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

You can disable the timeslips through the acp, there is an option to have it enabled/disabled.

For the dropdown you might want to utilize a field already there that has that option. Maybe the engine types field? Just rename the phrase for it.
Thanks so much! Do you have an example of how to do custom fields with plugins?

I will have another look at the timeslips in the acp. I must have missed that setting somehow.

Thanks again for great work!

Regards,
Kether

I can't see the location to comment on a vehicle. Did I miss something?

Also how do I remove the Comment notification option and I have a drop down with no name. See attach image.

For the questions
Best way to fix the problem and remove the comment notification:

ACP->Styles and Templates->Style Manager

At your style select Edit Templates
Scroll down to and double click VB Pro Garage Templates
Double Click garage_vehicle_edit

Smile Timeslips - text instead of numbers?

Hi Dylan,

Is there a way that I can use text in the fields of the timeslips page instead of numbers? I want to utilize those fields for data that is not numeric and it appears that those fields only seem to take numerals or they change to 0.00.

Thanks for the help!!

Sorry, that field wasn't supposed to be there. It's a commercial field I didn't take out. If you edit the garage_vehicle_edit template
Find and delete

You would have to change the database fields and some of the code that formats the numbers. It might be better to hide the fields and add a text field through a plugin. That file I sent you make sense?
You can do the same thing to add fields to the timeslip record as well.
In a couple versions all the custom fields will be done a lot easier through the ACP.

Is it possible that in the phrase "garage_ msg_ err_ image_ resolution" is an issue?
Error: Image resolution is too high. Max resolution allowed is
isn't the resolution at the end missing?

That was one of the phrases I did before I knew how to do a contruct_phrase and never updated it
It builds the rest of it before it displays

$vbphrase['garage_msg_err_image_resolution'] . ' ' . $vbulletin->options[garage_image_width] . $vbphrase['garage_txt_px_width'] . ' x ' . $vbulletin->options[garage_image_height] . $vbphrase['garage_txt_px_height']
