It does not get tabulated by month, but if you go to ldm/admin/hits you can do an analysis for any range of dates for which you still have information in your downloads table.

THanks. That does help. However, I logged in / clicked administer / then clicked settings / ...

But can't find that prune_downloadtable.

I'm on version 2.1.0

Is this an option I can set with a Mysql query maybe? Or other solution(s)?

Thanks much.

Goodness, version 2.1.0.

You're in luck - that part of the code has not changed very much in two years Take a copy of the file include/local_links_include.php. Edit, and go to line 1078, which reads:


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

Change to:


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

where XXX is the number of days you want to retain in the table, e.g. 30.

AndrewD, thank you for the 2.2.8 version is working great, tagcluod, mirror site. Excellent work and the upgrade was simple as before..

One small question, I'm not sure if I'm missing this, but how do I search downloads by username? I know I can go the "hits" and then search page by page until I found the username, but iss there any other way? your mod has so many options that I get lost.

Maybe I'm missing the question - apologies if so.

You go to ldm/admin/hits. Then you use the pull down menus to select the dates of interest and 'username'. That produces aggregated information sorted by username. You then click on one of the usernames and you get a full tabulation of that user's activity.

I just discovered that the 2.2.8 code includes a debug statement in the javascript which I forgot to remove. As a result, when you use these pull down menus you'll get a couple of annoying alert boxes pop up. You can dismiss those - they don't matter. Will eb tidied up in the final release.

It would be nice to do this, but I'm not sure that I know how to so it reliably.

Hmm... hello, finally installed the filmstrip, it works really good... but i was wondering if it's possible to move it below the linkbit and if there is a template i can edit to add some css style to it?
Thanks Andrew!

Those who take a little time to install and learn more about LDM can't deny is the best addon for vbulletin!

*edit*
Andrew, I think I may have fixed it, just by copy/pasting...can you check to see if it looks how it should look? If so, disregard the indented text below. I do have a 2nd challenge at the bottom of the post though.

Thanks for your time and devotion to this hack, I absolutely love it, it is truly one of the best mods for vbulletin!

I don't recall modifying any phrases. I did install this a while back, but I uninstalled it prior to installing the updated version.

In my phrase manager, when I do a search, I have 2 versions of ll_recent.

One is the English translation, the other is the Standard translation. Copy paste from the phrase manager after the search, it isn't formatted well, sorry.

ll_recent English (US) Translation

During the last {1} days:<br />&middot; {2} new entries [<span class="smallfont"><a href="{4}.php?catid=-8">what's new</a></span>]<br />&middot; {3} hits [<span class="smallfont"><a href="{4}.php?catid=-7">what's hot</a></span>]


ll_recent Standard Phrase

{2} new entries {3}since {1}

Is the wrong one being used? How do I get rid of it, or fix the problem?

Any time I try to edit the "standard phrase" one, it goes to the English phrase after clicking "edit". That is...

During the last {1} days:<br />&middot; {2} new entries [<span class="smallfont"><a href="{4}.php?catid=-8">what's new</a></span>]<br />&middot; {3} hits [<span class="smallfont"><a href="{4}.php?catid=-7">what's hot</a></span>]

...appears in the text box for both the English and Standard phrases when I try to edit either.
_______________________________________________

Also, a bug or another problem that I've found...

The system considers this url: http://classics.mit.edu/Browse/index.html to be an offsite download.

This is the result of clicking that link from the system, when off site downloads are turned off:

http://www.onlinedebate.net/forums/l...&id=80&catid=1

Internal Server Error (500)

This is the result of clicking that link from the system, when off site downloads are turned on:

http://www.onlinedebate.net/forums/l...&id=80&catid=1

Sorry, off-site downloads have been disabled.



Not sure why the internal server error is occurring.

This is weird. Are you by any chance using the internal LDM mod_rewrite facility? Looking at the code, I can only assume that the url is getting patched to something else.

Glad to hear this is close to what you wanted.

Currently, any changes have to be made by editing the plugin itself, which may seem a bit hairy.

The placement is quite easy. Go to vb/admin/products and plugins/plugin manager. and look for the Links and Downloads Manager - Filmstrip plugin that is attached to the ldm_maindisplay_end hook. Edit this plugin. Find the line that reads:


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

You can move the feature around the page by changing 'postfeat'.

Going from the top of the page down, these are your options:

'precat'
'postcat'
'prefeat'
'postfeat'
'prelink'
'postlink'
'prestats'
'poststats'

I imagine you want 'postlink'.

The lines which build the table for the filmstrip are immediately below this line in the code - the html is embedded into the plugin. You can edit the css there. Be careful - this is similar but not identical to a template, and you need to keep the syntax valid.

Oh, it is hairy!

Well, it's awesome, it was indeed the 'postlink' part, I don't know how this works, but is it possible to add a selectable menu in the filmstrip setting to select where we want to show it? Oh, and this kind of information is added to your wiki? It is quite useful.

Maybe for 2.2.9 or 2.3

Thanks
