Limit Attachment Downloads

The writing of this hack was originally sponsored by:

About this hack:
This hack allows you to limit the number of attachments users can download during a given time period.

This hack is pretty flexible right now. You can choose how many attachments a user can download in a give time. That given time can be set to an hour, a day, a week, a month, 3 months, 6 months, or a year. You also set which attachment types get counted for this hack. Also, you set which usergroups get affected by this hack and how many downloads each usergoup can make.

If a user tries downloading past their limit, they will get an error message. This error message includes when they will be able to start downloading again.

Also, there is a cron job to remove from the table that this hack creates, all the rows that are past the limit date so your table doesn't grow forever and saves you space.

I'm allowing visitors to download attachments, but would like to limit their downloads with this awesome mod!
Yes, this is a really important thing, to be able to limit guests. I'd like them to be able to see image attachments, but not to be able to download any zip or rar files.

Other than that, really great mod!

Just wondering if this has been addressed, yet? I desperately need this mod but really need to be able to configure it for guests.

Thanks for the mod. I just marked it installed

Can you please tell me where all the settings are? Thus far I can only find this: Attachments -> Attachment Permissions -> click one of the types -> Limit Downloads with this Attachment Type, Yes or No.....

That's it. Where is the settings to set time frame and number of downloads per time frame?

============ Edit ============

I was able to find the other settings but this one I still couldn't find:

Can you please tell me where it is?

And is the download limit per attachment or across the entire forum?

For example, say I have 3 attachments for members to download: a1, a2, a3. I have set the download limit to be 1 per month. The user is then able to:

1. Perform 1 download per month, no matter which attachment. He or she must be a member for 3 months to download all 3 attachments.
2. Perform 1 download per attachment per month. This means he or she can download only once per attachment per month, but he or she can download all 3 attachments in just 1 month.

Which one of the above sayings is true?
We are excited to offer these databases for your website or application projects.
