Limit Attachment Downloads 1.3


The writing of this hack was sponsored by: sama3y.net

About this hack:
This hack allows you to limit the number of attachments users can download during a given time period.

This hack is pretty flexible right now. You can choose how many attachments a user can download in a give time. That given time can be set to an hour, a day, a week, a month, 3 months, 6 months, or a year. You also set which attachment types get counted for this hack. Also, you set which usergroups get affected by this hack and how many downloads each usergoup can make.

If a user tries downloading past their limit, they will get an error message. This error message includes when they will be able to start downloading again.

Also, there is a cron job to remove from the table that this hack creates, all the rows that are past the limit date so your table doesn't grow forever and saves you space.

I am having same issues, but I am guessing this hack is for registered users only. Seems a little ridiculous to try and put a time limit on a guest when you have so many of them visiting your board and no way of controlling who has or has not downloaded a file from your board.
Might be a nice feature if this hack had a way to record IPs from guest and maybe allow limited downloads by their address.

Hi,

Im looking for a hack to let me show the thumbnails to the unregistered users, but dont let they download the attachment (or limit the download) if they dont register and log in.

This hack can help me with that?

Thanks...

hey abe1,

i ran into a problem and received a much of pm's from my members

well basically members that never downloaded any attachments received a message that they will have to wait x amount of time and a members forwarded the message and found that the dates if off wacked.

sample message:

You have reached your download limit. You will be able to download again on 01-01-1970 at 01:00 PM. Or to avoid this error MESSAGE, and continue to download more program. You can subscribe as a premium member. Ask an admin for details.
that extra message i added,is there a fix for that issue
