vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (209 votes - 4.80 average) Installs: 2111
Released: 02 Jul 2006 Last Update: 25 Apr 2010 Downloads: 16145
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 creating downloads dir under my forum dir. What should I put in the Download URL field to move it to /public_html/downloads? Also it will work if I rename the downloads dir to something else and put the value in Download URL field? Also I did set the permissions but am not able to see any download section anywhere. Where do it appear may I know?

Not sure what would be causing this errors, but here goes.


When I'm linking to a file, I'm entering the file size in bytes. I enter in 6,826,230. However, once I submit and go look at the file, it doesn't show a size. Is there a character limit to this field?

Any ideas?

Does this pick up on all attached files or just ones used in the downloads section?

Is there a way to limit the downloads section to one file type?

Is there a way to not allow external link downloads?

Attachment showing Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

I'm having some difficulty uploading some attachments. Didn't really ever try to do this and did some moderations to the board and found I can't. Deleated the mods in hope to fix this issue but still have the same problem. Every time I try to upload certain file types, for example .zip or .mpg I then get

Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

( no error message or anything else..just straight to the page )

Although jpg seems to work fine. Any ideas on what this could be? I have double checked the MIME settings, set permissions for usergroups and while viewing other threads to troubleshoot myself I have attempted to run a upload dianostic which took me to the exact same page.

Not sure if there's some .php file that I can reupload from VB before I made changes. Any help is appreciated.

Version 3.6.7
Mods I Installed were Downloads II and Links and Download Manager
Tried with the hooks on and off.
In 'file suspect' diagnostics, doesn't report any customized files. Only thing different was

.includes
functions_forumlist.php (states: file does not contain expected contents)

As far as I know all users...since we really don't have too many users....just other Admin and I are using forum at this point in time.
Happens in Firefox as well.
All styles were always set to no parent.
Attachments are stored in database.

Tried working on all of these possible scenarios but still no luck and it only seems to be on new attachment files that we manually add or fix.

That would be a nice add-on -I think-, but personally I don't think it's something for the main release as it would require additional PHP classes. I think it's not that clean to include those for everyone, but it would be suitable for an add-on (you can get them opensource, but we haven't written them, so don't know them entirely).

I just did my last exam today, so now I've got three months of free time
So I'm restarting today with coding and answering support questions.

So it should match the number in that table right? or if its different still not make any problems?

2. Yes its on 0, and it shows some (-) time like -46 like stuff
1. It's not in the logs (dl_downloads) table (as you can prune the logs). You should edit the downloads field in the dl_files table.

2. Pretty strange, as it was solved in an older release and I didn't heard of any more problems with it
Try reuploading all PHP files of DownloadsII and reimporting the product file (with overwrite option on). And be sure you've got the 5.0.4 zip file and not an older one ...

Clicks Install.
1. How do you mean? I don't understand your question. The message editor is the default vBulletin one, so you just have to change its styles in the "Styles & Templates" AdminCP part. Or do you mean the large editor for the reply field for comments? This will be replaced by a small Quick Reply field in v6.

2. Edit the "ecdownloads_top_contributors" phrase to change the text.

At the moment, you can only specify a path starting from you forums directory. v6 will use an absolute path just like the vBulletin attachments filesystem storage system does. You can rename it if you want (rename it in the options AND the folder itself on your FTP), just keep sure it's chmodded to 777.
Read the Readme-Install.txt for instructions creating a link to the downloads section in your navigation bar. You can find DownloadsII on http://www.yoursite.com/forums/downloads.php

1. If your relative downloads path is pointing to there and you are uploading files (not linking them), they really should appear there. There can't be a secret folder
Try looking for an option to display hidden files maybe (.htaccess is sometimes hidden, but the files in the downloads folder aren't normally).

2. You can set this using the DownloadsII usergroup permissions: "Can Avoid Moderation Queue" (set it to yes).

3. Have a look at the DownloadsII settings in the AdminCP. Set the "Downloads Delay" option to 0.

You have to enter the size in bytes without any points, commas or other punctuation. So you should enter 6826230 in this case. The field is supporting 10 characters, so it should be enough for this.

1. It's a separate system, so it has nothing to do with the vBulletin attachments and it can't use them.

2. There a file types option to specify the allowed extensions.

3. You can control this using the usergroup permissions.

Hmm, this is not a DownloadsII related problem. DownloadsII doesn't change any files, it has nothing to do with the vBulletin attachments, it doesn't use any attachments related plugins, ... This is more a question for the vBulletin.com support team

Did it occur since you updated to vB 3.6.7? Or is it a new DownloadsII install on vB 3.6.7 or something else? He says that there's no usergroup table, but the usergroup table is a default vBulletin table ... Try editing a usergroup and just save it, so it rebuilds your bitfields if necessary.

Not at the moment; DownloadsII is a separate system. The vBulletin attachments system is also a bit more complicated: it saves files with the .attach extension and the real extension is stored in the database (if you use the filesystem option). So you can't use the DownloadsII mass import feature for this ...

We've been told about 1 month ago that there will be a quick release to address the thumbnail upload issue where only download author should have access to managing thumbnails. Is there an update anywhere around?

Then I should have made something bad. . .

I have followed these steps,

Upload the contents of 'upload' to your forum directory
Import product-downloads.xml into your products be going to Plugin System -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product
Change the permissions on the directory called 'downloads' making it writeable and executable (chmod 777)
(Note for advanced users: you also have the option to place the 'downloads' folder anywhere in your web server's path)
Go to your 'Usergroup Manager' and assign usergroups permissions
Go to the 'Settings' menu under 'Downloads' in your admincp and fill them out accordingly
Create directories in the 'Categories' menu under the 'Downloads' in your admincp
but the Downloads doesn't appear me C. P. as in the imgen
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/attac...8&d=1154030011

which could be my error
