I now have it completed and working. But I magically broke my website and either need to fix it without ftp or go somewhere I can access the FTP lol.

In the meantime, looking to setup a test board which will display this MOD. Kinda proud of this one :)

The Download Manager is now on version 1.1.0. Here is a list of changes:

New Features:
  • Have Sub-categories under other categories for better organisation.
Changes:
  • To match the sub-category feature, the breadcrumb links have been modified slightly to make them display the full trail.
  • Minor bug fix when deleting files.

Please update and continue to enjoy :)

Once I work out how to actually do Extensions then yes I plan on porting this to 3.1.

This is set in your php.ini settings file. If you have hosting, it's set by your hosting provider if you don't have access to it yourself.

This is a common error if a file/directory isn't writeable. I'll write a fix tonight to chmod the file so it should work after that. Curious I don't get this on my hosting tough.

The current code only allows for upload of "zip" "rar" and "exe" files. I'll add an update that will accept any.

How patient are you cause extensions are giving me headaches? I actually started another MOD to take a break (and completely forgot to fix this so making notes now to do it when i get home)

Ha, I'm very patient don't worry.

My forum is fairly new and is only to track development of a small game I'm making so I decided to go with 3.1 and play around with what extensions work etc. and take it from there. If it takes another year for a good list of extensions to be available, then it takes a year!

There are a couple of extensions I'd like to see sooner than later (Topic Cement and Update Forum Statistics for example) but I think that's because I have a very specific way of running parts of a forum - so far there's been little interest in these but I've been considering trying to convert them myself.

Just released an update on my site which will now chmod the files after upload.

It will now also accept the following extensions until I can code a workaround to accept anything:
zip
rar
exe
gz (tar.gz)
pdf
txt
doc
xls

When you updated, did you do the full uninstall (going to install_rayth_dlm.php) thing? The uninstall via automod and the install page doesn't remove any existing files, this has to be done manually via the files on the downloads section in ACP.

For the record, you wouldn't have had to completely uninstall it, just upload and update.
