Mod Version: 3.0.2, by AndrewD (R.I.P) AndrewD is offline
Developer Last Online: Apr 2010 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.0.0 Rating: (26 votes - 4.77 average) Installs: 216
Released: 28 Dec 2009 Last Update: 15 Mar 2010 Downloads: 1691
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files Translations  

What this is and does

Version 3.0.2-PL1 uploaded 15th March 2010.

LDM is a general-purpose tool for managing libraries of links and files, and handling uploads and downloads in a flexible way, while tracking and controlling user access. It also has a range of integrated media players and a large library of 'plugin' extras. It has been developed steadily since the release of vb 3.0 some six years ago, based on extensive feedback from users at vb.org.

I think the 3.0.x releases have been tested enough and are no longer considered beta. However, I still want feedback on features that do not work at all or do not work properly.

Translations in Spanish, French, Chinese, German and Dutch are available as phrase files and are more or less complete.

Installation and Usage Explained in the on-line Wiki, with a brief explanation in the file instructions.txt in the release zip.

The installer will either create a new LDM database, or recognise that you already have an earlier version installed and update it.

Unlike earlier versions of LDM, this version automatically adds a link to the product on the main vb navbar.

Please do not blindly install on a live forum without being sure that you have tested it adequately. Use carefully and always backup your database before upgrading. Post reports of problems and suggestions for enhancements in this thread. You can find extensive discussion of this mod in the VB3.7 mods and VB3.8 mods sections.

Staff Note: Sadly, Andrew D, the developer of the Links and Downloads Manager has passed away after a long period of illness.

Re-import with overwrite.
Ahhhhhh - I should know better than to give up before you guys comment. Ok - it's installed - and it picked up all my old tables, images and documents like before - saving me from weeks of re-entry work.... I guess I won't be abandoning this product yet... Thanks very much for your help. It appears (for now - on my test.db) that it works under my current parameters:

vB - 4.1.4
PHP - 5.3.6
MySQL - 5.1.55-log

If I run into any snags, I'll post them here.

By the way - you guys don't know (on the Shadowbox extra) which hook I specify when I add the Shadowbox plugin do you? I cannot remember, the instructions don't indicate it, and I cannot figure out which one it is just by looking at it...

Thanks again for the assistance - I appreciate it a great deal.

For anyone who needs it. Here is the LDM wiki.

That's great news. I was wondering about PHP5.3.6
Now only to find out if LDM works well on the latest version of MySQL, as that contains a major performance improvement and IBxAnders advises to upgrade to it.

I do not use the shadowbox plugin, but if you search the 3.7 LDM thread for it, you will likely find an answer.

I would only be allowed, technically, to start from the vB 3 version and do my own conversion to vB4 - that is a lot of work for this kind of mod. If I were to take it on, I would love to start with the vB 4 version, but with his unfortunate passing, I have no way to get proper permissions for it.

We'll see what happens.
Maybe you can talk to the guys on vB.org and ask for permission. Also, maybe you can try to create some sort of group with more developers. There seems to be some guys around with knowledge.

Unhappy Issues Under Safari, Chrome and IE

One new wrinkle -

With

vB - 4.1.4
PHP - 5.3.6
MySQL - 5.1.55-log

This version of LDM appears not to playing well with Safari, Chrome or IE...the text links within LDM do not come up - they show up as unknowns (question mark).

Under Firefox its fine - but not Safari, Chrome or IE.

Any ideas?

Thxs in advance -

That could be a PHP 5.3 issue. If this is true then thousands of sites will encounter this issue after upgrading to PHP 5.3
I have LDM working fine with vb4.1.4

Maybe it's because someone tried to access one of the old files, if I recall, I added redirection using htaccess.

Maybe you can do that and avoid users to call for those links.

Thats simple to resolve. The new navigation manage has removed the navigation edits. None the less you can manually add the tabs and links. That will take you a few minutes.
I dont know what you mean with:
- FORMHOME can't see last post

Yes, I see now.
Do you have a busy website? I really like the last post function, but it has slow queries. Which means that if you have a busy site, this function will slow down your site. I had to disable it. I'm not sure how to fix the last post function.

I think its a much better idea to have a new post widget for the sidebar or for vbadvanced. This needs to be coded. I will need this as well.
When I upgrade my site I will need
