    I'm looking for either a Word Press plug-in or stand-alone application to add to my website to provide a secure download area for clients. My current method of creating password-protected directories is proving cumbersome.

    I've found many different WP plug-ins, but the main issue with most of them seems to be that they will only allow the posting of single files. One of my key requirements is that I be able to upload client galleries (created using Juice Box Pro) which are a folder with an html index page and several sub-folders with the images, etc. I have no problem paying for commercial software, I just need one that works for me.

    If I remember correctly, @sscarmack had a thread or post on a web client that he liked a couple years ago?

    I use matchforms, not sure if it would meet your needs or not but I love it!

    For some reason I read client contracts instead of galleries!! I use shootproof and you can upload a gallery into your website through them as well as having it password protected :) It is very similar to pixieset

    Thanks James, Paige.. I'm going to check out both of those as it seems there is no WP plugin that will do quite what I want (and damnit, I'm too old and stubborn to change...).

    Thanks!

    You can also try Nextgen Gallery, which allows bulk upload to separate folders. I don't think it does allow bulk download, so that didn't work for me and I had to integrate PixieSet into my site. I still use Nextgen Gallery to display photos on my blog though.

    I was using Nexgen for a while, but my hosting company made a change to something and it borked on me, and hasn't worked properly since.
