DownloadsII

DownloadsII is a download database that integrates into vBulletin. It allows you to upload files, add images to them, create categories, link to external files - and more. It is very flexible and has many options.

It's also coded 100% XHTML 1.0 Transitional valid, just like vBulletin itself.



Instructions & Support

Requires vBulletin 4.0.4 or higher. Not fully compatible with lower vB 4 versions.
It works fine with both the new editor in vB 4.1.4 or higher and the old one in previous vB versions.

Read the instructions in the next two posts before installing/upgrading this mod!

You can find an installation/upgrade manual in the zip package (Readme.txt).

I try to answer most questions asked in this thread. Please don't send any pm's if I don't ask for them. Don't forget to click the install link, so you will receive important update notifications.

Screenshots & Live demo

At the bottom of this post, you can find some screenshots of the front-end and back-end (AdminCP part) of the DownloadsII software.

You can find a live demo on my own site: Minatica.be Downloads (Dutch).
Though keep in mind that we are running a restyled and modified version of it.

Changelog (version 6.0.9)

Jelle
  • Added support for vB 4.1.8 bit processing with 'each' construct (backwards compatible)
  • Fixed comma listing for vB 4.1.8 (using "old" method)
Older changelogs are included in the zip package.

Help!!! I can't upload large files??

This is probably the most asked question. It's mostly caused by some default PHP settings: check "PHP Max Post Size" and "PHP Maximum Upload Size" at your AdminCP home.

Then have a look at this post for the solution to up these values.
Also have a look at this post at vB.com (but ignore the MySQL part as DownloadsII is only using the file system).

I uninstalled this mod and am now receiving many SQL errors. The files are still left over on my server and that is probably why the errors are occuring. I'm still relatively new to mods so is it safe to remove these files manually?

forums/downloads.php
forums/admincp/downloads2.php
forums/includes/class_downloads2.php
forums/includes/md5_sums_downloads2.php

forums/includes/xml/bitfield_downloads2.xml
forums/includes/xml/cpnav_downloads2.xml
forums/includes/xml/cssrollup_downloads2.xml
forums/includes/xml/hooks_downloads2.xml

This is the error I get:

Permissions to unregistered users

First of all, I than you for creating a very nice option to upload and Download, a job well done.

I am just a bit concerned that possibly because I am not yet used to the program and i might be missing something. It seem to me that my webpage I can select who can see what directories or post etc, in my forum, I have no such control over the Download directory and even guests can see it and upload and download. How do I stop this unwanted feature for I have not come across a permission set up to control this. The only way I was bale to stop this is to set the download page as off line for maintenance. Is this the only way to do this?

Hello everyone, I have installed this product successfully created the categories, set extensions, started to upload the files to test and everything was successful.
As soon as I try to download (I am logged in as admin, but also as a normal user) can not do the download of the file, it returns a 500 error
I tried to find a solution but I could not figure out what to do, I kindly ask you gurus tell me where and what to do, thanks in advance and sorry for my english..

This is a error:
500 - Internal Server Error
This is a temporary server error.
Please try to reload the webpage later.
If you are the webmaster of this site please log in to Cpanel and check the Error Logs. You will find the exact reason for this error there.

Common reasons for this error are:

Incorrect file/directory permissions: Above 755. In order files to be processed by the webserver, their permissions have to be equal or below 755. You can update file permissions with a FTP client or through cPanel's File Manager.
Incorrect Apache directives inside .htaccess file. Make sure you have not specified unsupported directives inside the local .htaccess file. Such include PHP settings and Apache module settings.


Unfortunately I am not a programmer so I ask politely if there is a solution by setting the file. Htaccess or php.ini you can post the code, thanks

The downloads folder had permissions to 755 and gave me the same error and I changed to 744, but does not change

I changed the permissions to the folder 644 and does not give me more than the 500 error but I get the "download list does not exist" and if I try to download a file now I get the error "Error: File not found" .. ..?
I changed the settings on the path, so to speak where the default is. / Downloads to "public_html / forum / downloads", but nothing changes ... I get an error "Warning, the download list does not exist" just above the box to download the file?
Solutions?

I solved part .... Basically I put the downloads folder permissions to 777, and via the Import menu I gave the absolute path of the folder where the files were already and I've imported again (almost made ​​me duplicates) only this time these files I imported them to download, but if I import files from the frontend (I saw them putting rename an id in front of the file name) when I go to download it gives me the error 500?
I believe that the 500 error is generated by an error in the address file, since it is renamed when it is imported like 123456-myfilename.pdf .... It will be a bug?

This mod is working, but the menu/navbar items superimpose over the main forum navbar.

Any suggested fix?

Thanks,

Question Order of Downloads within a Category

Great Add-on.

The Default Sort Field gives me options such as Date Added, Rating, etc. How can I MANUALLY change the order not based on any of the default fields? I need the file downloads in an order different from what any of the default fields can give me.

Thanks guys

You'd need to change the code both php and html to allow you to do that.

Thanks. This makes it impossible for me. It would make a neat feature if it's included as one of the options.

Thanks,
It seems that when the Downloads Tab is activated, it also activates the Forum Tab and navbar menu.

it will appear in the actual description as just:

However, when the downloads post addon grabs the description and makes a thread it will see the video tags and correctly embed the video as intended.

Which makes me think Downloads II is missing something
Bumping this old post up. When using video tags, youtube videos won't be embedded into the downloads box. I've also noticed that the insert image prompt is missing the From Computer tab, along with the "Retrieve remote file and reference locally" checkbox item on the From URl tab. Please see attached pictures.
