Can I import my data from my 3.6.8 Links and Downloads Manager install into a new one?

Thanks
Yes, either with an LDM xml export/import, or simply by copying the relevant LDM database tables to the new database.

Is there anywhere that talks about the default values for "Controls on Which Usergroups can Access Features"? I am testing out this mod, and I have this problem where the administrator can play the files (mp3/video), but when a regular user does it, the first time it plays the file, but the 2nd time it disconnects the user.

When I look in the settings, it shows that an "unregistered" user tried to access the file. However, it was clearly a "registered user". Any ideas?

And is there any where that would show me the default settings for permissions in the LDM? This looks like a cool Mod, just having permission problems when testing it.

Are you using the windows media player jukebox and the Firefox browser? There's a strange problem with this combination - the Microsoft software makes two requests for the file, one time without sending the right cookies, so vbulletin/LDM thinks the request is coming from an unregistered user. I've not been able to get to the bottom of this.

It should appear in the linkbit. In the alpha release, only the standard linkbit displays the attribute value. Once you're satisfied with the layout, etc, I'll include it in all the linkbits.

Another bit of info (not sure if this is explained on the form) - items with negative display orders and items with "Hidden" content are only displayed to usergroups with *can_see_hidden* permission. Items with positive display orders are shown to all usergroups. Currently, all attributes are offered/displayed if created in all categories. In the final version of 2.2.9, it will be possible to show/hide attribute groups on a per-category basis, so that (e.g.) attributes relevant to mp3s are only requested and displayed in the relevant categories.

I installed the alpha on my test forum, but it used the tables for my live one, so I then updated the fiels on the love site.

How can I add a test site for LDM?

Thanks

I'm not sure I understand? Have you got vb36 and 37 running out of the same database?

LDM uses tables in the vb database which (at least by default) are all prefixed local_links. You can patch the includes/local_links_init.php to use a different prefix for these tables but they will be in the same database.

A test site? How about setting up a local server like XAMPP?

http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html

Then import your ldm to your local installation

Hi Andrew, here is the chinese translation for v.2.2.9 alpha.

It seems that you forgot to add 29 new phrases to the chinese product file. So I compared it with the english version and added them to the thranslation. Some old translations also have been modified. For I have not installed the new alpha version yet, So I'm not sure if I've translated all the new elements appropriately. I'll make it better when I get to use the new version.

Thanks very much - I appreciate this - I hadn't forgotten with the languages but we're still some way from the final features so I had only created the English phrases so far - I expect there will be some more to translate before this is done.
