niteoweb.downloadcounter 1.1dev

Counts how many time was a File content type downloaded and displays this number on File view page.


niteoweb.downloadcounter is a simple Plone add-on. It counts how many times has a default File content type been downloaded. It displays this value in a viewlet below File’s title.


This package requires Plone 4.0 or later (tested on 4.0a4).

Installing without buildout

Install this package in either your system path packages or in the lib/python directory of your Zope instance. You can do this using either easy_install or via the script.

Installing with buildout

If you are using buildout to manage your instance installing niteoweb.downloadcounter is even simpler. You can install niteoweb.downloadcounter by adding it to the eggs line for your instance:

eggs = niteoweb.downloadcounter

After updating the configuration you need to run the ”bin/buildout”, which will take care of updating your system.

Go to the ‘Site Setup’ page in the Plone interface and click on the ‘Add/Remove Products’ link.

Choose the product (check its checkbox) and click the ‘Install’ button.
