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.

The category tree was a requested feature once. I also don't use

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

Your help is appreciated.
Hmm, on line 1179 there's a hook location. Which DownloadsII add-ons are you using?

We released version 5.0.5, try upgrading to that version first. Also try the "Update counters" feature, maybe that helps.
Have you set any of the "Number of "xxx" to Display" settings to 0 or made a typo there?

You need to specify a folder to import (multiple) files from. For example /home/zetaf/public_html/forums/uploads/3x3_eyes/ if it exists.
For adding one file, you better use the Add button on the public pages of the downloads section.

Where is your import directory located and what are you putting for the directory in admincp -> downloads -> import?

I would try re-uploading includes/xml/hooks_downloadsII.xml. Maybe it got corrupted when you first copied it to your server from the Downloads product zip file.

I think when you use the import function, you have to run "Update Counters" when the import is complete.

I'm not sure what you are saying here. The import will not add a folder. It simply copies files from a folder you select to your downloads folder and puts info in the database about each file. The invalid foreach means you have put in an incorrect import path or a path to a folder that has no files in it.

I think when the catergory id was added, we did so that admin's could easily see the cat id for setting group permissions for specific download categories. Like Jelle said, I don't think it's a feature used much, if any!

No, the pic shows it did not work. You should have the files listed that were imported. If you want to PM me access to your site (including ftp info) I'll check it out for you.

Your import path is incorrect. You have uploads parallel to forums so the correct path is /home/zetaf/public_html/uploads/3x3_eyes/

edit: I did a successful test to confirm: http://aznmedia.net/forums/downloads.php?do=file&id=260
