Download Count

Description

This plugin will record clicks of shortcode [downloadCount] and shows it on posts list. Comes convenient if you’re a setting up
a site to use download pages of products/publications as posts. Multiple shortcodes won’t work since it’s on the convention of
one product per post.

Things make it nice:

  • Easily add this literally short shortcode [downloadCount] and get your link appeared.
  • Numerous HTML attributes are available so you can customize as you wish.
  • View download count right from the WP post list.
  • No dashboard menu entry (yet) to help you keep the backend clean.
  • Optimized speed with minimal resource usage.
  • It’s not just for downloads but any link you prefer to be tracked.

Shortcode attributes:

  • link= Your link to the download. Protocol (http/https) must be mentioned.
  • title= Text to be appeard as the link. Default: “Download”.
  • style= For CSS inline styles.
  • class= For CSS classes.

Tip: You can use even icons (or HTML codes) on title attribute.

Example shortcode:
[downloadCount link=”http://thambaru.com” title=”My website” style=”text-decoration:none;” class=”btn btn-success”]
