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.

Install

1. Upload the contents of 'upload' to your forum directory
2. Import product-downloads.xml into your products be going to Plugin System -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product
3. Change the permissions on the directory called 'downloads' (under your forum directory) making it writeable and executable (chmod 777) (Note for Advanced users: once you have installed the product, you also have the option to place the 'downloads' folder anywhere in your web server's path.)
4. Go to your 'Usergroup Manager' and assign usergroups permissions
5. Go to the 'Settings' menu under 'Downloads' in your admincp and fill them out accordingly
6. Create directories in the 'Categories' menu under the 'Downloads' in your admincp
7. If you would like to import files go to the 'Import' menu under 'Downloads' and specify a directory to import
Time: 2-3 Minutes

Importing Files

1) Once you specify a directory it will only prompt you to import files with allowed extensions that are readable
2) The filename for a file will be either the name specified for that individual file, the name specified for files that do not have a name specified, or the filename - the extension
3) The author will be the author specified for that individual file or the author specified for files that do not have an author specified.
4) File description, category, and pinned follow the same rule as author.
5) Only files with valid categories that are checked for import can be imported. If you specify a master category for those files that do not have a category specified, then files without valid categories assigned will be assigned to the master category.

Grrrrr .... sorry to do this to those that have downloaded already but another security issue was brought to my attention. The latest file (ver 1.0.1) contains a fix for that. Once again, if you already have the mod installed, simply load downloads.php into your forum folder.

The mod lets users load files that can be shared with others. Here's an example of the main page: http://www.strategyzoneonline.com/forums/downloads.php? and here's a detail look: http://www.strategyzoneonline.com/fo...o=file&id=1169

Okay, fixed now. Please download version 1.0.2 if you've already done a download. If you ALREADY have an installation, just upload downloads.php, that's the only file that's changed, including ecDownloads 4.1.x installs.
