did you try the option in Administration--Permissions ? (you can also set category specific options on this)
must_rate_download
Usergroups that must provide a comment/rating before being allowed to visit/download an entry.

Edit the links_linkbit template.

Find the line (close to the top)

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

Replace by

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

That should do the job.

Downloads are files with filetypes that appear in the vb mimetypes table. I checked the code - currently, the allowances only apply for such files - the logic being that other file types are transferred using broswer redirects rather than LDM managed transfers. I realise, now you point it out, that a redirect from your own server is still consuming bandwidth, so there's a logic in applying the allowances. I'll work out the cleanest way to do this for RC version of 2.2.8.

Thanks for the translation - that's excellent (I think!! - can't read it to be sure).

Question

Andrew,

Could you please answer this:

Many thanks for your support.

And this:

To do this for LDM, I need to define what the cat id variables of LDM are.

I tried this, but this didn't work:

Andrew, could you please inform me of the cat id variables?

Just to clarify: I want to find the category id variables to have the right tab be highlighted when a member is in a certain category of LDM.

Yes, same here. It still puzzles me why LDM is not a Premium mod.

I revived the request here

maybe it's only a suggestion for future releases: but is it possible to see the links to new entries and new ratings/comments in the /search.php?do=getnew page?

thanks for all you are doing for as with this mod


EDIT: i'd like to open a thread where we can give links to our LDM pages, and have suggestion about how incorporating it with our forum!!is it possibile? and where?

I'm sorry, I missed your question the first time round.

The syntax for the search urls is as follows:

.../local_links_search.php?action=show

with some or all of these parameters:

required

&search=searchstring
&desc=0/1 [search descriptions]
&keys=0/1 [search keywords]
&searchdate=0/-1/N [any date/since last visit/last N days]

optional

&filetype=typelist [filetypes, comma separated]

&catlist=n1,n2,n3[list of category ids to search]

&childcats=1 [also search child categories of those selected]

&beforeafter=1/-1 and newer/and older

&sort=N/n/h/30/6/1/D/d/R/r/U/u [Title (ascending)/Title (descending)/Hits (overall)/Hits (30 days)/Hits (7 days)/Hits (24 hours)/Date created (ascending)/Date created (descending)/Rating (ascending)/Rating (descending)/Submitter (ascending)/Submitter (descending)]

&user=username
&userid=userid

There are some other switches too, but that's probably all you need.

Give me a couple of days to look at this - I've not see this hack before.

I'd not tried to integrate LDM with VB's search, which is a quite fearful bit of code. Maybe I'll take another look.

I'm very happy for you to create an account on the wiki (http://www.eirma.org/wikis) and add a link to your site /remarks about integration there

Install the attached plugin (vb/admincp/plugins and products/download and upload plugins)

It will integrate external urls and local entries that do not have recognised mimetypes into the "External Links Framed" hack.
