If you can code with PHP you could point the Download PDF link to a page page which will record the click before showing the link to the file. You can record the click either in a database or a text file using the file system [not sure what the PHP equivalent is but in Classic ASP it's called the FileSystem Object]. eg. - User browses page with PDF links - User Clicks Link to get PDF they want - Link points to counter page and passes unique file ID - counter page updates download count for requested file then displays the real link to the file Not very gracefully put but think you'll get the idea.

If so, it would seem trivial to parse the log file for the filename and confirm the status (200) of the request... HTH, Peter From: "Tom Dell'Aringa" <pixelmech at gmail.com> Hi folks, I have a link to some PDFs people can download. I'd like to easily track how many times the document is actually downloaded. My web stats can show me page accesses but not idividual clicks. Does anyone know how I can accomplish this? This is a wordpress blog so PHP is available.
