I am trying to enable to be able to view the downloadable products before I publish them.
I have tried changing directory permissions of the WooCommerce uploads folder, but always when I try opening the file URL from the Admin panel, it gives a forbidden 403 error. If I try opening from the Media menu in the WP dashboard or from the single Product page within the WP dashboard it gives me this error.
As an admin of the site I want check everything that gets uploaded and submitted to my marketplace. I would first like to verify the quality of the downloadable product before allowing it to go on sale and for the public to buy it.
So when a new product is submitted, I go to the WooCommerce Products page, where I select the one I would like to approve. All products will be downloadable, I go and check the URL that WordPress gives, where my seller has uploaded his item. When I try opening that link it gives me a 403 forbidden error.
The same thing happens if I go to my Media within the WP Dashboard and try opening the uploaded item through there.
How could I easily inspect these items before publishing them?
