Download Counter via Link


#1

Hey guys,

I have a nice suggestion for a new feature. In my blog I’d like to include a downloadable ZIP-file. My blog posts are published in several public feedreaders, so some of my readers aren’t “really” on my blog post page. Piwik is just able to count downloads via outgoing links to some file extentions.

My suggestion: Give a download-link-click-counter that counts actual clicks. They could look like this:


http://piwik.domain.com/download.php?file=http://domain.com/download.zip

Every click on this link, no matter whether the reader is in fact on the blog post, gives a +1 to the downloadcounter.

What do you think?

Cheers, Nooster
