Time delay?
« on: January 16, 2010, 12:36:12 pm »
A lot of my users are double clicking on the download button, or pressing their mouse slightly too long, so Downloads Pro records more that one download of the same file....

Would it be possible to add a time delay so that if the downloads button is pressed more than once within say 5 seconds it's ignored?

Regards
Eddy

Good idea. I was thinking about that as well. I see it used on file sharing sites such as rapdishare.

Can you please ensure that there's no error message though, or that will be confusing.... I cannot see any genuine user downloading another file within 4-5 seconds, so it should only need to ignore the "Download" click, and not popup an error.

I hope this feature can be added in the near future as it's becoming a bit of a pain for me.... I hope you understand?

Eddy

smfhacks, I should point out that my idea is simply to stop the accidental double and triple download counts, NOT to put a time delay between downloads as some of the file hosting sites do!

I hope that's clear? To me they are two entirely different things as I hope you appreciate?

Following on from my previous posts, one of my users has found another reason for miscounted file totals - Regular users are limited to 10 files per day..... He says:

Hi Eddy,

I may have figured out the miscount problem. My download manager (Internet Download Manager http://www.internetdownloadmanager.com/) uses file segmentation and multipart downloading to speed downloads. Apparently your software counts each segment as a separate attempt to get a file from Paddleducks. Even though the IDM strategy fails with your server, the attempt is still counted against my 10/day limit. I'll try to figure out a way to disable IDM when I download from Paddleducks.

Can anything be done to help prevent this behaviour in Downloads Pro?

Regards
Eddy
