I just installed it on my vB 4.1.0 testsite and it works fine

Uploaded - Installed product XML - Set usergroup permissions (you need to set this per usergroup that can auto-post threads!!) - Enable it in the settings - Set a default forum
Then I created a file and the thread was auto-created as expected.

That permission stands all alone. It's right at the bottom of my usergroup permissions.

DownloadsII Create Thread Permissions
Can Create Threads on Upload? Set to "Yes", to allow threads to be created when a file is added to DownloadsII.

Hippy,

Mine isn't at the very bottom either it is above "Forum Viewing Permissions". I didn't see it either and I looked at every section and finally found it. Of course mine was set to "No" lol. Will try it out.

Thanks Mindz for pointing that out.

when you edit existing file that doesn't have discussion thread created/associated with the add-on.. you get msg..

vBulletin Message
Invalid Forum specified. If you followed a valid link, please notify the administrator


I have it set so any new files created no matter what category thread created is in only 1 forum.

Sounds like you don't have permissions set for each usergroup.

I upgraded, but I think I must has uninstalled the old version. Now if I edit a download, it creates a new thread, on top of the old one. Is there a way to stop this?
