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.

  1. Just remove their permissions to add files
  2. This isn't possible at the moment and isn't very easy to create quickly. Although it isn't very difficult also (add a new field to the user table and check for it, so that's an easy thing). I will look into this to create a plugin for it
  3. This is one of the top requests: custom file fields. I can't promise anything, but ofcourse we will try to get this in the next big release.
  4. Adding a search box to the left column isn't very difficult, just an easy template edit:
    Open the downloads_wrapper_site template
    Find:

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

    Above add:

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

  5. The same as point 5, just another code to add, your advertising code (img or something else).
  6. This requires file edits when you want a field for this in the category admin. If there aren't a lot of categories, you can use template conditionals.
    Place them below $navbar in the DOWNLOADS template.
    For example:

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

    Ofcourse you just change the number 5 to the correct category id.

To become default: I really want a search field placed on each page in a next big release, so that will become default normally. We are also considering the custom file fields like I said. I don't think the custom category fields for advertisements are going to make it to become a default feature, not that many people would use this.

1. I meant posting comments not files sorry. eg. close the thread. I want to close the file, so they can still download but not post comments.

2. Okay cool and to help out, this site is using DownloadsII it appears and they have implemented pretty much everything im looking for, so maybe if you take a look at this site, it will help you to implement some of the features.

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

This link above will show you the disclaimer they have integrated somehow.

**I also was wondering if you could possibly make the links either like they are and vbseo compliant as well. If you need to know more on this let me know, as a lot more people are using vbseo it would be great to have it default.** (The above link has been made like that because of vbseo)

3. That would be great. It would really help out, and when you do it, it may be wise to have it usergroup permissioned as well. eg. only mods can change the status.

4. I was trying to get a search box like the one I showed you in the pic with the drop down menu with those extra options. The one in the above link works. on my site www.gamerzneeds.net/forums/files.html the search works, but the drop down menus do not work. here is the code I used.

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

Also What is the code you have used to create the boxes around things eg. latest files. As that is the box I would like to get around the search box.

5. Thanks

6. Thanks, although that may be a possibility for now. Once I start adding around 50 categories I think it will be a bit messy maybe.
Is there any easier way? or a possibility of it being easier in the next version?


Thanks for your reply and hope im not being to much trouble.

I have this rather strange issue on a new install on vb 3.60 where no template files was altered. Logo image does not display in any style, when in page downloads.php?do=add&cat=

it displays fine in other pages. A view source shows the logo as being there.

Unless someone has ftp access to your site (where he can see the actual file name in the downloads folder), hotlinking is very unlikely. The file that is actually delivered to the user is copied from it's true location, renamed, delivered to the user, then deleted.

Can you attach some pics of what you mean? Are you talking about the vbulletin image in the upper left hand corner? If yes, it should be there.

Right, IE only and only on your site when the "Add" option is selected. I'll look into it some more.

One problem is that the page itself has a lot of errors. Please note that DownloadsII is valid xhtml 1.0. Used with the standard vbulletin style, the problem you are having doesn't occur. So ... somewhere there is a funky html code in a template you've modified that is causing the problem.

For example, here is a site that uses DownloadsII ver 5.0.4. Check out the validation: http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=ht...%3Fstyleid%3D1

Compare that to your site: http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=ht...doctype=Inline

There's probably something really minor that needs tweaked. I'll keep looking too. In the meantime, it would be good if you tried to clean up some of the errors.

BTW - I'd encourage everyone to run your site through: http://validator.w3.org/

Here's a site that doesn't validate yet works fine: http://www.xtreme-gamer.com/forums/d...o=file&id=1292 ODD!!!

I did find an oddity in the template downloads_file.

Look for this:

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

Remove the width="90%" and see if that makes a difference when you are viewing the details for a file.
