I did a few quick tests.
I was wondering if I upload a image should it resize to a thumbnail?
the thumbnails for the board are set to 100x90
image attached to show the issue.

also the button ? Do I need to enable it somewheres or I do I need to create my own

thanks again
All images automatically create a thumbnail of 100x100 As for the button, which button are you talking about?

Upload Progress bar is already planned and should be implemented soon enough. I am testing the import script at the moment. You could definitely try it on a test board first and see if that works for you. The reason it is in beta is because I haven't been able to test it as much as I would have liked.

I just can't get this to work for me. I'm new like I said on the other thread. I cam ehere to see if I maybe had the wrong version.

I upload it all, I do take care to make sure the files go from the folder to their corresponding files on the server. I use core ftp.

I check my site and everything is fine.

I then go to manage plug isn and import the xml and my site turns to just a list of files.

I'm interested in three of your pro prodicts but not if I can't get them to work with 4.0.8.

What could be causing this?

As soon as I uninstall the xml through manage products my site goes back to normal.

I'm trying to get this site built as soon as I can and I don't want to attempt installing anything else until the download system is in, that way I know what mod is causing the issue. I have no theme as yet and likely won't take one, except for a bit of recolouring.

Can you help with this so that I can let my moderators test the lite one, please?

You can turn that on/off per usergroup by selecting/unselecting them from the global module permissions. Thumbnails are generated for each image. If you right click on the thumbnail in a download and copy the url to it you will see this.

Updated the zip:

No version change at this time, just some minor bug fixed.

- Module configuration warning should only should up in vbdownloads.php now.
- Fixed a CSS bug
- Fixed a bug in vBShout Integration that caused it to link to the wrong file.

To upgrade just reupload all the files and reimport the product file setting overwrite to yes.

- David

PS: For your patience, a preview of the next version! http://www.screencast-o-matic.com/watch/c66ZDx6VH

Redownload the files and try the installer again. Should work for you this time.

Ok, thanks dragon I edit 100.php and replace all varchar(1000) for varchar(250) and works for me.

Thanks....

Suggestion:

One could add a field to place who is the author of this file? Which is not automatic.

and

add sub-categorie

Excellent Work!!!!!
