Tracking downloads

Hi. I’ve been needing to track downloads, as the website I am using cares a lot about the downloads it generates. Firstly, right-clicking and selecting “save link as…” doesn’t track a download using the Piwik javascript. Is there a way to fix this?

Secondly, when importing logs for tracking (since the javascript doesn’t track the above),is there a way to track 206 downloads as separate from other downloads? Currently, this causes a separate download to be tracked for each 206 download, so if someone were to use a download manager which creates 20 or so different sockets, 20 different downloads will be tracked for Piwik.


  1. no way to fix AFAIK
