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

Hey dylan,

I contacted my hosting company and they disabled all safe_mode all together. I checked my vB admincp settings and viewed the PHP info and it's all off. I'll try to re-install again tonight and see what happens.

now my Q to you is: If I made the entire "upload" folder into a zip file then extracted it in my forum root, would that work?

Can you move files from one directory to another in the tool they have you use?
If you can and it was my site, I'd feel more comfortable zipping it up, uploading it to a temp folder to unzip and move the files from there.
It should work, but I've never done it so I can't say for certain.

Yeah I can move to anywhere i want within my system files. I'll create a folder as you said and extract the "upload" folder in it. then move the folders themselves to the forum root, right?

I'll do that after work tonight... I really apologize for all this mess and trillion q's. Thanks for your help.

Ok, so I've tried to run the vBGarage import script and I get this error.

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 16777216 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 8192 bytes) in /home/elantrax/public_html/forums/admincp/garage_vbgarage_import.php on line 355

I've tried to rerun it and now I'm getting multiple entries of the same vehicle. Any ideas?

I've simply gone through and deleted all the duplicates (although I don't believe the import completed and I don't have as many vehicles as there should be). Not too worried about that.

However, when viewing in Safari 4 I get a bit of a problem on the "Browse" page. It looks like this.

The memory error is probably because you only have a memory_limit of 16M in your php.ini file. Not sure if you are on a shared host and can modify that. If you can, I would up it a bit to like 32M or 64M

It's running out of memory and stopping the import

I hadn't checked the page in Safari, thanks for finding the error, should be an easy fix

ACP->Styles & Templates->Style Manager
Click Edit Templates and open garage_main
Find

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Add another <br /> at the end so it looks like

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

That fixed it for me, let me know if it's still off for you.

well I searched and didnt see any one that had this error..

Warning: require_once([path]/includes/garage_plugin_func.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in [path]/includes/class_bootstrap.php(399) : eval()'d code on line 20

not sure what the class_bootstrap.php file is, but I don't have it and it isn't included with your down load...

Will have to uninstall for now, but would like to get this one working...any idea?

thanks

The plugin is looking for
includes/garage_plugin_func.php
Make sure that file is there. It's included in the download.
