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.

I have an issues with the latest version. I recently put in two new sections in my downloads and have set it so only certain usergroups can access them. The problem is they are unable to see it. No matter which way I put the Exclude Categories section and the To permit this usergroup to view all categories options. It is either they can see the excluded categories (6 and 7, which out of these two I only want them to see 6) or they can only see categories 1-5.

Any help in resolving this would be appreciated as I have run out of ideas myself.

Multiple Secondary Usergroups - They don't inherit permissions

If I have several secondary user groups, this does not inherit the permissions of each user group. While one usergroup may be limited to categories 1,2,3 and another secondary group to 4,5,6 - if one of my users pays for both usergroups it doesn't inherit the permissions of both groups to enable to view the combination of both categories because it excludes categories in both groups.

Is there a possible fix or solution to this?

My users purchase products through the subscription which gives them access to download products as well as access to support forums for those products. Each usergroup is based on permissions and if they purchase two products, then two forums open to them and they are then a member of two usergroups. Each of these usergroups with separate download category permissions.

Thank you in advance for anyone who has encountered and possibly fixed this or knows of a solution.

This is a fantastic product though and much appreciate the time that went into it.

I don't know if this has been asked yet or not, forgive me if it has.

I would like to know if there is a way when a user clicks the screenshot it shows the preview of the screenshot instead of forcing them to download the file?

The biggest complaint I get is when they find the file they are looking for, and they want to take a look at the screenshot, it downloads the file. Then they realize that if they click the Title url to the download, then they can take a look at the full size screenshot.

Thanks for the hard work on this mod, it is a great addition to my forums

I would think that you could change the link if you wanted to, or simply change the + mark image to an image that shows direct download. That's what we are doing because the + mark doesn't explain enough.

The image is located here: images/buttons/collapse_tcat_collapsed.gif

It doesn't seem to have it's own css and borrows the theme css and basically puts the tcat image in the place of a download. So create a new button and call it downloads II and upload it into your images file. Then go into the downloads.php file and search for the tcat text and change that button to match to the download button you've just created.

I realize this doesn't solve the issue of popping up, but while you are in that download.php file it will offer a bit of a solution.

If you want to remove the download.php function on the + button all together, simply go into the downloads.php file and search for:

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

located on the tcat_collapsed location. If you remove the act=down, you are removing the action to download and thus calling the description rather than the download action.

Hope this helps!

Some of my members are reporting being told they've exceeded their daily limit despite being in a usergroup with no limits. I've re-imported the product file, confirmed they are seeing the error message by logging in as their username and checked the groups permissions were set correctly (see screenshot).

Any thoughts on the problem might be would be gratefully received...

Thanks!

Some additional feedback. With all limit settings at -1 I have the problem whether it's their primary or secondary usergroup (I also tried moving them to a different group) but changing the download limit to a high number is a workaround so it feels as if 'no limit' isn't being applied correctly...

I would love to have this mod, but it needs to have full compatibility with 3.7.

I will be keeping an eye out in 3.7 mods for this one.

Thnx,
~thenutthouse
