Well, creators like stats
For anyone who uploads stuff to MTS you may have seen a groovy little thing on your User Control panel (the MTS one that is). There is a list of all your uploads and how many times they have been downloaded. There is also some fancy pants stuff going on where you can see downloads per day etc etc - but blimey that graph can take a while to load (and MTS is on a private server)
Of course, I wanted that on LeeFish too, but while it was just me who wanted it I thought it would be a tad egotistical to spend a lot of time on something that only I wanted. And it would be a lot of time as that is a fairly advanced plugin.
However, BoilingOil threw a random request into the shoutbox (which I have since added to the requests
area in the Site projects) and I decided to have a go at it.
I have the query, now I need to get it into plugin form to show on the Control Panel.
Lets keep it simple right now - it will be a list of the uploads and the number of downloads for each upload. It will not total up at the bottom (though I will add that to the wishlist) and it will not show number of downloads on day x. Lets just get it showing first
And here is a preview of how it looks (using my page, user names and other data covered to protect the innocent)
