    This plug in works quite well but I, and my client, are really disappointed at the lack of a viable solution for email notification of downloads. Other forum posts here “jokingly” suggest hiring a developer. Why would we need to do this when you are the developer? Spend additional funds to have what could be a baked in feature. At the very least provide another solution? Has anyone else found a way to do this?

    Add the following code at the end of download-manager/functions.php

    function wpdm_download_notification($package){
    wp_mail("your-email-here", "New Download: {$package['title']}","your message here","From: no-reply@sitename.com\r\n");
    }
    
    add_action("before_download", "wpdm_download_notification");

    Hi,

    I have added this to functions.php but it is not picking up on the package name and it is sending 2 emails out

    Also is there anyway to add the email address when using email lock into the email?

    Thanks,
