This release fixes an issue where PHP warnings would be displayed if both anonymous and common folder modes are activated together.

This version adds 2 new features and includes 3 new languages.

Per file sharing

It is now possible to share a single file without sharing a complete folder. In this case, when the visitor clicks on the link, the file will start to download without showing any other files in the folder.

Common folders

The idea here is to show users additional shared folders outside their normal home folders. These 'common folders' appear as links and can be populated by administrators with files of interest to all users. Unlike anonymous folders, common folders require access rights.

You need to complete conf.php with the following information to activate this feature on updated installs:

// Commun folders are visible in read-only mode by everyone. Enter a ';' separated list of folder names relative to $UploadDir, for example 'files/;demo/download/'. Don't forget the trailing slash!
$CommunFolders = '';

New languages

SOrg Downloader now comes complete with Italian, Portuguese and Dutch translations!

Thanks guys!

The following people provided translations, great job!

- Lucilla: for the Italian version
- Flavio: for the Brazilian/Portuguese version
- JohnT: for the Dutch version

The v1.00 release of SlashOrg Downloader includes several improvements and bug fixes.

Inaccessible files

In some unusual cases, the script might "see" the files without actually being able to access them. This causes PHP to display ugly warning messages. This version addresses this issue by checking a file is indeed accessible before attempting to access it.

Disconnect link

A user can now close their session without closing their browser.

Redesigned admin panel

To make the admin panel clearer when handling lots of users or shared folders, a new table-like presentation has been included.

Limiting file upload size

It is now possible to set a max upload size that is less than the actual server max.

- For new installations, just edit the SOrg Downloader configuration file (conf.php).
- To add this feature to existing installations, add the following code to the end of the config file (just before the closing "?>" ):

// The absolute max file upload size is defined in the PHP configuration on the server (i.e. entering a very large value here will not allow you to exceed the server setting). You can, however, use this setting to define a lower max file size for SOrg Downloader. Size is in kilo-bytes and '0' means use the absolute max size.
$MaxUploadFileSize = 0;

German version

Thanks to a German user, SOrg Downloader has now a complete German translation!


- Björn: for the German version
- LiFo2: for his help with the new admin panel

This version offers much improved rights management as well as better interface ergonomics.

Rights management

Several users have asked for more flexible rights management. This has been included in the 0.99 release.

When you create a new account or setup folder sharing, you can now define the following permissions:

- Super administrator: has total access to all SlashOrg Downloader features.
- Partial administrator: is set up in the same way as "super administrator", but has a "path" block. Cannot access the "control panel".
- Write rights: can create folders and upload files.
- Delete rights: can delete folders and files.

Write and delete rights can be used together.

Note: the rights used by older versions of SlashOrg Downloader are completely forward compatible with the improved rights management.


- HTML "labels" for better accessibility.
- Better form aligning for a cleaner presentation.

Bug fixes

- Deleting an account also deletes that user's active session.
- Adds "/" to "path" if missing.


Thanks to LiFo2 for some really interesting ideas and source patches.
