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.

It's all described in the included Readme-Install.txt
But in fact it's even easier as there aren't any usergroup or setting changes. In fact you just need to upload and overwrite all existing PHP files and import the new product (with the overwrite option set to Yes).

If you really want to be sure, you can disable DownloadsII with the settings for more security (avoiding table corruption). But it's really secure, you can't delete your database with it (except when you click the uninstall button).

Not me, I've just updated and all went just fine.

However I've got a question now. Can users also see and use the "Category tree"?

Before it had a nicer layout, and now some information is added which I don't like my users to view:
Dreambox [Category ID is 2]
Why is that Category ID put there? My users don't need to know that.

Furthermore the Category tree is all lined up left-sided.
For example:
Dreambox
-firmware
-settings
-tools

It would look a lot nicer if subcategory's would jump in a little bit, for example
Dreambox
-firmware
-settings
-tools
Is that possible? Ofcourse whithout the white space between Dreambox (so Category) and the subcategory. The indent caused that in this message.

Hmm, the category tree wasn't changed in version 5.0.5, really

All users who can access DownloadsII (can view files), can view the category tree. The category id info between brackets is only shown to users with "Can edit all files" permissions.

The layout change you suggest isn't possible without changing the PHP code as it's using the construct_select_array() function, which is also used for the category select dropdown menus.

Ah oke, I thought it had a different look before. I must have been mistaken.

The category id info between brackets is only shown to users with "Can edit all files" permissions.
Thanks, my worry's are gone then, I thought all users could see that.

But... what's the benefit of displaying the category id to the users with the edit permissions?

Thumbs up

Hello and thank you for this great hack!

I've just updated from the previous version and after uploading 'test' files and on the redirect I receive the following error:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '<' in /home/XXXXX/XXXXX/forums/downloads.php(1179) : eval()'d code on line 1

The 'test' files upload just fine but would like to fix the error message.

Your help is appreciated.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Is it possible that you modified some of the DownloadsII templates and/or the downloads.php file?
I tried changing the display tops on all pages to both yes and no, and neither worked. My friend uploaded it for me, but I doubt that he did. I'll ask him though.
