Is it possible for Piwik to track downloads of files from a hand typed or pasted URL or from a QR code that points diorectly to a file (e.g. www.website.com/filename.ext)? I did some tests and such downloads (copy paste url, type by hand, scan a QR code) do not appear in the stats. I even tried to connect a download link to a campaign but with no results as well.
Why I need this? I’m editing a small RPG fanzine. We want to put up some posters during sci-fi conventions with QR codes on them leading directly to zine issues (pdf, mobi, epub). I want to track such downloads to see if people download the files or not. Can it be done?
Corrected some typos and bad English.
