Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Code Changes Additional Files  

Yes, finally I can release it here the converted version off Timeslips database for vbulletin 3.5.x. I made it as a product, try to change the file edits into plugin as best as I could but you still need to edit 2 files (optional). I can't think of an easy way to remove that but if anyone can, please pop in.

I've made the timeslips.php page XHTML valid. Of course the look has not been changed. Also made it fully phrased.

The permission is granted here

Please let me copy what EvilLS1 posted in the 3.0 hack

What does it do? This hack does a few things. First, it will add a separate "Vehicle Profile" page to your forum where your users can enter their type of vehicle, engine, tranny, tires, horsepower, best 60' time, 1/8 mile time, 1/4 mile time, upload thier timeslip and more. Once the data is entered the timeslips.php page will display the info sorted by the best times, highest trap speeds, highest horsepower #s, proof of ET, or ET brackets (user selectable).

You can also ban users from editing their Vehicle Profile. This comes in handy if you have some users who insist on entering false data into the Timeslip Database just to be funny. To use this feature, just click on the user's vehicle profile, then click "user options" and set "Can edit vehicle profile" to no. The user will still be able to edit his regular profile, but not his vehicle profile.


Features include:
*The ability to sort by:
-1/4 Mile ET
-1/4 Mile MPH
-1/8 Mile ET
-1/8 Mile MPH
-60' Time
-Horsepower
-Cars with proof of ET (actual timeslip)
-N/A cars only
-Username
-ET brackets
*Show the average ET, MPH, and HP for your site.
*Vehicle Profile (separate from user profile)
*Ability to ban users from editing their vehicle profile
*Users can upload their timeslip in the vehicle profile. (New!)
*Timeslip uploads can be disabled in the admincp. (New!)
*Admin can delete user's uploaded timeslip. (New!)
*Maximum width, height and filesize for timeslip uploads can be set in the admincp. (New!)
*Admin can set an ET for which a timeslip is required if user's ET is quicker. (New!)
*Installer

Demo:

http://www.ls6.com.au/forum/timeslips.php?
Installation overview:
Files to edit: (2)- member.php (1), functions_user.php (2), image.php(2)
Files to upload: (2)- timeslips.php, slipicon.gif
Templates to edit: (2)- USERCP_SHELL, navbar
Templates to add: 0
Phrases to add: 0

Why do I still have to edit files ?
The reasons for those editions are because you don't want users to see the timeslips profile fields in the memberlist/member profile/edit profile

and just that. So that means if you exclude those the hack will still work whatever



Installation instructions:

BACK UP EVERYTHING BEFORE INSTALLING ANY HACK

Firstly please read the file Instructions.txt file on how to install this hack.

the steps are: Import the product-timeslips.xml file. Do file and template editions. Upload files to correct folder. Then enjoy it !


I have tried all that I can by installing this hack on a fresh board and solved *almost* all the problem. But if you find any errors, please post it here (just do not duplicate things :P ).


Upgrading

I haven't had a chance to do the upgrade because I convert this for a fresh vb3.5 board. I've set up things that I think it's ready for the upgrade. I'm willing to test the upgrade on your board if anyone can give.

For the upgrade to work, you must use the latest version of timeslips which can be taken from here: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=60945



Support

I'll try my best to give supports. But please understand due to my heavy busy I may miss your post. Please understand.


Screenshots?

The shots from its 3.0 version are fine.
here's the link: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...ight=timeslips


Changes Logs

03/18/2006: version 1.1 Fully phrased the hack.
03/19/2006: fix the problem showing your current timeslip image when editing your timeslip. To upgrade simply re-import product-timeslips.xml.

03/19/2006: fixed a few bugs in this post: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...9&postcount=31 . Again to upgrade just reimport the product file.

03/20/2006: Hack version change to 1.1.3: Changed the field of field 52,53,55 to decimal (6,3). Added one more file editions into the instructions file to fix showing proper image. So bad to add another file edit but this is becaus there is no hook in image.php. this is how to do it:


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

Again to upgrade you need to import the product file again to overwrite. then do the above edit.

03/23/2006: Update: fix a JS error when submitting the new timeslip. (Thanks Sidewindr). Also the new product will attempt to remove your old vb3.0 options then add the new ones, this is for upgrading from timeslips for vb3.0 to vb3.5 . I didn't test that tho.

12/05/2006: Version 1.2 for vb3.6 released.

12/09/2006: minor fix for missing adding field50.

12/12/2006: fix the error: Fatal error: Call to undefined function build_hiddenprofilefield_cache() in C:\Program Files\xampp\htdocs\folder\admincp\plugin.php(1468) : eval()'d code on line 6

Please click install if you use this hack for updates. http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/vborg...hreadid=110717

This hack is free (why not?) but donation are welcome, my paypal is bloodynightcrawler@gmail.com . Thank you.

end of presentation, hope I don't miss anything.

There's a few bugs ..

1. The enforcement for uploading of image if under the set time does not appear to work.
2. The maximum timeslip image size is not changeable in the admincp
3. The users hopepage on the Details page shows up as the user looking at the details not the user.
4. The timeslip pic that comes up is the users avatar in my case.
5. The DECIMAL values for fields 52,53 and 55 should be DECIMAL(6,3) NOT DECIMAL(4,3) in the XML Installer File.
6. Hooks would be much better than file edits

The fix for #3 is to change the following in getvehicleinfo template..

I'm using the patched version of vB 3.5.3 and it works like a charm
(The link is in my sig if anyone cares)

It's a really simple install, which is a nice bonus too.

Thanks man!

This is only the case when viewing the details using the admin account. I saw that a while back but didn't worry about it.

Mine works just fine so thanks and great hack.

If I can be cheeky and suggest some additions -

Change the HP to BHP as opposed to Power at wheels. (or add another section).

Have another choice - Front Wheel Drive, 4 Wheel Drive, Rear Wheel Drive

Have another choice for car models, with Admin being allowed to add new Car Models in the Admin CP.

:banana:

From admincp go to "User Profile Fields" and select "User Profile Field Manager" and you can make changes to the fields (e.g. Add extra options to the Induction drop down box etc.). I also removed altitude and added a Tuner/Workshop field.

Hi folk.

#1: I don't quite understand what you mean on this. more explanations would be better.

#2: fixed

#3: fixed

#4: it can't be, you can try looking at the demo site in the above post.

#5: that was because of my lack of vehicle knowlegde. I will change that if more ppl want it.

#6: There are no other possible ways to remove those file editions AFAIK. If you can do it just point me out. I'll be greatful.

#7: I'll be more greatful if you keep the credit of timeslips on your site. Please do respect the volunteers. Thank you.


@Thanks Gary for helping me support this hack while I'm away

#3 I am using IE, it does save the info, It just doesn't let you know it did. Is there anyway to make it show a "all info saved page" then redirect to the timeslip page?

I'm found one hiccup.

When I'm trying to get to the timeslip database from CMPS, which is outside of the forum directory, it brings up
Warning: main(./global.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/xxxxxxx/public_html/timeslips.php on line 35

Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required './global.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/xxxxxxxx/public_html/timeslips.php on line 35
To fix this, change the line that you put into your navbar to:
(I've hilighted the part you need to add if you just want to add it in)

#1. I can't hardly tell what's the problem then because as for the demo site it is working without any problem for a month before it is released here.

#2. You know I hate the truth that hack need file editions. But this hack does requires 2 and those are not possible to remove AFAIK. Anyway try reading my first post for the reason why. Those editions are still optional = without it the hack still works.

#3. To see the saved message notification, make sure to enable "redirect message" on your vbulletin options.

so just to be sure, since its phrased I can change this over to use it on a 4x4 offroading site and as an example change " 60' " to "lift amount" or "1/8 Mile ET & MPH" to "tire size" etc etc ?

The option in admin CP to enforce a timeslip pic/scan if the timeslip is under say 13.00 seconds or what ever you choose... I think you're missing some of the necessary edits/checks from profile.php I am looking at them now ... but the enforcement options to stop Timeslips under the value set in the admin cp being submitted without a pic.

etc etc etc

Actually the issue appears to be in the modifytimeslip template, the java validation script appears not to run/execute properly. It should also check that if a link is given it is to a jpg or gif file not to a htm etc.

Trust me you need to change the DECIMAL values to 6,3 for those fields as there are not many people running under 9.999 seconds on the quarter mile. I'm trying to impart some vehicle knowledge here

I am unsure as well but there HAS to be a way ... some far more complex hacks manage to do it but it requires reworking of the code.

Well it would hardly be accurate would it seeing that the hack is not complete and needs extra work to get it working Lets get it all working first.

Thanks for those, I did miss the edit on image.php. but as Gary's site I did not. Anyway, added.

Another user has requested to change the decimal range, so I changed it too.
