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

  • 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.

Awesome plugin!!!!!

I was wondering if anyone have implemented any related VBA CMPS module e.g. in order to display Popular rides like in vbrides.php main page.

My importer was motoring along just fine until it got to importing rides.

It appeared to import 8 vehicles and on the 9th it threw this error:
[CODE]Database error in vBulletin 4.2.3:

Database error in vBulletin 4.2.3:

Script : http://www.teambuick.com/forums/admincp/vbrides_import.php?do=import_vehicle

MySQL Version : 5.6.34

I have gone into the database, and deleted this vehicle, run the script again and had the same error after it imported a few more vehicles. I deleted each problem vehicle as it came up. The script came to an end and loaded the vbulletin admincp. Unfortunately, when I go to rides, they are not there

Sal Collaziano, below, you mention Approving, the script I ran did not require approving, not that it means much as it did not work either

Thanks,

I'm finding I need to manually approve every submission by editing each one and clicking "Approve" to submit. Did I configure something incorrectly?

That is how it works, all new rides require moderation. I have not found a way to turn it off in the options.

I am afraid I am still having a problem.

The import script appears to work properly. Then I go to the rides and there is a list on the left like:
Buick0
Ford0
AMC0
Pontiac0
Chevrolet0
Cadillac0
Other0
Imported1
Imported1
Imported1
Imported1
Imported0
Imported0
Imported0
Imported0
Imported0
Imported

I have enabled the administration options.

Nothing appears on the main page. I click Moderation/Approve Rides, under the navbar and it takes me to: Settings - Rides - Approve Rides , which appears to be in my settings. However the page doesn't contain anything to approve.

I went to My Profile - Rides and I see my rides there, but it has a default "No Image Available".

I have not looked at the importer, so I'm not familiar with it at all, but I will help as much as I can.

To me, it looks like it develops the Photos directories, but doesn't place any images in them. It does place a blank index.php in each.

I am not getting any errors since the removal of the files related to not having the delimiter /'s

I really hate to abandon the hundreds of users who have taken the time to upload into Garage, but maybe that is what I am just going to have to accept if I want to clean up my board.
