Download Counter Plugin

Post by fraenkiman » Mon Nov 28, 2022 11:14 pm

Hello all,

I have dug out a legacy plugin for you again and reworked it a bit. The plugin comes from Igor Komin.
The plugin adds a BBCode "download" with a link to the file to download and a counter how many times the file was downloaded.

I have tested the plugin with Smarty 2.6 and 4.
If you are already using FlatPress 1.3dev with Smarty 4, you might have to replace a space in your own name with

Code: Select all

 
This is not very user-friendly, but it works. Maybe someone can track down the cause and fix it.
Details and download can be found in the wiki.
With best regards
Frank

Frank, how would I go about changing the default directory that this plug-in references for the files to be downloaded? I'm trying something unique and I want to download files from a particular directory that isn't fp-content/attachs.

Hello virtualsky,
you would have to change the path in both files.

In the plugin.downloadctr.php file look for the line (~ line 63)

Code: Select all

$download = ATTACHS_DIR . $file;
and replace it with

Code: Select all

$download = './your_directory/' . $file;
In the file download.php look for the line (~ line 27)

Code: Select all

$download = '../../' . ATTACHS_DIR . $downloadFile;
and replace it with

Code: Select all

$download = './your_directory/' . $downloadFile;
To the "new" directory the web server user must also have write permissions.

With best regards

A little suggestion: The plugin crashes if the BBCode plugin is not activated. Solution is easy, just check for the existance of plugin_bbcode_init():

Code: Select all

function plugin_bbcode_downloadctr_tag() {
	if (!function_exists('plugin_bbcode_init')) {
		return;
	}
	$bbcode = plugin_bbcode_init(); // import the "global" bbcode object into current function
All the best,
Arvid
