    Exactly as the thread title implies; Add an "Ebook/WSO" section to the Downloads area. Right now finding applications is a pain due to all the rehashed WSOs being posted. Seperating that out like its done for templates would make it so much easier to sift through.

    A little trick in the mean time, use google and a site:blackhatworld.com search its way better than the in forum search function and you'll easily find a specific dl you're looking for.

    Nice idea for a workaround wowhaxor but the Downloads section is not indexed in Google.

    I'll discuss it with Wiz...

    Might be a good idea. Blackhit and I will bring it up to
    Diamond Damien and see what he thinks about it. :)

    Didn't think of that, good point!

    It works with other sections though, IMO steer clear of the built in search its horrible :(

    Also on the topic I would second more subdividing of the download area. I really like the template section whenever I build a new blog and want a theme, makes things easier. I would think maybe doing a software section, ebook section and misc section? Dunno but it sounds nice to me.

    I actually like vbulletins built in search. If I'm searching for something specific its normally in the top 10. Non-specific things are also easy to find because I remember the general look of the posters name which doesnt show in google, nor the last post date :p


    Cleaning up the downloads section overall just seems like a good move. Adding the extra sections like haxor mentioned would be a step in the right direction.
