Worked on a new navigation today (pic below), I've moved the garage stats to below the navigation, it was taking up a large part of the garage before for essentially only several characters of information. The new detailed statistics page has also been added.

Also just finished a default image feature, so members can set a default image for their vehicle, this image will then be the default thumbnail when displayed with that vehicle. For those upgrading with existing vehicles, no default image will be selected, so I've included a rebuild tool. This will set the first image uploaded as the default image if one is not selected.

Will be posting more screenshots later.

Finished the default and unreal portal blocks. I've changed them a bit to use the style the sidebar block has. But they also include their own seperate settings if you wanted to change them back to a 1 random vehicle setup. I've also expanded on the thumbnail settings, there will now be 3 classes of thumbnails and better control for fixed thumbnail dimensions.

I set aside this week to work on the admin side of the garage. Every page has been modernized and optimized using IPB3 new code structure. As well as the new type ahead javascript function, so the member names can be entered instead of entering the member id and member name. A search option for vehicles and mods was a popular request and this has been added, so you can more quickly search for a members vehicle by typing in their display name. Also added is use of IPB3 drag and drop ordering for currencies. I've also added descriptions where possible for each field, this should hopefully clear up some confusion until I get documentation ready.

Here are a few pics to illustrate the improvements made.

I've still got a bit more work to do with the tabs/custom fields but apart from that the admin side of the garage is done. Provided IPB3.1 beta is not released next week, I've set aside next week to complete the linked make and model dropdown option. Once a I get this done and tie up a few loose ends, the garage should be ready for a public beta.

Spent extra time on the custom fields, improving the code and moving it over to use IPB3 prototype. Drag and drop ordering has been added for tabs and fields. And a new Main tab has been added for those who want to add fields into the main vehicles page rather than a new tab.

Thank you Michael, this is looking great.

So now that 3.1 beta vs2 is out, will this be compatible?

There will be some differences. Like different file locations for search, portal and report plugins. I will try to have v3 of the garage have these fixes included by the release date.

Featured Vehicles

One feature often requested was a car of the week/day/month. I was going to add just a setting where you would enter the vehicle id to display but I've expanded on this a bit and introduced a new "Featured Vehicles" area. As seen in the screenshot below, the Featured Vehicles will allow you to select multiple vehicles to feature. (Recommended maximum of 3 otherwise the box won't fit.) It will also include a featured vehicles history page for previous featured vehicles that are now de-listed from appearing on the main page.

Posted Image

The adding of featured vehicles will be done through the admin cp with the option to add comments for each feature you add. These comments will appear on the featured vehicles history page. For example, if you wanted to add Car of Week 1, Car of Week 2 as you add a featured vehicle. From the admin cp you can also de-list a featured vehicle from displaying on the main page, therefore limiting it to the featured vehicles history page or remove it. I've tried to make this as customizable as possible to accommodate those who want to just feature vehicle or a car of the week.

Makes and Models

I've added the admin cp pages for managing the makes and models. Pretty basic setup, not much to see.

First Alpha Test

I've just got the featured vehicle history page and a few changes to the comment system to complete. I'll be putting up a public demo on my test board within 5-7 days. The first few betas won't include the linked make/model dropdown feature as I need to populate the database with test vehicles. This is required as a suitable tool will need to be created in order for current garages using the current method of entering the make and model to be able to move over to the new make/model dropdown selection. That is of course optional and the default setting will probably remain entering rather then selecting.

I'll be starting private testing immediately, for those who are interested, please PM me.

98% of development is complete but I do still need beta testers. If you have some free time, please register your interest here or PM me for the test board login details.
