vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (208 votes - 4.80 average) Installs: 2108
Released: 02 Jul 2006 Last Update: 25 Apr 2010 Downloads: 16070
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.

Probably yes, but there's nothing I can do at the moment. I'm not an alpha, neither a beta tester.

Got a question...when I set Latest Additions, Most Contributors and all the other side modules to 0, the column disappears on the main downloads.php page but not on any category pages...is there a way to fix that ?

Also it seems with the side column doesn't have a fixed width or a wrap or anything like that, so if the file name is rather large it will push the entire table out to the side breaking the layout ( primarily the only reason why I set everything to 0 on the left bar ).

Thank you, great mod !

But what does this mean for people like myself that have a very active downloads area and also gonna install vb 4.0 suite ?

Is it likely that during an upgrade all downloads are corrupted or worse: lost?

6.0 version for this hack is only a modified version of v5.1 which involve star rating system according to me.

And there is another layout, I use Ajax scripts, and a lot graphics.

Okay I have a question I just can't figure out. Is there a way to import all the attachments I have on the board, prior to installing this Mod? Or do I have to do them 1 at a time.

You normally won't lose anything if you upgrade to vB4. The current DownloadsII version won't work (blank page or PHP errors), but the data won't be touched (unless you uninstall it).

Do you have the GD library for PHP installed? And which version if you do (needs to be 1.8 or later)?

Currently you can only upload to folders within the forums directory. Otherwise, you need to link the files.

No, it's separated from the attachments system at the moment. You can't import attachments (or you need to do it manually of course). For vB4 I'm probably trying to integrate it with the new asset manager.

Simply go to Admin CP > Usergroups > Usergroup Manager.

Press the "Edit" button in front of the desired usergroup and you will find various options regarding viewing, commenting and downloading of files.

Some files need to be downloadable by all, some just need to be downloadable by a certain usergroup

You can limit categories per usergroup at the usergroup permissions

Mod the Mod!

Hi Jelle and thank you for the nice hack, hanging around for the web I found this mod, that seems like downloadsII, but with the ability to host remotely the files.. it has in the ACP options to set up an ftp connection to host the files on another server and the option to retrive them from a given HTTP link.
This would solve one big problem in DownloadsII, the file size limitation that most of us have on their server when uploading files via HTTP, and the ability to host the vbulletin script on a fast and expensive server for taking care of mysql queries, page generation and all the rest, and use a cheap remote server with bigger hard drive space just as a file vault.
Are you interested in implenting it in the next version?
I dont know if I can post the file here, kindly let me know if I can send you the file via email.
Thank you for your time and keep up the good work!!
