vB Version: 3.5.x Rating: (22 votes - 4.91 average) Installs: 337
Released: 26 Jun 2005 Last Update: 11 May 2006 Downloads: 438
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Additional Files  

LDM extends VBulletin to manage a library of documents, files and links to other web sites. Documents can be stored on your own web site, stored on your server separate from the web site, uploaded by your user community, or held somewhere else altogether. So you can use LDM to provide your user community with access to your own files and allow them to share files with each other.

12/08/06 - Versions that work with vb36 are available and supported in the VB36 thread. Version 2.2.1, which works with VB 3.5 but not with VB 3.6, remains available here.

Thanks to everyone who has helped with all the design, testing, etc.
Translations are provided (thanks dLutt and LeeWicked) into German, (thanks to Allan) into French, and (thanks to Hugo) into Spanish. Harry1951 has handled the Dutch translation.

Screenshots, Instructions and How to Install

Full details and instructions are available as a Wiki at http://www.eirma.org/wikis/index.php...nloads_Manager

LDM installs as a VBulletin product. There are no modifications required to standard VB code.

Basically - upload php files and run the installer through VB's Product installer. No changes needed to VB code. Remember to BACKUP YOUR DATABASE. By default, LDM prefixes its database tables 'local_'. Edit the configuration file, local_links_init.php, if you need/wish to change this.

LDM can handle an essentially unlimited number of categories and nested subcategories, and an unlimited number of entries (hyperlinks or downloadable files). Each entry can be placed in one or several categories. Categories can have styles. Descriptions and titles can optionally include BBcodes, smilies, images and html, giving the possibility to add images, colouring, etc. File types can be flagged using icons and individual entries can also have associated thumbnail images.

Standards templates are provided for libraries of links, files, documents, and photographs.

Users can offer comments and rate the links/downloads. Each user is allowed one rating and many comments per entry, and can freely edit these if they change their mind.

Permission to use specific features is established via the product's admin page, where the administrator specifies which usergroups can add and edit entries, comment and rate these entries, moderate, etc.

By default, all entries are visible to all users. You can restrict visibility/access to links and categories by using the permissions masks from your board's forums.

Moderation of new entries is available but turned off by default.

Users can report bad links to the relevant moderators/administrators.

Each user can flag links as his/her "Favourites".

Modules are provided for VBAdvanced.

Hooks are provided in suitable places in LDM and sample plugins are included in the release (see extras directory), for example to integrate with ID3 tags in mp3 files, for slideshows, to autocreate new threads in your forums, etc.

Plus much more.

Tradjick, please can you try this for size.

It is a plugin - vb admincp/plugin system/download and upload/import plugin definitions.

It patches showthread and catches redirects from LDM so that the navbar shows the original LDM breadcrumbs.

For it to work, you need to set up the links in the form showthread.php?t=nn&catid=mm or showthread.php?p=kkk&catid=mm. The first part (t= or p=) is the normal url to display the thread or post. catid=mm is the LDM category in which you have placed the entry.

If the parameter catid=mm is found, the navbar is rebuilt, otherwise everything is left as it was.

You can surely modify this plugin to work in other situations also.

Andrew, can you help me with the file path issues I am having? I wish I could use this to allow people to upload videos....

Also do you know a quick way to up the font size? I'm learning a lot with Vbulletin but can't figure this one out.. (it's all variables in the templates )

Thanks,

Sean

Sean, this is hard for me to help you with, unless I can get access to your server - can you at least PM me a username and password for your site with admin privs? - Can't guarantee, but...

However, you could have problems letting people uplaod videos. How large do you expect these to be? Uploading large files via http posts is not recommended.

Most of the LDM displays are constructed using the smallfont class. You can try altering the definition of smallfont (VB/admincp/styles and templates/style manager/main css). If you want to keep the changes limited to LDM, you can create a new style which you only use for LDM displays, and edit smallfont in that. Alternatively, you can edit the LDM templates to use another class (e.g. "specialfont") which you would define in the main css page.

Its working! Merci 1000 fois *installed on 2.0.6/

Just one thing: Would it be possible for the plugin to see inwhich category that the link has been clicked. Because most of mylinks have multiple categories, it can be confusing for the navigator if he sees a catogegory in the navbar that he s never been into.

I think this will be possible but not with the current 2.0.6 - it will need a small change to the code which will appear in the next upload.

Well i have a forum for people that use the paid subscription in the UserCP. So i try to set up a category and to select the Contributor forum as the "Parent Forum" To only give access to that category to contributors and administrators. However the Contributor forum just doesn't show up in the Parent Forum box.

The Parent Forum box is built using the same Vbulletin code that is used to create the forumjump menus. So the "add link" page that the user sees should include exactly the same forum choices as appear in the forumjump - i.e should depend on the forum and usergroup permission masks. Is there anything special about the protection masks you have applied to the Contributor forum? I haven't tried using paid subscriptions - does this use a different type of mask?

Hi Andrew, thank you for the fast reply.

Is there also a way to make it embedded for realplayer?

Regards

I think so, but offhand I don't know what the <OBJECT> statement looks like for real media.

for media player, it is as follows:

Hi,

When I add the object code for realplayer, it displays the windowsmediaplayer alongside with the realplayer. What I want is that it first checks the file, and if it's a realplayer file, it should launch realplayer, if not, then windows.

This what I had for the jukebox created by trafix:
