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.

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



Instructions & Support

Requires vBulletin 4.0.4 or higher. Not fully compatible with lower vB 4 versions.
It works fine with both the new editor in vB 4.1.4 or higher and the old one in previous vB versions.

Read the instructions in the next two posts before installing/upgrading this mod!

You can find an installation/upgrade manual in the zip package (Readme.txt).

I try to answer most questions asked in this thread. Please don't send any pm's if I don't ask for them. 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 some screenshots of the front-end and back-end (AdminCP part) of the DownloadsII software.

You can find a live demo on my own site: Minatica.be Downloads (Dutch).
Though keep in mind that we are running a restyled and modified version of it.

Changelog (version 6.0.9)

Jelle
  • Added support for vB 4.1.8 bit processing with 'each' construct (backwards compatible)
  • Fixed comma listing for vB 4.1.8 (using "old" method)
Older changelogs are included in the zip package.

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

This is probably the most asked question. It's mostly caused by some default PHP settings: check "PHP Max Post Size" and "PHP Maximum Upload Size" at your AdminCP home.

Then have a look at this post for the solution to up these values.
Also have a look at this post at vB.com (but ignore the MySQL part as DownloadsII is only using the file system).

Cannot get download II to work in 4.2 PL3

Hi, I downloaded the plugin but at the settings there were error messages (see attached), my forum homepage has no download section created as well. Wondering if this mod still works in the latest 4.2 PL3 ? Thanks for any help.

Try to re-upload all files in binary mode. When you make it to work, you will need to manually create a navbar link to downloads.php

it works fine with the latest 4.2 PL3. It won't automatically make the downloads tab for you since it hasn't been updated for the new navigation manager, just add the tab yourself.

As for your other problems, I have no idea.

I use it on my site which is 4.2 PL3 and it is an AWESOME mod. I hope the developer keeps making it and updating it. I will pay for updates to 5 and so forth. Well worth it!

Did you check permission for every group you are member?

I guess the problem I have is that I want all groups to have no upload/download rights except for the usergroup called upload/download. I want ONE usergroup that controls that ability. It is my understanding that if you are part of a group with x permissions, regardless of your other groups you have that permission.

Oddly, if I give myself the same permissions as another person, they can upload and I can't. We both have the same four groups, but unless I remove all but one, I can't upload where as they can.

Does this modification work with Secondary Usergroups.

it seems secondary usergroups are not overriding permissions ?

Thanks
Mick

Permissions are structured like banned groups, one deny overrides all allow.

Should it not work like the forums though?

Where an yes overrides everything?

You can't have subscriptions with this system working like that!

what if you want to allow your members instant access to downloads if they contribute to the site... you would need to have the subscription change there PRIMARY USERGROUP... now what if a moderator wanted to have a subscription... that means the moderator will become a contributed member and lose his moderator PRIMARY usergroup???

Silly really!

Primary usergroup is irrelevant, as long as any group has a deny, primary or secondary, the user will not have access.

If you want members to gain access after contributing, have one group with no permissions, then when the member contributes, remove that group. You could also use the promotion system in the same way, so that they get promoted out of the group with the no permissions attached to it.

As for whether or not it should work like the forums, it does, its modeled on how the banned groups work in the forums. It was design decision by the creator, so unless you can convince them to change it, or change it yourself it isn't likely to change at all.
