DownloadsII
Mod Version: 6.0.9, by RS_Jelle (Coder) RS_Jelle is offline
Developer Last Online: May 2016 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.0.4 Rating: (269 votes - 4.79 average) Installs: 1647
Released: 28 Dec 2009 Last Update: 02 Dec 2011 Downloads: 10921
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files  

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).

anyone have any ideas????

also only get for files that are larger than 1MB... anything smaller works fine. I have the max file size upload that the script would allow for different extensions that i specified.
See the notes in the plug-in description under the heading "Help!!! I can't upload large files??". This is your problem.

I am new to VB, I have done step 1 & 2 But i don't know where to change permissions. do i go to the downloads directory that i uploaded to the forums directory? I look at the code in the downloads but there is more then one place that has permissions

Can you give me the path? or a Copy & Past of the code where i do this.


Is this what I edit? // #######################################################################
// ######################## START MAIN SCRIPT ############################
// #######################################################################

if (!$vbulletin->options['dl2active'])
{
if (($permissions['downloads2permissions'] & $vbulletin->bf_ugp['downloads2permissions']['canviewdisabled']))
{



Thanks

You don't need to edit downloads.php

You need to change the permissions of the /downloads/ folder on your FTP (= chmod), using an FTP program. Search Google for "chmod *the name of your ftp program*" if you don't know how to do that.

You need the "Manage Files".

HTH,

Welshy2008.
Yeah, I don't have that there anymore. I did before the update.

It should show in the navbar when you have "Can Edit All Files" or "Can Manage Moderation Queue" usergroup permissions.

Or maybe you changed some templates? Be sure you reverted all custom changes.

Love this mod thanks.

The only negative I have is that the URL's are so SEO unfriendly.

It would be vastly better if a download was something like:

http://www.yourdomain.com/forum/ downloads.php?do=file&id= YOUR-CHOSEN-TITLEHERE

instead of

http://www.yourdom ain.com/forum/downlo ads.php?do=file&id=24[/url]

Also allow a meta description etc.

Also a SEO based title, meta description deal for the default URL of the mod would be great.

All it would take is a title and meta description field to be added to the admin area, for catagory, and primary mod root URL

Each upload could have the same fields.

Also if you could somehow make the individual download URL's into RSS format, that would be fantastic.

Oh and finally , not forcing a catagory for the downloads would be handy.

We use the same content and don't need catagories, it's just one more thing people have to click thr to get to their download.

Open htm file in browser?

I have files uploaded as .htm files.
When someone downloads the file they must open it from their browser.

Is there a way force a browser window to open when downloading a file?

Question

Hello Jelle,
Got a good strange one for ya... I have continuously loaded a file, with all setting correct I might add, lol, and no matter what I do, when I try to download it, I get errors 500 and 400...

It's the only file I'm having that problem with so far, but I can't figure out why I'm getting errors on it, and it's is the v603 on vb402...

Got any ideas my friend? I know the file is good because it does just fine on the other sites I work with...

I just noticed that the new version doesn't have stats (downloads.php?do=stats). Is it available?
******Added later************
Never mind. Found it in Admin CP. Silly me.

A to Z Menu

Hello RS_Jelle,
Is there any way to have an A to Z Menu for files? So you could have all your files in order from A to Z like the Members list
