New "garage" Add-On

Hello, I have been working on a new add-on that I'm close enough to share some screenshots. I have been wanting to build a vbgarage since I first started with vbulletin an first worked on something with Magnus ten years ago. We've had a few mods that have come an now appear to be gone so it was time I get motivated. It was Christeris new addons that had the style an layout I dreamed of doing that inspired me to create this new add-on. He has since abandon his work an given ozzy47 his code. He has given me permission to use Christeris code to build a new garage add-on called "vbRides".

Below is a link to a folder on my server with some full size screenshots (No demo until image code finished). I've posted concept images in another thread, but everything in these are real an working features. Some things that aren't shown are the extra photo placement an HTML5 audio. You can see the images are the default nophoto ones an that is the part I have left to finish. Just handling image an audio uploads to file folder, code is already in place for showing them.

http://www.action-network.com/images...s_Screenshots/

To answer some sure questions the hot rod specific fields a coded into the script as that was what my vision was to build. However there all phrased to allow changing. The four sections can be turned off if you use it for something else an don't need all the fields.

I build it styled around the blogs look an used the style variables in the templates. Haven't tried it but that means if any skin that customized the blog will also work for vbRides. No having to edit a bunch of css for this add-on.

I have looked through the other garage mods threads an taking ideas from them to know what I should build in to vbRides. I didn't want to over do it like the one did, but if you can see anything it should have post in this thread. I'll try an keep a compiled list in this post to keep track.

Update Jan 26th: I spent some time cleaning up the code, one thing to make it work, another to make it proper for public use. In doing so I noticed the css inclusions where hacked in so that led me to switch the templates over to the GENERIC SHELL template an learn how to include css properly. Have that much done an working, also think that will help with cross vb versions if it uses the shell of it's own version.

Then I spent some night working on on the breadcrumb code an that was time consuming. It's working for now, still might need more work to make it all work like original vb code.

Getting there with adding types to additional photos, it's not updating or adding the new field. If I manually add it to the database it works. Comments was gonna get redone so I could have admin/moderator editing an delete for comments.

So bare with me as I continue to work on this, I've spent every moment outside of work an sleep working on this project. I want it done more than anyone, but also don't want a bazillion "it don't work" posts when I release it. That an I don't want version bug fixes cluttering up the install file.



Demo: http://www.action-network.com/vbrides.php
Demo Account
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

To Do List
  • Determine how to handle youtube link like where to put it.

P.S. This post belongs in the Hatchery but new coders are not aloud to post.


Update July 22: Posting a prerelease version to get initial feedback an how it installs for different people.

yeah you can set how many by user group. It's just built to handle five at once. I also want to add image type like engine, interior, to them to show with the corresponding section.

Finally had a break through with image upload an thumb photo creation which was the major one. Now I'm cleaning up that code an getting the options implemented from the admin settings. Still have to setup the new links for the images to show but that should be easy. Then I can upload a demo to my site an create a demo account for people here. Assuming no issues with permissions it'll probably be ready to send out to a few testers.

Well then guess it's time to share the link then. Has some issues to work out with it going to my live forum. But you'll get the idea an something to look at, just expect some kinks. Like the pages inherited a text align center command from somewhere. Also couldn't make up my mind about where to have the path for photos, in a stylevar or as an option. Guess I'm going with option an deleted style var, but that broke the image links. So will work on those first an then make a demo user to post here. Set unregistered to view for now atleast.

When viewing the details: http://www.action-network.com/vbride...ride&rideid=12

I think beside each Category title that is bolded, should be a thumbnail for one picture of that part of the car then when they click the little thumb it opens up via pop-up to view larger version etc... actually scratch that make the thumb on the right of the title because not many will have a nice pic of the bottom of their car on a lift/other so that way for example to the right of Interior a little thumbnail would appear and to the right of Engine and Transmission a little thumbnail of a a picture they took of under the hood.

Edit: Or even restyle the titles with CSS make a border w/ rounded corners around the image that extends over the text on the right.

Yeah it could use some visual to brake up all the text. I actually intended to add types to the photos so I could do something like that. I saw both other garage add-ons had that an it'll be smart if I do too. Shouldn't be to hard, just adding another field along side photo title. I'd probably just use the same template used for the main additional photos in the ride 1.
Thanks for the input.

Hi matthew an thanks. Guess you edited your post, but in response to the version sent to my email I know there are other garage type add-ons out there. Reference in the title was to better describe my add-on so people know what it's for. Mine is named vbrides, but in the mod itself it's referred to as just Rides.

In regard to you saying the other garage add-on works well, then you must not be familiar with it.
