I'm also keen to find out... I'm tearing my hair out trying to get responses from anyone who develops garage plug-ins for VB4.2. Sadly DTO cant be bothered to answer emails, vHoist seems to have been still-born...

Anybody else got any ideas?

yawn... sadly after reading 61 pages of repetitive posts, I still cant seem to get this installed properly to 4.2
It appears that there may be an error in the xml file?
For some reason, many database tables are not installing.
I have tried multiple attempts at reinstall and debugging with no luck.
Apache version 2.2.22
PHP version 5.3.13
MySQL version 5.1.63-cll
Architecture x86_64
Operating system linux

Issue: Missing database tables
Below are the only tables that are being installed:
vb_garage_blocks
vb_garage_colors
vb_garage_currency
vb_garage_engine_type
vb_garage_generation
vb_garage_guestbooks
vb_garage_trims Browse
vb_garage_vehicle_classes


I briefly examined the xml and could not find an error as of yet but still looking.

It should work on 4.2. I have my local dev running on 4.2 and it's fine, but it was originally installed on 3.6 and upgraded over the years heh.
I'll get a fresh install of 4.2 going this weekend and do a fresh garage install to see if I can find the problem.

Ok, I got it installed.
Apparently some db queries use ENGINE=MyISAM and others use TYPE=MyISAM
After changing about 13 entries of TYPE to ENGINE in the xml, it installed fine.

Bilderback, would you be so kind as to post what the fixes you made were? Just do a replace of one for the other?

OK, got it installed but the admincp menu for it looks odd. Looks like some menu definitions are missing

See attachment.

Also doesn't install the menu item in the navbar, even though I'm logged in as admin

That happened to me during one install attempt. (missing phrases) Not sure why but reinstalled language and menu worked great.
There is a plugin rewrite for the navbar if your running vB4.2 here:

I guess you figured out the XML file. I cant remember exactly how many changes there were (approx. 13) but at the end of each database query in the garage install XML, I changed some from TYPE to ENGINE. You should see that the first few use ENGINE and then it uses TYPE.

Thanks

All up and running. Do you know if there is any way to create custom text blocks, things like mods to supension engine tuning etc, similar to the old DTO Garage

I also need to disable timeslips - we're offroaders, not racers :)

Dylanblitz 20 Jul 2012 17:04

There is a vB settings page where you can disable the timeslips section.

Right now custom fields need to be added through plugins. The new version I'm working on (which seems to be taking forever) will have an area in the ACP to add custom fields a lot easier.

Thanks Dylan

I'm guessing developing the plugins requires some good coding knowledge:erm:

Just a couple questions.
1. [solved]Is there a debug feature so that I can display any errors within the vehicle submit form?
The garage suddenly stopped working = vehicle submissions go to blank page with nothing added.
I can go to Add Vehicle, enter no information and submit empty form with no errors
Solution: If your site is setup to use www. in the domain prefix, it also must be entered with the www. prefix in the garage URL.
My issue was the missing www. prefix so the form began with the prefix and submitted without it.
Most likely a token wasnt being passed.

2. [solved]Are there new features or fixes in the commercial version that do not exist in the free mod?
Solution: http://www.vbprogarage.com/forums/sh...censed-version
Thanks

My vehicle submission form looks really tacky, almost as is it's missing some style information

Not only that but the calendar doesn't display any of the forward/back buttons normally associated with a calendar. Although they are there - you just have to know they exist.

Also, the calender doesn't honour the default date format

Some of that is known bugs. Look at the bug section up top and the 4th and 5th ones will take care of the extra fields.

If you want to PM me a link with an account that has access I'll take a look at the calendar thing.

Thanks. I didn't pick up on the bug list - will attend to that when I get the chance.

I'll send you the PM.
