Limit Attachment Downloads



The writing of this hack was originally sponsored by: sama3y.net

About this hack:
This hack allows you to limit the number of attachments users can download during a given time period.

This hack is pretty flexible right now. You can choose how many attachments a user can download in a give time. That given time can be set to an hour, a day, a week, a month, 3 months, 6 months, or a year. You also set which attachment types get counted for this hack. Also, you set which usergroups get affected by this hack and how many downloads each usergoup can make.

If a user tries downloading past their limit, they will get an error message. This error message includes when they will be able to start downloading again.

Also, there is a cron job to remove from the table that this hack creates, all the rows that are past the limit date so your table doesn't grow forever and saves you space.

Is there any way of getting this to work when attachments are inserted 'inline'?

As long as you set to count TXT files. You have to go into the attachment extension setting and make it count that extension.

In the message editor environment there are the font bbcode buttons etcetera, to the right of the smilie selector there is a paperclip, by clicking that we can place attachments in-line of text rather than having attachments show at the base of a post.

Normal attachments:

text text text text

attachment

In-line attachment:

text text attachment text text

Thank you Abe1, I did wonder because the downloads were not getting restricted, but then it dawned on me to edit attachment permissions for .zip files, now it's working perfectly. We've been getting hit really hard by what can only be unsavoury members handing out their passwords and non-members downloading through their accounts, this will help to curb this behaviour.

Thank you very much, you are wonderful.

Alice x

Nominated and rated excellent.

I did noticed one thing you need to be careful with, make sure the limited user group is not added as a second group.

example:
I set registered users to Limited Attachments, and No one else is limited, but if I add registered member For VIP group,mod group, Premium group etc. then they are limited also. So you can not have registered member (in my case) for a group you don't want limited. My Son has registered Members and added a registered2 group for the abusers and he just moves them to that group and they are limited. It is Important to go to permissions, user-groups and options ---> limited Attachments and configure the way you want. It was a bit confusing at 1st, but after a few trial and errors, I got it all straightened out. Hope that helps what to check for when things get confusing.

Hope this helps someone.
