vBDownloads: What is it?

DragonByte Technologies is proud to present vBDownloads v1.0, the most professional, innovative and feature-rich downloads mod to date.

vBDownloads aims to help you manage your forum's downloads in a fast and efficient way, presenting you with all the information you and your users need.

Why vBDownloads?
Whilst looking for a new product idea, we felt that there was a need for a fully-supported downloads database in vBulletin. vBDownloads is the result of this. vBDownloads contains many interesting features such as multi-file downloads, password-protected downloads and many more exciting and innovative features!

I don't know if you have this option built in to the pro version or not or have thought about it but what about the possibility of having on the fly watermarking? That way you can set which usergroups can have the files with or without watermarking but not have to have duplicate files?

Would also like to be able to watermark pdf's.

Just hoping someone can help please
If your downloads folder is located outside your public_html like db recommends then try:

./downloads for the path

If you intend to keep it in public_html then try:

./public_html/downloads

The first one worked for me.

Hope this helps

hmm, I think this would be rather beyond the scope of a downloads mod. It would require image editing tools etc, plus there would be a host of issues from watermarking as well (people wanting to adjust transparency, location etc).

If you know of a simple and easy way to accomplish add ign watermarks to pdfs or editing image files with them etc using JS or PHP please do enlighten us though and we will try to add it.

Run the following queries.

Then delete the files in your downloads folder.

I can't think of anything in the mod that would cause this to break. Let me install a new language and test it for myself.

Question

Can this mod or the pro version work with secondary usergroups?

We like to keep everybody as registered users and then add additional access to forums through additional usergroups but DownloadsII doesn't work with this and it's causing major headaches for us.

Regards, Jeff.

Although this mod looks very tempting, it doesn't seem to have thumbnails for the download threads. If this could be added, I would definitely buy the pro version.

This is actually very easy to add yourself. I will have this included by default in the next release.

Thread started? Do you mean for every download?
