Released: 02 Jul 2006 Last Update: 25 Apr 2010 Downloads: 16070
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.

Hi great Mod no issues but i had asked earlier page 225 if there was a way to see the status of a file being uploaded instead of it looking like the page has hung, there is the progress bar at the bottom of windows but this reaches the end and the file is still uploading. Is it working that way for everyone??? Other than that i'm happy with it thanks to the devs

I've been offline for a couple days, decided to try and tackle this again, and the data was updated. So problem fixed 'I guess". I'm just not sure as to why it took so long to update the information but it seems to be working now.

Just curious, has anyone else had an issue with delayed data updates in this mod?

No disrespect to the creator intended, I've actually been using this mod for a couple years...I just recently converted a portion of my site back to vB, hence the fresh install of this mod.

Thanks again to the creator...I love this app!

Another solution is to just download some file from download section, or just change little picture for one file you have uploaded.
That also rebuild counters...

Try adding a plugin to the forumhome_start hook location with this content:

(I didn't test it, but it should work normally.)
The plugin worked great thanks!

Can you give a list of variables we have available once class_downloads.php is hooked into forumhome?

I currently have:

{$dl->stats['files']}
{$dl->stats['downloads']}

working wonderfully. I tried to use: {$dl->stats['bandwidth']} but it seems the bandwidth variable is only used in downloads.php, in the do=stats function.

It would be great if someone could make a true forumhome stats vbulletin mini-product for DownloadsII so that we can display stats like:
  • total files
  • total categories
  • total diskspace used
  • total bandwidth
  • total contributors
  • etc.

I'd love to do it, but my vB plugin writing skills are not up to the task.

Also, I saw mention in earlier posts in this thread (some from over 1 year ago) that version 6 of DownloadsII was "coming soon". Any ETA on the release?

I'd love to donate by purchasing a branding free option, but it seems you said that you must wait till version 6 to offer that.

Thanks for a really awesome vB addon!

I'm getting an error :

Warning: copy(./downloads//ec_tmp/Filename.ext) [function.copy]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in [path]/downloads.php on line 704
ERROR: File not found.

I installed jFusion on my Joomla install to bridge the two applications and I noticed this error this morning, so I'm not sure if it caused it or not, but I thought I'd mention it. The files are actually above the ec_tmp directory, and are all prefixed with a 5 digit number for example : 53098-Filename.ext....how can I fix this error ?

I was able to fix the problem by simple deleting the /ec_temp directory in the downloads folder...weird.

So, the latest version of DownloadsII ver 5.0 vbAdvanced Add-On seems to be for vb 3.6.X
Is there any way to integrate this with VBAdvanced CMPS now since that one is no longer being updated?

I've tried installing it anyway just to see if it worked and all I get is blank module.

I installed this yesterday, then moved my forum [v.3.8.2] to a new host and now I've lost the "download" image from the download button, even though the .gif is in the images/buttons folder.

I did have to reinstall the plugin after some database issues after the server move.

Btw, it's a very nice addition to my forum, the members love it

So, any suggestions on how I can get the image back on the button guys?

TIA

You are probably using another style, which is using a different buttons folder. Just check the image source url

RS,

Can downloads restrict on a file level? Or just a folder level?
