What manual edits is asking to do in the package manager? Or where does it fail?

Hi vbgamer45:

I read at the beginning of the thread that if you are using a custom theme, then you cannot use the package system to install this mod.

I read that after an installation that showed successful, but didn't work.  There was no download page, no download buttons, it was as if the package had not been installed.

Therefore, my assumption is/was that it had to be done with manual edits.

that was for SMF 1.1.x
ate you using a language other than english
or do you have related errors in your error log

Why do you need to do a manual package installation?

I had thought that I had to do a manual install because I had a custom theme.  I read that in this thread.

VBGamer pointed out that the instructions were only for version 1.

So I re-attempted to install using the package manager, and it worked out just fine.

Thanks!

Yeah, no doubt.  I didn't even realize it was 10 years old.  The post came up in a search, and since it matched the problem I thought I was having, I just made an assumption.

It's all good now, though. :)

This is a great mod, it's very helpful, thanks!

I have a question:  Where on the server (directory) are the download files actually stored?

I see a folder called "downloads" in the forum root directory, but there are not files located in the folder.

I seem to be scratching my head, a bit blind to something that I figure is probably very obvious!

vbgamer45

They should be in the downloads folder by default or in a downloads subdirectory.

If not check your downloads path that is set in the downloads configuration.

Thanks.

It turns out I was staring right at the files.  Didn't dawn on me for awhile that the system assigned new file names. :)

vbgamer45

Yeah. I do that so it does not allow the files excute.

Makes perfect sense, I should have known better.

It is a really great mod, I hope that a ton of people need the pro version.  Thanks for taking the time to write it!

I can set up a board that guests can't see, filled with downloads that members can see but can't download unless they have the status of "Charter Member" (membergroup).  To make matters even easier, when a "regular" user clicks to try to download the file, they can ask for Charter member status right then and there.

This allows me unprecedented and easy control over who gets to access my content. :)


vbgamer45

Glad you enjoy the mod!

I tried reading through ,and searching all 110 pages, sorry if its been asked before....  The word " download " is so small... is there any simple code, or a tweak I can do to make it bigger .. thanks for any help you code supermen and superwomen can give.

Editing the downloads2.template.php  in the view_download function in themes/default

Then either use h1 tags or make it bold.
