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.

This mod is the very best mod I have ever seen, and should have been incorporated into vB right off.

One question: occasionally I have a member tell me he has not downloaded in more than a day or two, but still gets the Daily Download limit exceeded message. I'm not sure why that is happening.

The usergroup Registered members is set up like this:

This is the maximum MB that a user can upload. Set this to -1 for there to be NO limit. -1

This is the maximum MB that a user can download in one day. Set this to -1 for there to be NO limit. -1


This is the maximum number of files that a user can download in one day. Set this to -1 for there to be NO limit. 5

Use strict daily download limits. If set to "No", a user will only receive receive a download limit reached message if BOTH the MB and file per day limit are reached. If set to "Yes", exceeding either limit will trigger the download limit reached message. Yes

Download DELAY: Leave at -1 for this group to inheret the default value! If the user is in multiple groups that have the over-ride set above -1, the HIGHEST value will be the delay setting. -1



What do you think? Should I change the Download DELAY to something like 30 ?

You need to create a file named .htaccess (note the period in front of the name). Put the following two lines into the file:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Upload the file into your forum directory (the same location where downloads.php is located.)

This will increase the size of the file you can upload to 30MB.

Tried this. It gives me internal error messages when I try to upload files. Its the only thing in the .htaccess

Hi there,
I had ecdownloads 4.1 installed and moved to a new server (vServer). The forum ran just fine, however the download section was broken. I had used ecdownloads 4.1 and it gave me:

http://www.stonyroad.de/forum/downloads.php?do=cat&id=1
Fehler 330 (net::ERR_CONTENT_DECODING_FAILED): Unbekannter Fehler.


I then tried to use DownloadsII, which resulted in exactly the same issue. What can I look for? mySQL collation? PHP setting?

Tried with Opera, gives strange output. Before you moved to the new server, was GZip compression enabled in vBulletin? Also this seems to be a common issue on Chrome.

Try to disable GZip compression in Admin CP:
vBulletin Options > vBulletin Options > Cookies and HTTP Header Options > GZIP Compression Level
or, if you're using the german localization:
vBulletin-Einstellungen > vBulletin-Einstellungen > Cookies und HTTP-Header > HTML-Ausgabe mit GZIP komprimieren

Moved to New Host Got Error

I moved my site to a new host and have placed my VB in a sub-folder called: mmb. The site works fine but all the downloads give this error why I click the download button:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

All my downloads are still in the download folder.

Do I need to change the download url in the settings?

It is currently set to: ./downloads/

If anyone can help please.... THANKS!

Do you have the proper permissions, I believe it should be 777, set on the downloads folders?

It says the path is wrong or file can not be found. Do you put the downloads folder in /mmr/downloads too? And there is no forum content in the root directory (public_html) from the forum? Not using vbAdvanced or something?

Problem Solved!!!

UGGG FALSE ALARM!!! Problem Solved!!!

What the problem was: I am moving the site for a client and they did not provide me with the right backup of their downloads folder. So they were missing over 300 files! That is why it was not working and giving errors.

SUGGESTION: When a download file is missing (not in the downloads folder) it should NOT breaks the entire site. The site goes to a white screen loosing VB and VBA theme and just spits out the error message. Is there any way to fix that?

If it splits out the error message, there is a way to see the original filename. One problem to solve this is to download the file again and rename it to exactly what it was, or the other way is to "delete" it from the downloads database using the mananger.

I don't know any other solution until now.
