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

Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files  

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).

You need to add pdf as an extension, not .pdf
Look at the double dots in the list you post. DownloadsII adds the dot itself, so now it's doubled. Only rft seems to be ok in your list.

On vB3 version it was on the downloads.php page, granted, it was a text link.

I am also lissing the admin links too, IE: Edit, Approve, delete, etc.
Check your (primary) usergroup permissions and be sure you reverted all template modifications after updating DownloadsII.

About the DWNLOADS profile tab in member profile, I want to make it appear all time even the user didn't upload any file.

Which (if condition) should I remove ?

Hello Jelle RS

the MOD is still expanding?
Important I would find that you can upload multiple files to a download.
At 08/07/2010 Bunni U had ever been offered a multiple Uploader contribute. Unfortunately, it was probably not responding. My question to him whether he is with the addon available unfortunately, he has never answered.
I know that you all are doing in your spare time only and that too free of charge, for that I thank you again here explicitly.
My question would be whether you plan to install such a feature, and if so, approximately when. About an answer I would appreciate it.

Igel1

sorry for my english

I apologize for this. What happens if we have 4.0.3? We are currently have Links and Downloads Manager that was created by Andrew, who passed away. We don't want to upgrade vBulletin because there are some reports that the L&D stops working, and we need it working in order to move stuff from it to you. If we install the DownloadsII on 4.0.3. will it work enough for us to start importing over, with the expectation of upgrading to the most current version of vB as soon as the importing is done?

I was running it on 4.0.3 for awhile It will def. work fine for you till you can convert. Then upgrading to the latest version of VB shouldn't be a problem.

What Ophelia said.
This is most likely due to low settings in your php.ini file. Either you need to access it and change the values directly, have your host change them for you, or you can try to do a work around with a htaccess file. But you're looking for upload sizes and max execution times and set them to something ridiculous

I have a -400 downloads site and migrated it from LDM into DII. It works in a different way, but basically it does what you need.

Take your time to migrate and plan beforehand.

Was there code to migrate or did you do it all by hand? We have over 1,000 files right now.

unfortunately theres no L&D importer script, but DLII does have a mass import script. I'm using mine for mp3s, so they're fairly large files, if this is the case I would only do about 10 or 15 at a time. If smaller files should be able to import a larger amount.
