vB Version: 3.5.4 Rating: (12 votes - 4.33 average) Installs: 180
Released: 18 Mar 2006 Last Update: 12 Dec 2006 Downloads: 812
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Code Changes Additional Files  

Yes, finally I can release it here the converted version off Timeslips database for vbulletin 3.5.x. I made it as a product, try to change the file edits into plugin as best as I could but you still need to edit 2 files (optional). I can't think of an easy way to remove that but if anyone can, please pop in.

I've made the timeslips.php page XHTML valid. Of course the look has not been changed. Also made it fully phrased.

The permission is granted here

Please let me copy what EvilLS1 posted in the 3.0 hack

What does it do? This hack does a few things. First, it will add a separate "Vehicle Profile" page to your forum where your users can enter their type of vehicle, engine, tranny, tires, horsepower, best 60' time, 1/8 mile time, 1/4 mile time, upload thier timeslip and more. Once the data is entered the timeslips.php page will display the info sorted by the best times, highest trap speeds, highest horsepower #s, proof of ET, or ET brackets (user selectable).

You can also ban users from editing their Vehicle Profile. This comes in handy if you have some users who insist on entering false data into the Timeslip Database just to be funny. To use this feature, just click on the user's vehicle profile, then click "user options" and set "Can edit vehicle profile" to no. The user will still be able to edit his regular profile, but not his vehicle profile.


Features include:
*The ability to sort by:
-1/4 Mile ET
-1/4 Mile MPH
-1/8 Mile ET
-1/8 Mile MPH
-60' Time
-Horsepower
-Cars with proof of ET (actual timeslip)
-N/A cars only
-Username
-ET brackets
*Show the average ET, MPH, and HP for your site.
*Vehicle Profile (separate from user profile)
*Ability to ban users from editing their vehicle profile
*Users can upload their timeslip in the vehicle profile. (New!)
*Timeslip uploads can be disabled in the admincp. (New!)
*Admin can delete user's uploaded timeslip. (New!)
*Maximum width, height and filesize for timeslip uploads can be set in the admincp. (New!)
*Admin can set an ET for which a timeslip is required if user's ET is quicker. (New!)
*Installer

Demo:

http://www.ls6.com.au/forum/timeslips.php?
Installation overview:
Files to edit: (2)- member.php (1), functions_user.php (2), image.php(2)
Files to upload: (2)- timeslips.php, slipicon.gif
Templates to edit: (2)- USERCP_SHELL, navbar
Templates to add: 0
Phrases to add: 0

Why do I still have to edit files ?
The reasons for those editions are because you don't want users to see the timeslips profile fields in the memberlist/member profile/edit profile

and just that. So that means if you exclude those the hack will still work whatever



Installation instructions:

BACK UP EVERYTHING BEFORE INSTALLING ANY HACK

Firstly please read the file Instructions.txt file on how to install this hack.

the steps are: Import the product-timeslips.xml file. Do file and template editions. Upload files to correct folder. Then enjoy it !


I have tried all that I can by installing this hack on a fresh board and solved *almost* all the problem. But if you find any errors, please post it here (just do not duplicate things :P ).


Upgrading

I haven't had a chance to do the upgrade because I convert this for a fresh vb3.5 board. I've set up things that I think it's ready for the upgrade. I'm willing to test the upgrade on your board if anyone can give.

For the upgrade to work, you must use the latest version of timeslips which can be taken from here: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=60945



Support

I'll try my best to give supports. But please understand due to my heavy busy I may miss your post. Please understand.


Screenshots?

The shots from its 3.0 version are fine.
here's the link: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...ight=timeslips


Changes Logs

03/18/2006: version 1.1 Fully phrased the hack.
03/19/2006: fix the problem showing your current timeslip image when editing your timeslip. To upgrade simply re-import product-timeslips.xml.

03/19/2006: fixed a few bugs in this post: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...9&postcount=31 . Again to upgrade just reimport the product file.

03/20/2006: Hack version change to 1.1.3: Changed the field of field 52,53,55 to decimal (6,3). Added one more file editions into the instructions file to fix showing proper image. So bad to add another file edit but this is becaus there is no hook in image.php. this is how to do it:


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

Again to upgrade you need to import the product file again to overwrite. then do the above edit.

03/23/2006: Update: fix a JS error when submitting the new timeslip. (Thanks Sidewindr). Also the new product will attempt to remove your old vb3.0 options then add the new ones, this is for upgrading from timeslips for vb3.0 to vb3.5 . I didn't test that tho.

12/05/2006: Version 1.2 for vb3.6 released.

12/09/2006: minor fix for missing adding field50.

12/12/2006: fix the error: Fatal error: Call to undefined function build_hiddenprofilefield_cache() in C:\Program Files\xampp\htdocs\folder\admincp\plugin.php(1468) : eval()'d code on line 6

Please click install if you use this hack for updates. http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/vborg...hreadid=110717

This hack is free (why not?) but donation are welcome, my paypal is [email protected] . Thank you.

end of presentation, hope I don't miss anything.

Looks interesting though I'm not sold on the fact that the price is $35.00 to own a licensed copy. I know there's quite a bit of time put into coding, but for an add-on like this....I just can't see paying $35.00.

If you don't want to pay $35, then don't. And deal with trying to work around trying to get a basic hack that hasn't been supported since 3.5 to work. People are willing to pay to get the Timeslip Database mod to work for 3.7. But I guess $35 for a much better product (that is supported) is too much for others...

Who uses it? I do. And I know there are at least 5 other sites that do as well. Not too bad for something that was just made public a week ago. So yeah, there isn't a whole lot of people using it yet. But as word spreads, I'm sure more and more people will jump on.

Since I've added garage, my user base grew 20 members in one day and I had 9 Premium Members sign up that day! No joke. I have this mod restricted so that only Premium Members can create garages, but everyone can view them. People use their garage pages to show case their rides on other car sites (similar to what Car Domain has to offer), except easier to look at.

The Garage feature has paid itself off. $35 is very minimal amount to ask for such a large modification and is a MUST for any automotive site. A competitor site of mine has an image gallery they paid $150 for an owned license.

Myself, I will be donating much more to the creator of this software if/when I get more money from my site. Right now, all I get from Premium Members goes right back into the site/merchandising/software.

Examples of two rides:
http://www.g5club.net/forum/garage_v...w_vehicle&id=1
http://www.g5club.net/forum/garage_v...w_vehicle&id=5

We have been missing this modification since we had phpBB. We lost it after the site was hacked due to the flaw in the software, then we went to phpBBv3.... it being poorly designed/lacking features, we decided to move over to vBulletin (and loving it)... Now that there is a garage feature, it makes it EVEN MORE worth while to have vBulletin (ontop of all of its great features). Highly recommended.

To dig through the last 20 or so pages and find someone who might have had a similar issue. One more reason that is product sucks in its current phase. Its been patched and hacked so many times since 3.5 that its just a bunch of jumbled code now to make it potentially work with the current version of vb. All I can say is good luck, and happy reading...

I figured out how to delete this product. What worked for me was to re-install the xml product file w/overwrite checked. Afterwords I was able to successfully delete the product.

I spent a lot of time trying to figure out that very simple procedure. Support for this product is less than stellar and I'm in awe at how the creator is disregarding all the offers to pay him to code this for 3.7.x

It's much easier to use spend $35 on that other garage product, which has infinitely better features and layout.

I would use it on Quickstreetcars.com however, it won't work with the latest version and I have too much @ stake to try a hacked up version. I need something that's tried and tested.

Thanks,
Tim

Im not able to install this properly on my site im not sure why.

The site is www.Ctvtec.com

I uploaded everything edited everything BUT couldnt find one thing on the member.php:


###### In member.php find:
// *********************
// CUSTOM PROFILE FIELDS
$profilefields = $db->query_read_slave("
SELECT profilefieldid, required, type, data, def, height
FROM " . TABLE_PREFIX . "profilefield
WHERE form = 0 " . iif(!($permissions['genericpermissions'] & $vbulletin->bf_ugp_genericpermissions['canseehiddencustomfields']), "
AND hidden = 0") . "
ORDER BY displayorder
");





I searched the whole file and wasnt able to find it.
I think that is the problem.
What should i do?

Is anyone working on a new version of VB Timeslip Database

If someone comes out with an updated version for 3.7 then it is time for me to upgrade.

I've been doing some searching. I'm seeing a number of sites that are using Vb3.7.3 that have the Timeslip Database working. They they doing some custom work to make it work. Or is there someone out there that is doing the modifications to make it work?

What is the deal?
