vBDownloads: What is it?

DragonByte Technologies is proud to present vBDownloads v1.0, the most professional, innovative and feature-rich downloads mod to date.

vBDownloads aims to help you manage your forum's downloads in a fast and efficient way, presenting you with all the information you and your users need.

Why vBDownloads?
Whilst looking for a new product idea, we felt that there was a need for a fully-supported downloads database in vBulletin. vBDownloads is the result of this. vBDownloads contains many interesting features such as multi-file downloads, password-protected downloads and many more exciting and innovative features!

I can't seem to find a way to set permissions to remove this from the menu NavBar. I have one user group who I wish not to see this option. Looked in the user group and can't find anything to limit view on navbar. Suggestions?

Bug!
When i upload a file but forgot some field as message, title or Download Name, i will get a error message like that "You are missing required fields". However after i fill all the missing fields and click upload again, i always get a message "current uploading". The status of uploading is always pending although i just upload a file with 50kb.

when I refesh this page and upload again without any missing fields, the uploading is very smooth.
i think that the upload button can't works after the error message displays

Do you not want them to be able to use it or just not see the nav link?

I am getting a blank page when clicking Upload File.

You can view it here: http://themacforum.net/forums/vbdown...upload&catid=1

Note I am using vB 4.1.12.


EDIT: Just for testing, I installed the plugin on my 4.2 test environment, configured everything, and it made forum.php go blank.

I just added 1.3.6 which should fix both these issues. Let me know if you still have any problems.
Thanks

I can't tell you because this new version seems to have broken my board. Apparently, disabling all plugins and products via the config doesn't disable this product, so now when I log into the ACP, it constantly refreshes, won't stop, and I cannot do anything.

It doesn't seem to be the mod causing this.

I am getting permission errors, I am the super administrator on my VB and states I cannot view the PHP file.

Is there any additional permissions I need to set other than the ones on the CP?

Does this let you include external downloads links like in DownloadsII? Instead of having the files uploaded on the site could you just put the link in it and would basically be the same thing but hosted externally.
