There is none of these options in admincp/DownloadsII Options "or" admincp/settings/options/DownloadsII - Create Threads ?

I may be going blind or overlooking something but don't think so...

Thanks Guys,
Can anyone answer this please?

Like to try this mod out again.

Thanks,

It's a separate AdminCP menu at the left side.

If you don't see it, you didn't upload all files from the upload folder. It's controlled by /includes/xml/cpnav_dl2_thread.xml

What pages? This mod isn't adding any pages (except in the AdminCP). It's only using vB's forum threads and DownloadsII itself.
Any screenshots of it?

Did you set the usergroup permissions correctly?

Is there a way to stop users from uploading in top level category? For example I have:

Main-category
Sub-category
Sub-category
Other-category

Is there a way to avoid members from posting in the Main-category and only be able to post in the sub categories?

Any chance to create new post in existing thread instead creating new thread for each new uploaded file?

This plugin does not work for me on 4.0.6. I set it properly, I left it -1 to post in a thread that all users have access to post in. But it does nothing when new downloads are added. I set it to add the new threads globally to the forum I selected. I don't think this plugin works at all.

Also, how can this be set to work so that if the user edits their file it makes a new post in that same thread. Would be great for users who want to know when a particular download has been updated. Especially if you don't plan on updating your plugin anytime soon.
