Not planned Exclude Commercial Resources from Most Downloaded

Hello there!

I could be wrong, but I think commercial resources should not include the download count. This is due to the fact that there is no file to download as the resources are located off the server. I think it would it be best to exclude commercial resources from the most downloaded tab (example: http://xenforo.com/community/resources/categories/styles.29/?order=download_count)

Or, another option, is to tally the outbound links (tally when people click the orange Buy now for XX.XX), and have an extra tab for them or something.

Thanks,
Mike

Further development related to commercial resources is planned, including a full payment system.
At that point, download tracking will function the same as for any other resource.
Good. But I don't see why you can't download a commercial resource from here.

I would suspect that Xenforo will take a small percentage of the price for allowing the Author to advertise his Addon here on Xenforo.

But they could make the download link to the developer's site OR open a private Conversation with them, developer selects.
As posted above, that's exactly what happens.

The developer has the choice of where to redirect the download button; their own site, PayPal, conversation, etc.
