    Sorting and total number of plugins (as well as cumulative ratings) are in the works. We’ve discussed the idea of writing a widget for end users… so stay in touch!

    Very nice and easy to use. The output could be a bit better looking I think, perhaps look a bit more like my own Plugin info widget: http://bonny.github.io/jQuery-WordPress-Plugin-Widget/?

    Anyway: nice job, it’s a very convenient way to check up your download stats!

    WP Tally is great! Love it!

    But what would be even better would be if this was added to the plugins page for the wordpress.org profiles. At the moment it lists all your plugins and the download count for each, but no total or any other information for each plugin. It would be great if it looked something like WP Tally.

    I know it’s a bit rude to look at the hard work these guys have put in and then turn around and say actually this would be better on .org, but I do think that would be a better result for everyone.

    Anyway, perhaps that’s for the future. In the mean time, I’ll enjoy WP Tally! :)

      This might be a dumb question, but… why?

      Numbers are cool and fun to look at, but generally speaking, before I display a number, I wasn’t to know the usefulness of it, that it’s accurate, and that it has some overall meaning.

      I’m not seeing the overall value here, is all. Why does this number matter?

        I guess the total is mainly for plugin authors as some form of validation. I think most plugin authors are going to be interested in their total download count. I know the count includes downloads of updates, so doesn’t reflect actual usage and is therefore less meaningful, but that’s what we have at the moment.

        From the average user’s point of view, it might help them work out whether to trust a plugin author, although using total number of downloads for that that is definitely flawed. But how many average users visit a plugin author’s profile page anyway?

        Note, I wasn’t just talking about the total number. I was also talking about the other information for each plugin. I know when I looked my WP Tally page, I saw a couple of the plugins had Last Updated dates from 2009! A bit of a wake up call! Also seeing the average rating for each of your plugins very quickly from one spot was interesting as well.

        This sort of stuff would help users decide whether to trust a plugin author (if they ever visit this page).

        Is there a good reason not to display last updated, average rating etc, on this page? I’m asking that genuinely, as I’m guessing wordpress.org needs to take a lot of things into consideration from a performance point of view. I think it would be useful.

    I created a plugin with shortcode and widget functionality which uses wptally.com API. You are welcome to check it: https://wordpress.org/plugins/plugins-downloads-counter/

    I can say that the website definitely made me very happy :)

    Didn’t realise my plugins in total had so many downloads!

    I was working on a personal site two weeks ago and had a need for pulling total download counts (total from today, as well as all time downloads ) from the repo, and displaying it nicely in my sidebar. I ended up writing a custom widget to do just that.

    Wp plugin download counter

    I didn’t know there was a real need to display repo stats on a users site, or I may have gone ahead and done something similar!

    Great job to the team over at EDD!

    Great idea, great site. :-)

    How about a widget showing the users with most downloads?

    Just the ones that have been searched, so it won’t need any cron actions ;-)

    I am posting with my WordPress.com account as the G+ account didn’t seem to work.

    (Oddly nor the WP account worked for Firefox, I am trying with Chrome now)
