Easily manage downloadable files and monitor downloads of your digital files from your WordPress site.
I developed the Simple Download Monitor plugin because I needed a nice way to manage my digital downloads and monitor the number of downloads of my files and documents.
This plugin is very useful for managing and tracking your digital file download counts.
You can password protect your downloadable files and documents too (visitors will require a password before downloading the file when you use this option).
There is an option to show an ajax file tree browser so your visitors can browse all your files and download the ones they want.
You can configure downloadable files from your WordPress admin dashboard via an elegant user interface. Then allow your visitors to download the files and this plugin will monitor which files get downloaded how many times.
The plugin will log the IP addresses of the users who download your digital files and documents. It will also log the date and time of each download.
It has a very user-friendly interface for uploading, managing, monitoring and tracking file downloads.
View more details on the download monitor plugin page.
Once you have installed the plugin, go to "Downloads -> Settings" interface to configure some options
A) Configure Download Monitor basic settings
B) Add a new download
To configure a new download follow these steps:
You can view all of your existing downloads from the "Downloads->Downloads" interface.
C) Create a download button
Create a new post/page and click the "SDM Downlaods" TinyMCE button to insert a shortcode (This button will only show up if you haven't unchecked it in the settings). You can choose to display your download with a nice looking box or just a plain download link/button.
Example Shortcode Usage:
[sdm_download id="271" fancy="1"]
(embed a download button inside a box with other information e.g. Thumbnail, Title and Description)
[sdm_download id="271" fancy="0"]
(embed a plain download button/link for a file)
D) Download logs
You can check the download stats from the "Downloads->Logs" interface. It shows the number of downloads for each files, IP address of the user who downloaded it, date and time of the download.
