    Hi

    Download Monitor is not counting, the download is working but the count is not incremented.

    I tried to rollback to a previous version (tried 4.5.93 & 4.5.92) with no results.
    I tried to rollback the WP core, also no results.

    The same is happening in 2 domains and the respecting local copies.
    The one I linked here is a good example because is a public download and has a public counter.

    Thanks
    Alain

    Hi @caban13,

    Do you have a caching plugin on the site?
    I just tried to replicate this issue on my test site, but it seems to be working ok.

    This might be caused by another plugin/theme. Can you please try installing this plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/health-check/ ?

    After you install and activate the above plugin it has a Troubleshooting mode which allows you to have a vanilla WordPress session, where all plugins are disabled, but only for your user – your visitors will still see the normal website.

    Go to its troubleshoot mode and activate only this plugin and see if this happens with a default theme and no other plugins.

    Looking forward to your reply!

    Warmly,
    Mihaela

    Hi

    I have been experimenting with the “Health” plugin, it is interesting, but I continue without a resolution.

    Initially all plugins are disabled, then I enable just “Download Monitor” and I receive the following error: “When activating the download-monitor plugin, an error occurred on the website. Therefore, this change was automatically reversed.”

    The weird part is that the page I linked was created a year ago, with the same cache plugin and it counted more than 4000 downloads. Now it stopped counting, I don’t know since when it stopped.

    The problem really sound like cache issue… I tried my local install, after clearing cookies, it started working fine. So it is not a “Download Monitor” issue, I will close this ticket.

    Thanks

    At the end, it was “download monitor” issue, since version 4.5.9.
    See: https://github.com/WPChill/download-monitor/issues/854
    I was always logged in as admin.
    Is there a way to enable/disable this “feature” ?

    Hey @caban13 ,

    If you go to dashboard > Downloads > Advanced > Logging there should be a setting called Admin count that disables the admin download count.

    Warmly,
    Razvan.
