Yes, I have my open / in-use 3.6.8 site, and my test 3.7 site. Yes, they are in the same database - unfortunately my host only allows on db with my plan.

If I wanted to attempt a clean install, can I modify includes/local_links_init.php and reinstall?

LDM uses tables in the vb database which (at least by default) are all prefixed local_links. You can patch the includes/local_links_init.php to use a different prefix for these tables but they will be in the same database.

The new version looks great Well you also be adding the ability to have partial descriptions shown on main category page by defined character limit where when you click on a more link it shows the full description or mabye when we click the name of the file it takes you to a seperate file download page with the full description as well as comments all shown.

Yes, just edit the line

eg to

and reupload the product xml file via the vb admincp.

You should also re-upload the (2.2.8) installer for your live forum, so that the two sets of database tables each know which version they are

Yes, it's there.

There's a new setting (*length_shortdesc*) which can be set globally (admin/settings) or per category (edit category/control settings) which specifies the length of entries' short descriptions. The short description is used if you choose the short (title+thumb+short description) linkbit for the category (again admin/settings or edit category/control settings). It behaves the way you indicate.

I realise that there's another linkbit described as Short (direct link, no thumb, short description) which does not work as described in the 2.2.9 aplha1.

I wanted to put the ldm tables in a separate table and had to make the following changes to the code for the system to install and run properly:

Thanks very much for this - I'll add the explanation to the wiki, and just check to see if we can make the process even easier.

Another bit of info (not sure if this is explained on the form) - items with negative display orders and items with "Hidden" content are only displayed to usergroups with *can_see_hidden* permission. Items with positive display orders are shown to all usergroups. Currently, all attributes are offered/displayed if created in all categories. In the final version of 2.2.9, it will be possible to show/hide attribute groups on a per-category basis, so that (e.g.) attributes relevant to mp3s are only requested and displayed in the relevant categories.
i am still unable too see the attributes in linkbit. (using standard linkbit)
could you please post a screenshot for this?

Perhaps you can just check (LDM/admin/permissions) that you have *can_view_entities* permission.

Do yo mind if I take a look at your site - I'd like to see for myself what's going wrong (admin details )

Attached is a screen shot of the linkbit with some extras - the alpha 1 code doesn't include images as extras but you will get the general idea

sure, will PM admin details right now.

thanks for screenshot. looks very nice (would be much better if it was possible to set a default icon or button for each attribute in admin panel)

Will the keywords of LDM be merged with vb 3,7 its tags? As they are different names, but other than that they are exactly the same.

I've been wondering about that. I'm not sure which is the better approach.

This is still rather new, so it's quite possible that there are bugs. Have you registered at trapvid.com and set up an account with the right ip address?

It's important to enter the urls in the correct format. Try this veoh file.

http://www.veoh.com/videos/v1717492rr86NdWC

Edit the entry as an admin (with *can_view_hidden* LDM permission) and take a look down the bottom of the page at the attributes section. Check that the Trapvid entity contains something that looks sensible (this is automatically created using the response from trapvid).

If none of that works, am happy to take a look.
