    I have the same issue.

    When I take a look into my visitor log, the sites I click were tracked, but if I click on one of the DLM downloads - they don't show up.

    Before the upgrade from legacy version to the new 1.3.0 the downloads of the download monitor where tracked in piwik. So I assume there must have been a change in the new version.

    Can you pls change DLM again, so that my downloads where tracked with Piwik? :-)

    same problem here :-( can't track my downloads neither with piwik nor with google analytics anymore. that's very odd, because it worked fine with the legacy version... can u mike jolley, as the developer of wordpress download monitor, make it work again? :-)

    To anyone experiencing the same issue, here is a solution:

    Force a Click on a Link to be Recorded as a Download in Piwik

    If you want Piwik to consider a given link as a download, you can add the 'piwik_download' css class to the link:

    <a href='last.php' class='piwik_download'>Link I want to track as a download</a>

    Note: you can customize and rename the CSS class used to force a click to be recorded as a download:

    // now all clicks on links with the css class "download" will be counted as downloads
    // you can also pass an array of strings _paq.push(['setDownloadClasses', "download"]);
