    Hello there,
    I have a pre-download question. Does this plugin track also when a user download a file from a page, like for example a pdf file?
    Thanks

    Hi! That functionality is not built in, but it is possible to use the Simple History API to log custom events, for example downloads. It would require some custom code however. I can’t give you the code but the pseudo code would be something like:

    – Add javascript code that listens to clicks on PDF files
    – When file is clicked send an Ajax request to the WordPress backend
    – The WordPress backend receives the request and adds a log entry to the Simple History log

    This is just a quick writeup, depending on your setup you could solve it in a completely different way…
