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

Look in the garage_css template.
Find

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

and replace it with


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

That should fix it. Let me know if it doesn't.

Drop down between mileage and purchase price

Hi

We have installed VB PRO Garage in our forums, well in the process of.

Everything seems to work ok, except.
There is a mysterious drop down between mileage and purchase price, in the add car section in profile, that has no tag saying what it is, and nothing in the drop down fields. There are only 4 options to select, all blank.

What is this, and how can we turn it off?

TY

It's template code that accidently got left in there. I haven't had time to update the package. Here is the post that tells how to remove it.

I just haven't had the time to update it. About all the time I've had is for support on the existing code.

Hello, I have this installed on my forums and love it. I tried to get my host (they do all the installs for me, They are great!) to install a second one of this mod (yes 2 of the same mods on the same forum) they said they could not do it because some of the files would overwrite eachother or something. I run a militia web site, and would like this same software tailored for use with weapons (mainly guns) and have it displayes right above the vehicle garage. Is it possible to do this? (customize it for use with guns and other weapons and have it installed on the same forum where the garage is already installed)
