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).

they're in your php.ini
You most likely not have access to the file if you're on a shared host, you can attempt to work around it by doing the settings in the .htaccess file
If you're on a dedicated host or virtual private server you should have access to the php.ini and make the changes directly.
Do some searching on the WWW and on this thread to see how to make the changes...google is your friend

here are my current settings for those 2.

post_max_size
Local Value:8M
Master Value:8M

upload_max_filesize
Local Value:10M
Master Value:10M

do i just need to change the upload_max_filesize to 30? and what does that give me 30mb?

First: Thank you for this mod!

Now a question! Is it possible to not allow the upload of files to Parent Categories?
So that a Parent Category is only a category but no repository?

Yes (err maybe not)

hmm I say that, and now I'm not finding the settings I was thinking were there. Going to have to delve a bit more into this.

You need to add other extensions,

ACP >> Downloads II >> Extensions >> then add the file type that you want to allow for e.g rar zip doc etc....
