Hello,
As you can see from the Documentations page on our website, all the language files for the front-end have to be uploaded in the following directory of your server:
/language/es-ES/
For more details please refer to the Documentations page, section Translations.

hi admin! Need your help again to the following case:

OPTIONS >> I created 1 option for local-tax (for adults), thats works perfectly. I created one further option for local-tax (children). (children up to 14 years = free, children from 15 years = 1,50 € per day, per child). I selected on this option: „Only for Children”, 2 age-intervals (0-14 = 0.00 € / 15-18 = 1.50 €) and „costs per night”.

in the frontend-site it seems to work (total price and 2 selections underneath with the children age intervals). if i choose p. ex. 1 child / 15-18 years, the selection-field shows the right price, p. ex. 1.50 € x 7 days booking = total 10.50 €. all right until this point.

but, if i make the reservation by clicking the button, on the next step the local-tax will be multiplicated by the number of adults !?!? … i really don't find a relation between the option (with selection „only for children”) and the number of the adults in the booking ??

please, can you help me? thanks a lot…

Hi,

if the cost of the Option is being multiplied by the number of Adults then it means that the setting "Cost per Person" of your Options is enabled. If you are going to use those Options as Age Intervals then you should not have that setting enabled because you don't want them to be related to the number of Adults.

Hello,

I have a problem.. i have setup Vik booking in my existing Joomla 3 website. But when i try book a room every time i got the same message "No room is available for booking for n Nights, x Adults". What can i do to fix this problem.
Another problem i have seen is that when i choose a Check-in Date like 16.4.2014 and a Check-out Date, like 20.4.2014. the software means that Check-out Date previous than Check-in ...

Please help me.

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

the first error message that you are getting after a search is caused by the fact that the system did not find a cost for the nights of stay requested. Make sure from the Rates Table task of the back-end that your rooms have a cost for the nights you requested.
The second error message is just caused by the PHP session. You probably have changed the date format but the old format is still stored in the PHP session. Use a different browser to see the new changed being applied immediately or wait until the PHP session gets renewed.

Hi - sorry, my English is very bad. I have the latest version of VIK BOOKING. The component works very well. I have only one small problem: The calendar icon is not displayed in the frontend (right next to the input field). In the backend, the icon is displayed. What could be the cause? Thanks for your help!

Hi,
your English is good. If the calendar icon is not displayed next to the input field for selecting the arrival and departure dates, I think the calendar is not working either when the input fields get the focus and this is caused by a Javascript/jQuery conflict.
If you have a look at the Documentations page on our website, under the section Conflicts you will see that most of the times, by disabling the setting "Load jQuery" from the parameters of your modules (mod_vikbooking_search), these conflicts go away.

Hi,
From the Configuration page of VikBooking, in the Search Parameters you can define the default number of rooms, adults, children etc...
Please notice that those settings are saved in the PHP session so with the same browser you won't see the new changes being applied immediately. Use a different browser or wait until the session gets renewed.

Hi,
You can change those language definitions from the .INI language file of the component and, if you are using the search module as well, from the .INI file of the module. Those language files are located in the following directory of your server:
/language/en-GB/
en-GB.com_vikbooking.ini is the language file used by VikBooking while en-GB.mod_vikbooking_search.ini is the one used by the search module.
You can find more details in the Documentations page on our website, under the section Translations.

Hello,
It sounds like the zip file that you downloaded is corrupted because after unzipping the full package, you should be able to see a folder containing some sub-folders, one for each Joomla version.
Please re-download the archive from the same download link. A connection issue may have occurred when downloading the file.
Installing VikBooking is really simple and it's just like installing any other Joomla extension, you unzip the main archive, find the installers for your Joomla version and upload the zip files from the Extensions Manager.

Hi,
you can rename those language definitions from the .INI language file for the front-end which is the following:
/language/en-GB/en-GB.com_vikbooking.ini
There will be a lot of occurrences but with a couple of search & replace you can change all those definitions.
All the default search parameters like number of rooms, number of adults can be set up from the Configuration page in the administrator section.

Hi, just want to know if it's possible to change some paramenters in php paypal config file in VIKBOOKING?
Since I live in Italy and paypal by default shows either "the login page to pay if the user has already an account" or the "option to create an account filling the form".
I just want the "vikbooking paypal payment" redirect to let the user pay right away without creating a paypal account".
I called Paypal to ask for more info and they told me to set these paramenters in paypal express checkout:
SOLUTIONTYPE=Sole
LANDINGPAGE = Billing
Can you please tell whether or not is possible to edit a config file to insert these parameters?
Thanks... almost forgot... you component is awesome!

Hi,
I'm not sure that PayPal express checkout will post any variable back to your website and VikBooking. However, the PayPal IPN integration that VikBooking uses, should already be giving the option to the users to pay via credit card or to login onto their account. Only some countries or non-verified accounts don't have the possibility to pay via credit card (PayPal applies no restrictions to Italy).
You can modify the paypal config file of VikBooking as you said, by editing the following php file:
/administrator/components/com_vikbooking/payments/paypal.php

Good morning:

A few months ago I bought the Vikbooking extension. The component works correctly and I have no major impact.

I am trying to correctly display module vikbooking search on the main page but not displayed adaptively. I have a joomla template configured with bootstrap and I think that there is any inconsistency or jquery bootstrap. This template does not have a position-7 (standard joomla-3.X)

I need to know if I can change the CSS module "search" to suit my needs.

I tried ainsertar module within an article or another module but the calendar functions are not visible if you use this method.

Can you tell me how I can modify or adapt the module "search" to make it more customizable to my template? thanks

Hello,

It sounds like you have a jQuery conflict on your website. Any CSS issue can easily be fixed by adjusting some widths. A lot of Templates that use the bootstrap framework force the width of some select and input tags to something like 200px and this makes impossible to have two drop down select menus one next to each other if you don't change that default width. However, in the next version of the program, we will have the module forcing these widths so that there won't be any CSS conflict with any Javascript/CSS framework.
About jQuery, if the datepicker calendar is not working then you should try to disable the setting "Load jQuery" from the parameters of the module mod_vikbooking_search then everything should work correctly.
