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

Instructions, tips and more are now in the included chm file. If you have problems with the chm I have the document published at:

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

Well, I finally did an uninstall and a reinstall and it did not fix it

Is there a Coder out there who can fix this? I would be happy to pay a qualified person familiar with the vbulletin and related products!

Can someone suggest someone?

I would advise you to post here:

Requests for Paid Services

You will be more likely to draw the attention of those who do paid custom work. If you have never hired someone from this site, then please read this thread:

It was the best "Garage" program I have ever found. If someone knows of an equal, I would like to know! I would only want one that will probably be supported in the long term. That seems to be the challenge with plugins

I wonder if I was to simply uninstall what I have, then reimport the current code if it would work and save the vehicles.
This was a good product, but it has fallen badly over the last few years, and now it seems to have disappeared altogether.

DTO Garage is a decent replacement, but a bit overpriced IMO, and from what I can tell, it is very similar to VBGarage Pro.

the tab on the profile, or in the NavBar?
NavBar: Use the Navigation Manager in ACP and delete it
Profile: Should be gone if you deleted the plugin, but if not, then delete all the extra files it added

I have had problems with the Garage script, probably caused by being an original paid pro user. I am trying to clean up the errors and have found and fixed some. Can anyone help me with these two?
