hey all,

firstly, i have no php experience whatsoever, and that's the main reason i need help in the first place...

you may have heard of this before, but there's an awesome server transfer script called RapidLeech

basically, it downloads files from many popular file sharing sites to your server, and allows you to upload to them too.

this is cleverly achieved with the use of various download and upload plugins, one for every website.

there's a tutorial for making download plugins but as i mentioned before i don't understand ANY of it...

the website i'd like to create a download plugin for is called appscene.org.

the page is simple: the main part is a form with a captcha image, which checks whether the correct captcha is inputted, and serves you the download.

this is the form code:

<form method="post" action="download.php?stage=verify&download_session=c3a27f1f69be516fa871391d5943a44e">
<table width="100%">
<td><img src="captcha.php?sess=c3a27f1f69be516fa871391d5943a44e"/></td>

<td><input type="text" style="font-size: 22px;" name="captcha"/></td>
<input type="submit" value="Submit"/>

the code for a sample download plugin is too long, however i have copied the megaupload plugin (also with captcha) to pastebin: here

with the sample plugin and the tutorial it sounds easy enough to create a download plugin for such a simple site, however for php-retarded people like me it's impossible...

so please, if you can create a download plugin from what you see here, or at least point me in the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated!

Personally I would steer clear of anything like this.

I don't want to lose my account with my ISP and I don't particularly warm to men in blue uniforms knocking at the door.

Corporate attitudes to "file sharing" are not as liberal as they were just a few years ago.



i don't see what's so illegal here... you act as if everything on rapidshare, megaupload etc. is illicit content, however i am one of many that uses these websites to share my own content e.g. ipod touch themes and artwork.

i understand if you wouldn't want to help me here since, as you stated, attitudes towards file sharing have changed... however if you would be kind enough to help via PM or email, that would be greatly appreciated.

once again, i do understand where you are going with this though.

Do you expect us to read all this, digest it and regurgitate it in bite-size pieces for you? You sound like a cuckoo.
