DownloadsII
Mod Version: 6.0.9, by RS_Jelle (Coder) RS_Jelle is offline
Developer Last Online: May 2016 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.0.4 Rating: (269 votes - 4.79 average) Installs: 1645
Released: 28 Dec 2009 Last Update: 02 Dec 2011 Downloads: 10891
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).

My workaround is to redirect the logged in member to the download page for this file where he can start a new download of the file:

find in downloads.php around line 485:


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

replace with:


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

@Jelle: Pleas add this to your repository, thanks
Thank you thank you very much.

This solved the issue

But a question:
The first line that I search for replace (around line 485) I view that appears in more lines, only need replace the line around 485?

Regards!

Can you provide a direct link to the 'Manage Files' please ?

I haven't had this problem before. I don't know if it's related to v4.1.10.


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

FIXED: Evidently the file was removed from 4.1.4. I uploaded a copy from 4.1.3.
I can't believe I'm the only one who experienced this unless there is a fix I haven't read.

Yes, but my question was another:
The replaced line, I view that, in the downloads.php file, appears in more lines, my question, is only necessary to replace the first?

Thanks and regards

Support for the new editor is integrated since 6.0.8, but there's no code like that on line 1370. Do you run any code modifications?
It should be wrapped in a version_compare() conditional to check your vBulletin version, so it can use the old or new editor code accordingly.

It looks like my downloads.php file is 6.0.4 even though plugin manager says 6.0.9 says
I had problems with the CMS widget and kept going back and forth between different version.
Also a lot of security token errors. Perhaps by installing a lower version something got changed.

one question.
i tried uninstalling this mod from my forum. Products and plugins are removed.
But i still have the option of 'Downloads' on left panel in Admin CP..!!!
How to remove it?

and the reason why i uninstalled it was because it started causing issues with usergroups!

Don't forget to delete all files from your forum folder.

Thanks Hippy for the reply. But updating the counters did not resolve my issue.

Does anyone know how to get the file size(s) to be recognized and updated without manually entering them ? I did not put in the file sizes when I first started using this mod and transferred one part of my downloads. It updated them itself (a few releases ago). I'm moving the rest of my downloads over and now it won't do it.

As far as I can tell there is no built-in way to have it re-calculate missing file sizes. I think the "import" script might calculate them during import, but I've not used that feature myself, so can't speak to that.
