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.

I released a beta version of DownloadsII v6 for vBulletin 4: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=231427

Have a good look at the notices in the thread (database backup!) and give me some feedback on the upgrade
+ Click the install link, nominate it for the MOTM and give the thread a fair rating

How do you add a status section for every download like http://www.mpcdownloads.com/forums/d...stem/6583.html
or is it possible to add additional field?

@Jelle: On my forums an old error is suddenly showing up:
Your submission could not be processed because a security token was missing.

As far as I can see the templates are OK and security tokes settings are in there. The only thing I did was to upgrade vBA CMPS to 3.2.1 and upgraded vB from 3.8.4 pl1 to pl2.
Help please?

That's the error message my users usually get when they try to upload a file type that hasn't been allready approved. Could that be the issue?

Thanks for helping Triff, but unfortunately it isn't that issue. Only admins and supermods have upload rights on my forums.
In my case it's a file i'm trying to upload myself and it's extension is .rar, upload that numerous times. So it can't be a permissions or unapproved file types.

Is there a way so we can put in a megaupload link that lets users then click download and it opens the megaupload/rapidshare site where they can then enter their verification code as normal?

Basically, can we put URLs in the Link to File form with it not ending in a file extension?

Adding custom fields isn't possible at the moment.

You probably get it because it's a large file (so it's timing out and vB doesn't receive the token). Do you get it when you only link files?

You need to change PHP's upload limits for this (.htaccess or php.ini).

Yes, you can. There's no check on the link field.

I don't think this is the problem, because it's a file of 9 mb and normally I upload files of 16 mb
The php.ini is setup to 25 mb so that should not be the problem either.

I will check if the error also occur's when linking to files.

I've just seen the files of 16mb are linked too. Linking is ok, no problems there. So I think you indeed were correct with the assumption that it had to do with big file uploads.

However, it still says in php.ini:
file_uploads = On
upload_max_filesize = 25M
default_socket_timeout = 60

Is there another place where I can change something so bigger file uploads won't time-out? I've got all access on that server including root access.

What's your AdminCP home saying (PHP ... PHP Memory Limit)?

Just to be sure that those settings are actually working

Thanks Jelle, I think I got some idea's about where to look:
max_execution_time = 30 ; Maximum execution time of each script, in seconds
max_input_time = 60 ; Maximum amount of time each script may spend parsing request data
memory_limit = 16M ; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume

Seems the memory limit is oke for a 9 mb big file, but the max. execution time is limited to 30 secs, which might cause the upload to stop, correct?

In that case for security reasons (shared server with a lot of accounts) I can better leave this as it is now and upload the files by ftp and link to it.
