vBDownloads: What is it?

DragonByte Technologies is proud to present vBDownloads v1.0, the most professional, innovative and feature-rich downloads mod to date.

vBDownloads aims to help you manage your forum's downloads in a fast and efficient way, presenting you with all the information you and your users need.

Why vBDownloads?
Whilst looking for a new product idea, we felt that there was a need for a fully-supported downloads database in vBulletin. vBDownloads is the result of this. vBDownloads contains many interesting features such as multi-file downloads, password-protected downloads and many more exciting and innovative features!

Excellent mod! This has enabled me to switch from DownloadsII seamlessly!

One question, though....I have attempted to alter the .htaccess file to increase the size of downloads allowed. Is this the proper way to go about this, or is there another way I should go?

if you have access to your php.ini file, def change it there vs trying to do the htaccess way. But either is acceptable.

Could you perhaps give us any examples? It's not really possible for us to fix problems without knowing what they are =(

Question

That script sounds interesting. A question though. Is it possible to manually add downloads where the source is not an uploaded file but a file that is linked from some other webspace ?

Cheers

Wolf

Hello,

First thanks for your plugin!

I have a few questions!
Is vbSEO compatible with vbDownloads?

On your demo Web site, the categories are in two rows?
Is it possible to have one category by line?

Are the listing look/theme easily customizable?
For example, is it possible to have a listing more compact such as http://www.minatica.be/downloads/cat/2-Audiovisueel ?

We haven't had any users complain about incompatibilities with vBSEO

With edits to a template I believe it is possible to have categories show on by one.

The dbtech_downloads.css file contains all the css used within vBDownloads. Editing that should allow you to achieve the desired results.

Greetings coders at DB-Tech

Curious if any headway was made on the comments section and the profile tab?

Specifically looking for management of the comments section including mass-delete. Also would be nice if could block or ban a spammer via IP (since allowing unregistered comments)

And the profile tab a listing of all files uploaded by a user.

We are currently in the process of releasing version 1.3.0. It should be available soon. We have also noted some of your suggestions and may add them in future versions.

I have bought quite a few products from you BUT the amount of footer links you add is ridiculous.

I bought 1 mod, the * InfoPanels Pro and you added 2 footer links for just one modification so I had to get rid of that.

If every mod I bought or installed had this the footer would go on forever.

Why, when we buy pro do you insist on filling our forums with your links.

As a buyer of your modifications (which are great), this really puts me off buying anything else.

I have bought info panels from you but I have had to disable it because you have added 2 footer links,

1 for the xstats then 1 for the infopanel.

I cannot speak for other Dragonbyte-Tech mods except for the ones I have developed. In vBDownloads case, the only branding on the mod is a link in the footer on vBDownload pages i.e pages within the vbdownloads.php file. As far as I know, the only mods that add global footer links are the ones that are utilised throughout the forum and have no one specific location (vBOptimise for example). I hope this helps you understand the reasoning behind the location of our branding. I will have Iain follow up on this with a more official response.
