Installed but I don't have any way to upload files.

Set all admin usergroup permissions to yes but the "Manage Categories" and "Import Files" links don't show on the downloads page.

What have I done wrong?

Added myself to the SA group and now I can create categories from the adminCP but I get an "A required field called extensiongroups is missing or has an invalid value." error when I try and create a new category.

Those features are Pro-only in the front-end.

Create some extensions, add them to extension groups, then try creating the categories again

I'm not sure why but when I upload a file the file just doesn't display. It simply stopped working.

Also, older files have disappeared. Just vanished. I don't know why.

I updated to the newest version and still can't upload anything. The upload process goes through but the file just doesn't show up.

I don't know why I am getting this Default Style for the vBDownloads Sidebar, and I tried to update or maybe fix the template manually. Could this be a bug? As this theme style supposed to match up with my current custom theme style.
you have got to edit dbtech_downloads.css below

/****
* Content/Sidebar CSS
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
*/

had the problem with all darker styles.

Im afraid to ask. (Afraid because I see myself translating the whole thing )

But is there a translation to German language? (at least for the frontend)

Hehe...I right now (just a minute ago) registered (same username) to your website as I thought "hey, they got a website...maybe they have translations there"

And there I've found it (saves my evening...its such a pain to use vB's backend to translate phrases )

But thank you anyway for such a quick reply...didn't expect it...great support

But I have an issue/bug.

It does not show me the extensions categories and file extensions in the backend.

It shows me just nothing. I have two categories (standard "files" and my own). But as you can see...there is nothing visible.

So now I have no idea which extensions are pre-defined and which I need to add.

Edit2: Lol....ok got it. One need to add at least one file extension. (I did add a category...but as it didn't shows up - I did not add an extension) After that - it shows everything.

I feel a bit stupid.

I imported downloads from DownloadsII.

It mixed the main and sub categories. Some former main categories are now sub categories.

I can't see any way to change that. The only way I see is delete all sub categories and make new ones.
But then I see no way to make new sub categories. I have only main categories (unless I manage to make sub categories.

As I guess this is a simple feature which every simple download addon should have - and the fact that it made some sub categories already - Im just blind...
