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

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.
In the short summary if someone uses " it shows this > "

Hi, thank you for the great plugin. It is wonderful. I want to disable mandatory fields (Year, Make and Model) how to do it?

Is it possible to "Short Summary" add character count?

Thanks.

romaszek, there isn't gonna be an easy way to disable those, would at least require deleting some code from the template. I looked into adding a character count, didn't get anything solid yet.

The year, make, an model are added together to make the title, so if you where to eliminate them how would you suggest coming up with a title.

I have a music portal, your wonderful plugin I want to adapt to CV for musicians. It is perfect for my purposes, I adopt only those fields if you agree. That's why I want to disable the forced field. Can you help me to do it in code?
Thank you very much.

The problem with the audio. I added an mp3 file but no player...

Sorry bad english ...

Hi,
I made a primitive character count for Short Summary.

1. Create a file: sign_limit.js


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

2. Upload file to your server sign_limit.js (eg. a folder vbrides)

3. Template: 'vbrides_addedit_ride'

find:

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

replace with:


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

4. In the first line of the template, insert:


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

The limit must be set in the code.
This is very primitive but for me it works.

romaszek,
First thanks for offering the counter code, if it does what I think it does it'll definitely make it in the add-on. Primitive is better you have it looking simple enough to understand. I"m post below what you can do to remove the required fields when adding a new entry. Still not a 100% fix though, the year is still added as a default 0.

Open the vbrides_addedit_ride template an delete the following code from the beginning.

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

Then use the "Search in Template" for the word "required" an delete it. Should find three.

That will remove the required restrictions an let you complete the entry. Though as I mentioned before those fields make the title the add-on uses to refer to the entry. The year will default to "0", I didn't figure out where this is being done. It needs some number entered,m wouldn't take text. So this might not get you to far so I'll work on being able to set them as required from the control panel.

Been having a little trouble getting the time to work on this product. I got a new puppy, the high energy kind that if it doesn't get enough attention it starts to chew on my arm.

It uses the Html5 audio player. So either your browser doesn't support html5 yet or maybe have the wrong link format. It's confusing, but was the only way to work it at the time, it requires the embed link not the share link given as itself. So the correct link comes from clicking on the embed code an copying the link used in that code.

First my bad l the talk about the link was me thinking the youtube video link. Audio is html5 just would be uploaded not linked.

From the image you posted it shows mp3 as not supported. Looks like you'll need ogg audio file.

Found a small grammar error on the short summary.

Post a small description. This is used on the main listing pages *an* is required. Administrators may have set a min/max character requirement.

Should say *and* instead.
