Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files  

There's a vB4 version of this mod available: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=231427

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.

Because a lot of people keep on asking this:
This mod works with any version of vBulletin 3.7.x and 3.8.x!

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



Instructions & Support

You can find an installation manual in the zip package (Readme-Install.txt).

We try to answer most questions asked in this thread. Please don't send any pm's if we don't ask for them, as we said we try to give a high level of support in this thread. 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 6 screenshots of the front-end and back-end (AdminCP part) of the DownloadsII software. You can see the newest version in action at the Minatica.be Downloads (Dutch).

Changelog (version 5.1.2)

Jelle
  • Backported CSRF security fix from the vB 4 release
  • Added permission check for Update Counters
  • Fixed PHP warnings when running PHP 5.3
  • Removed the imagecreatefrombmp() function. It doesn't exist.
  • Added permission check for rating submissions
You can find all the changelogs of this and older versions here.

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

This is probably the second most asked question. Have a look at this post for the solution.

It doesn't work with GARS?!

If you also use the latest version of GARS, you will get the "Fields marked in RED must be filled in!" error when uploading a file. I provided a fix here on the GARS forums.

Addons

We are offering 3 addons for this mod at the moment (have a look at the bottom of this post for them). DownloadsII contains 5 hook locations for the vBulletin plugin systems, so you can add extra functionality without file edits.

Do you want to help expanding DownloadsII (if you are a coder)? Check out this post!

Notes
  • ecDownloads Buddy is NOT compatible with this version. If you are using the Buddy, you should UNINSTALL it before installing DownloadsII ver 5.x.x. The Buddy's features are now integrated into DownloadsII.
  • DownloadsII is a direct derivative work from Ron1n's ecDownloads.

Now you will need to find the templates for DownloadsII and add the line Jelle listed after each form.

Example (downloads_file Templates):

I added the above line right below this line:

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

so it looked like:

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

Example #2 (downloads_file Templates):
Same templates, but another form

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

Using the above examples you should be able to use the search template option and find everything you need.

Cheers!
well all my templates have that code into it like that, but i still get a security token error.

Hi guys,
How can I include all the pages of DownloadsII (Main page, categories, files) in the reports of vBseo Sitemap Generator? I think that there is a modification or a plugin, but my english is not so good and I could not understand in the pages that I saw and read, where webmasters asks the same question.

Thank you very much.

Hi,

As far as I know this is not possible, we found a way around it by using the addon for downloadsII that creates a new thread each time a file is added to the download section. Which in turn, made it part of the sitemap.

It is a workaround, a true solution.

When Jelle and his team finish up v6 they will let us know. The more you rag on them about it and complain the less they will feel like working on it.

Trying just saying "Thank you" for once.
"Take your time " is demanding?

any mention of a status bar? or maybe a 'loading' icon. just so users dont stare at a static page. ive got users uploading up to 50mb files and thats a long time to just wonder if the download is working.

thanks.

Hey there, first of all thaks for this great hack..
I am facing with "ERROR: File not found." problem..Since I moved my server to somewhere else,I get this problem when I try to download file..In addition, there is no problem with uploading the file and showing the file but dowloading..Because, I see the file in ftp..

For example,
http://www.mydomain.com/forum/downlo...d=444&act=down
This doesnt work but direct link to that file works..
http://www.mydomain.com/forum/downlo...507-Belge2.rar

Check the chmod of the ec_tmp folder inside the downloads folder. It should have 777 permissions (just as the downloads folder itself).

With the new version coming soon, I'm opening beta testing. If you want to test the new version, please send me a pm

You need a test forum (vB 3.7) for it as it's not meant for live sites yet (although it should be pretty stable). I'm mostly interested in how the upgrade from v5 to v6 goes. Running a copy of your normal downloads section on your test site would be great, so you can test with lots of files.

I'm a tad bit confused ... this works for v3.7? So the beta-testing you mention above is for the new version of this hack, not for the new vb version?
