DownloadsII

DownloadsII is a download database that integrates into vBulletin. It allows you to upload files, add images to them, create categories, link to external files - and more. It is very flexible and has many options.

It's also coded 100% XHTML 1.0 Transitional valid, just like vBulletin itself.



Instructions & Support

Requires vBulletin 4.0.4 or higher. Not fully compatible with lower vB 4 versions.
It works fine with both the new editor in vB 4.1.4 or higher and the old one in previous vB versions.

Read the instructions in the next two posts before installing/upgrading this mod!

You can find an installation/upgrade manual in the zip package (Readme.txt).

I try to answer most questions asked in this thread. Please don't send any pm's if I don't ask for them. Don't forget to click the install link, so you will receive important update notifications.

Screenshots & Live demo

At the bottom of this post, you can find some screenshots of the front-end and back-end (AdminCP part) of the DownloadsII software.

You can find a live demo on my own site: Minatica.be Downloads (Dutch).
Though keep in mind that we are running a restyled and modified version of it.

Changelog (version 6.0.9)

Jelle
  • Added support for vB 4.1.8 bit processing with 'each' construct (backwards compatible)
  • Fixed comma listing for vB 4.1.8 (using "old" method)
Older changelogs are included in the zip package.

Help!!! I can't upload large files??

This is probably the most asked question. It's mostly caused by some default PHP settings: check "PHP Max Post Size" and "PHP Maximum Upload Size" at your AdminCP home.

Then have a look at this post for the solution to up these values.
Also have a look at this post at vB.com (but ignore the MySQL part as DownloadsII is only using the file system).

Hello. I used to use this mod on one of my older sites. I want to use it on a site where I will be uploading larger files. I've been to the links you've provided for larger files, but I'm interested in knowing how big a file can I make it?

Can I make it to where 1gb files can be uploaded?

That's a CMS error. It has nothing to do with DownloadsII.

Question - How do you customise the colours? I cannot seem to find anything in the css template. Does it take it styling from the default vb style?
Yes, it does (vB stylevars)

It's designed like that. If the external link is a real direct link, the download popup won't be in a new window (in Firefox though, I didn't test other browsers). If it isn't a real redirect link (just another site, not a link to a file), I guess you like it that your own site stays open.

That's how I thought about it. Any issues with it?

There is no integration with the new vB4 search yet. I'm looking into that, but it seems very complicated to me

This has been such an awesome mod for so long. Why is it not a built in feature for VBulletin?

Anyway, thanks again for this great mod. I have tagged it for later use.

I do not recommend using DownloadsII for such sizes. A simple PHP upload form isn't designed for that.
That would require FTP support or a Java uploader.

I want to integrate it with the asset manager, so it will depend from that vB4 feature.

Its really great if you can add
1. Views (How many times that specific download page has viewed)
2. Many links for a single download page. And rename them as needed
eg..
Download Part A
Download Part B

Download Guide Book
Download Guide Video
Download Catalog etc..

3. Disable comments for specific files. Like comment enable or disable tick box for each download when we add.
4. Comments in moderate cue if needed. So admin can approve comments.

What do you mean? You are looking into adding this in the future?

I have a question I'd like to ask you. May I PM you?

Yes, I want to replace the upload form with vB4's asset manager.

You may pm me if you don't want to post it here

Great news for me! Marked as installed and nominated. Thank you very much. Tonight will try to upgrade the test site from version 5.0.3. (on my own risk). I have done so many customization on top of this, so it will take a few days.

Top Release! I was not sure how long this would take to come out. Since many paid add-ons around are still not even out and this one is just as big as any of them. Nice to see you care about us.
