what about a phpBB3 patch for the download mod (Download Mod pafiledb with MX Addon v0.0.9d) for phpBB2 - many already use that one

Waaaaaaaaaao dude you did it :D thanks for making this :) I will be very active on this topic :P

Also if you can add an option to put url so that admin dont need to upload file via php but they do through FTP and then just indicates where it is and file get show on the download page ;).

Also there should be ability to add a download to a message; maybe by a bbcode with download ID.

There should be also leech protection.

If you use pafile add on , please consider useing the latest version of pafile ;) which is 3.6 now.

Thats all for now :P .

P.S : If you need a test forum i can put one online ;)

I try to make a patch, but first I have to wirte this Mod.
Also if you can add an option to put url so that admin dont need to upload file via php but they do through FTP and then just indicates where it is and file get show on the download page
Yes I have files with 1GB or higher for download, so I will add a option to link to a file that is uploaded by FTP.
Also there should be ability to add a download to a message; maybe by a bbcode with download ID.
This shuld be no problem with costum BB-Code on phpbb3

Nice mod! I cant wait for it to get to Alpha!
I have a recommendation for features, you can add on the ACP a Enable/Disable users upload option. I.E: Enable: Users can upload things. Disabled: They can't.

Would be even better if we could select which category we want our attachments to be viewable in, and the ones that do not have a category (because they were uploaded before this mod was installed) have their own separate category.
