Trying it at once to see how it works, finally a download mod :)

Just this question for now: any chance to see a subsilver version soon?

EDIT: a quick edit to let you know that the mod has been installed and it's working correctly. Tomorrow i'll post some suggestion to improve it (at least from my point of view) :)

Here are some comments: the mod is working correctly, i didn't encounter any error.
Just a few minor bugs: if i deactivate a userdefined field through ACP, it doesn't disappear when i click on a file (if it was filled when the file had been created).
Also, userdefined fields should be editable in a second time through ACP.
If a name in a description is too long (it may happen if it's an URL or if your resolution is low) the description field is a little bit distorted, as you can see here:
Image

There are some things that IMO need to be improved: when uploading a file, filedescription field is too limited (you can write only about 20 or 30 characters). You should make it bigger.

One subcategory isn't much: if possible subcategories levels should be infinite.

The graphic effect of the preview is wonderful, but maybe you should add more preview fields, to use them as screenshots for the files who need them. A nice screenshot field could be one with resized thumbnails, and when you click on them you'll get the full image with that great effect.

Another thing: i know you can hide them by deleting some lines of code, anyway it would be great if you could hide some unwanted fields (date, category or downloads, for example) directly through ACP, as you can do with userdefined fields by deactivating them.

As far as I saw there is no way to edit a file, once you upload it, except through ACP, right? Maybe you should create an "edit file" button, so that not only admin can edit descriptions or even update files which are outdated.

Last, it would be nice to be able to add icons near categories and/or files.

That's all for now, hope my suggestions are welcome :)

@moozer:
1. have you a link to filebase in your forum template?
2. do you get a message, that you are not allowed to see the filebase?
3. do you get no link where you can upload a file?

Try to add all rights to your group in ACP group permissions!

Is there or are there any plans about a conversion script from Pafiledb [DOWNLOAD MOD] 0.0.9d to this filebase?

yes, I planned to make a transformation script where you have to copy the folder of pafiledb mod in the filebase folder and transfer the db of pafiledb files to phpbb3 db and then I hope it can be converted ;)

when i am logged in I can see the created categories, so the permissions are set correctly.

but i see no link to the upload page.... Where should that link be?
