This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.5.2 Rating: (2 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 20
Released: 01 Jan 2006 Last Update: 01 Jan 2006 Downloads: 31
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Code Changes Additional Files Is in Beta Stage  

ecRelease is a BETA - stuff will go wrong

What is ecRelease?

It is a download database that integrates into vBulletin. It is very similar to the vBulletin.org download database (in concept) and can be found in action on www.elitecoders.org. It allows you to turn any thread in any forum into a release that will show up in the download section. Adding a release is similar to adding a poll.

Demo

overview - http://www.elitecoders.org/forum/showthread.php?p=69253
download database - http://www.elitecoders.org/forum/downloads.php
release thread - http://www.elitecoders.org/forum/showthread.php?p=67325

Known Bugs:

- Possible bug: When you submit, it wants to include a poll even though the poll is not checked
- Possible bug: MySQL error on attachment download

FAQ:

Q: Fatal error: Field releaseid is not defined in $validfields in class vb_datamanager_thread in /includes/class_dm.php on line 485
A: Perform the file edit via install.php or manually
Q: The drop down box for Release Categories is not a drop down
A: They should be separated by semicolons, not commas.

Here are my plans for future versions:

- Set "per forum" releases (depends on support)

Phrase Changes

(many are added automatically)

Template Changes

SHOWTHREAD
newpost
(many are added automatically)

File Changes

includes/class_dm_threadpost.php (can be done automatically or manually)

Install

Upload the contents of 'upload' to your forum directory
Import ecrelease.xml into your PRODUCTS by going to Plugin System -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product
Perform the edits in edits.txt (templates)
Upload install.php to perform the 1 file edit, make sure you chmod +writeable

Time: 3-4 minutes

Upgrade

You can make all changes automatically by importing the XML or you can do things piece by piece by looking at the info files provided with the hack.

Ron1n, hello.
Some questions my friend.
Is this is one saves files in DB? If not, can such an option to choose where to store files can be integrated? And finally, i saw the demo at EliteCoders.org, and I wonder whether the main page can be adjusted to look like more like a forum.

For example:
- Category 1
- Category 2
- Category 3

When you enter Category 1, (let's say /forum/downloads.php?cid=1), you may then see all files related to Category 1. And so on.


General question:
Is the download system used in vBulletin.org available for members?
:P

This makes use of the attachment system. It stores files in the db depending on whether your attachments are stored in the DB.

When you enter Category 1, (let's say /forum/downloads.php?cid=1), you may then see all files related to Category 1. And so on.
atm, no. maybe in the future i'll provide two ways to browse files. however, you may be more interested in my other mod, ecDownloads.

no.
Thank you.
Recently, an IT Company offered my members access to a conference material.
As i talked with them, we agreed to provide a download page where only registered members could access files. I tried paFileDB, can't integrated with vB. Then I found your system, and yes, I was pretty interested in ecDownloads. I asked in here (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...5&postcount=98) the same question (if files get stored in db or not, and if not, if there's any possibility for such a modification in the extension) but westpointer answered that files get stored in file system and "From a technical stand point, yes, one could do that. However, I don't believe Ron1n or I have any plans to rewrite the code to store the files in the db."

I have a server of 150 ΜB and in theory unlimited dbs.
So, my file system cannot manage 20-30 pdf files of 5 mb each one, and those are only from one conference! I was also thinking to provide a section with antivirus downloads, and that's now impossible.

My only way now, seems to be to find a way out for paFileDB.
I have seen it working with other vB forum, but this was version 3.0.x
And i use 3.5.2.
or.... to find more money for bigger file system.



Thank you my friend.

I don't if there's an option show first post in all pages of a thread.
If yes, this may work for you, too.

Thank you my friend.
So, does this mean you're all set? If you need something scripted there are tons of coders on these boards who could modify ecDownloads for you to meet your needs (for a fee).

it does... doesnt it?

yes, just dont upload downloads.php if you dont want it. i coded the entire thing and then went back and added the download directory.

I'll add those two bugs to my "to-do" list, they shouldnt be hard to sove.

When I click "edit release" it works fine... can you tell me what page you are linked to (please make sure it is the link for the thread you provided).
