vB Version: 3.5.x Rating: (22 votes - 4.91 average) Installs: 337
Released: 26 Jun 2005 Last Update: 11 May 2006 Downloads: 438
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Additional Files  

LDM extends VBulletin to manage a library of documents, files and links to other web sites. Documents can be stored on your own web site, stored on your server separate from the web site, uploaded by your user community, or held somewhere else altogether. So you can use LDM to provide your user community with access to your own files and allow them to share files with each other.

12/08/06 - Versions that work with vb36 are available and supported in the VB36 thread. Version 2.2.1, which works with VB 3.5 but not with VB 3.6, remains available here.

Thanks to everyone who has helped with all the design, testing, etc.
Translations are provided (thanks dLutt and LeeWicked) into German, (thanks to Allan) into French, and (thanks to Hugo) into Spanish. Harry1951 has handled the Dutch translation.

Screenshots, Instructions and How to Install

Full details and instructions are available as a Wiki at http://www.eirma.org/wikis/index.php...nloads_Manager

LDM installs as a VBulletin product. There are no modifications required to standard VB code.

Basically - upload php files and run the installer through VB's Product installer. No changes needed to VB code. Remember to BACKUP YOUR DATABASE. By default, LDM prefixes its database tables 'local_'. Edit the configuration file, local_links_init.php, if you need/wish to change this.

LDM can handle an essentially unlimited number of categories and nested subcategories, and an unlimited number of entries (hyperlinks or downloadable files). Each entry can be placed in one or several categories. Categories can have styles. Descriptions and titles can optionally include BBcodes, smilies, images and html, giving the possibility to add images, colouring, etc. File types can be flagged using icons and individual entries can also have associated thumbnail images.

Standards templates are provided for libraries of links, files, documents, and photographs.

Users can offer comments and rate the links/downloads. Each user is allowed one rating and many comments per entry, and can freely edit these if they change their mind.

Permission to use specific features is established via the product's admin page, where the administrator specifies which usergroups can add and edit entries, comment and rate these entries, moderate, etc.

By default, all entries are visible to all users. You can restrict visibility/access to links and categories by using the permissions masks from your board's forums.

Moderation of new entries is available but turned off by default.

Users can report bad links to the relevant moderators/administrators.

Each user can flag links as his/her "Favourites".

Modules are provided for VBAdvanced.

Hooks are provided in suitable places in LDM and sample plugins are included in the release (see extras directory), for example to integrate with ID3 tags in mp3 files, for slideshows, to autocreate new threads in your forums, etc.

Plus much more.

If a user is a guest, can I say they CAN'T see the downloadlink/url link BUT CAN see the filename/linkname and description?

In that case, this is what I'm looking for

Yes, you can configure it in this way, but you need to understand how the permissions system works, see instructions.txt.

a) Out of the box, all entries are available to all users and only administrators can create/edit links. The admin page provides a large number of permission settings to change this per user group.

b) You give each a url/download access permissions by 'associating' it with one of your board's forums which has the required permissions masks. The admin page can be used to provide a default forum.

c) You can set it up either so that usergroups only see the urls/downloads they are allowed to access, or so that they see everything but can't get at the file

d) You need to read the instructions file - in particular, look at the explanation of the admin parameters *default_forumid* and the group settings for *can_see_protected_links_on_portal*

very nice. useful. however it would be better if admins were able to upload files from the control panel so you could offer files from your own site. i mean many of us use uploading services like rapidshare, yousendit and others, but they don't allow direct links. so ..yah.. please consider it. will really appreciate the ability to add downloads from the admin cp. thanks.

I avoided offering this with the VB3.0 version, but am willing to think again. Question - what is the maximum file size you would want to upload?

I sort links by date in descending order, and when I validate all links, it forgets which ones were uploaded last and screws around with the order they are displayed. Is there a fix for this?

Will take a look. Currently the sort order is not retained between accesses - it will probably need storing in a cookie or such like.

Why do you need to know the max file size as you are usually limited by the server setting like in you php.ini file... which we have ours set higher for the bigger uploads we do via the browser.

Exactly so - before coding this, I want to make sure people aren't expecting to be able to handle arbitrarily large files. Those who run on shared servers are often limited by a small upload_max_filesize and post_max_size, around 2M.
