This mod allows you to set download quotas per day for your users, instead of uncapped download ability (the default SMF behaviour)

Mod Defaults

Administrators = No quota
Global Moderators = No quota
Moderators = 10 MB

Other Groups = 0 MB

In other words, most user groups will have to have to values modified.

Any download that would put a user over their quota is not allowed - this adds a note to the forum error log.

Quotas are in KB rather than bytes as of version 1.2 of the mod.


Package Manager
should work in most cases.  Manual edits may be needed for themes that modify the Admin Panel / Manage Membergroups area; all other edits are generic (language files) or core source files.
