Developer Last Online: May 2016 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (208 votes - 4.80 average) Installs: 2108
Released: 02 Jul 2006 Last Update: 25 Apr 2010 Downloads: 16070
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.

Guys, installed on my board; works great. Thank you for sharing this mod with the community.

Also, I can't believe that you have supported this mod for so long without tearing your hair out. You give some stellar support and even give code to hack the mod (and people's boards) for free.

You're nutters and you should be charging money for this (or at least for support). You should also include some Paypal information in the mod text so that we can donate. I'm sure that some of the people that have installed are making money from their sites and they probably use this addon. It seems fair, to me, that you give them the opportunity to at least donate a piece of their pie.

Anyways, you guys rock.. and you're one hell of a lot nicer than I am.

Hi,

Is there a more advanced stats block made for this already? I am trying to incorporate the latest files stats on my home page which is templated in vbulletin. Adding $dpanel_latest_files just shows a single file name. I would like something more advanced like:


$Date: $Author - $Title
$Description

I've been trying to create a new function in class_downloads.php but that has proved harder than I expected.

Help, please

It's in beta development


@ALL: I've made a 5.1 version in the meantime. It contains the vB 3.7 integration.

DownloadsII 5.1.0 Changelog

!!! REQUIRES VBULLETIN 3.7.X !!!

Jelle
- Backported vB 3.7 integration from v6 beta (navbar button/search, profile stats/tab)
- Added HTTPS support for linked files
- Better calculation of the usergroup download restrictions
- Some other small code updates
I'm posting it here as it needs some basic testing (but I'm 99% sure of its stability). If you have any problems with it, just overwrite it with the old version.

LOVE YOU!

Since I got your attention - Whats the possibility of allowing for custom files for file info like: (I run a 3D model site: format, geometry, textures, materials, animated, etc).

Upgrade to 5.1.0 was smooth.

Had an issue with GARS but fixed it. Thank you!

Question

Will make me upgrade to 5.1 loose any of the old so far done settings, categories, permissions or downloads ? I would appreciate some help before I do something wrong.

Thank you in advance.

Wolfseye

P.S: Will 6.0 also work with the streaming principle which takes far too much CPU load with big files ?

That's not possible at the moment.

You won't loose any data: just upload the product XML with the overwrite option on (+ overwrite all FTP files).
NEVER uninstall-install it to upgrade: that's a reinstall and it will remove all data.

The download part of v6 is still unfinished. I'm not fully sure about it.

RS Jelle - Thanks for answering my above question. I did notice I typed "files" instead of fields as in "custom fields". Sorry if I confused you.

I do have another question - Is it possible to write a short script that could show the last five uploaded THUMBNAILS of files in a vbadvanced module? In other words I'd like to show the thumbnail of the file rather than the name or "text" of the latest upload. I do realize this is NOT in the current design, but I'm wondering if it's possible to code up something like that.

BTW - If your interested. Here's what I've done with your script: http://www.scifi-meshes.com/forums/downloads.php

Found an error which could be specific to me:

When you click the download button on the information page specific to a file it goes to this link: http://www.scifi-meshes.com/forums/d...id=XX&act=down and the message: ERROR: File not found. shows.

XX = the number assigned to the file. (ie. 27, 43, 18, etc).

Any ideas?

TEMP ACCOUNT:

user: downloads
pass: temppass

This is new after the upgrade?
If yes, is it solved when you put the old (5.0.8) downloads.php back on your FTP (only that file)?

No. I put the 5.0.8 file online over the updated one and no difference.

Also i did not change the downloads directory which is located at: /forums/downloads/

In the admincp for downloads it's set to ./downloads/

Then it's probably not caused by the upgrade. I checked it on another site and there were no download problems.
Did you have the problem already before the upgrade?

Check if your /downloads/ and /downloads/ec_tmp/ folders have a 777 chmod.

Seems to be working fine on my board Jelle. Thanks for the update. Is the addition of the navbar link hard coded into the PHP file? Where would I go to remove the navbar link? I didn't see anything in the plugins or in the Settings.
