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.

This new release contains some security fixes of a high level, so we recommand everyone to upgrade immediately.

Also don't forget to revert the DownloadsII templates if you modified them (and redo the modifications then)

I just noticed that the changelog was posted "today".
But I've already got a 5.04 version. I presume I have a beta then? Are there changes between the version I already have, and the one from today?

Yes, you had a beta. You should install the version that was posted today in the product announcement.

@Cyberranger: I promised to say if my problem was fixed.
I could not fix it, because I could not revert the templates. Reason for that, was because all templates were original and not edited. In that case the revert option is blanked out.

However.... with the new 5.04 the problem is fixed. I don't need to use any "go" with a single file or select it. The only thing I have to do is to use the "approve" from the pulldown and immediately the file is approved. This is how it workd the very 1st time I installed it.
So my problem is fixed with this new version.

Many thanks again!

Ehmmz.... sorry I was too quick, but now I know the cause now to my problem.

As soon as I use the vBA code in the downloads.php file, the problem returns.

The only thing I do is add the following code to the downloads.php:

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

When this is not in there... it works great. How can I fix it?

Oh ... I do not know! If you modify downloads.php, all bets are off!

If you want to use vba, I'd suggest you use the add-on we've developed (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?p=922535) and not mess with downloads.php
