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

What version of mysql is it? There are a few errors I see it can be from, the one I saw the most was the diskspace that tmp resides on could be running out of space.

That will give you the style id, like the default style has an id of 8.
Thank you Dylan, this fixed the issue. I so appreciate the time and effort you put into supporting this great product. Thanks!!

MySQL Version 5.0.91-log
MySQL Packet Size 32.00 MB

I'm on a hosted system, is the tmp location something I could clear out in my directory access?

Looks like you may be right about the space issues. I tried tech support and as is usual they weren't very helpful. Told me I wasn't near my space limits, and that everything resets every hour... don't think they knew what they were talking about.

This may be a silly question, when I initially installed the mod and imported the makes and models, they are all in upper case, how can I get them to be in lower case (except for the first letter and makes like BMW)

Error 28 is a space issue. I found a thread about it on vb.com

I can't think of a way to automatically do it. Sorry.

I was wondering, would you know how we could add the Google +1 and Facebook 'Like' button to each members garage?

Thanks!
Chris

Hello, I am new to vB but am finding my way around it pretty good so far on a TEST site before going live. I am working on a Drag Racing site and this looks very cool and would be great for users to post their rides, timeslips etc, wondering if it will work with vB 4.1.11, if not is there any hope for an upgrade or do you know of anything similar?

Cheers,
BriShi

Thanks for looking into it, I think it would make my garage a little more used if people could share it easily.

I have it running on my 4.1.11 forum and everything seems to be OK. No issues that I've seen yet.
