Developer Last Online: May 2016 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (208 votes - 4.80 average) Installs: 2109
Released: 02 Jul 2006 Last Update: 25 Apr 2010 Downloads: 16078
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files  

There's a vB4 version of this mod available: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=231427

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.

Because a lot of people keep on asking this:
This mod works with any version of vBulletin 3.7.x and 3.8.x!

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



Instructions & Support

You can find an installation manual in the zip package (Readme-Install.txt).

We try to answer most questions asked in this thread. Please don't send any pm's if we don't ask for them, as we said we try to give a high level of support in this thread. 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 6 screenshots of the front-end and back-end (AdminCP part) of the DownloadsII software. You can see the newest version in action at the Minatica.be Downloads (Dutch).

Changelog (version 5.1.2)

Jelle
  • Backported CSRF security fix from the vB 4 release
  • Added permission check for Update Counters
  • Fixed PHP warnings when running PHP 5.3
  • Removed the imagecreatefrombmp() function. It doesn't exist.
  • Added permission check for rating submissions
You can find all the changelogs of this and older versions here.

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

This is probably the second most asked question. Have a look at this post for the solution.

It doesn't work with GARS?!

If you also use the latest version of GARS, you will get the "Fields marked in RED must be filled in!" error when uploading a file. I provided a fix here on the GARS forums.

Addons

We are offering 3 addons for this mod at the moment (have a look at the bottom of this post for them). DownloadsII contains 5 hook locations for the vBulletin plugin systems, so you can add extra functionality without file edits.

Do you want to help expanding DownloadsII (if you are a coder)? Check out this post!

Notes
  • ecDownloads Buddy is NOT compatible with this version. If you are using the Buddy, you should UNINSTALL it before installing DownloadsII ver 5.x.x. The Buddy's features are now integrated into DownloadsII.
  • DownloadsII is a direct derivative work from Ron1n's ecDownloads.

At this moment, only the downloads log is pruned. Statistics (which are not very great, I know) are meant to stay, although you can prune (or even empty) the dl_stats table yourself using phpMyAdmin.

But indeed, good idea to add a similar option for the stats log

That's not possible at the moment, but this is on our todo list. So only one file (and unlimited images) per item at this moment.

Don't give me any of such ideas, as I don't have a student job for this summer yet
If it's a reasonable price, I wouldn't mind paying for it.

I got a few questions for v6, hope you don't mind me asking.

1. Will there be options to allow comment approval on downloads?
2. Will there be a dead link report button?
3. Will there be comment reporting?

Ment the downloads log

I had it set to 5 days and I still had a year of downloads in the log.

I pruned it manually, it was taking up some space. Any reason why it wouldn't clear when the hourly cron job runs?

Hello.
I have installed DownloadsII 5.1.0.
I view now that, my forum, in downloads, not appears the credits, any credit, and I don't know if this, is because I installed a translation. How can made for appears the credits?

In other "problem", I view in other forums that, when acces to Downloads and acces to category for view downloads, all downloads appears with an icon/image, with this:

And the url that call to this icon/image is:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

But in my forum, not appears this icon/image, and the url that call a "some image" is:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I don't know because my url for this icon/image is different and I don't know how solved this.

Thanks and a regards.

Wanted to thank the coder for this excellent mod. We use this on our site for a while and it is very heavily used. I really LOVE the ability to set a time between downloads for different usergroups. My members have asked for a couple of things regarding this mod... So, I have a couple small questions and also a couple of small suggestions for the next version if at all possible.
Question 1:
How would I get ALL downloads to sort by Alpha?

Request 1:
I am not sure if it has been requested or not, but for the next version my members would like to be able to have alphabetical navigation. Perhaps instead of page numbers be able to jump to jump to files that begin with the letter A for instance. A, B, C, D, E, F, etc...

Request 2:
I would also like to see a field that would be on the submission screen that can be added by the uploader tha can point to a "Support" type thread. On my site, we require users to create an announcement/discussion thread before submitting an upload. I would like to be able for people when downloading a file to see (and be able to click) the link to the "support" thread on the forums.

Request 3:
An option to create a new thread in a specific forum when a new download is added would be nice as well. I know that there is an add on for this, but official support would be nice.

Again, Thank you very much for this mod!

I might be working on this after my exams, as someone else also requested this.

1. No, not at this moment though. But comments will be improved (quick reply editor, better permissions, ability to edit them).
2 + 3. There will be definitely a general report button for each file. So you can use it for the comments too. I'm not sure if I'm going to add another button per comment.

As you may want to keep your statistics. That's the point about statistics, otherwise they would be useless
vBulletin itself is also logging registration, new thread, post, ... stats.

That's not possible at this moment. But there's a vBadvanced CMPS add-on and you can integrate the CMPS on your forumhome.

Some forumhome integration might be added in the future. As 5.1.0 already integrates in the navbar (button, search), postbit and user profile (stats, list).

As I said, the avatar.jpg image is nowhere in the DownloadsII code, unless you edited it yourself. Check the ecdownloads_download_pic phrase which contains the image name.

Q1. Try setting "Sort by Weight" to no.
v6 has serious improved sorting (category based, each category can have different sorting, ascending/descending on all possible fields).
R1. This is not going to make it - I think -. That's more something for a glossary mod (or the vB memberslist).
R2. The add-on can add automatically such a discuss link to the description field of a file.
R3. The add-on is "official" as its coded by CyberRanger, coauthor of DownloadsII.

The storage and download part is the last unfinished thing of v6. I was basing it on the attachment system, but with vB 4 coming soon, I stopped working on it. vB 4 will have the new asset manager, so I'm going to look how integration with that goes.

I also hope they are going to fix the lightbox integration

Ahh, ok... I was looking for a way to sort each category differently. My main cats are done by weight, but I'd like my subs to be sorted by alpha. Sounds like I am really looking forward to v6 sorting options.

Which add-on are you talking about above that adds this functionality? I swear I've looked at everything with DownloadsII.
