked at being able to disable download for some podcasts?

In the simplest scenario, this could be a metadata flag set during upload. 

Any thoughts/suggestions?

Hi kamcgreg,

To disable downloads the PKSItem.xls and PKSItemDetail.xsl would need to be modified. These files are used to generate the Grideview and PodcastDetail page which exposes the download links.

Editing these files and including new logic would allow the control of downloading.  The simplest scenario would be to create a new column and check the column in the XSL's to verify if the download link should be displayed. For more complex scenarios edit and add logic accordingly.

What about the Sptember release?
I want to disable downloading at September release but I cannot find PKSItemDetail.xsl
