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

Having a weird issue....

I upgraded from v 3.05 to 3.09. I reinstalled all the files in the upload directory, since it had been awhile and I wasn't sure anything had changed, imported the product and imported the language file. It is now identified as version 3.09.

However, when I disable the product, the header tab doesn't disappear and it keeps functioning - although some features turn off. When I enable the product I get a second Garage tab in the header and all the features start functioning.

I have double checked and there is only one instance in the installed products panel. Any hints?

You can see it at sledspace.com - it is currently enabled (two tabs).

Had to disable the garage. It was making some peoples entire posts links that linked back to the garage. So strange. Even though it is disabled, you can still see the single tab in the header, and it still mostly works.

Would really like to get this figured out, the garage is my favorite mod.

If anyone is having white page of death errors. Try modifying the following files

garage_timeslips.php
garage_vehicle.php

find "mb_split" and replace with "explode"

No idea why the programmer decided to use a function that is not enabled by default on most linux distros

In my random images block on the forums home page a few of the images seem to be displaying larger than I want them too. I have checked settings and all seems in order so not sure what is happening here

Hi again,

I raised an issue with you a while back: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...=1#post2361411

This has been happening again with numerous members. It seems that when they edit their profiles (not edits related to this plugin) it messes up their postbit drop-down garage link.

I've checked the length of the profile field as you suggested and it seems to have reset back to 250 for some reason. I changed it to 10000 again then saved, but if I go back and look again it's reset to 250 again.

Any ideas?

Really seems like I'm going around in circles having to keep go back into PhpMyAdmin and edit the database each time a users postbit messes up so I'd really like to get to the bottom of this.

Also I should mention that I've only recently noticed the 'rebuild vehicle postbit drop-downs' option in the garage management settings (not sure if that's new or not). I gave it a try but it doesn't seem to work for me...

If you look here you'll see the user 'Hoikey' has a messed up drop-down link: http://ssoc.co.uk/forums/showthread....=9299#post9299
^^this is how it's displaying AFTER running that tool in the garage management settings.

BEFORE I ran the tool, it looked like this:
postbit error.png

I won't go in and fix the users in the database for now, I'll leave the error there for you to see it so we can hopefully get to the bottom of this once and for all

Many thanks

I think development on this mod has stopped
Dylanblitz hasn't posted since October.

I was really hoping there was going to be another version of this.

I had to make a comment on the style an layout of this mod needs major work. I want to have this add on for my new website, but it doesn't match the design of the default vbulletin. I thought I just needed to change the tables style code to use the vbulletins theme, but getting overwhelmed with the amount of work involved. Hope the author sees this an realizes it's time to do a fresh rewrite. Even in his own posted screenshots of the timeslip page the text is against the border. The first image has the category images without spacing bunched up with each other an the border. An the top box doesn't have text so it's not at the same height. Plus the garage counts aren't showing correctly for the categories.

Less focus on features, more on design now please.

Since you haven't posted in this thread in a long time, and haven't done any updates to the garage script. Does this mean you're no longer going to support it? Would you be opposed to someone else taking over development of this mod? It's such a great add-on, and I would love to see more features added, and the bugs fixed.

Could you let the community know, and then if he's OK with it. Is there anyone who would be willing to work on this?

Chris
