Download System
Requirement: XThreads
Last Updated: 23 October 2011

With XThreads, we can create a download system. Here is a simple example to do that:

1. First, we will create a file upload for our download system:
Create a Custom Thread Fields with this settings:
  • Title: File Upload
  • Key: fupload
  • Description: Upload a file. You can choose uploading form your computer or from URL.
  • Applicable Forums: 'select a forum that we will apply the download system'
  • Input Field Type: File
  • Valid File Extensions: rar|zip
    Modify it as our needs.
  • Maximum File Size: 1048576
    Modify it as our needs. Like the title says, it is a maximum file size (in bytes) that can be uploaded.
  • Editable by / Required Field?: Everyone (Required)

    This Display Format will be replaced by Unviewable Value for not selected usergroup(s) in Viewable by Usergroups setting (new features in the newest version).
  • Display Format:

    HTML Code
    <form action="{URL}" method="post">
    <input type="submit" value="Download Now" />
    </form>

    To display the Display Format, later, we need put {$GLOBALS['threadfields']['fupload']['value']} variable into our template.

    With these additional settings, we can set which usergroup(s) can view the download link. And then we can set what will be displayed for the usergroup(s) which is not allowed to view the download link. Very very useful features. Thank you very much, Yumi Smile
    Skip this settings if we didn't want to add the permission for the file:

  • Viewable by Usergroups: 'Select usergroup(s) which is allowed to view the download link. CTRL + left click to select more than one usergroup'
  • Unviewable Value:
    This setting will be displayed if at least one usergroup selected in Viewable by Usergroups setting above.

    HTML Code
    <em>You don't have permission to download this file</em>

    The text above will replace the download link (in this example, we put it in Display Format) for usergroup(s) which is not selected in the Viewable by Usergroups setting.


2. Now, we will create a description for our download system:
Create a Custom Thread Fields with this settings:
  • Title: Description
  • Key: fdesc
  • Description: Give a short description about the file.
  • Applicable Forums: 'select the forum in point 1'
  • Input Field Type: Multiline Textbox
  • Maximum Text Length: 200
    Modify it as our needs. It is a maximum characters for the description.
  • Editable by / Required Field?: Everyone (Required)
  • Display Order: 2
    To display the Description, later, we need put {$GLOBALS['threadfields']['fdesc']} variable into our template.


3. Then, we will create a screenshot for our download system:
Create a Custom Thread Fields with this settings:
  • Title: Screenshot
  • Key: fscr
  • Description: Upload a screenshot
  • Applicable Forums: 'select the forum in point 1 or 2'
  • Input Field Type: File
  • Valid File Extensions: gif|png|jpg|jpeg
    Modify it as our needs.
  • Maximum File Size: 1048576
    Modify it as our needs. Like the title says, it is a maximum image file size (in bytes) that can be uploaded.
  • Editable by / Required Field?: Everyone (Required)
  • Display Order: 3
  • Only accept uploaded images: Yes
  • Image Thumbnail Generation: 320x240|640x480


4. Now, we will create categories for our download system:
Create a Custom Thread Fields with this settings:
  • Title: Category
  • Key: fcat
  • Description: Choose a category from the list
  • Applicable Forums: 'select the forum in point 1 or 2 or 3'
  • Input Field Type: Listbox
  • Field Input Height: 1
  • Values List:

    Code:
    Plugin
    Modification
    Theme

  • Editable by / Required Field?: Everyone (Required)
  • Display Order: 4
  • Allow Filtering: Yes
  • Formatting Map List:

    Code:
    Plugin{|}<a href="{$forumurl?}filtertf_fcat=Plugin"><span style="color: green;"><strong>Plugin</strong></span></a>
    Modification{|}<a href="{$forumurl?}filtertf_fcat=Modification"><span style="color: blue;"><strong>Modification</strong></span></a>
    Theme{|}<a href="{$forumurl?}filtertf_fcat=Theme"><span style="color: red;"><strong>Theme</strong></span></a>

    To display this formatting list, we need put {$GLOBALS['threadfields']['fcat']} variable later in our template.



5. Now, XThreads Options in Forum settings (the forum in the settings 1, 2, 3 and 4 above):
  • Template Prefix: dld_
  • Enable XThreads' Inline Forum Search: Yes
  • Override Threads Per Page: 5
    Modify it as our needs.

6. Create new templates in Global Template:
  • Template Name: dld_forumdisplay_threadlist
  • Template Content:

    We can add the download system in dld_postbit_first and dld_postbit_first_classic template if we want. But in this example, we add it in dld_showthread template.

  • Template Name: dld_forumdisplay_threads_sep
  • Template Content:

    HTML Code
    1
    2
    3
    4
    5
    6
    7
    8
    <table border="0" cellspacing="{$theme['borderwidth']}" cellpadding="{$theme['tablespace']}" class="tborder" style="clear: both;">
    	<tr>
    		<td class="thead" align="center">
    			<div><strong>Normal Downloads</strong></div>
    		</td>
    	</tr>
    </table>
    <br />

  • Template Name: dld_forumdisplay_sticky_sep
  • Template Content:

    HTML Code
    1
    2
    3
    4
    5
    6
    7
    8
    <table border="0" cellspacing="{$theme['borderwidth']}" cellpadding="{$theme['tablespace']}" class="tborder" style="clear: both;">
    	<tr>
    		<td class="thead" align="center">
    			<div><strong>Important Downloads</strong></div>
    		</td>
    	</tr>
    </table>
    <br />



Screenshots:
There is no change for the screenshots. All the EDIT above will get the same layout.

1. User create a download thread:

2. User view the post:

3. Thread List:

I'm sorry for my English Smile

RE: Download System
As usual, excellent work Rateu. Smile

I guess I probably should add some permissions ability for XThreads attachment downloads, though I never really got round to it.

RE: Download System
Thanks a lot Smile And yes permissions would be pretty nice, I can post a function for checking against primary and secondary group if you want so you don't have to write it and test it  Tongue

RE: Download System
The main idea was to have a lightweight script which doesn't load the MyBB core at all - the idea being that, used in an image gallery, you'd be calling the script like 18 times per page.
Maybe have a setting to enable loading the MyBB core or not, though I kinda want to shy away from adding settings with XThreads.
Thanks for the offer nonetheless Smile

RE: Download System
Great work, although I made many modifications to make it look like the download system here.

I'll post my modifications later if I have time.

RE: Download System
Well, I can report back with mixed success. I already had a downloads system on my site, so I used pieces of the download system by RateU and incorporated it into my existing system. I am really pleased with the results, except I am having a bit of a problem styling the HTML of the check boxes inside the upload post.

I can only display as a vertical list - when I try and change the orientaton all the check boxes and icons get jumbled

Can anyone help?

Thanks

Lee

RE: Download System
Your best bet for such a thing is to probably change the template of the newthread/editpost_first completely by removing the {$extra_threadfields} variable and manually putting in the input stuff...

RE: Download System
Hmm, I see. Well, HTML is not my strong point - so I will use a multi line text box - it will be clearer anyway - I have 16 icons and I dont know which is which Rofl .

I will report back, but my test is looking good. Smile

RE: Download System
A small thing I noticed - I was trying to get the screenshot to work, but could not get the image to show - just the url. After some time spent looking trying to work out what the problem might be I realised had changed the thumbnail size in the custom threads fields in Admin CP but the thumbsize is hardcoded into the HTML.

Just a pointer for other noobs like me who may be trying to get this to work. The thumbsizes in the HTML have to match the ones in the custom thread made in the Custom Threads in the Admin CP.
