vB Version: 4.0.4 Rating: (269 votes - 4.79 average) Installs: 1647
Released: 28 Dec 2009 Last Update: 02 Dec 2011 Downloads: 10910
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files  

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).

Guys, Im getting a phrase error. I uninstalled because I simply dont use it and it left some language phrases in the database. I tried to remove it with phpmyadmin but ended up screwing up the entire language phrase table. (thank god for the tool.php). Anyway here's the error, can one of you explain how to remove it correctly.

Thanks...

Is anyone able to tell me where/how I can increase the length of the filename field (ie number of characters in the filename field)?

Within the downloads2_file_addit template, I have changed the 'maxlength to 100 as below:

<div class="blockrow">
<label for="title">{vb:rawphrase dl2_file_name}:</label>
<div><input type="text" class="primary textbox" name="title" id="title" value="{vb:raw newfile.title}" maxlength="100" tabindex="1" /></div>


But this doesn't seem to have made any difference...help please?

Really appreciated!

Ian

Sounds like an installation error in that the phrase group wasn't installed correctly. Try re-installing.

Downloads can be limited by usergroup, so have a group that you control access to with permissions to download. Also don't store the downloads in your web directory so that people can't link directly to the download if they guess the name.

No, why would you want to waste your bandwidth for that when there are plenty of free image hosting sites on the web.

The category id is already in the url, why do you need the name as well? This would require a fairly hefty code rewrite to achieve and would remove the ability to have categories with the same name. For example if you have two categories each with a subcategory of the same name you would no longer be able to do it.

Is there anyway when a category image is being used (like in subs) that the category name (in text) will be hidden? It looks weird that both the clickable image and text is being shown.

Question

Is there any chance to get the "ratings" of each uploaded file getting shown at the downloads main site! I meant that anybody can see ratings for each file (i. e. near date/Comments/downloads)?

Here is an example (click on thumb for full view!)
