vbRides is a vBulletin Garage plugin for vBulletin Suite 4 forum software. Members of your website can showcase their rides with the community. This is not a port or copy of another garage but a unique mod designed by a car guy for the car community. My intentions with vbrides is avoid the bloat of unnecessary extensions an keep a simple 'showcase' style garage.

I have wanted to build a 'garage' add-on since I first started with vbulletin an worked on something with Magnus ten years ago. It was Christeris new add-ons that had the style an layout that inspired me to create this new add-on. He has since abandon his work an given ozzy47 his code who has given me permission to use Christeris code to build a new garage add-on called "vbRides".

Due to starting with code from another project this add-on will remain free an not offered as a pro or lite edition. However there was extensive work writing vbrides an would appreciate your support.


Key Features
  • User management of rides through the User Control Panel
  • Forty fields of specifications to fill out for a detailed ride profile.
  • Support for an audio clip embedded with the HTML5 audio player.
  • Ride owners can add a single YouTube video.
  • RSS feed for new rides with photo, title, an description.
  • Searchable fields include owner, VIN, and keywords.
  • Unlimited categories an subcategories.
  • Lightbox presentation of ride images
  • Create new ride thread in a specified forum showing the ride year, make, model, an it's main image with a short description.
  • Up to 5 ride listings can be automatically generated an added to owners forum signature.
  • Social Media block can either use AddThis account or choose Twitter, Google, Pin It, an Facebook like buttons.
  • Owners ride listings tab can be shown on their user profile.
  • Vehicle of the day within it's category added with cron.
  • Extra fields can be added under the user stats block.
Under Construction
  • SEO Friendly URLs has not been tested an should be considered under development.
  • Custom Facebook Open Graph isn't working as intended.
  • Signature hook is only showing ride for first post. To Fix Plugin Manager > Edit Plugin vbRides: Postbit, Signatures and PM's, Remove the "_once" from require_once.
  • Missing side padding for text in side blocks with last update.
Future Plans / Wishlist
  • Drag Strip stats, an extension to add drag racing information with timeslip images.
  • Modification system, an extension to add searchable database based on the parts. So a Holley carb install would be linked to other rides who have done the same install.
  • Add activity stream support

Do you need 7.1?

I have had similar problems, you should only run as new a PHP version as you need to run the programs you are using.

If not you should be able to roll it back in your Cpanel. I think your host can even roll it back for certain programs. You could ask them.

I am probably going to abandon this plugin too

By the way, I don't know nut'in, so hopefully someone else will give you better help!

I would think the errors/warning are due to deprecated function, and in many cases the scripts/plugins can be edited to rewrite the deprecated functions in terms of non-deprecated functions.

Interesting... Well... I upgraded to the latest version of vBulletin to keep up to date and figured I'd jump to PHP 7.1 while I was at it. So far this is the only piece of my puzzle that's not working. I'd like to keep it running but it's not absolutely necessary. I guess if there's no fix I'll close it down. But it IS a nice feature and I do like using it. I hope somebody comes up with a fix some time soon...

Thank you. When I attempt to moderate a new ride. For example, if I try to reject one, I get the following error:

syntax error, unexpected '/', expecting '-' or identifier (T_STRING) or variable (T_VARIABLE) or number (T_NUM_STRING) on line 4 in /home/username/public_html/forum/vbrides_modcp.php(254) : eval()'d code
#0 {main}

I'll have to download and install this product on my local dev site to investigate this. I will let you know what I find when I do this tonight.

Okay, I installed the product, and encountered the same error you reported when rejecting a ride.

To resolve this issue, locate the file "vbrides_modcp.php" and locate line 254 which reads:


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

Change this line to read:


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

Once I did that, the rejection process functioned correctly.

That did it! Thank you very much! I hope the developer makes this change for those using the latest versions of PHP...

It would be nice to have a switch to not show rides without pictures.

Another bug is that if you are posting new rides to a forum, they are posted as the moderator. I think the posting should be as the member.

I'd love for the ability to just shut down the submission if pictures aren't added. As it is, I reject "rides" every day for having no picture. The instructions clearly state in big red letters that any entries without an image won't be accepted. Unfortunately, I need to reject every one manually. Not the end of the world, really, but it would be nice to have the ability to reject automatically...

Hello! We are also using this plugin, however our moderators/administrators can not delete a vehicle submited from a member.

Do you have any ideas how we can perform this action?

Already tried to fetch a url like this

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

but all we get back is

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