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: Downloads (Dutch).
Though keep in mind that we are running a restyled and modified version of it.

Changelog (version 6.0.9)

  • 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 (but ignore the MySQL part as DownloadsII is only using the file system).

I have not modified any template.
I tried to disable all the other plugins, but the problem persists.
There is no way to remove files.

Will this mod work with vB 4.1.5?

(Just saw your demo website and see that it's running 4.1.5 so will assume the answer is "yes!")

@4play: works on mine!

Is it possible to not allow the upload of files to Parent Categories?
So that a Parent Category is only a category but no repository?

- Category1 = only Category, without upload/download
-- SubCat 1
-- SubCat 2
- Category2 = only Category, without upload/download
-- SubCat 1

Just curious. Can this mod be installed on just the VB forum? or does it have to be a vB Suite licence? I only have the forum licence and looking to install this, is that possible?

when you insert a preview image is there anyway that once u insert it, it can resize it.
example: if the image size is 800x600. when u press insert image it resizes it to 400x200?
thanks. that would be perfect for me.
