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

  • Download and unzip the file 'product-vbRides_x.x.x.zip'
  • 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.

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.
hmmm, ok I will take a look at it as soon as I can.

I have another site running the same vbulletin version and garage. I attempted an import of rides there too with similar results. The other forum is pretty plain and has no problems with garage.

Is there something basic I can be doing wrong?

On my first attempt I did show this error:
[26-Dec-2016 00:11:08 UTC] PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function can_administer() in /home/carscene/public_html/forums/vbrides_import.php on line 36
[26-Dec-2016 01:28:52 UTC] die 4 false

No, it is probably an issue with the importer. I have been sick all week and have not been able to look at it yet.

Thanks, so often I just don't see the problem.
Sorry to hear you have been sick, hope you are feeling better soon. It is easy enough to get something with all the seasonal socializing.

try this.

Add the below to line 200-201 (vbrides_import.php):

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

Save and try running the import again. Not sure if this is the issue, just stood our to me that the script doesn't seem to create all the folders it tries to use.

Just empty folders containing an empty index.php
Each time the script is run, it creates another consecutive set of files for all the vehicles.

No, the one site is a very small, not well used site which did not have a problem with the Garage version. If you would like log in info, I can give it to you.

Sorry, I have not forgotten about you, I'm just still getting over being sick, and am not on the computer very much.

I will go through things on the test site you sent me and see what I can find.

Sure would be nice to have a widget for the vbulletin CMS

Wouldn't even mind a piece of code to show latest vbrides on another site.

I finally gave up on the import and installed it anyway.

Is it possible to put the vbrides directory in a subdomain?

When moderating a ride with the "New Rides Forum", the posting is made by the moderator, I would have thought it should be by the person who uploaded the ride.

I'm having issues with the plugin since upgrading from PHP 5.6 to PHP 7.1. Any solutions?

syntax error, unexpected '/', expecting '-' or identifier (T_STRING) or variable (T_VARIABLE) or number (T_NUM_STRING) on line 4 in /home/username/public_html/forum/vbrides_modcp.php(254) : eval()'d code
#0 {main}
