Ok, here is the FINAL RELEASE for the Cool Categories Layout Add-On for the Downloads System MOD. 

If you have installed this Add-On in prior versions, and want to install it with the updated features (Fixes Sortby method for Ratings, Adds how many people rated that particular download for the Cool Layout)

For users who have installed this Add-On previously, you can download the update here - COOL RATINGS

Otherwise, download is located at the bottom of this topic.

Read "How to Install.txt" for a step by step guide for you to install this add-on!

You can view the Cool Layout Addon in Action at:  Graphics Mayhem and at the Demo/Test Site

Read Notes carefully and follow instructions exactly as defined in the .txt file included in the package.  It's fairly simple to install.

Perhaps vbgamer45 will add it in the next release of this awesome MOD  ???

Some Info:  Fixed Ratings problem that was not sorting the Ratings, but sorting by how many users rated (Only fixed this for the Cool Layout option, didn't mess with how vbgamer45 had set it up in the Normal Layout).  FYI - The rating column is flawed.  Is not a reliable source of getting the average rating, so I created a new column called, "actual_rating" which relies on the totalratings and rating columns, but holds the actual average rating from 0 - 100.

Thanks, was a ton of fun creating this Add-On!!
Solomon

P.S. - If you use this Add-On, please post the url in here.  Just interested to see it in action someplace else.  Thank You! :)

Bug Found and FIXED ->  Found an error when editing Categories to a default sortby of Rating.  Fixed this, and re-upped!

SoLoGHoST

To vbgamer45:  Will you please include this Add-On in the Next update, or better yet, this version of Download System??

Sakae

I searched this topic but couldn't find it.

Is there anyway to integrate the download system search on the SMF default search?

I mean, if I look for "msn images" on boards, I could find (with some "highlight", maybe?) the images for MSN on download system, besides the topics about it.

Hi,
I have a problem.

I want to move my domain
www.overunity.com
from SMF 1.1.8 with Tinyportal to
SMF 2.0RC1 + PortaMX Portal  with the Download System Mod.

Now how can I get my more than 200 Downloads from
the TinyPortal download  into the
Download System Mod ?

Is there any easy conversion I could do or
must I do it all manually for more than 200 files ?

Many thanks.

Regards, Stefan.

P.S: File descriptions would not be so important , but just an
easy method to upload or move all the files from the Tinyportal
download system just to a Download System Mod system.
Many thanks in advance.

Would require a conversion script. Do not have one yet but it is planned down the road.

Go into Downloads2.template.php edit functions template_add_download and template_edit_download like so:

function template_add_download()
CUT:
 
  <tr class="windowbg2">
  <td align="right"><b>' . $txt['downloads_form_title'] . '</b>&nbsp;</td>
  <td><input type="text" name="title" size="50" /></td>
  </tr>



PASTE, AFTER:

  <tr class="windowbg2">
  <td align="right"><b>' . $txt['downloads_form_category'] . '</b>&nbsp;</td>
  <td><select name="cat">';

foreach ($context['downloads_cat'] as $i => $category)
{
echo '<option value="' . $category['ID_CAT']  . '" ' . (($cat == $category['ID_CAT']) ? ' selected="selected"' : '') .'>' . $category['title'] . '</option>';
}

echo '</select>
  </td>
  </tr>


function template_edit_download()

CUT:
 
  <tr class="windowbg2">
  <td align="right"><b>' . $txt['downloads_form_title'] . '</b>&nbsp;</td>
  <td><input type="text" name="title" size="50" value="' . $context['downloads_file']['title'] . '" /></td>
  </tr>


PASTE, AFTER:

  <tr class="windowbg2">
  <td align="right"><b>' . $txt['downloads_form_category'] . '</b>&nbsp;</td>
  <td><select name="cat">';

foreach ($context['downloads_cat'] as $i => $category)
{
echo '<option value="' . $category['ID_CAT']  . '" ' . (($context['downloads_file']['ID_CAT'] == $category['ID_CAT']) ? ' selected="selected"' : '') .'>' . $category['title'] . '</option>';
}


echo '</select>
  </td>
  </tr>


Upload files to server.  TADA!

vbgamer45, Just noticed that you have inserted id_topic column in {db_prefix}down_file which never gets used.  I have utilized this by adding a column called id_message and finishing what you started for the Boards (when Editing/Adding a Category for instance, under Posting Options), that is calling the modifyPost() function when editing downloads, thus keeping the board up-to-date with the correct information in the downloads section.  Since, according to what you have coded, the only time the topic is updated, if a board is selected, is when a user is adding a download to that category, and that's all.  So this fixes that, by updating all posts in the topics using id_topic & id_message in {db_prefix}down_file to match with id_topic and id_msg in {db_prefix}messages table, and using the modifyPost() function to update the topic.  Also, if you delete a Category that contains downloads, and that Category is linked to a board, all topics in that board should also be deleted, which I did.  I assume you intended to use id_topic for that purpose to begin with.

Well, I have really done a ton of work to your MOD, I mean everything from fixing warnings in the SMF Error Log, adding improvements - Such as the ability to upload Screenshots for each download, redesigning the layout, etc. etc. etc.  You name it!!  Been there, done that!! ;)

Don't get me wrong, overall, this is an excellent MOD you've created.  I'll post it up for you when it is completely done as I am still working on it.  Only thing left to do is make the Adding and Viewing of Comments way cooler, like a slide-in, slide-out effect, or just a drop down effect.

I completely apologize if this is the wrong section to be asking. 

How would I go about replacing the automatic file download link with a download button I have created?  I would love to know since I think that the current text display makes it hard for my visitors to find the download link (I was having a bit of hard time myself when I first installed it).  What code must I add to the downloads.template file for this to be a possibility?

OK.. You can try it

search
// Show the main download
echo '
<tr class="windowbg2">
<td align="center">';

echo '<a href="' . $scripturl . '?action=downloads;sa=downfile;id=', $context['downloads_file']['ID_FILE'], '">', ($context['downloads_file']['fileurl'] == '' ? $context['downloads_file']['orginalfilename'] : $txt['downloads_app_download']), '</a>';


replace
// Show the main download
echo '
<tr class="windowbg2">
<td align="center">';

echo '<br/><span style="font-size: 15px; color: RED;"><strong><a href="' . $scripturl . '?action=downloads;sa=downfile;id=', $context['downloads_file']['ID_FILE'], '"><div class="smallfont" align="center">
<a href="' . $scripturl . '?action=downloads;sa=downfile;id=', $context['downloads_file']['ID_FILE'], '"><img title=" Your Title" src="Your image link" alt="Text" border="0"></a> </div></a><strong>';


You only need to change
Your Titel  (whatever)
Your image link
Text (whatever)
