Released: 02 Jul 2006 Last Update: 25 Apr 2010 Downloads: 16072
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files  

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.

My vote has already gone to DownloadsII.
Sorry to hear that no preview, I may try to add that myself hopefully.
Yeh server is running in safe mod on.
Operating system Linux
Kernel version 2.6.17.6.dn2.p4
Machine Type i686
Apache version 1.3.36 (Unix)
PERL version 5.8.7
Path to PERL /usr/bin/perl
Installed Perl Modules Click to View
PHP version 4.4.3RC3-dev
MySQL version 4.1.21-standard
I used trailing slash still no effect. Is this because of safe mode?? or something else? I have ec_tmp folder under downloads folder.

EDIT: I have Modified the Download link(with js script) to preview mp3, midi, and other supported formats before download, if you wish me to publish this I will
EDIT I solved the other issue as well, I was trying to bulk import images, hence error, as it wasnt there in main allowed file types, after adding it there it worked nice thanks..

That would be great. I can look at incorporating it.

ait here I go:
1. Upload attached file to clientscript folder of your vb installation.
2. Edit headInclude Template and
add

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

3. Goto Style Manager >> Edit your style >> Downloads Templates >> Downloadsfile>>

Find :

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

Replace it with:


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

Thats it.

You can edit soundpop.js to match your style, make sure you don't add too much it is right now just 1kb, just change colors to match your theme.

I take no credit for this js file as it is not coded by me. I just found a way to implement this, maybe CyberRanger can Implement this better then me.

Jelle, would it be possible for me to set it up so that even guests can download the files?

Also, is this compatible with vbSEO?

Thank!

No, it's not. I am sure it could be, but not at the moment it isn't.

You can allow guests to download, from usergroup permissions, make sure you allow only 10-20 files for guests to download with a delay of 20-25 seconds, which will force them to register

Yes it is compatible with vbSEO as i am using it on my site with vbseo however it does not make use of all the vbseo benefits, however if you search for downloadsII I have started a thread over at vbseo trying to make it better, and you will find out more there.

Thank!

It will work with ALL vB 3.5.x and vB 3.6.x versions, so you don't need to ask it every time

My download urls don't reflect vbseo's urls. vBSEO forums also said pretty much what I already stated, http://www.vbseo.com/f55/does-vbulle...-ii-plug-9611/
[EDIT] after doing some searching at vbseo I found some useful links that it can be done, but the user has to do the custom rewrites themselves, which I am not comfortable doing myself. lol![EDIT]

If you could help me try and remove those last few things, or give me some advice, that would be really good.

Thanks.
I'll take a peek at it tomorrow. Time off with the family right now.

Yeah I had posted another thread over at vbseo as well, which was useful, i never got around to doing any custom code modification, as that got past me a little, but I did do the CRR as that is quite simple, however as there are about 3 people in the last few replys who are using vbseo, maybe we could work together to get the custom code done as that will really help with getting indexed.
