Is it possible to link to a specific takeaway menu from another page? I have a grid of images for the different parts of the menu and I need to link each one to its section of the takeaway menu

Hello,

the take-away page of VikRestaurants can be filtered by menu by using the following URL:
index.php?option=com_vikrestaurants&view=takeaway&takeaway_menu=[ID_MENU]

The [ID_MENU] value must be replaced with the unique ID of the take-away menu.

To retrieve the ID of a menu, you have to edit it in the back-end and check the URL, which will be structured as follows:
index.php?option=com_vikrestaurants&task=edittkmenu&cid[]=[ID_MENU]

Hello,

yes it is, there are 3 different ways to reserve tables but only one can be used.

As you can see from the following link:
http://www.extensionsforjoomla.com/answers-area/knowledge-base/vik-restaurants/configuration/restaurant/reservation-requirements
you are able to allow customers to choose "table & room", only the" room" or "nothing".

In your case, you should open the "Restaurant" configuration of VikRestaurants and set the "Reservation Requirements" setting to "Choose Nothing", so that the table and the room will be assigned automatically following the size of the party.

Remember to press the "Renew Session" button after saving the changes to apply the new settings immediately.

hi - I directed the menu item to the take away reservation form, but can only select 1 menu. I would like to have all menus with the select box on top (like on your demo site). How can I configure this? Do I need an addition module or other extension?

Hi Hans,

to publish all the take-away menus created, you have just to not choose a specific menu from the filtere of the page settings, so that VikRestaurants displays all the published menus.

When the restaurant is open and customers are coming in without a reservation how do I change the table to not available? Do I have to make a reservation myself?

Hello,

yes it is, if you need to block a table manually, you have just to create a new reservation from the back-end.

The fastest way to create a new reservation is from the Table Maps view, where you have to fill in date, time and people to see the availability map in real time.
By clicking on the Reserve link above a free table (green border) you will be redirected to the "Reservation Creation Mask", where you can (or not) insert also the details of the customer.

Hi,

if you are talking about the sections and products of the restaurant's menus, you can re-order them by selecting a single menu and clicking on the "Edit Ordering" button. You can find this button in the Menus list page (back-end).

is it possible to reword certain things in vik restaurant?

For example on the demo after placing an online order for take away it says reservation confirmed and I would like that to say something different.

Hi,

all the text you see in VikRestaurants can be easily changed from the language files of the component.

The language file for the front-end of VikRestaurants is located in:
/language/en-GB/en-GB.com_vikrestaurants.ini

This file is used to translate English in other languages, but it can be also edited to change some definitions or words.

Hi!
I have successfuly install the de-DE language pack for the frontend and the cart. Now I have copied the file de-DE.com_vikrestaurants.sys.ini into /administrator/languages but this does not work. What's wrong here?

Please help,
Thanks Christian

Hi,

the file de-DE.com_vikrestaurants.sys.ini doesn't translate the whole administrator of the program.
This file contains only the translations relative to the names and the descriptions of each front-view.

If you want to translate the administrator of VikRestaurants you have to translate the file:
/administrator/language/de-DE/de-DE.com_vikrestaurants.ini

In example if you try to publish a new view in the front-end as menu item, you will see the available menu items of VikRestaurants translated in German. Otherwise if you are not able to see these translations, probably there is a syntax error in your .ini file.

Hi Stefano,

if the order is going automatically to CONfIRMED, probably you configured the PayPal gateway with the option "Set Order Auto Confirmed" enabled.
You should disable that option to have all the orders booked with PayPal with status PENDING.
The orders will be set to CONFIRMED automatically when the customers complete the payment through the hosted page of PayPal.

Hello,

if you want to search a reservation by customer name, you have just to insert the name in the Key Search field above the list of the reservations. Also, press enter to submit the form and filter the list.

What is the Return URL for PayPal which needs to be entered into the PayPal Account set-up? And do we set the "Payment Data Transfer" in the PayPal account to ON??

Thanks

Heiko

Hello,

you don't need to specify none of these values because the PayPal payment is completely dynamic.
You have only to enable the IPN parameter from the configuration, which should be already ON by default.
