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

But, the link to view the users garage is not correct.

The link comes up as

http://***.com/forum/{vb:raw mainpage_url?do=user_garage_view&id=6
Fixed.

Missing a } in the garage_vehicle_view template.

One request... Maybe I missed it in the options but it would be nice to be able to set the duration each image has when the frontpage is in slideshow mode.

I'd prefer if it only display 1 car, perhaps the first car listed in that users garage, aka their default car or something?

So it would look like
Location: Green Bay, Wi
Posts: 10,504
Car: 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS-T
(year/make/model/trim)

I may even take out the make, as my forum is dedicated to mostly Mitsubishi and Eagle cars.

But otherwise so far so good, I'll have to look into purchasing the Pro version soon!
If there is more then one garage it will use the primary vehicle. By default the first vehicle they create is the primary one but they can change their primary one at any time.

Good idea, I'll make it a vb option in the next release.

Found another one...

In your VB user profile (not the garage profile), under the Vehicles tab... the thumbnail for each vehicle is squished/stretched instead of maintaining the original aspect ratio of the uploaded picture.

The same picture looks fine throughout all the Garage pages.

Just a picky visual thing, but figured I should mention it :P

It looks like vb automatically resizes it into a square. I'll see if I can override that

No that's a dropdown menu of your vehicle actions available.

I uninstalled, then re-installed, but it still would not work. I then re-loaded every file individually, and after a complete shut-down and re-boot, it is working.

All except the link to VIEW USER'S GARAGE (the blue button at the bottom of a vehicle page) it tries to open this http://forum.love-fords.org/%7Bvb:ra...rage_view&id=1 and gets a 404 error.

I do like it and it has good possibilities for my Forum. I would just like this link to work, it seems like an important item that will be used often.

The code is missing a }

Go to your style, and edit templates. go to the VB GARAGE PRO, then find the garage_vehicle_view template.
Find the code:

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

Replace with

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

Or just insert a } between mainpage_url and the ?
{vb:raw mainpage_url}?

Do you have it set so that make, models or trims have to be approved?
If you do,

Check in the ACP
ACP->VB Pro Garage->Makes/Models/Trims
Select The make and it should show you the models. See if there are any that are not approved.
If you have unapproved models it should show text on the front page for admins, or any group that has permissions to approve items.

I have your 3.8 version still installed (disabled) on my 4.0.2. Will this keep all of my current members vehicles, pictures, etc... that they have already uploaded? You may have answered this already but i did not find it.

Thanks.
