What can my users find on the updated Profile > Purchased Content tab?

The updated User Profile, found at https://www.YOURDOMAIN.com/user/profile when the user is logged in, now contains a tab called Purchased Content. It contains a wealth of features that will be useful to you and your readers.

The tab holds

  • links to all of the reader's purchased downloadable files,
  • links to purchased premium content on your site, and,
  • in the case of purchased audio or video files,
  • the ability to play those files from the website on-demand.

We've given you the ability to control a number of items on this page with regard to layout and messaging.

As with the other User/Profile tabs, the sidebar can be turned on or off.
