Download module
What's the best option for Xoops Cube for a download module? It needs to be able to host local files on the server. On Xoops I used WfDownloads but since the Smartfactory is developing for Xoops I wonder what will happen with compatibilaty.

Re: Download module
I just tried PDdownloads 1.2 yesterday.

There's no problem to install PDdownloads 1.2 in XOOPS Cube 2.1.0 Legacy, but the layout of PDdownloads still has some problems.

Besides, some options can't display correctly. They become PHP variable names instead of normal options.

So I removed PDdownloads afterward.

I guess, PDdownloads 1.2 needs system module comes from XOOPS Cube 2.016a, and XUpgrade module should be installed, too.

But I haven't try it yet.

Re: Download module
I have tested PD-downloads a bit and except from a couple of warnings I didn't encounter any problems. Probably I should tested more or ...

I have installed wf-downloads 3.1 as well, it works smooth. Hmmm, regarding the future compatibility...this is an issue.I don't know what will be the story...

Ahh...I heard about a new module called downloads-plus (i think) but as Shine stated we can't find it. I hope the developer read this message :)

Re: Download module
I think tge mydownlaods module enhaced by Hervé is a good solution. There are some Lang additions made, but you can easily grab the original langfiles and add them.
It does however lack category/file permission(s), but who knows within the future Hervé will develope it further. And if you don't need the extended permission(s) settings at this moment.... I'd say go for this one.
The find with WFdownloads is that it doesn't give you a good overview of the categories and files. All you see on the index is the alfabet. If you don't know the name of a file you need to look/surf through all the alfabetic letters. Grrrr

See hervé's mydownloads: http://www.herve-thouzard.com/modules/mydownloads/singlefile.php?cid=6&lid=133

Grtz., Shine

I just download and install Mydownloads 1.42 mentioned above.

But there is no option to choose or enter in the Preferences of Mydownloads in:

Max uploaded files size
Select upload folder (THE PATH)
Select the matching URL

Does anyone has the same problem?

Mine is a fresh new installed XOOPS Cube 2.1.0 Legacy.

Re: Download module
Don't know if it is Xc compatible ( I know it does work within Xc 2.16) but....... I know for shure this version has the admin preference setting of
- selceted upload folder.
- max upload file size
- matching url

Perhaps Hervé can shed a further light?

Re: Download module
Thanks, Shine.

It seems like Mydownloads is a nice module for distributating and sharing files. I will try it in XOOPS Cube 2.0.16a first.

Thanks for your information.
