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.

This mod will continue to use the same database and product info as Ron1n's original mod. He's had about 4 weeks to correct a coding problem that took 5 minutes to fix. I've repeatedly tried to contact him without success. My guess is that real life has gotten the better of him for awhile. If he reappears and updates his mod, you'll have the choice which one to use!

Sometime down the road, I may make this mod use different tables and install as a separate mod but for now the focus is on getting a secure version to ecDownload users.

thank you for your help.
Add see if you host will turn safe mode off. Otherwise, I can think of one more option for you put it would be custom and I can't do it until later in the week.

Give this a try:
  1. Change the permission on the downloads folder to 2777. (From your forums directory execute the command: chmod 2777 downloads)
  2. Upload the attached downloads.php file.

NOTE: for this to work safe_mode_gid must be set to yes (on).

Cool! If you click on "Manage Files", that should rebuild your counters.

LOL ... I can't right now because my laptop crashed and I don't currently have access to the old version of downloads.php. Just upload the new version as downloads-new.php or something like that and do a diff on them.

Ah I hadn't noticed that. Thanks for your time & effort, greatly appreciated.

If you want to be sure to keep your changes, getting something like beyond compare is a good idea. Once we give everyone a chance to get this secure version installed, the changes will be big and I won't post this kind of info.

For now, here they are from Ron1n's last version. I realized I didn't really need his file.

I think there were two. Shame that vb.org can't let us see the dag-gone posts without the mod being downloadable. I will dig through it again and will have to get back to you. Might take a while as I have to sift through a desk full of papers in the hopes my wife did not throw it away!
