I would like to be able to add a yes/no to a field in a 'user' database when a logged in user clicks on a link to download a file. The site I have built stores docs and applications. and my client would like to know which user has downloaded a certain application (clicked on a button to 'download' and installer file. Is this possible?
It would be worth creating a new database table which has the user and the file identifiers on it. Then when a user has downloaded a file you can insert a record into this table which indicates which user has downloaded which files. You could include a date as well so that you can see when they have downloaded it. Have a go at creating the table and writing some code, if you still have problems then post your code and I'm sure someone will help.
