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!

"Integration
vBCreditsII
- Pay to Download
- Pay to Upload"

Is it possible to give the file's uploader the credits spent downloading it?
So in effect you can 'sell' your uploaded items to other users.

That'd be really useful!

It is not possible at the moment but definitely something we can consider for the future

I've followed the installation instructions and my admin cp shows this plugin as installed and active. Based on your screenshots I was expecting to see a button in the navbar like I had for DownloadsII but I see neither any errors nor any button or link for accessing the plugin's functionality. Any suggestions for troubleshooting this further?

Thanks.

You will need to configure each of the modules in the Manage Modules section for Downloads. The navbar button is controlled by the global module. I hope this helps

Hi, I just installed this mod on my 4.x board after upgrading from 3.8 (using DownloadsII) but when I go to the "Import Utility" nothing shows up. Did I do something wrong or miss something? I tried using it with both the DownloadsII plugin enabled AND disabled and it didn't change anything.

thanks in advance.

EDIT: Nevermind. I just had to upgrade DownloadsII to the vb 4.x version and then it found it!

New issues:

I created an entry with two files and description. When browsing, no description was available.
Clicked edit, the edit window had no description in editor. So my description was lost?
Removed one file, and clicked upload (which should be "save" i think), it created a new entry instead of editing the current one.

This is a new and default installation of 4.1.3.

edit: i submitted the entry under misc category I created. I can see all categories in downloads homepage but no files are shown in the box below the categories :S

Are you sure you are using the latest version? These sound like issues that were fixed recently. I'll have a look at the files posted here.
