Vik Rent Car v1.13

VikRentCar v1.13 is now available! We have introduced hundreds of new functions in this long-waited update, by completing over 90% of all the change-log requests we have collected from our clients. The support for Joomla 2.5 was dropped with the release of the version 1.11, so only Joomla 3.x users will be able to upgrade to this latest version.

How to update to the latest version?

First of all, download the Update Package from the Free Updates section of the site. The policy for the updates of this extension hasn't changed: the Update Package can be downloaded for free only if you have purchased a copy of Vik Rent Car, or a copy of the previous Updates, after May 18th 2019. This means that at today, November 2019, your Support License is still active. Those who have purchased the extension or an update before May 18th 2019, will be asked to purchase the paid version of the update (Update Package) for €29. This will give you access to free updates for another update cycle, and it will renew your Support License for another 6 months.

IMPORTANT: please remember to update (re-install) the modules of Vik Rent Car, especially the search module (mod_vikrentcar_search), or the override of your template may generate errors for your outdated version of the module. All the new modules can be found inside the folder NEW_MODULES that you will find inside the Update Package archive. Alternatively, the modules can be updated by using the native Joomla functions.
From now, all the modules will support updates via XML, through the Joomla native functions, so these problems will no longer occur with the future updates.

Upgrade Instructions

Please make sure to have downloaded the Update Package, and you will find all the instructions inside the archive. Updating to the latest version without losing any data may require a different procedure depending on the current version of Vik Rent Car that you are using.

Those who are using the v1.11 or v1.12 will be able to install the update either through the Joomla native Update Sites functions, or by using our plugin Vik Updater.

A different procedure is needed for those who are on the version 1.10. In fact, the instructions inside the Update Package, will ask you to follow the same instructions as for updating to the previous version 1.11 of two years ago. Here are the previous update instructions.

Those who are using an even older version of Vik Rent Car (1.9 or older) will have to follow other instructions to upgrade first to the version 1.10, and then to the latest version 1.13.

All the update instructions can be found inside the Update Package, so make sure to download it from the Free Updates section, or to purchase it from the Extensions Updates page.

Enjoy your new Vik Rent Car!
