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.

My plan is to write an integration add-on module. The only hurdle is finding the time to do so. But, it's high on my list for December.

I have a request, I hope its not too big of a request.

I am wanting to display the latest downloads (exactly like the vbadanced addon) but on a non vb page. I have the page integrated slightly with vb, as it recognizes users, and uses the global.php but I am not sure how to go about getting it to work on a non vb page.

If you could throw something together or give me some advice, that would be great.

Thanks.

Place this in your forums directory. The code will give you an example of what you need to do.

You can add multiple images to any download. The dimension of the thumbnail is hardcoded to be (I think!) 100px with the height adjusting proportionally. In the next release, I'm going to add that as a variable in the admincp. If you want to manually change the width of the thumbnails now, see this post: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...th#post1104760

Thanks, that will help alot.

Just a few questions, I have been removing bits of the code, to make it easier when I get ready to port it to the non vb page.

However I noticed the top contributers were not working, so I decided to remove that part, however i'm left with the template around it, but what would the best way to go about removing the template, and incorporating my own design. Because I tried to remove a template part, and the whole page went white with nothing on the page or I removed it and I couldnt see any of the text or info I needed.


I have been trying to remove everything that I will not need, so i'm trying to be left with just the latest files and Most Popular Files and nothing else on the page.

This is as far as I have got, (i'll upload the file as well) http://www.gamerzneeds.net/forums/downloads_tops.php

If you could help me try and remove those last few things, or give me some advice, that would be really good.

Thanks.

Make sure you have the trailing slash after your absolute path. If that still doesn't work, can you post more details? What is the OS? Is safe mode on?

Sorry - no preview option.

I'm not really sure what you mean. I haven't really looked at zoints seo. Zoints seo shouldn't break DownloadsII if that's what you mean but I haven't done any testing.
