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!

This does not guarantee the mod is error free on PHP 5.4, but it will take care of the reported errors. Thank you all for your reports

Using the lite version but I don't have any options in the admin cp? The only options I have are under Vbulletin Options, and usergroups but there are no options to add categories etc.

On the download page I don't have an option to upload a file.

You need to add yourself to Super Administrator in includes/config.php or use your Super Administrator account to grant your normal admin account "Can Administer vBDownloads".

You then need to edit usergroup permissions in each separate category.
