The new Download Monitor plugin uses Custom Post Types to store download data, whereas previous versions used custom database tables. This plugin will convert the following to the new format:

  • Downloads
  • Tags
  • Categories

To get started, simply go to Tools > Import and click “Download Monitor Legacy Importer”.

After import, the old tablesĀ will not be deleted. When you are happy that the import has been completed successfully you can delete the old tables manually.

Old download shortcodes containing download IDs will mismatch after import because of the new data structure. Whilst active, the legacy plugin will step in if a legacy download ID is called, however it is recommended that you update your content with new IDs to prevent errors.
