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.

Looks like my hosting company (Midphase) set the max_download limit to 10mb and if I try to add the 2 lines in htaccess.php I get a 500 error. Not much else to do.

Anyone else use midphase as their hosting company that got this to work (on a shared plan)?

Your server is running safe mode. You MUST manually create a folder named ec_tmp under your downloads folder. Be sure to change the permissions to 777.: Currently Under Maintenance

You need to do like the message says. Under your downloads folder, create a folder named ec_tmp. Then, change the permissions to 777 (rwxrwxrwx). If you don't understand how to do that, ask your host for help.

also is itpossible to only grant a specific usergroup to only import files, since i haveuploader as usergroup and its really bothersome for our admin to import files one after another.... So cant you make a special access for only uploaded so theycan only import the files?

I just noticed that all my comment counts are out. I did the update counters, and now they are all saying 0 when there are heaps of comments in many of the downloads.

Edit the downloads_main_catbit template using the Styles & Templates part in your AdminCP.

You need to remove:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and also the two <br /> instances (white space between the name and image).

There's a "Can Avoid Moderation Queue" usergroup setting to get all files approved by default. There's also an Approve/Unapprove link on the top and the bottom of the file page (next to the edit, delete, ... button). If you don't see it, check the "Can Edit All Files" usergroup setting, which is necessary for these actions (or "Can Edit Own Files" when applicable).

Reupload all DownloadsII files to the forums folder on your ftp. You should have missed /includes/xml/cpnav_ecdownloads.xml which puts the Downloads admin part in your AdminCP.
