Count download hits too
How can I count Download software hits?


I mean I am running a script directory and would like to count outgoing hits by "Download" also, if possible I would also like to display "total" of "visit site" hits + " download" hits.

Thanks for all the help in advance.

You'd have to do the following:

1) Add a column called Downloads (INT, NOT NULL, Default=0)

2) Create another table similar to the Hit_Track table and call it something like Download_Track

3) Then copy your jump.cgi script and in that script rather than incrementing the "Hits" field, increment the "Download" column.

4) Then you'd have to add a global or plugin for the build script to refresh the Download "count" similar to how "HIts" are refreshed in the database on each build.

You only need a new column to increment, not a new table. Then you could create a small custom cgi script based on jump.cgi:

$DB->table('Links')->update( { Downloads => \'Downloads + 1' }, { ID => $some_id } );

Btw the table is ClickTrack not Hit_Track

Check my detail_page.cgi plugin. It counts site_visits, which is analogous to what you are wanting to do.
