Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files  

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.

Top Contributors

I have a few members listed as Top Contributors with 0 files.
The plugin is brand new. They haven't contributed anything.
Where do their names come from?

Yes, just overwrite all the old files with the new ones in the upload folder. Then import the new product XML to your product section in the AdminCP (and turn the overwrite option on while importing).

It's because there's no limit at the moment and so it just gets the first x members it can get from the users table (with the highest upload counter, but in the beginning that's all 0). It gets fixed while you are adding files and there are real uploaders. You can change the amount of top contributors in the AdminCP (DownloadsII settings).

Just use the usergroup permissions and put them in another usergroup. That's it

That's because of the default upload limit of PHP.

You need to create a file named .htaccess (note the period in front of the name). Put the following two lines into the file:


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

Upload the file into your forum directory (the same location where downloads.php is located.)

This will increase the size of the file you can upload to 30MB.

Hello i have downloaded and installed this mod and is working perfect. Am also getting a good response by my members because of such a nice tool added to forum. I am having a little problem while integrating google adsense in my software download section. I have selected to show ads after the first post in the thread but when i do a post (post the description and link of software) in the download section then no ads are displayed there after my post.

Can you please tell me how can i display ads after every first post in the download mod.

Thanks

It's the basic MEMBERINFO template that every vBulletin has by default.

DownloadsII comments hasn't got anything to do with forum posts and the DownloadsII code isn't listening to such a first post setting from another mod we don't know

DownloadsII is fully templated, so you can add Google AdSense code pretty easily. The comment bit template is downloads_file_comment. At the end of the template code of downloads_file_comment, you can add for example:

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

so it will display your AdSense code after the first comment.

Nice to hear, but I suggest you to upgrade to vB 3.6.8 PL2 for security reasons

In the first step you uploaded the content of the upload folder (not the folder itself) to your vBulletin forums directory.

So downloads.php is uploaded to the same folder where you can find index.php, forumdisplay.php, showthread.php and the other vBulletin root files. The upload folder also contais a downloads folder (with an index.html in it), so after uploading all the content the downloads folder is standing next to for example the vBulletin includes folder on your FTP.

Step 3: You just give that downloads folder a chmod to 777 permissions (right click on it in your FTP program, choose for chmod, "file permissions", "file properties", or something like that and give the folder the 777 permissions).

You can't access the downloads folder, you need to access downloads.php in your browser

Like for example http://www.yoursite.com/forums/downloads.php (if you have vBulletin installed in a directory called forums)

Btw: click install to receive future update notifications.
