Description
VB Pro Garage Timeslips (formerly CND Garage/Timeslips) is a free vehicle and timeslips add on for vBulletin 4. This is a great way to allow members to show off their rides, whether they are cars, motorcycles, atv's, etc. Site administrators have dozens of options to tailor the way the garage is displayed and the number of vehicles, images and timeslips the user can enter. User vehicle creation is done through a simple screen with dropdowns and simple text fields. Users can enter either miles or km and system will automatically calculate differences for front page statistics.

** New Features **

* SEO Friendly URLs (htaccess only)
* Page Caching - physical html files which make a HUGE reduction in sql queries
* Front Categories - a category system as an alternate front page to the block layout. I believe it will increase the garage ranking in search engines greatly when used with SEO URL's and the included dynamic meta tags.
* Thread Creation - Automatically create new threads in the forum of your choosing with the text of your choosing when a new vehicle is created in the garage.

Main Features

* No vb template modification needed
* Ajax driven menu's to keep load time down if you have a very large lists of makes/models
* Usergroup level permissions to set the amount of vehicles, images, timeslips allowed
* 99.9% of the text is phrased so that it can be translated for multinational sites
* On the fly image/text watermarking ability to make sure images are tied to your site
* Lytebox image presentation

Installation
Instructions, tips and more are now in the included chm file. If you have problems with the chm I have the document published at:
http://www.vbprogarage.com/forums/docs/html_vb4_ts_300/

The quick and dirty install:
1) Upload all files in the upload folder
2) Import vb_pro_garage.xml into Product Manager
3) Import vb_pro_garage_language_english.xml into Languages & Phrases
4) If you want all makes and models I've collected, import vb_pro_garage_vehicles^^new_install_only.xml into Product Manager

Post Installation
So you don't have to find it in the instructions. After install, there is a button up top in the navbar. This button by default is admin only. This is so you can configure and test without having to close the garage. When you are ready to deploy to the community:
ACP->Settings->Options->Garage General Settings - Set Garage Menu Button to Enabled.

The garage is developed on vb 4.0.7 and tested back to 4.0.0. The garage will run on PHP 5.x+ compiled with GD/GD2 and MySQL 5.x+

Additional options for the garage like adding featured businesses that support your site, fuel tracking, dyno charts, modifications and lots more are included in the commercial version.

Many thanks to Coroner for his stylebridge which led me on a path that saved me hours and hours of template editing

OK Dylan you will now be able to sleep at night as I finally got it working right, LOL!! I was not choosing English as the language. Sorry for being such a PITA about this, but I am going to play around with it for a few days and hopefully in that time you won't hear from me...Next step will be purchasing it from you and then dealing with you on your site which you should change on here because if people view your profile it brings them to an old page I believe??

Is this not the correct site? : http://www.vbprogarage.com/ , one last question actually Dylan what mod or how did you get the dropdown menu under "Products"?

Cheers,
BriShi

Thanks for reminding me about that, forgot to change the page link.
The Products dropdown is part of an internal Dragonbyte tech software. There is an article on here that shows how to do it or you can get a mod that will let you customize you navigation from the ACP.

hey dylan, i was changing up some stylevars last night not paying attn to my garage and......

now the welcome message on the garage page is black just like the background of the page so it can't be seen. And all the description fields, such as color, year, make model, etc. on each car's garage page is also black just like the background. I've been changing style vars for the past three hours to try and get the text to show back up and I swear I've been through every one, but probably not. Oh, I'm 4.1.11.

Do you know what style var I can utilize to change the color of that text?

Just for reference... www.houstonhorsepower.com

I'm using Common/body_color for the text.

Hi,

I've created a new usergroup that mimics the same permission settings as those of registered users, but every time these users want to comment on garage pictures or upload photos, a permission error pops up.

Is there a solution for this? Thanks in advance!

Make sure you are using the right permissions...

Check

Admincp > Settings > Options > Garage General Settings - Usergroup Permissions

What's it set to?

if its advanced, make sure you are updating

VB Pro Garage > UserGroup Permissions

if its Basic, make sure you are updating.

Admincp > Settings > Options > Garage Basic Permission Settings

Good luck!

Photo Descriptions: Give the user the option to add a brief description of the picture they are uploading. This description will display under the photo when other users view it.

Social Buttons: I mentioned this earlier and I think it would be a nice addition, add the Google +1 and FB like buttons to each users garage. This will also help bring in more users, and also helps in search results. Google keeps track of +1's and uses that in determining your ranking.

this is a great mod, I love having it on my forum

Oh is it possible to add the random vehicle image to a VBadvance portal page?
I would like to display it on here
http://www.caraudiocentral.net/

Hi, just wondering if you are considering any of these for the next release?

Thanks,
chris

This mod is an excellent mod... However, it's very specific to vehicles. I see much more potential if this mod could be easier to customize to other types of sites.

For instance my site is a video game related site and people want to show off their arcade cabinets and video games. I customized this mod to be Gameroom instead of Garage and it worked out quite well. I've upgraded my site to 4.1.11 and now I need to update this mod. I really wish this mod was easier to customize for other types of sites.

Other than that... excellent mod!

I'm not sure what version you are running? I am planning on making some major changes in the version I'm working on now. Custom fields through the ACP, changing the name of the main file, etc.
