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!

Thanks....

Suggestion:

One could add a field to place who is the author of this file? Which is not automatic.
You mean set the author yourself and not have it set to whoever is uploading? I suppose I could look into adding something like that. I'll consider it!

Thanks!!!!!!!

The thing is I upload books, plays theater and other things where I'd like to have a field for the "title" and one for the "authors" beyond who makes the UPLOAD.

Ahh, I am planning on adding a feature that will allow you to create your own input items in a future version. That will do what you are looking for.

DownloadsII importer should be fine to use now

To upgrade -> Just reupload the files.

To import -> Go to your AdminCP and then to Import Utility under the Downloads category.

Upload the following file and run it. That should give you an idea of what your path will look like. Also, make sure the folder you are referencing actually exists.

OK, thank you. Got that now.

I set up some categories with permissions, but don't have a downloads tab in my navbar though.

EDIT: Sorry missed post #20 here. Got it working now. And thanks for another fantastic mod. Looking at the pro version now.
