vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (208 votes - 4.80 average) Installs: 2108
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.

It's not that easy to add in a moment, so I can't give "some tips". First you need a new piece of PHP code to create the 100x100 thumbnails and then you can add them to the template.
Another method is without using special thumbnails and just setting style="width: 100px; height: 100px;" in the img tag for the normal image. You can do this pretty easy in the correct template when you add the PHP code for the normal thumbnails (have a look at the category code part of downloads.php, there's a loop function to pick a thumbnail) to the column functions in class_downloads.php.

For the Create New Thread mod, you better ask this in the mod thread to keep things organised

That's not possible at the moment, so it's probably a custom coded mod for that site.

any ideeas?
I already added this to v6, next to the existing custom titles for better SEO. It's done using a plugin as we want to avoid modifying any templates.
But meta tags aren't that important any more for SEO. Google is looking more at your inbound links etc. for their PageRank system.

Hmm, I don't see your question anywhere else in the thread
That's not possible as we assume the title isn't that long normally (you can put all extra details in the description which is cropped) ...

Step 1:

Open downloads.php

$file['name2'] = str_replace(' ', '-', $file['name']);



Step 2:

Edit the template downloads_cat_filebit

Find:

<a href="downloads.php?do=file&amp;id={$file['id']}

Replace with:

<a href="downloads.php?do=file&amp;id={$file['id']}-{$file['name2']}">

I have just installed this mod and am having troubles with it. I followed the steps right through to "6. Create directories in the 'Categories' menu under the 'Downloads' in your admincp". When I try this all I get is a blank page beside the nav menu. The settings work but the rest (Categories, Import, Downloads) are all blank.

That's pretty strange. First try reuploading all the files to your ftp and re-import the product file (using the overwrite option when importing it).

You have to edit the navbar template yourself for this. Have a look at the Install-readme.txt file which is included in the package.

That's not a problem. You just need to create some new ones using the category admin of DownloadsII in the AdminCP.

Sorry, I missed your question because I thought it was a tutorial only and didn't read the rest of the message. I didn't ignored you intentional, you have to do more 3vil things to get me angry

You can find the url HTML code of the panel bits in the downloads_panel_bit template. The $url variable in it is generated by /includes/class_downloads.php (just search in it for $url, it's there multiple times for the diferent top lists).

Thank you for this mod superb *clicks install*.

I have one issue though. I see that you can insert images, which is eye-candy! However, is there a way to place the category name under 'Description' and just leave an image in the 'Category' section?

I have started something similar Here, but there's just too much white space surrounding the icon!

Also, how to replace the default download icon, when there is not an image in its place?

Once again, superb Hack (I'm sure you already knew that since it was MOTM, hehe)

You have to remove the <br /><br /> before the img HTML code in the template to remove the white space

It's placed in the buttons folder of the vBulletin style you are using, so it depends from the style the user have selected. So you need to upload it to your /forums/styledirectory/buttons/ folder as download.gif.

Righteous! One last, quick question though. Is there any way to get rid of the white space to the right of the image? You can see it Here

Thanks

hi craiovaonline, maybe you can try this for seo your downloadsII mods





This post had been posted in vbseo.com too, but its need more help from the author, maybe this can be using in next downloadsII release


So your title, meta description and meta keywords will be like this:

Your file name, Category name



To do that replace $headinclude in downloads template with this full code:
