Drive Thru Online – Garage

Overview

DTO Garage is a free product allowing all members of a site to show off their car, truck, motorcycle or other powersports toy. Site owners can easily adapt the section and subsection titles to suit the attributes to the site's focus. Images are stored locally preventing broken links and over limit displays common with images linked offsite. Drive Thru Online has made upgrading to the paid version of DTO Garage Plus easy, all user data stored in DTO Garage is retained for a seamless transition.

For users, management of their vBulletin garage is conveniently handled through their user control panel. The intuitive user interface encourages even the most challenged to create a compelling Garage. Images are added via a wizard from either the users own computer or a specified URL. Thumbnails are dynamically created with high-resolution images displayed in a navigable Lytebox. Users can designate whether a garage is visible to the rest of the site members or hidden until they have time to polish the information and give it the debut it deserves. Other users can view garages using interactive pop-up menus embedded in each post or through the Garage owner's profile.

Key Features
  • vBulletin Options-based customization of information collected and presented in garages
  • User management of garages via User Control Panel
  • Simple-to-use image uploads per garage
  • Lytebox presentation of high resolution garage images
  • bbCode supported in information areas
  • Additional image placement in information area supported
  • Dynamic presentation of garages in postbit and user profile
  • Embedded full featured searchable and indexed Help
  • Fully documented
  • Fully supported

Language Translation
As of version 1.1.3 DTO Garage has not been fully phrased and only supports English. With a future release it is our intent to offer a fully phrased version to support language translation of the product. When the fully phrased version is available we will provide documentation and tools to speed translations of the product for use on your site. We will also encourage those who have performed a translation to contribute it for distribution to other members. Any contributed languages will be included with this thread and credit given to the author. Site owners are free to translate the product either in its current state or future releases as they see fit given that the note found in the following Upgrade section is followed when upgrading. While Drive Thru Online will provide information to translators regarding the context of wording we can not provide support to facilitate the actual translation itself.

Compatibility
  • Fully compatible with vBulletin 3.6.8 through vBulletin 3.8.x
  • PHP 5.X or later (compiled with GD support) and MySQL 5.X or later is required.

Upgrading from a previous version of DTO Garage

  2. After unzipping the attached package open readme.html in your browser.
  3. Click on the “Documentation & installation instructions” to view the complete documentation for Garage.
  4. Note: If you have customized the DTO Garage templates in a previous release it is recommended that you make a copy of your changes, revert to the version of templates included with the new release and migrate your changes into the new version's templates. Failure to do this may cause the product to operate improperly and/or support new features that may have been added to the product.
  5. If you use a custom style for your site you may have to modify the garage templates. For more information refer to this how-to written to address the most common modifications required.

Thx for reply!

I have only one more issue. I simply cant edit link color in links inside navbar popup.

They remain white as on this screenshot:



They should be red like the rest of links. I did not change any of classes. They are all default.

This is what should look like:

Given the style you have on your site I would recommend that you look at how the drop down list of something like community or search is styled. Typically there is a class defined on each of the drop down items so you just need alter our navbar template to use these same classes.

Thanks

is there anyway to make like a display of pictures on the forum home page? Like, maybe of newest installed car, or random car pics? Kinda like vHoist has? I have un-installed vhoist and installed DTO, and am loving it.

I have the VBA module installed, but I would really love to show 4-5 pictures in a row on the main page....

In our Garage Plus product you have a lot more control over how the block is installed and displayed. For Garage you can modify the vBadvanced code found in the modules directory to suit your needs more closely.

Thanks!

Mark

Its really difficult to diagnose this types of issues without seeing the site and code. If you would be willing to come to our site you can register and then open a ticket. Once we have that information I can log in and figure out what's going on. I've done enough of these types of adjustments that it should be pretty quick to resolve.

You can also PM me directly if you would be more comfortable.

Thanks

Mark

There isn't direct support for this in the free version. That said if you use Cyb's Login to User Account plugin you can find the garage of the person you want to delete, click on the user's name to go to their profile, and then login as that user. Once logged in just click on UserCP and go to Manage Garage and delete the garage.

Hope this helps!

Hey is there a fix for this clashing with YAAS? (Yet another awards system)? I can't go to my www. ur/ forum / awards.php page with DTO installed. It's listed in the award system thread. Everyone who has both mods installed is getting the same error. And, most of the car forums use both, as they go hand in hand.

Here's my post...
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...&postcount=566
Here's the original post with the problem....
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...&postcount=539
and here's the whole thread...
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=196244

It seems there clashing and a poster said he "commented out a line in adminfunctions.php" and it worked. I dont wanna go messing with any codes I dont know.

We're all getting the same error code....

Can you help?

I've read through all the posts and also searched all of our code and there is no reference to the function construct_depth_mark in our code. That said it would be helpful to know what steps the using is taking to get this error to display. Is this in admincp, during the operation of the site, etc.?

I've never done any work with YAAS and haven't looked at the code. Was there a recent release of the product?

I noticed that your site has taken down the "available soon" for 4.0 on the garage version.

Garage Plus looks like its a great product and all, but I was wanting to try it out and see if people on my site would use it first.

Tired of waiting, moving on....

The admincp panel of the award system works fine. You can hand out awards, no problem, but, if you got to your main award page, which would be like www . yoururl . com /forum / awards.php it brings up that error. I disabled DTO and it takes away the problem.

I really like DTO, as I was using vhoist, and would like to keep it that way, but I'm gonna have to do something, as my members can't get to the main award page to request awards ect.

I guess, from what the poster above a few says, that it's something in adminfunction.php. But I looked in there and I can't tell what he quote"commented out" to make it work. That's why I figured you guys, that actually know what the hell your doing, could prolly solve this with ease.

If you need an example go to mine, www.tunemytoyota.com/forum/awards.php. It will show you the same error as listed above.

Once I disable DTO, the page appears fine.

Hope this helps.

I can see the error you are receiving when I go to the URL above but I would really need to log in and see if I can figure out what this has to do with Garage. If you are open to doing this just PM me and we can work out the details.

Thanks!

Mark
