All is fine, everything works, visitors of your web can click on the download link and they are served the file from wordpress.org and your download manager counts the hits on the files. But maybe you would like it not to show only the hits that people do on your own blog, but all the hits that your plugin or theme gets, including the ones when people find the download directly on WordPress.org site, not just through your blog.
This plugin solves it. It runs in the background, it checks if you are using one of the supported download managers, it goes through the downloads registered, and if it finds a download that has URL pointing to plugins or themes at WordPress.org, it will automatically update the hits from there to your download manager.
All is done automatically in the background. The functionality is run in the background by WordPress built-in cron. The plugin has no configuration. If you don't have any download manager installed or you do not list any download pointing to plugin or theme at WordPress.org, this plugin will simply "do nothing", but it will not damage your site.
