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!

And as mentioned earlier wouldn't mind at all if these were Pro features, right now planning on upgrading soon
I'm hoping to get a profile tab done for an upcoming version. It should definitely be done

After you download the files, you should see a folder called integration. Open that and install the xml file in the folder via your AdminCP. You should then have the actions available in vBCreditsII.

Upload to your forum root and then just go to http://www.YOURSITE.com/forum/checkdir.php

That should show you the path to your forum.

NOTE: On some Unix variants, getcwd() (the function used in checkdir.php) will return FALSE if any one of the parent directories does not have the readable or search mode set, even if the current directory does.

I hope this helps. If that file fails, you could contact your hosting company and ask them for the path. They most likely will be able to provide it for you.

Any update on when this will get fixed? It is really annoying. It leaves the comments in a mess. And I can not even edit it. It looks even worst after editing.

Thank you.

And when I add a description, it displays this after I save it:

AlienWare Icon Pack With Installer, Blue 64bit systems<br>

With all these...amp, etc at the back. Does not matter if I edit it.

This will basically allow you to track the time it will take until your files will be uploaded with a progress bar. This is handy for larger files especially.

I seem to have left it out. I'll update the files now and you should have the folder.

It should be fixed in the version I have just released. Could you upgrade to that and try it. If that fails, could you PM me admin access to your site.
