I added the extra to auto create a thread when I enter a new thread, but I can't get it to work. I'm a bit slow ;-). Could you explain it with more details. When I add a link what do I do to make a thread?

Thanks AndrewD

PS I did created an special forum just for the new entries and when I created the link I select that forum, but nothing happen.

I just realised that the plugin is designed to work with version 2.2.8, and will not work correctly with 2.2.7 unless you make a small edit to the release code. I'm not sure which version you are running.

If you are using 2.2.7, edit the file local_links.php, which is in your main forums directory.

find (at line 2194)

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

and move these two line up, so that they are just before line 2124

ok. iīv got another question. i have im my ldm categories like "show all" , "artist" ....

The "show all" categorie should be free to everyone. The other categories should only be shown to a special usergroup. When i put the switch "can_acces.." only to those usergroup, others will be still able to take a look at these categorie. is there a possibility to hide unauthorized categories?

You need to use the forums based permissions system in LDM.

Associate the restricted category with a VB forum with the desired access permissions, and make sure you don't give other users 'can_see_protected_links_on_portal' permission.

See http://www.eirma.org/wikis/index.php...Access_Control

You can test things as follows:

#1 install autocreate plugin
#2 go to vb/admin/options/Cookies and HTTP Header Options and set Remove Redirection Message Pages to No, so that you can see what's going on.
#3 go to your LDM admin/settings page and make sure that it's active. Other settings are not that important. Turn off moderation for the time being.
#4 create a test LDM category and give it an associated forum which is a) a real forum (not a category or link) and b) open for posting new threads.
#5 create an entry in that category. As you are doing so, check that its associated forum is the one you've just defined in #4

You should get an 'accepted' message which tells you that the entry has also been posted in the forum.

Once you know that it's working correctly, return the VB and LDM settings as you want them.

hi Andrew
is it possible to embed pdf files in a popup page(with fix size), instead of downloading them?

thanks

It worked perfectly, :-)

Two more questions:
1. Associating the category to the forum, would that have any effect in the allowance? Or it is just view permission?
2. I have 6 main categories, can I still edit those categories to associate with a forum or do I have to make a new category?

Associating categories and entries with forums is used mainly to pick up viewing permissions and handle the autothread creation.

You can always edit a category and reassociate it with a new forum. If you tick the checkbox 'also update entries' then the entries will also use the forum for their permissions. However, existing entries will not trigger the autocreate mechanism - that only happens with new entries.

Having a permissions issue.

I'd like to have all administrators able to alter categories but at the moment only the admin who created the category is allowed to alter it.

How can I change this?

This should be the *can_edit_category* permission. Is it not working correctly?

i have an other problem, the last i hope!!

a lot of users upload the files on esternal servers (like rapidshare, yousendit...) so when they add a link to their song there is something like: http://www.site.com/vaskvjasnvkjanv345/

now, when they add this link as an URL, LDM will show anything..because it doesn't recognise the filetype!

is there a way to get rid of this problem?

thanks!

Do you mean that you want LDM to show a filetype icon? Normally, this is determined automatically. I suppose one could add an option for the user to select manually, but there could be a security problem if someone tried to fool users. I suppose that the sensible approach would be to allow a manual filetype selection only if the entry has not filetype?
