I downloaded this and installed it because I used it before, but things I didn't expect.

I do NOT want files stored offsite and this mod seems to promote sites that are havens for pirated script, to be quite honest.

I also can not appreciate that when you click on add files that nearly that entire page is in Italian. How do you convert that whole page to English? Fishing through the phrases is a ton of work.

I really want to remove almost all of the first part on "Add File" so that all that shows is the file upload section. I can decide more if I can see the attachments completely in english.

Please see attachments. I would like to remove all this stuff as I do not need it.

Confirmed working for 4.1.4

A request for Jelle. Would it be possible to have the created threads and posts show up directly under the download files? More or less the same was as the article comments show up in the CMS?

I disagree. I have a need from time to time to turn on HTML comments to find a template issue. Both vBulletin and every other add-on I have behaves nicely with the HTML Comments turned on, except downloadsii. I consider this a bug.

For those who would like to fix it, here's a simple fix.

Find the plugin named "DownloadsII: Create Thread on Add".

Partway down, you will see some code that uses vbulletin templates to build the message that will be posted. Like this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

This takes the raw templates (including the html comments if you have the debugging turned on) to use for the message. Edit the above code like this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

All I did was add a line after the template was evaluated to strip all HTML comments from what was rendered, once for the message and once for the title. These 2 SMALL edits are all that are needed to make this plugin play nice with the html comments debugging set to on.

Ok, I think I have a weird bug to report for this modification. Recently, I've had two files from DownloadsII have their comments threads (created by this modification) "updated" with the usual "[File Name] has been updated!" message. Here's the thing: the posts are not by the owner of the thread, they are by staff members on my site (who have limited admin privs, if that helps). They aren't modifying the files or their descriptions though, all they do is log in and these posts are created automatically. You can see an example of this here: .

I'm really not sure what to make of these posts, as they started happening randomly and nothing I do seems to stop them from happening.

I dont use downloads11 anymore, and removed it sometime ago. When trying to uninstall this product i am getting all kinds of Mysql errors and the product wont uninstall. Can someone give me the code to use, minus the bits that are obviously not there since the main downloads11 has already deleted tables used.
If it aint broke -------------------- Don't fix it!!
