If I set a download allowance for the Unregistered user group, will that apply to ALL unregistered users. Or will each unregistered user get their own allowance?

For example, if I set a daily limit of 100Mb and one unregistered user downloads a 100Mb file, will the next unregistered user be able to download?

Thanks in advance!
If everything is working correctly (which I hope is true ), allowances for registered users apply to the username but allowances for unregistered users to the IP address. So, one unregistered user will not affect another unless they happen to be using the same computer/accidently share the same IP address.

A side effect is that unregistered users can get themselves a new allowance by going to a new computer, but we felt this was an acceptable compromise. (The other side effect, which is that registered users can get a new allowance by signing up for multiple accounts, can be partially prevented by selecting the 'Count all accesses from user's IP address against that user's allowances' box on the allowances admin page.)

That's great news. Thank you very much for the fast response.

I must say your documentation is incredibly detailed and has answered all my questions apart from this one.

Thanks again!

Those allowances apply 100mb per IP address, not just for one unregistered user.

I *hope* to do so . I have bought licences for the new forum + CMs software and am currently trying to get me head around how things work. The upgrade will probably not be a very quick process, however - quite important bits of the infrastructure have changed.

Is it possible to add some sort of hard coded limitation on download speed to the downloads perhaps by using fread() - I dont mind modifying a couple of lines of code and slowing things down for all users if I have to however I host massive files and it would be an ideal situation to be able to slow everyone to 300kps tops during peak. I don't know much about coding sadly however my guess is that if the amount for speed is set as a variable X then fread's speed beinf that variable that was set means the speed can be changed on the fly by just either changing a config file or an entry in the relevant download file itself.

Anyway - my question really should be, how do I do this, where do I put it and thanks

Edit, bonus question - is there also way to display the last 50 people who downloaded and what it is that they downloaded - then I could have that on the front page of the download system.

The first of these should be possible, but I will have to investigate. LDM uses two different ways of transferring downloads to the user - normally using the so-called cURL library, and alternatively using fread() calls. Although cURL itself will handle speed limits, this is not made available via the php interface, so it will be necessary to go the fread() approach.

The answer to the second question is again, 'yes'. This should be a fairly straightforward piece of coding. I will investigate.

They didn't give you a free copy!!! After all your hard work and all the customer that you got for them. I personally bought vB just for your hack and I may be willing to upgrade only if it possible to make LDM work with vB 4.0.

Thanks again for LDM AndrewD and I hope you are feeling better now.

I'm getting a lot of these errors:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Do you have any idea what could cause this?

I can see that there's an obvious problem with the SQL - characters that should be commas are being transferred as %2C, which is the html escape sequence for commas. I've no idea why that should be. It looks like you are doing a search which is restricted to certain categories - I can't reproduce your problem.

Which version of LDM are you using and exactly what is the command which is triggering the error?

I'm not sure what command is triggering the error. How can I find out?

I've uploaded a new version of LDM - see http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...&postcount=163

Please let me know if this resolves the problem.
