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

The first page the url is
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

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!
If you didn't manually fix the problem, I just released the next version that has the fix included as well as several big enhancements

Hey cool mod, but I can't get it installed. I import the product, but I can't import the phrases... it won't allow me. It says "The file you attempted to import only contains phrases and none of the settings required. You will be unable to make a new language with this file."

I also get this:

You are probably trying to import the language into the wrong area. Follow these instructions

EDIT:
Oh, just reread the message, probably the wrong settings on the import, same instructions though

Thanks so much. It installed after I selected the "English" language for overwrite when I was installing phrases.

I installed vb garage 2.1.9 ... should I have installed 3.0.2?

Also, how much is the pro version?

2.1.9 is the stable version, 3.0.2 is the beta, so if you want stability over features for now, I'd go with 2.1.9.

Thanks, I'll stick with 2.1.9

How much is the pro version?

Also, I can't see where to enable "CATEGORIES" ?

And, for some reason I can't comment on my own vehicle... ?

The categories are enabled on the Garage General Settings tab in the vB Settings area. The field is called Front Page View.
How do you have your usergroup permissions setup? The field is on the same tab called Usergroup Permissions

I don't see "Front Page View" under general settings. I am using 2.1.9.

I enabled "Advanced Usergroup Settings" but I don't see any settings in the usergroups for vb garage.

Oh duh, it's late lol. You can't use categories in 2.1.9, it's one of the new features in the 3.0.x series.
There is a section on the left pane of the ACP called VB Pro Garage that has a Usergroup Permissions area. When you have the permissions set to advanced it will use those for the garage items.

That's not my mod, that's the DTO Garage.

also, the .cmh help file is completely blank for content, just the framework is there.

I would buy the Pro version if I can get the free one installed correctly first.
I'm also having this issue when trying to install the language files..
