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.

Same here...dangit. I've been working on this problem for like two days now. I thought it was solved but I can't post anything over 10MBs in size! I've added security tokens to every input in the addit template, configured my PHP .ini properly...gah!

Any help?

I'm still receiving an upload error...I've tried zip, rar...tgz, everything fails beyond a certain size. Any suggestions?

EDIT: This was an error with my php.ini file...uploads are fixed! Thanks! Great product!
what was the error?

Hi,

I'm trying to use that mod to provide a personal storage area for each members, managed by their moderators. That way, I can use it as corporate internal tool to store e.g. salary slip for each employees.

To do that, I have been thinking of the following.
- John is a member of group blue, with moderator Jack
- Pam is a member of group red, with moderator Sam

John pay slip will be located in <path to download folder>/blue/salary/john/
Pam pay slip will be located in <path to download folder>/red/salary/pam/
blue and red are actually the group name
salary is a category name
john and pam are username

Do you think this is feasible and which files should i look at modifying to do such a thing (dynamically generate the path)?

Thanks

Permissions

This is one BIG thread to read through.

Is there a way to show the main page, ie with the downloads categories showing to all usergroups, but when a category is clicked on, the permissions come into play, and the user cannot see the files list in that category.

I dont want to exclude people from seeing the categories, but i dont want them to see files in the categories, until i place them in a new usergroup.

Thanks in advanced.

All files probably, mostly downloads.php, but this isn't how DownloadsII is designed. It's a downloads manager, not a salary tool.

Thanks for the reply above, but that fix doesn't seem to work.

Maybe i need to explain a little better.

Everyone can see the downloads area homepage. Ie, category name with the cataegory icon beside it, although i still need to be able to hide a category in the homepage unless they are a subscriber in a new usergroup, as this allows now.

When unregistered, or regular members then click on the categories, they cannot see even the list of files. They then get the access error message.

Basically i need them to see the categories before getting the access error, and not before they see the category list.

Thankyou, and sorry for not explaining myself.

Question

Have installed the mod a while ago, it has been working perfectly for about 3 weeks with almost 800 downloads.

Since yesterday - all of a sudden - members started to report broken links to all files listed for download.
The error message: "ERROR: File not found."

Have checked the download directory, the files are physically on the server.

Re-uploading files is not the remedy - still the same error message.
Re-installed mod with overwrite - still the same error message.

Has anybody else experienced the same problem?
Any solutions?

Thanks

Great mod...I'm finding though that a lot of files are timing out during the upload. For instance I tried to upload an mp3 file...tries to upload for about 5 minutes and then times out. Is there any way to fix that?

I've installed this mod and all seems to be working fine except for one thing...no stats display on the ecDownload main page (i.e. latest files, most popular, top contributor). The module for each category appears to the left, but there is no data. On the other hand, if I click stats all of that information is viewable.

It's been a while since I've used this mod so I can't remember what appears in the middle of it's main page. Currently, mine only shows:

Any think they can shed some light on me towards this? Thanks in advance.

How can it display stats if you didn't add any files yet? There's no data
You need to start by adding categories in the AdminCP.

Thank you for the reply...
But hey, don't take this the wrong way - "I'm no IDIOT".

I've added quite a few files which is why I know that when I select "stats" it shows where my download section is so far when it comes to the content.

That's what I meant when I wrote:

This is what I see when I do click stats:

So, with that cleared up...is there any one that may have an idea that could help me to resolve this? Your help would be greatly appreciated.
