vBDownloads: What is it?

DragonByte Technologies is proud to present vBDownloads v1.0, the most professional, innovative and feature-rich downloads mod to date.

vBDownloads aims to help you manage your forum's downloads in a fast and efficient way, presenting you with all the information you and your users need.

Why vBDownloads?
Whilst looking for a new product idea, we felt that there was a need for a fully-supported downloads database in vBulletin. vBDownloads is the result of this. vBDownloads contains many interesting features such as multi-file downloads, password-protected downloads and many more exciting and innovative features!

Updated:
DownloadsII importer should be fine to use now

To upgrade -> Just reupload the files.

To import -> Go to your AdminCP and then to Import Utility under the Downloads category.

** Updated to 1.2.0 **

This version introduces a number of exciting features into the mod that we hope you will enjoy.

Changes:
Post to Thread*** - Allows administrators to select which forums they would like new threads to go to on a per-category basis with configurable messages.

Delay Downloads*** - This will allow you to add a delay to downloads per usergroup. For example, if you put a 10 second delay on the Registered Users usergroup, when they click a file they will need to wait 10 seconds before it is available. There is also an optional advertisement option that is configurable in the vBulletin Options section of your administration panel.

Category Images - This will remove the default text based category names with an image of your choice allow for a much nicer looking downloads homepage.

Searchable Area - This is a central location where users can view all downloads based on a certain criteria. For example, they could view all files based on the amount of downloads they have.

Profile Tab - This will add a profile tab to user's profiles which will display all of their uploads.

Notification on comment *** - This feature will give users an alert when another user has commented on their upload.

Those marked with *** are pro only features.

This version also fixes an issue that was present with categories from the previous version. We hope you enjoy this update.

- David

The mod has now been updated to fix a bug that would cause BBCode to not parse in Internet Explorer and Firefox.

Updated once again to fix a few bugs, namely a bug that would cause the style of the listings page to mess up if certain BBCode was used and a bug that would cause the WYSIWYG editor to display the wrong description while editing a file.
