Download Counter

Extensions > Plugins > Download Counter

Here's a simple technique for keeping track of how many times a file is downloaded.

1) Create a special download page for each download file, (named downloads.filename) with only the following two lines of content:

[(info counter page=site.downloads field=filename)]
<(forward http://www.domain.com/files/yourfile.zip)>

2) Create a link like the following. It can be on any page:

[[downloads.filename|Your File]] (//Downloaded  {site.downloads::filename} times.//)

Basically the link takes them to the download page which triggers the counter and then forwards them to the file they want--all in a flahs.
