User Level Access

Hello, before I purchase the Music Collection I have a question regarding user level access. We are a small record label would like to use the application to showcase our music catalog. So we were wondering if it is possible to have 2 levels of front end user access?

Level 1 - allows the general public can listen to our music tracks and create playlists, but not download.
Level 2 - our professional clients can apply for a user account where, in addition to the above features, they can download individual tracks, albums or playlists for free.

At the beginning of 2013 someone mentioned on this forum that they were using something called Phoca download to do this, but has any internal Music Collection solution been developed to do this?

    Hello Brian,

    Phoca dowload does not have much to do with this..

    what you describe requires a little bit of custom coding work, basically to grant users access to download or not, depending on their access level.

    Many thanks for your quick response Germinal.

    Is custom coding a service that you offer, or could most Joomla coders do this easily?

      hello Brian, yes, custom cosing is a (paying) service we offer. other joomla coders should be able to do it as well, as long as their familiar with joomla coding and "they know what they're doing!" ;)
