Released: 02 Jul 2006 Last Update: 25 Apr 2010 Downloads: 16067
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.

Thank you very much! I was waiting for the new version!

I've installed it, but I can't download the uploaded files:

The error message is:
Warnung: copy(): SAFE MODE Restriction in effect. The script whose uid is 1194 is not allowed to access /home/www/web224/html/forum/downloads/ec_Imx owned by uid 30 in /downloads.php (Zeile 504)

Warnung: copy(./downloads//ec_Imx/ecDownloadsII-1[1].0.3.zip): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /downloads.php (Zeile 504)

Warnung: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/www/web224/html/forum/includes/class_core.php:2984) in /downloads.php (Zeile 505)
How can I fix this?

I had this error with the old version 4.1. too.

Thank you very much.

That's probably because either the directory isn't chmodded to 777 or your php is compiled with safe mode on, ask your host if they want to change it. (they probably wont, because it's more secure in safe mode)

Is this a new install or an upgrade? Can you create categories and set usergroup permissions in admincp?

Either way, the first step is to delete downloads.php, includes/class_downloads.php, and the ecdownloads xml files in includes/xml. Download the product from here again and recopy the files to your server.

If you still can't get it to work, I'll need you to PM me more info about your site so I can look at it. Specifically, the site url, a vb admin login and password, and a login and password that will let me do ftp to the site.

the directory is already on 777.

admincp->Maintenance->View PHP Info. In the table "Configuration PHP Core" look for the line safe_mode.

You could ask your host to change httpd.conf
(They'll need to remove the line admin_php_flag safe_mode on)

Try using the downloads.php file that I've attached here. It may (or may not!) help. If you have ecDownloads Buddy installed, you will need to disable it to properly test this file.

i tried it, but still doesn't work.

Warnung: copy(): SAFE MODE Restriction in effect. The script whose uid is 1194 is not allowed to access /home/www/web224/html/forum/downloads/ec_y23 owned by uid 30 in /downloads.php (Zeile 505)

Warnung: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/www/web224/html/forum/includes/class_core.php:2984) in /downloads.php (Zeile 506)
is there another way?

thank you for your help.

I have been waiting for the other Downloads mod to come back.

What if I download this one, and the other download mod comes back with fixes and stuff?

From the page downloads.php?do=add&cat=, you fill in the requested information about the file then place the url to the file in the box that reads "Link to a File". You would leave "Upload a File" blank.
