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'm not sure what would cause that. You could see if you have a file manager in your domain control panel. Most of them allow you to set permissions there as well. Just make sure you are setting the permissions on the right folder. images/garage/attach

That got rid of the database error, thank you...what it does now is shows the vbulletin message "could not find the phrase 'addedgb'" and I notice none of the comments show up in the latest comments block on the garage home...it says "no listings in the database at this time"

Check out the instructions, it looks like you didn't install the language file.

That is weird. Works fine in firefox but it does it in IE. I'll check the code on my dev box, you can turn the random images off for now if you want.

Do you use the sub forum manager or something else to modify how the forums are layed out? I want to replicate as much as I can to try and track it down.

Question

Hi i've installed this mod and imported my phpbb cars and images successfully, however i'm having a problem.

So far users are unable to add new vehicles as the "model" dropdown box has nothing in it but a ---. Trim seems blank also.

The funny thing is when you edit and imported car all the model information is there.

I did run restructure and the other update counters but that didnt help.

Can you tell me how to fix this? my club loves this mod.

[edit]

Nevermind i got it sorted out

For anyone on the fence from the free version to the pro version I just wanted to take a minute and let you all know that Dylan's level of support redefines the word exceptional.

I had some big issues when moving servers. It wasn't related to the software itself, but a corruption that unfortunately hit the block of mysql data the garage was in. Dylan busted his ass helping me out countless nights figuring out record by record what happened and how to correct it and we now have a fixed and saved Garage. Sure, mine wasn't a 5,000 car garage, it has a couple hundred vehicles in it maybe. But you wouldn't know it from the support I received. I was treated like I'm the be all end all of car sites and that kind of support we all know as forum admins and owners is few and far between.

So thanks Dylan, I know you have no clue I'm posting this but you deserve the standing O for all the hard work, dedication, and quality support you give this product. I'll PM you a link now to put a smile on the end of a work day.

-Steve
