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 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.
Thanks for the response! I had some trouble with the video field. Seems to give me a blank page (white page) when I submit the new entry. I have not had time to debug why that is just yet. I am trying to understand how it creates a plugin, but I am not really that good at code, so it takes a long time to find what I am looking for. I am learning though - thanks!!

Regarding: "It might be better to hide the fields and add a text field through a plugin."

I would still like to be able to use the cool sort feature you have on the timeslips page. If I hide the original fields and add new fields, would they still sort or (and I expect this is the case) would they not show up in the sort fields area?

I really look forward to being able to add custom fields in the ACP! That will be a great addition.

I sent you a pm about the error.
Yes, if you hide the fields then you can't use the sort anymore. You could modify the file and the templates to get it to work but I don't know if that would be too much for you want to do.

What error is it giving you? You should install the product first and then the language, but even the other way around shouldn't cause errors.

Looks like you didn't upload all the files in the upload folder. When all is said and done you should have a file called garage_func_var.php in the includes folder and the script can't find it.

All the files in my upload folder need to be uploaded through ftp to the forum root while maintaining the folder structure. After you upload the files you install the product xml and then the language xml.

Is this still in the works? I have tried to edit the fields and add new fields with plugins, but would really love to just visit the ACP and set up my fields to work as expected. It seems, for all my efforts, I am just unable to get it where I would like it to use on a live site. I hope this is still in the works because I love this modification. Really nice work.

If you want, send me a pm with the fields you want to add and they type for them, any selection fields let me know the values. I'll create the plugin for you.

Random Select List?

I have tried reinstalling several times, but this doesn't go away. Thoughts?

How customizable is this mod? I want to use it for a different purpose that has nothing to do with cars, more of a directory for something.

It's a left over field that shouldn't be there.
If you go to the ACP and edit the template
garage_vehicle_edit

Find and delete

That will remove it

It depends on how you want to customize it. If you just want to rename fields, that can be done through the language and phrase section of the ACP. If you want to add new fields you can do that through plugins. Let me know if a bit more detail what you are looking to accomplish.

Hi all.

Has anyone got this to work 100% with all features running vBulletin 4.1.0 Patch Level 2? I have tried to install it 3 times and am unable to get the Comments section to show anywhere and all comment areas are enabled in admin.

Just curious if it works.

Thanks.
