Count the number of downloads without having to maintain a comprehensive download page.

Because nobody downloaded any file yet. Simple Download Monitor does not scan all available files and assign "zero" downloads to them; instead, it starts with an empty list and populates it with attempted downloads. If you want to see something, just try to download one of the monitored files.
The most common cause is that your webhoster doesn't support user-definable .htaccess and/or mod_rewrite, both of which are required for the expected (standard) behavior of Simple Download Monitor. The second common cause is a misconfigured .htaccess.
You can verify that Simple Download Monitor itself is running by using a specially-formatted URL for download: instead of
try this URL:
This URL calls Simple Download Monitor directly, without any interaction with mod_rewrite, and should therefore work at all times (unless there is a bug in Simple Download Monitor or its installation went wrong). If it succeeds, you know the problem lies either in your .htaccess file or in the fact that the required functionality is not provided by your webhosting.
Your webhosting still uses PHP version 4. While there is nothing that Simple Download Monitor actually NEEDS from PHP 5, the use of newer PHP allows for a (slightly) cleaner code and better future maintenance. Unfortunately, it is not possible to contain both PHP 4 and 5 code in a single file without sacrificing readability.
In the distribution archive you will find a 7Z archive containing a PHP 4 version of the plugin. Just extract it over your existing Simple Download Monitor installation to get PHP 4 compatibility. (You can extract the archive using 7-Zip, http://www.7-zip.org )
Please note that this rewrite was only tested on PHP 5, where it does work (PHP 5 is backwards compatible with PHP 4), but it may not work on a real PHP 4 as I have no test machine for it. But I will fix any errors that are reported to me.
There is no such functionality in Simple Download Monitor itself, because
the user interface would become needlessly complex. You can achieve the
same result through a proper record in the
.htaccess file. See this
comment for an example (Richie, 2010-07-21):
Requires: 2.8.0 or higher
Compatible up to: 3.4.2
