umm... can u do few more modification ,

like: a)thread will be open for mass imported file ..
b)One thread of 12 track Of an album..Customizeable
one thread for each track/file or One thread for *trac/file ?

what ever it suits for this add-ons...

can u plz give a thought for it

Personally I think.. if you would use the import feature.. I would rather have it to create 1 thread with the "New Files Added to "Category Name Goes Here" and then list the files in the post.. Because if you would to import 50 files.. creating 50 separate threads would flood out the forum.. So maybe that could be an option "Group Files in Thread on mass import"

Hi CyberRanger,

Can I specify different forum to create threads in for each category?

As always, keep up the good work!

No, but I plan to add that. I need to put more hooks into downloads.php first

Yes, each category can have it's own forum specified.

Looking forward to it... It'd be good to give users the option.

Thanks for this. One issue:

Datenbankfehler in vBulletin 3.5.4:

Invalid SQL:
UPDATE vb3_dl_files SET `description`='While LightZone 2.0 is still in beta, Light Crafts is offering an Open Beta download for current and potential customers to see what's new in LightZone 2.0.

Diese Beta ist lauffähig bis zum 14. November 2006


Thread Discussion' WHERE `id`=156;

MySQL-Fehler : You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 's new in LightZone 2.0.

[B]Diese Beta ist lauffähig bis zum 14. November 2006' at line 1
Fehler-Nr. : 1064
----

The description to the download seems to force an error with the database.

Any idea what´s going wrong?

Rats, looks like I needed to add an escape for the quotes. I'll get a new release out in a day or two.

Version 1.0.1 released to fix a bug if the file description contained a single or double quote.

Many more features coming later this week!

Can there be option in the settings letting admins decide if they want to place link to a thread in description of file instead just being on by default?

We have this problem when installing the product.

Invalid SQL:

### INSERT QUERY GENERATED BY fetch_query_sql() ###
INSERT INTO vb3_plugin
(`active`, `executionorder`, `title`, `hookname`, `phpcode`, `product`)
VALUES
('1', '5', 'DownloadsII Create Threads Cache Templates', 'cache_templates', '$globaltemplates = array_merge($globaltemplates, array(\'downloadii_create_newthread\', \'downloadii_create_newthread_title\',\'downloadii_create_newthread_desc\',\'dow nloadii_create_post\'));', 'dl2_thread');


MySQL-Fehler : Unknown column 'executionorder' in 'field list'

O.k., just had to delete the lines "executionorder" in the xml-file; so it works for 3.5.5.
