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!

David or Fillip:

I currently have a huge amount of files on our site, hobby-machinist.com using Downloads II by Jelle. But since there are no updated features, I want to convert to your system.


My question is this: Can I convert a HUGE library (815 files) easily from DownloadsII to your system or does it have to be done ONE AT A TIME (which will take forever).

I will gladly buy the pro version if needed.

EDIT: I just tried to use the LITE version to do the conversion from DownloadsII to your system, and got this error:

"No Users Matched Your Query"

What did I do wrong?

Thanks very much in advance!

Nelson

Can anyone else help me on this? I can't get past step 2 of importing from Downloads II.

Thanks in advance.

As this has been cross-posted to our forums, it's being handled there. When a patch is created it will be uploaded to vBulletin.org as well

The issue seems to be with users who own files or downloads in Downloads II but have since been removed from vBulletin.

Workaround code is currently in testing on Nelson's site.

The above problem has been solved with an updated plugin we are using. However, we currently experienced an issue that not all of the old Downloads II downloads are being imported into the Vbdownloads system. Only 409 out of 1650 files were imported.

They are currently working on this, and we will let you know when it has been solved.

EDIT: Just discovered installing this mod will also cause "Operation Timed Out" errors on other mods. I have uninstalled it. It needs work.

vBDownloads v2.1.0 Patch Level 1
Change: The Downloads II importer will now print output on the page when importing downloads & files.
Fix: The Downloads II importer will now more reliably import downloads from users that no longer exist
Fix: The Downloads II importer will now deal with link-only downloads better
Fix: The Downloads II importer will no longer print PHP warning messages if the physical source file has been deleted
Fix: Increased reliability of uploads for users who are not logged in with "Remember Me" and upload large files or leave the page for extended periods of time
Fix: Users who have been deleted / imported downloads from missing users should no longer see their downloads disappear from the various areas of vBDownloads

This might be a common issue, so I apologize. But, I am getting the following error in the settings, and the mod does not work.

Under path to downloads I get the following. I have a directory setup, but this is showing.
"You did not enter a valid value for this setting."

We currently have no plans to integrate APTL into this mod but that could change in the future

If you're using vB 4.2 you can use the Navigation Manager
