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.

You should be able to reach the manage files section from within downloads.

The direct link should be like this:

I don't know any other solution until now.

It would be nice to have a VBA module designed to house the Download error message to prevent the entire site from breaking...

What do you mean by lost it? If you edited the template either revert it or compare to the original version to find out what you removed, otherwise you're likely trying to look at the page without the appropriate permissions to see the link.

Sure if you're willing to re-write a bunch of the code to update file paths.

What is "Update Counters" supposed to do? When I clicked it, it zero'ed out the number of files listed in each category. The files are still there, but the total says 0. How can I get the totals back?

I've had DownloadsII installed for a long time and am now enabling it because php 5.5 killed my postnuke Updownloads site. I recently bought the pro version of dragonbyte's vBDownloads and DownloadsII is still much better for me, for a lot of reasons.

Hope somebody might know edits I can make, I successfully changed the thumbnail sizes to 150 and have searched the forums. I'm running 3.8.9 because vbulletin lost over 3.7 GB's and 10 years of attachments due to a upgrade bug to 4.2.3 and some have suggested that I should just stay in 3.8.9 due to it's flexibility.

All of my downloads have a screenshot and thumbnail attached and I love how this program actually has a link in the category view for thumbnails (unlike vBDownloads Pro), it's a direct download link but I'd also like to add a link to the full size screenshot from the category view. It seems weird to click on a thumbnail and not get the big image but keeping a direct download link in the category view is very important when you have a lot of downloads.

On the details page when you click on the thumbnail, the full sized image is opened in the same window and users have to go back, I'd like this link to open in a new window or tab.

I've searched but received mixed results, Is there anyway to add the image or screenshot at the same time as uploading the file? This would save me and my users hundreds of hours if it's possible.

I have a user who claims some of the files he has uploaded are missing. Is there any way for another user to remove/delete a download file? I though only the admin can do that. In the Usergroup section for DownloadsII Permissions, there is no option to allow users to delete files.... Any ideas what could be happening here?

So, it appears that the only moderator powers that can be used are Manage files, which allows a moderator to pin/unpin, approve/unapprove a file.

So, who can actually delete a file???

There are 4 usergroup permission settings that might apply and have been set incorrectly. They are in the DownloadsII Permissions section and are the right near the bottom:
  1. Can Edit Own Files
  2. Can Edit All Files
  3. Can Delete Own Files
  4. Can Delete All Files

Either of the first or third would let a user edit/remove their own files, while the second or fourth would let another user edit/remove another user's files.

Thanks, squidsk, for the reply, Hmm.... mine version does not have
  1. Can Delete Own Files
  2. Can Delete All Files

My options in the Usergroup Manager are
  • Can View Files
  • Can Download Files
  • Can Rate Files
  • Can Comment on Files
  • Can Manage Own Comments
  • Can Manage All Comments
  • Can Upload Images
  • Can Link to Files
  • Can Upload Files
  • Can Avoid Moderation Queue
  • Can Manage Moderation Queue
  • Can Edit Own Files
  • Can Edit All Files
  • Can View Disabled Download Section

Maybe I have an old version??


I learned that the Edit All Files allows the member to delete them, as well as stick and approve.

Do you know if the file in the Downloads folder is actually deleted when a file is "deleted", or does it merely delete the page, but leave the file orphaned?

Sorry those are from the vb4 version of the mod, I actually thought this was the vb4 thread when I answered.

As for if the file is actually deleted you'd just need to look in the folder for the name of the file as stored in the db, which depending on your settings, it may have a number prepended to the name.

Excellent, thanks!

I never understood why the number of the file in the downloads folder is not the same as the url on the downloads page....

I will probably have to add a test file, find it, delete the page and see if the file goes bye-bye.

thanks again for answering my dumb questions. We will probably move to the vBDownloads mod, since it appears to be actively supported.

The number in the file name is a version number, though I'm not entirely sure how that version number is generated.
