Yes, I noticed that about the 'ol Carina E, strange! :lol:

I want to find a way to randomise the 'Featured Car' thing, it automatically takes the first added car in the database and features it, just in case everyone thought I was being bigheaded! :)

There are some obvious omissions in the car details that would be useful. I don't know how easily modified the garage plugin is...

Engine Type gives a nice list of 4-8 cylinders and Normally Aspirated vs Forced Induction. Can that list be changed to include the XM engine types, or another entry put there for engine type?

Also ORGA number would be useful for the PSA cars.

I tried the mods section but it has no entries in the Manufacturer/Product dropdowns, and if you click on the 'Not Listed? Click HERE' link I get:
For Manufacturer:

Code: Select all

PHP Parse error: parse error in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\www.Club-xm.co.uk\Forum\cache\tpl_subsilver2_garage_user_submit_data.html.php on line 159 
and for Product:
SQL ERROR [ mssql_odbc ]

[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'ORDER'. [37000]

An SQL error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact the Board Administrator if this problem persists.
The first one could be related to the subsilver theme I have selected.

Hi Rowan,

Yes the default engine list is a bit crap isn't it. I'll see about adding all the XM engine types, and it shouldn't be too difficult for me to code in an additional field for ORGA too, or convert one of the less useful ones...

I'll investigate those errors you're having ASAP tonight, just have a bit of work I need to do first.

I do belive it has some default limit of 10 cars per user, think I'll have to raise that by a factor of 10 for you! :lol:

Good to see you posting in there, should make for some interesting additions :)

I may just take you up on that offer as I'm finding it very therapeutic! And as it's keeping me busy here there's less
time on ebay so the less mischief I can get up to...
