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
Installation
  • Download and unzip the file 'product-vbRides_x.x.x.zip'
  • Upload the content of upload folder to your existing vBulletin directory. If your admincp folder is renamed from default manually move vbrides_admin.php to it.

    • vbrides/photos
    • vbrides/audio

Let's see, go to your templates an under vbrides group look for template names in red. Click to edit then open a html editor or notepad program. Copy the template name an paste it in the editor. Next copy all the text an paste it in the editor under the name so you know they are together. Do that for any templates in red in the group. Other than vbrides group the other template would be under cms grpup with rides in the name. Once done save the text in the editor as edited backup. Then i believe if you have already installed the latest version you can still just click revert next to the template edit link an it'll revert to the latest template. After that you can see what you edited from the old template to change it in the new template.

Btw igotsti, i see the new garage posted has the hard coded white font too. Are they doing that on purpose or is it automatic in that style. Might need to make a mention not to since your styles use different color backgrounds.

What also would be nice is if you could comment back to the person who left you comment and they would get a pm.

I have a importer for VB Pro Garage Timeslips 3.0.9 I just finished. It's working on my localhost, so I'm posting it for testing. I can't say if older versions work, but considering what little there is to import it might. The images an database is not modified so your old garage files will still be there. If your rides product already had stuff in it the importer adds to them, so nothing gets cleared. A new category named 'Imported' is also made that holds the new rides that are placed in inactive or hidden mode. So the owners can find them in the Usercp under my rides. Almost forgot upload the file to the admincp folder an link to the file directly.

Once I know it's working for people I'll post it in the downloads in the main posting.

Haven't really done much since posting the importer. All I had planned next was to get something designed for drag strip information an ability to link to a blog category (aka Blog build progress). An I suppose your idea for comment notification is possible. Have you seen any issues with 1.0.5 yet?

Past few weeks I guess I've been getting back on my real life car, have a 77 Camaro in bare metal.

I'll have you try the attached install file. It installed with no error for me, but since I didn't have the error before I don't know if this will work.

Today someone put something in quotes and the program added extra characters.

Any ideas what this may be?

In which section igota, the main description or one of the fields. Guess i can just look on your site huh. Looks like I'll be working on an update version.

Gijsje the error code is missing the userid value, looking into that too. I'm on a phone at work so not sure, but if if that error is crashing the site look if i but an option in admin settings to turn off that in postbit. Otherwise you can go to manage plugins an turn off the one relating to postbit count for now.
