I installed this and everything went fine, however when I go the control panel and try and upload an image to the garage its submits the form with no errors but the image dose not come up. I am running GD2+ so that shouldnt be an issue. Anyone have any ideas?

This is my second post regarding this issue. Others have posted the same but nobody ever answers. Here is the problem:

I have installed this hack on about 7-8 forums now, and all have the same problem. Whenever I go into the usergroup settings to adjust a setting for a specific usergroup, it turns off the permissions for the vbgarage automatically.

I always have to go back in that usergroup's settings and turn on vbgarage again. It is very annoying. Is there any way to fix this?

Probably over half of the questions in this thread are about the same problem you are asking about, with its answer following most of them. Try doing a search in this thread for "permissions" or something.

Here I found one of my old posts that should explain what you need to edit.

Alrighty folks, found the problem for those of you running 3.0.7 or 3.0.8 like I am on a lot of my forums. I was having serious problems with my vbgarage permissions changing constantly for my various usergroups. Hope this helps...

The instructions tell you edit INIT.PHP like this:

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

BUT They must have added the reputation system somewhere between 3.0.0 and 3.0.7 because 'canvbgarage' is not the last line before the );

So, what worked for me is this:

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

Notice that the number is double the previous reputation number(I dont know what the purpose of this is, but thats the pattern)

Hope this helps. I looked forever in these threads and I could not find anything clear. Just little bits and pieces. I hope this is a little easier to understand.

Thanks for this great hack,

Diesel Forum

i am not sure what i did wrong, but if you look at my vbgarage: It show's that the garage is there, but you cannot do anything with it at all. I set everything up the way the instruction's stated, and every step was followed. Does anybody have any idea, why it can't be used? In my usergroup settings, they are all marked to yes.

Is this safe to install on 3.0.8 then ? Does the installer take care of any database alterations ?

I am getting a page not found error on "/forums/vbgarage.php" after clicking submit in the Edit vbGarage form in the User CP.
Yet, the file is there and everything else works so far.
(actually a few things don't but they should once my domain name gets redirected.)

I just checked: if I add a "?" to the url, it comes up.
Any way to fix that or even make the "?" come up automatically.

Forgive me if this is a noob question. I started working with stuff exactly 1 week ago - before then I knew nothing about SQL, phpbb (I migrated a board from it), php, vBulletin, etc...
