Happy New Year to you too!
If you are using one of the latest versions of VikRentCar, you can create a new Menu Item and select the type VikRentCar - Cars List.

Сomponent VikiRentCar
Multilingual website (English, Russian, Serbian)
We have a problem with the .pdf file.
In the English version of the component everything works well. But in the Russian and Serbian (where are the Serbian capital letter like š,đ,ž,č,ć) version, question marks instead of letters.
How can I solve this problem.

Hi,
You should install the PDF font Dejavusans in case you have problems with some characters in the PDF. You will find the instructions inside the Full Package of VikRentCar that you have downloaded. You only need to upload some php files on your server and VikRentCar will use that font to generate the PDF files.
Mariika Popcheva 6-13-14 10:27
How you set VikRentCar to multilingual?
Staff E4j 6-13-14 13:09
@Mariika: please take a look at the Documentation page of VikRentCar. If you are having problems with some special characters in the PDF file then you should use the font Dejavusans.
You can find more details in the Documentations page and in the README file contained inside the package that you have downloaded.

We haven't planned the release date of the new version of VikRentCar yet but we will consider your suggestion to include a step bar like the one of VikBooking.

Hi,
The file is the following:
/components/com_vikrentcar/helpers/email_tmpl.php
Mastek 10-22-13 10:53
Hi, can you suggest how to implement there the note from/about payment methods.

I'm thinking that is function responsible for this:
echo $this->order_info['payment_info']['note'];
Staff E4j 10-22-13 11:42
Hi,
That array is not accessible in the eMail Template file. It is only available inside the classes VikrentcarPayment() that are defined inside the payment gateway php files. You should probably make a query on the database to fetch the payment method notes.
Mastek 10-24-13 13:52
Hi, Thanks for the tips, I have one another question :)
which files generates a copy of the e-mail that we get after the order by the customer ?

thank you very much for all your help
Staff E4j 10-24-13 14:00
Hi,
The email for the administrator is not generated through a template file but just through some language definitions contained in your .ini language file(s). The function responsible of the generation of the administrator email is called sendAdminMail and you can find it in the file /helpers/lib.vikrentcar.php

Hi,

VikRentCar doesn't handle language translations of contents on internal database tables. If you want to translate the contents that you have created then you need to use a third party extension like JoomFish or FaLang. VikRentCar comes with the content elements XML files for both those third party extensions which will let you translate everything. Falang works with Joomla 2.5 and 3.x.
There are a lot of things that can be translated inside VikRentCar so it is more precise to use the content elements.
You can find more details in the Documentation page, section Translations.
Jungpil Moon 9-27-13 19:51
Thanks for your comments and I installed Falang as your suggestions. however Falang does not support Joomla component data such as car descriptions in VIK Rentcar. Falang support contents, menu, module...but only components isn't included. Now I am almost panic and struggling with this issue. I need multi language site but VIK Rentcar does not support it and third party extension does not support VIK rent car
Staff E4j 9-27-13 20:15
Hello,

Falang does support VikRentCar but you need first to upload the XML content elements files via ftp on the following folder:
/administrator/components/com_falang/contentelements/

Inside the Full Package of VikRentCar you will find a zip file called Falang_Content_Elements and if you unzip it, you will find the XML files to be uploaded via ftp. You can find more details inside the README file of VikRentCar or in our Documentations page.
Jungpil Moon 9-29-13 13:39
Thanks for your great support. I've order Falang and upload XML files then I can see all element through Falang. It's solved perfectly couldn't be better!

Hi, I wanted to know whether there is any option for place booking without payment and the booking will be confirmed after the admin confirmation. Payment will not be done online and it will be collected during the collection of car.

Thanks.

Hi,

You should use the method of payment Bank Transfer to do such a thing. You can rename it into something like "Pay at the Office" and if you set the option "Auto-Set Order to Confirmed" to NO, the reservations will be in Pending status until you don't set them to Confirmed from the Administrator.
Max.mustermann 9-24-13 17:56
Hi,

i wrote an Extension or "OfflinePayment.php" file to do exact that.

Its very easy to do

Hi,

this link is not working on the joomla site im working with at the moment.

\v1.7\joomla_15_16_17_25\com_vikrentcar_1.7\com_vikrentcar_1.7\admin\admin.vikrentcar.php (1 hits)
Line 1366:

$viklink=JURI::root()."index.php?option=com_vikrentcar&act=vieworder&sid=".$order[0]['sid']."&ts=".$order[0]['ts'];

-> I think it should be "task" instead of "act".

$viklink=JURI::root()."index.php?option=com_vikrentcar&task=vieworder&sid=".$order[0]['sid']."&ts=".$order[0]['ts'];

After changing that, everything seems okay with that link :) Only want to share this with other users. By the way: Great Joomla Extension, but you should delete the German translation at your Extensions Add-Ons Site. Its terrible, really ! :D

Josh

Hi,

Thank you, we will change that immediately.
We are sorry for the German translation not being well done but we did not make it!

Regards
Max.mustermann 8-24-13 14:27
Hi,

i know you didn't make this translation. But on the "Details Site" of the car rental software is a button to the additional extensions. Your Customer will probably think , oh cool there is a german translation, no work ! And when installing the translation, he will think : well, i have to translate it by my self. I hope you're understanding what i want to tell you. My english is not the best :D

Hi,
PNG Images with transparent background should never be resized by php otherwise the transparent background will be lost. The resizing function doesn't support transparency. Your PNG images should have a white (or any other color) background, that way the background will be preserved after resizing the images.
Govanhire 6-28-13 19:19
Hi, in the car options, is there any way of changing the quantity box to a tick box or radio button? If a customer wants a sat nav for example, why would they want to chose more than 1?

Hi,
If you disable the setting "Selectable Quantity" for your Options, the users won't be able to choose more than one unit of that Option. Just a checkbox will be shown and the quantity will be 1.

Hello,
That's an input tag type image with a source of one of the suggested Paypal images. You can easily change the attribute src of that tag into another image that you want to use. You just need to edit the following file:
/administrator/components/com_vikrentcar/payments/paypal.php

There you will find the default Paypal image, just change it into the one that you want to use.
