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.

It's also coded 100% XHTML 1.0 Transitional valid, just like vBulletin itself.



Instructions & Support

Requires vBulletin 4.0.4 or higher. Not fully compatible with lower vB 4 versions.
It works fine with both the new editor in vB 4.1.4 or higher and the old one in previous vB versions.

Read the instructions in the next two posts before installing/upgrading this mod!

You can find an installation/upgrade manual in the zip package (Readme.txt).

I try to answer most questions asked in this thread. Please don't send any pm's if I don't ask for them. 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 some screenshots of the front-end and back-end (AdminCP part) of the DownloadsII software.

You can find a live demo on my own site: Minatica.be Downloads (Dutch).
Though keep in mind that we are running a restyled and modified version of it.

Changelog (version 6.0.9)

Jelle
  • Added support for vB 4.1.8 bit processing with 'each' construct (backwards compatible)
  • Fixed comma listing for vB 4.1.8 (using "old" method)
Older changelogs are included in the zip package.

Help!!! I can't upload large files??

This is probably the most asked question. It's mostly caused by some default PHP settings: check "PHP Max Post Size" and "PHP Maximum Upload Size" at your AdminCP home.

Then have a look at this post for the solution to up these values.
Also have a look at this post at vB.com (but ignore the MySQL part as DownloadsII is only using the file system).

Anyone have any other tips for this issue? It below being the external img BBcode setting.

The setting was off, but after turning it on, I do get the video button now in the editor, however the video bbCode is still not embedding the video (not being parsed). All I'm getting are links. Any other tips before I start digging into the code?

Good catch. The normal BBCode parser doesn't seem to handle that.

In downloads.php
find

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

and add this above

Help in settings

Hi,

I do not know if this is the right site to post about this....
I have installed DownloadsII version 6.x
Everything looks fine however I do not know how:
1. Where allow a user to use Downloads
2. Where to modify the default test category:
Test Category This is a test category. You can edit it in your AdminCP.

Thanks

most likely it's file size ..
increase the size..
also you need to see what is allowed by your host co.
they might have Maximum file upload size and or Maximum HTTP POST size
set low

I wanted to see if anyone else has any trouble or if they have a fix for mobile phones not being able to download files.

So far the only one I have been able to test is android since that is what I have. Someone posted on our site about android not working and I confirmed it with my phone. We basically only have pdf files and I have the mime type set to: application/pdf. When you click the download button it shows it is saving but it is a copy of the web page and named download.php.
