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.

I've searched this thread and not found a way to update the counter in the postbit. My test user has uploaded 5 files. All counts show that there are 5 files, except in the user postbit, it shows three.

I tried running the query "UPDATE dl_main SET downloads = 0" as posted here, but that did not fix the postbit counter. Any thoughts?

I seem to be having an issue where I have 4 download categories and several user groups. Some user groups have access to a few categories and other user groups have access to other categories. If I have a user that has access to multiple user groups then that user can only see his download category not everything.

So if I have download categories A, B, C, and D and I have user groups 1, 2, and 3:

Usergroup 1 has access to downloads A, and B
Usergroup 2 has access to download C
Usergroup 3 has access to download D

If I have a user that has access to usergroup 1 he can see downloads A and B - Perfect
but if I add usergroup 2 to his profile then all he sees is download C - Not so good

Now usergroup 1 download permissions are set to show categories A, B
usergroup 2 download permissions are set to show only category C

It seems that downloadsII uses the most restrictive permissions on usergroups to decide which to display instead of being inclusive.

This is the SAME issue as #3746


Any ideas, or help would be appreciated.

I spent about a week implementing and evaluating both DownloadsII and Links and Downloads Manager. I really like the layout of the DownloadsII file area better than LDM. The presentation is better and it's more intuitive. But the absense of a progress bar made it a choice I couldn't go with. LDM has a very well implemented progress bar for uploads so the user's browser doesn't just sit there churning with no feedback during large uploads. In addition, LDM's developer is more responsive in his forum. Of course, DownloadsII's developer does this for us all for free so it isn't fair to complain. But (at least at present) it seems LDM is better supported.

If DownloadsII ever adds a progress bar like LDM's I'll probably switch over.

I am trying to add my IntelliTEXT (Vibrant Media) ad's into the downloads mod. But I am having trouble making them show up. I use conditions so that the ad's aren't everywhere on my site, just on the showthread template. But I want to add them to my downloads as well.

What should the condition look like or more to the point, which template should I be using for the if condition?

This is what I am using now.

As a matter of fact. I can't get Google ads to show up either.

This is a great modification .. as many can attest to!

I had one question. My 'collapse_tcat_collapsed.gif' image is a very light image that doesn't work against the background of the 'download area' (see attached image).

How can I change the path? I want to change the image to something else and need to point it to another image.

Thanks again for this great mod!

Hi. My users are getting this error when trying to download:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

//EDIT//
Nevermind. I changed the permissions on the ./downloads//ec_tmp/ folder to 777 and now there is no error.

Is there any way to not show the sub-sub-categories on the main page? I would like to show only one level of sub-categories on each of my pages.

Thanks!

I love this mod. Im not using it exactly as it was intended but it works great. I only have one question. Is their a way to only count one download per member and/or stop the author from downloading his own product over and over.

Take a look at the permission settings for each Usergroup.

You can set the following in the Usergroups:
1. You can set maximum MB upload
2. You can set maximum MB download
3. You can set maximum number of files a user can download
4. You can use strict daily download limits which are triggered by the maximum MB or the maximum number of files.

Sadly I cut out the downloading aspect of files from the computer. What hapens is members can only put up links. These links can't have a limit because they have no size and I want guests to be able to view them as well. I was hopeing I could test the author of the download and not count a followed link.
