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

Trying to upload the language file, but it tell me

The file you attempted to import only contains phrases and none of the settings required. You will be unable to make a new language with this file.
never uploaded a language so not really sure if I was doing that right anyways.

Why can't you add makes/models/trims? Is there an error?

I'm working on fixing the categories issue. Will be fixed in the next release.

I already posted that issue.


Got your PM. Thanks for continuing to try to track down my issue! I find it hard to believe I'm the only one... unless it's one of my mods interfering but I doubt it.

Hopefully the next update will resolve these issues.
Do you have multiple themes? Maybe the templates weren't in the main theme you use? I haven't seen the blank page before, just heard about it but mostly it was from people who created their mod with the templates named incorrectly.
We'll see if the next one fixes it, if not I'll keep working on it

Did you refresh the admincp after you imported the language file? It looks like the language is not there.

Ah okay, you don't want to create a new language. You want to set it like I have shown in the documentation. Basically, select the language file, select the language (english if that's the language on the site) in the overwrite language field and Yes for ignore language version.

I know the overwrite seems weird but it will only overwrite phrases with the same name. All the prhases in the file start with garage_, which is not used by vb, so you wont overwrite anything in the core language.

Okay got the language issue worked out, but now when I go live I get the following error;

Fatal error: Call to undefined function most_modified_block() in /home/content/c/o/l/coloradohpj/html/forums/garage.php on line 575
Any idea why?

Yeah it's left over code from the full version. Since you can't run sql queries it limits us a bit. btw, if you have ftp access you can set it so you can run sql queries

I'm working on a new package, should have it ready in the next half hour or so, since you can't run queries you're going to need to uninstall the garage and reinstall it with the new package. It will remove the block entries and recreate them, minus the erroneous one.

You wont need to reimport the language or make/model file though, just upload the new files and import the new product.

The update seems to have fixed the install issue, permissions issue, and missing table issue... but I still get a blank page.

I didn't uninstall and reinstall though... I just re-uploaded the files, re-imported and overwrote the xml, and re-imported the language file. Might try a fresh install later in the day.


New/Related issue:
I added a timeslip, and when I clicked Add to import an image, it takes me to garage_timeslips.php... but it's a blank page. Manually navigating to that page shows something, but it looks incomplete?

Looks like it's getting close! My latest attempt shows everything appearing as it should but when adding a vehicle I get the following:

Warning: mkdir() [function.mkdir]: Permission denied in [path]/includes/garage_func_var.php on line 1723

Warning: move_uploaded_file(images/garage/attach/1/garage_vehicle-1-12671961431_full.jpg) [function.move-uploaded-file]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in [path]/includes/garage_func_var.php on line 1798

I have worked through all of the directions above, including Overwrite English, and I get this install error:

This file was created using a different version of vBulletin from the one you are running.

Your version: 4.0.2
File version: 3.7.4


also, the .cmh help file is completely blank for content, just the framework is there.

I would buy the Pro version if I can get the free one installed correctly first.
