Am upgrading an old site from v2 - latest version but there are two must have plugins/modules that I can’t find replacement for.
1) Is called “Authentic” and it essentially password protects a download area by-passing the member module. This could have been done by restricting to logged in members but there are several client-specified reasons why we can’t do it this way.
2) This is “Zoo Flexible Admin” and is used to create custom menus - ie the main areas that admin use of the CP will go in custom menus here.
Is there any way of replicating these? Recommendations for modules that do the same thing or workarounds?
There’s an addon https://devot-ee.com/add-ons/protected-links that does protected links. The one you mention “Authentic” I’ve never heard of so it’s likely custom made for the site.
EE6 CP navigation has had a major overhaul, though you can still create custom navigation elements in Settings > Menu manager.
