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've done that and much much worse

Try importing your dev vb4 product xml into your production vb3 site by accident, now that was fun

thanks for letting me know about the hook!!
beware with that hook, that's an OOB hook from vb, not one I added, so when you upgrade/add other products that use it, you will have to move it back again or account for the hook being in a different place.

Glad you got it worked out though

I have a question, users that have vehicles it shows on the left side of the page but it's not lined up to the far left. For example look at this picture


Can we change it to just say like the model/year/trim and not the make? And move it over?

It is lined up with the other data there, although, I'm not sure why the title on the left is not showing? It should say Vehicle on the far left.
If you want to remove the make you can edit the template postbit_garagelink and remove any instance of {vb:raw entry[make]}

Hi Dylan,

I recently moved my DB to another server and started to receive this error message soon after. I though if i uninstalled it would correct the issue but it has not.

Any suggestions?

Running this in phpmyadmin or the vb sql query area if you have access should do it. DELETE FROM phrasetype WHERE fieldname = 'garage'; If you have a prefix you need to add it before the table, so if you have a prefix of vb_ then it'd need to be DELETE FROM vb_phrasetype WHERE fieldname = 'garage';

That will remove the garage phrase reference. Not sure why it was stuck in there.

OK i ran the query. Lets see if that worked.

It had to be something with the move.

Thanks for the help.

hmm, that should of done it. Are you running the query through the ACP sql query or phpmyadmin?
If you are doing it through phpmyadmin can you run this and see what you get back?

If you get no rows back then I'll have to figure out where else it's still calling the garage phrases. If you get something back then the delete didn't *take*
btw, are you trying to uninstall the garage for good or was it just a server move? I'd think reinstalling the garage would fix the problem.

Dont want to uninstall it for good. I am using phpmyadmin.

This was the return result from running the phrase above -

I don't know if this has been asked before, but everytime I access the garage from the navbar, my entire forum switches from the default center orientation to left orientation.

Another thing, everytime I upload a pic for a vehicle, as soon as the uploading is complete I get the following error: Error: Image could not be moved.

I'd appreciate any sort of help I could get, apart from that, this thing is awesome

Did you reinstall the language file? I thought you were removing it. That's usually when you get that error, if you uninstall and there is some error that leaves a bit of it there still heh.

Try reinstalling the product and language file. It should readd the phrase group, but all your settings and customized templates should stay the same.
