Mod Version: 6.0.9, by RS_Jelle (Coder) RS_Jelle is offline

vB Version: 4.0.4 Rating: (269 votes - 4.79 average) Installs: 1648

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).

EDIT

Just realized that inside my gallery the navbar link for the downloads was not working, maybe this is useful for any of you.

Open downloads2_navbar_link template and insert {vb:raw vboptions.bburl}/ before any downloads.php

Missing HTML in category description

I have the problem that I've used a lot of HTML formatting in my category descriptions with the version 5.05. Since you have eliminated this feature in the current version , I am not even able to add a carriage return in order to show a textual paragraph. Can you give me a hint how I could solve the problem?

Do you intend to add the HTML feature again in the future?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Regards

You have error type 1, that post you mention is about error type 2.
http://php.net/manual/en/features.fi...oad.errors.php
Value: 1; The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini.
Pretty much self explaining. You need to up it using a .htaccess or in your php.ini

It's not really a feature, more a deliberate decision. But it's easy to change if you want. Just open downloads.php and find and remove this line of code:

Dont know where the php.ini is nor do I know what to add to it, I know where the .htaccess file is but what do I add to it.

I tried this in the .htaccess after reading vb.org but didnt' work.

php_value memory_limit 30M

Thanks.

Unfortunately this does not help. The problem is still the same. Is there anything else which I have to change?

Thank you for your help.

I found out why it did not work. There is a second line which must be deleted:


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


Now it is working

Thank you for your hint.

Regards

Did it bring over all the images that L&D had as well as the zips? I don't care about the date or the download count to be honest, I just need a way to get everything from there to something that is being updated on a regular basis.

"Your limited downloading things is reached" (or like this I´m working with a German translation) although I as Admin have no limitations???
