Description
VB Pro Garage Timeslips (formerly CND Garage/Timeslips) is a free vehicle and timeslips add on for vBulletin 4. This is a great way to allow members to show off their rides, whether they are cars, motorcycles, atv's, etc. Site administrators have dozens of options to tailor the way the garage is displayed and the number of vehicles, images and timeslips the user can enter. User vehicle creation is done through a simple screen with dropdowns and simple text fields. Users can enter either miles or km and system will automatically calculate differences for front page statistics.

** New Features **

* SEO Friendly URLs (htaccess only)
* Page Caching - physical html files which make a HUGE reduction in sql queries
* Front Categories - a category system as an alternate front page to the block layout. I believe it will increase the garage ranking in search engines greatly when used with SEO URL's and the included dynamic meta tags.
* Thread Creation - Automatically create new threads in the forum of your choosing with the text of your choosing when a new vehicle is created in the garage.

Main Features

* No vb template modification needed
* Ajax driven menu's to keep load time down if you have a very large lists of makes/models
* Usergroup level permissions to set the amount of vehicles, images, timeslips allowed
* 99.9% of the text is phrased so that it can be translated for multinational sites
* On the fly image/text watermarking ability to make sure images are tied to your site
* Lytebox image presentation

Installation
Instructions, tips and more are now in the included chm file. If you have problems with the chm I have the document published at:
http://www.vbprogarage.com/forums/docs/html_vb4_ts_300/

The quick and dirty install:
1) Upload all files in the upload folder
2) Import vb_pro_garage.xml into Product Manager
3) Import vb_pro_garage_language_english.xml into Languages & Phrases
4) If you want all makes and models I've collected, import vb_pro_garage_vehicles^^new_install_only.xml into Product Manager

Post Installation
So you don't have to find it in the instructions. After install, there is a button up top in the navbar. This button by default is admin only. This is so you can configure and test without having to close the garage. When you are ready to deploy to the community:
ACP->Settings->Options->Garage General Settings - Set Garage Menu Button to Enabled.

The garage is developed on vb 4.0.7 and tested back to 4.0.0. The garage will run on PHP 5.x+ compiled with GD/GD2 and MySQL 5.x+

Additional options for the garage like adding featured businesses that support your site, fuel tracking, dyno charts, modifications and lots more are included in the commercial version.

Many thanks to Coroner for his stylebridge which led me on a path that saved me hours and hours of template editing

I'm unable to approve new trim/engine/model suggestions. I get the PM that a new model has been suggested, but when I click the "Approve" link there is nothing to approve.

It might just be bringing you to the main approval area page. There should be links under there to select the different types of items that need to be approved.

Also, if you go to the main garage page, you should see links to any items that are awaiting approval.

I'm sorry, I didn't get notified there was a new reply.
That happens because the permissions on the attach folder aren't working.
Try setting the images/garage/attach and all of it's sub folders to 777.

Question to CustomColor or DylanBlitz.
Love Garage! My problem is I'm using it for mostly boats. What I need to figure out is how to modify the input fields as was done for the aquarium site. For instance I have no need for mileage, purchase date, etc. But I need things like length, number of engines, etc.

Can someone point me to where I would start looking to make these edits?

Thanks in advance.

Use phrase manager to find the instances of the category, name, etc and replace them with the syntax you want. I did this on my site at www.sledspace.com to fit snowmobiles better as well. A little tedious, but it works great.

Alternately, if the fields don't fit what you need it to do (i.e. you need a dropdown) you can also add new fields through the plugin system. I can create the file for you if you pm me what fields you want and values. In the next few versions I plan to have it so you can add custom fields through the ACP fairly easily.

To remove fields you don't need, if they are not required fields, you can remove them from the templates without harm. The vehicle templates you need to edit are garage_vehicle_edit and garage_vehicle_view.

When I go to the bottom of the main page to the browse vehicle box, which is grouped by Generation and click on one that has 32 vehicles, I get a page with the first 25, but when I click on the link for the second page I get a message
Search Results
No Listings in the database at this time.
The first page the url is
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

but the second page it is
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I found that if I use
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

it gives the expected results.

Let me know if I need to supply any further information, or if the problem is on my end..

Thanks for the great mod!

I have it fixed in the next version. If you want to manually fix it for now

Open garage.php
At line 1424 you should see


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace it with


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Hi,
I must be just doing something wrong, I installed this and thought it was working fine.
But my 'registered' users, don't see 'garage' in the navbar.

I can see it OK though, I checked their permissions and it appears they have everything. What setting does it take to enable the button for usersgroups?

ACP->Settings->Garage General Settings->Garage Menu Button

It defaults to Admin Only so you can do all your setup before the users see it.
