Looking for a little help. I'm using views_pdf to generate a downloadable PDF for my users. A call to the PDF view does not generate any rows in the accesslog table. Is there a Drupal function I can use to write to the accesslog? Or do I need to build an INSERT SQL statement manually in a hook?
Basically, the PDF download is our conversion goal. Business users (given access to the admin reports) want a quick view of how many hits to the PDF there have been over a specific time period. We also want to eventually export these hits (and their associated users) to develop leads, so it is important to capture these in the database.
Any help is appreciated. Is this something I should create an issue for? Is a module responsible for writing to the accesslog? What triggers a write to accesslog? An HTML page being generated?
