    The FileDownload snippet has all features I need, but I moved my filestorage to another domain and now I´m looking for a possibility to get it working... It needs to work with the group-permissions and don´t need to work with features like directory listing etc...

    No existing snippet or easy way to modify FileDownload?

    Without the directory listing, what exactly would it do? Directory is another word for folder.
    And how will group permissions work cross-domain?

    directory listing -> I don´t need that visitors of my site can use this.
    group permission -> Group permissions are set on my first domain. This domain should include the files visitors have the permissions to see / download.

    See my last post -> maybe sb can change the path in filedownload.inc.php using the ftp-function...

    I think you are barking up the wrong tree entirely. Just because a snippet is called FileDownload does not mean it can be easily adapted to download files from anywhere.

    I think it´s not that difficult to modify. But unfortunately I´m not a coder.

    Is there any particular reason that you can’t run FileDownload (or similar) on the actual box with the files on it?

    Yes. No webspace!

    Why did you move your filestorage?

    Because I need the domain running (no time to change the provider).
    • You are really not a coder and you never will be. Sorry.

      This snippet lists files from a directory. Without directory listing, where is the list of files coming from?

      Perhaps you are thinking we are saying "subfolders". No. We are saying "directory listing".

      This is so far removed from FileDownload support that I am modding it out to a new thread in Wishlist.
      EDIT: Done.

      Right. If people want to discuss ways of solving simon79’s issue, please continue that here.
        No, I don't know what OpenGeek's saying half the time either.

        FTP-integration, as far as I can see, could be really an issue for MODx’ future, by the way ... wink

          Thanks for your nice opinion! What if I never tried to be (or become) a coder? wink
          But here´s neither the time nor the place to discuss this!

          My intention was to express something different.

          • @Simon79: There’s a difference between "never trying to become a coder" and "believing something is easy because you have no understanding of the code involved". It may be that your intention was to say something different but I can only go off what you did say.

            Not necessarily, it’s possible to solve this issue with a static listing taken from the remote server in another way. But yes, some FTP-capable snippets would be a big help. It’s very doable as the FTP functions of PHP are available to us.
