IPB3 Garage System v3.0.0
Posted 21 April 2010 - 11:54 PM
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.

Great work Michael

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.

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.

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.
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.
