Which plugin can send to me an email for each download made? WordPress

  • SOLVED

I need to install one plugin or whatever solution about downloads.
I woul like to receive an email telling me, data about the visitor and the respective file or files downloaded by him.

I use WP-Downloads but I don´t know if it can send me this kind of email, but in Joomla I had a Jdownload and I received for each file download, the time, IP, Name, email so that I could send quickly and email to the downloader sending info about the software downloaded by him.

Thank you for the solution you can provide to me.

This plugin will do what you are wanting to do. It integrates with the contact form 7 plugin also.

Hi Ross,

Thank you very much for your reply.
It´s OK but I need to implement Contact Form 7 additionally to Download Monitor and, nowadays all forms in my site are in Wp-Forms.
I really like to have one that can read or use the records of Download Monitor to send me the info.

Please consider that your info to me is correct and the payment is yours, really, but if you have any other idea, and if you can reply to me, thank you so much.

Best regards,

Marcos Depresbiteris


Ross Wilson comments:

That is the only plugin I could find that works out of the box. You may be able to hire someone to customize this plugin to work with wp-forms. There shouldn't be any issue installing wp-forms and contact form 7 at the same time either if you want to go that route.


mdepresb comments:

Thank you very much Ross.

Best regards,

Ross,

This is my first time here: Should I do something to release your payment? Where in this site?


Ross Wilson comments:

Under the original question at the top there is a link to "Vote to award prize", it should take you to this address where you can select the answer and allocate the prize.

Hi Marcos,

the idea of this system is to pay the one who solves your problem. You do not have to pay the first one who comes around.
No offence but Ross' answer is an answer but not the perfect one for you yet.

It seems to me you would be better of with just a mail function that hooks into your download action. There are people around here who are more than capable of doing that.

In the end when the time limit is reach you can decide whether the answers given were worth your money. Even if you didn't get the right answer you can decide to divide the money and reward more than one person.

Don't spent your money to quickly.


mdepresb comments:

Thank you very much for your explanation: I thought that the first person replying is the owner of the prize, but according your explanation, the system is much better than I understood at firs sight.

Thank you for this oppotunity to evaluate and thank you very much to Ross to quickly embrace my cause.

I will do as you advised me.

Just Me comments:

If I understand correctly you want Contact From 7 to work with Download Monitor. Do you have one of the two already active, or both? Do you provide free downloads or are people buying your files?

I know it may seem a weird question but sometimes there are more ways to go from A to B.

- have a download link on a page, and let the system send a message to you when someone downloads your file
- have a form on a page, once submitted the visitor of your website gets an email message with a download link, and you get a message too.
- use some webshop plugin like WooCommerce (I am a Shopp fan but that plugin is not free :) ) to take care of things.


mdepresb comments:

Just Me, thank you

In my case my environment is:

WP 3.4
Download Monitor
WP-Forms

I really try to find in the Download Monitor any feature that can alert me in each download but I did´t find, so that I am asking for this help.
I can change the downlod monitor to another with this feature but I don´t know if there are. ( As I said, in Joomla I have Jdownloads, and it has this feature).

My site has several softwares do download so that, for each download, I need to know the software downloaded to send tips and info about to the person who had downloaded.

I don´t want to change WP-Forms to other becuase it´s easyu to me deal with it.

So, if anyone can suggest a complete plugin to use, with this function, or a plugin, could be better (this avoid to ressemble all links).

Thank you again Just Me

Just Me comments:

Ok I misread your conversation about WP-forms and Contact Form 7 with Ross.

If you can give me temporary access to your WordPress admin I could take a look.
You can send information using my profile.

And don't worry, if I can't solve it you still don't have to pay, no matter the effort :)


mdepresb comments:

Hi Just Me,

You are very kind.

But according our internal affairs, I am not autorized to share any importante info as you need to help me, that would be very nice certainly, since I have this challenge to solve.
Sorry, really sorry.

I would like to thank you for this great support and I hope to retribute telling about this website to everyone I know.

Sincerely,

Marcos Depresbiteris


Just Me comments:

No problem, I understand.


Just Me comments:

Just a quick note. People will ask for access to your WordPress admin from time to time, coz it is too much trouble to set up a test envrionment with the plugins used (if freely available at all).

Another thing you may want to try is to contact the plugin developer and ask him to add the feature to his plugin.

If you have the skills and time to do it you could try to add this function to your files http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_mail

Doug Montgomery answers:

I'll echo what 'Just Me' said... take the full 3 days. You'll find someone here who'll figure it out. I personally recommend Arnav myself, he's pretty on top of things and knows his way around WP like it was his kitchen. Cookin up all kinds of stuff.

Give it some time.


mdepresb comments:

Doug good day,

Thank you very much for your advice, very important to me because beyond to be a Beginner in Word Press I am having my first experience here.

I will have much more doubts certainly an I will use this brilliant site/idea to pay for help.

Thank you

If you have problems with spam filters using standard mail function in WordPress, remember to use this plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/hgk-smtp/ to configure an SMTP account in a external SMTP server.


mdepresb comments:

Dear Francisco,

Thank you for your concern to help me.

The problem is diferent:

I use WP Download and, altough WP downlod keeps the logs who made download, I would like to receive, as administrator I am, automatically, an email telling me info about each file and respective visitor data.

With ths information, I can send automatically answers or even emails about tips, datasheets regarding the product that the visitos downloaded.

Do you know any plugin that works with WP download and can do this for me? or even another solution?

Thank you in advance.
