vB Version: 3.5.2 Rating: (2 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 20

Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Code Changes Additional Files Is in Beta Stage  

ecRelease is a BETA - stuff will go wrong

What is ecRelease?

It is a download database that integrates into vBulletin. It is very similar to the vBulletin.org download database (in concept) and can be found in action on www.elitecoders.org. It allows you to turn any thread in any forum into a release that will show up in the download section. Adding a release is similar to adding a poll.

Demo

overview - http://www.elitecoders.org/forum/showthread.php?p=69253
download database - http://www.elitecoders.org/forum/downloads.php
release thread - http://www.elitecoders.org/forum/showthread.php?p=67325

Known Bugs:

- Possible bug: When you submit, it wants to include a poll even though the poll is not checked
- Possible bug: MySQL error on attachment download

FAQ:

Q: Fatal error: Field releaseid is not defined in $validfields in class vb_datamanager_thread in /includes/class_dm.php on line 485
A: Perform the file edit via install.php or manually
Q: The drop down box for Release Categories is not a drop down
A: They should be separated by semicolons, not commas.

Here are my plans for future versions:

- Set "per forum" releases (depends on support)

Phrase Changes

(many are added automatically)

Template Changes

SHOWTHREAD
newpost
(many are added automatically)

File Changes

includes/class_dm_threadpost.php (can be done automatically or manually)

Install

Upload the contents of 'upload' to your forum directory
Import ecrelease.xml into your PRODUCTS by going to Plugin System -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product
Perform the edits in edits.txt (templates)
Upload install.php to perform the 1 file edit, make sure you chmod +writeable

Time: 3-4 minutes

Upgrade

You can make all changes automatically by importing the XML or you can do things piece by piece by looking at the info files provided with the hack.

I have installed...
2 problems
1. The drop down box for Release Categories is not a drop down
all the catergory items show as "Movie,Music,Software,Game,Other" in the box

2. When you submit, it wants to include a poll even though the poll is not checked..Cant proceed as i dont want to install a poll!!

Please advise on these 2 issus found atm, dont know if theres any more as i cant go any further!!

Also is there a way to set this per forum as i am sure peeps dont want releases all over the place

Regards

Bashy

You didn't make the file edit/run the install.php to do the file edits for you.

1. The drop down box for Release Categories is not a drop down
all the catergory items show as "Movie,Music,Software,Game,Other" in the box
They should be separated by semicolons, sorry.

2. When you submit, it wants to include a poll even though the poll is not checked..Cant proceed as i dont want to install a poll!!
Weird, I dont have this problem. Does anyone else? I think it could be a problem with the edits you made in "newthread."

Also is there a way to set this per forum as i am sure peeps dont want releases all over the place
Nope, its designed to work in any forum - thats sorta the point in designing the hack the way I did. I could have done it like the article mod and just converted every post within a forum into a release, but I decided not to since I like this method more. If there is overwheliming popular support for limiting which forums can or can not be "released" in, then I may add it to the usergroup permissions per forum or something like that.

UPDATE release SET
downloads = downloads + 1
WHERE postid = 1997;
What version of mysql are you using? I dont get this error for some reason.

Is actually in the template 4 times which could cause the Poll problem, therefore which one do i place your edit below?

Btw, this edit isnt in newpost, its in SHOWTHREAD, so it isnt effecting you...

The DB error is for invalid syntax... at least thats what it seems like. Does anyone else have this problem?

Do you only get this error when clicking on who downloaded, or do you also get it when downloading attachments. The two hacks may have some conflicts, but this doesnt look like one.
