Plugin Download Count is a neat plugin to display total downloads of all of your themes and plugins on WordPress.org. I’d like to use it to display download count on my theme page but unfortunately it cannot display single theme/plugin download data: it displays total downloads of all theme and plugin.

However, thank to its GPL license, I’m able to fork it freely. I cannot find any “official” repository for it so I just init new repo based on the file I downloaded from WordPress.org. I branched it out, add some codes, then use it. Now it ables to display download count for each theme / plugin:

Plugin Download Count at Opus Theme page. Pretty neat, don't you think?

I wish other folks can use it too and I wish WP Cube & Tim Carr would incorporate it to the original plugin so I published it at GitHub.

There are more stuff to be done (updating the readme, etc). However it works as I want it now. GPL rocks.
