Posted 12 March 2015 - 08:49 PM

As part of the upgrade to IP.Board 4, I plan on integrating both application into 1 application. Which will most likely be named "Collections" and support an importer for Garage data. I'm looking for feedback or any concerns users of these products have so I can make sure this is included in the release.

 

Why?

The Collections was originally a fork of the Garage. It was made due to the demand in the Garage but for adding items that were non vehicle specific. Although it was a good idea at the time, the extra time and complications from maintaining 2 separate applications that essentially do the same thing becomes an issue. I want to take the opportunity during the upgrade to IP.Board 4 to make an application that can easily serve both apps

 

New Installs

A fresh installation of this application will function like the Collection app currently does but post install you'll be able to better control the various language and urls used throughout the application. Right now I envisage a central page that can be used to change the name of the app, reference for items, categories, mods or images and also allow you to change the url of the application as well.

 

Upgrading IPB 3.x Collections

The upgrade from IPB 3.x will function like normal and you'll notice no difference in the features of the Collections application.

 

Upgrading IPB 3.x Garage

During the upgrade from IPB 3.x you'll be able to import previous Garage data and the upgrade process will automatically update the various references in the application to suit display of vehicle data. This includes the language and urls of the application. The imported Garage will basically look and feel like the existing Garage.

 

IPB 3.4.x Versions

Customers of both applications will be merged into 1 product subscription and the previous IPB 3.x versions of both the Garage System and Collections System will be available for download. They will both be offered for download as extra downloads until IPB 3.4 becomes end of life and both applications can be used like normal.

Thank you for maintaining this product!

 

Will collections feed data be available via IP.Pages?  That would be really vital for my particular site.

I don't have access to IP.Content so wouldn't know for sure. But given the recent improvements in IPB4, I believe it should be able to utilize the Collections app content router to display a list of items. I've also got widgets included for latest items, mods, comments and images.

No time frame yet but still being worked on. It's a little more complex than the other apps so is taking a bit longer then I thought.

I'm holding off on updating to v4.0 until you get the Garage hook finished. So any idea how much longer you have on the Garage hook? 

 

Thanks for maintaining these!

 

All the best,

John

It's hard to provide an estimate right now but this is a top priority and I'm putting in a lot of time to get this wrapped up now.

The Collections app will now be used and allow you to import your Garage data into it.

 

 

Upgrading IPB 3.x Garage

During the upgrade from IPB 3.x you'll be able to import previous Garage data and the upgrade process will automatically update the various references in the application to suit display of vehicle data. This includes the language and urls of the application. The imported Garage will basically look and feel like the existing Garage.

More details on the full upgrade path for the IPB3 Garage app can be found here - http://www.devfuse.c...-garage-system/

If you've got a previous active Garage license, you get access to the IPB4 Collections app for free.

I do Mike. Thanks for responding. I will look at that and send it to IPB.

Do I remove the mod before they upgrade it from 3 to 4

We want to put on our site IPB 4xx is it worth it?
 
Or is it better to use the older one? We do not want to regret it later.
  I apologize for writing here, I can not create a new topic

IPB 3.4 will be made end of life soon so would recommend IPB4 going forward.
