It seems spiders are crawling a page containing download links skewering the downloads totals. :dry:  Anyone know how to discourage that practice without stopping them from crawling the page?

You can add a "nofollow" to the download link if it does not already have one. i.e.

Code

<a rel="nofollow" href="downloadlink">download description</a>

Do you have a Samsung Galaxy S / Galaxy S II ? If so, why not check out my ScreenFree FM Radio .

Sorry - I was in a bit of a hurry when starting this thread and I forgot to add one important bit of info… I'm using the [attachment] ... [/attachment] tags linking to the media manager. Would this still work inside Comcode tags?

That sounds like it would end up using ATTACHMENT_DOWNLOAD.tpl, so why not try there.

Thanks, temp. I'll dig into that template this weekend and see what happens.
