Hello,
i have vikrent car 1.9 and i've bought 1.11 update.
When i upload the files though i get an empty page. The instructions say that the update is from 1.10 to 1.11, what is proper way to update from 1.9 to 1.11?

Hello,
Inside the update package, there should be a folder called 'Problems' with another README file. Basically, that method will let you upgrade to the version 1.10 first and then you can follow the instructions to update to the latest version 1.11.
If you have a blank page for VikRentCar, then it means that the new files for upgrading to the version 1.11 are causing a fatal error. Upgrading to the version 1.10 with the old method (by installing the updater component and launching it) should solve the problem.

Dear e4j Team, as it may be seen from Your demo, car search-engine is customisable, though I could not find such an option. Please inform me how to make the module transparent, and add some style to it. (There is only one design in module's advanced settings)

I just purchased the package Vik Rent Car. Why is the mod_vikrentcar_cars missing, that I saw on other sites?

Hello,
From the page Calendar of the administrator section you should save an order for each vehicle to get the iCal Sync URL.
If you don't have any future reservation for a car then the iCal Sync URL will not be displayed. You will find that URL in the same Calendar page of the back-end.
Mauro Antonio Echavarria Q 10-14-15 19:08
Yes, I know it, the link i get is something like that: mywebsite.mx/mx/index.php?option=com_vikrentcar&task=ical&car=3&key=
But after the word "KEY" there´s not a character like you have in your demo, where there is a number, how can i get this code or number?
Staff E4j 10-14-15 20:10
The iCal secret Key is a code that should be generated automatically during the installation. From the Configuration page you can change your secret key. In your case it is probably empty.

As the days go on, (as expected) the prices are cheaper per day. That means that the eventual price of a car that costs 36 euros on the first day is 27 euros for the 7th..

Can I display the lowest price per day instead of the first day price?

Hi,
I understand what you are saying and this is pretty common among all our clients. You should use the parameter 'Custom Starting From Price' in the Edit page of each car to define the lowest price per day.
In your case the lowest fares apply for 7 days of rental or more but for some other companies, it could be from 10 days for example. For this reason we have added that field to specify a custom starting from price for each car.

Hi i'm wondering if additional charges can be added on to the rental such as baby seats/permits?

Hi,
Yes, you can let the customers add extra services for their rentals by using the Options. The Options must be assigned to your cars and they could also be configured as 'Always Selected'. This means that the customers will not be able to de-select the Options, they will be added automatically to the order.

Hello,
When you create a Joomla Menu Item of type VikRentCar - Cars List, you don't need to filter the list by Category, you can also leave the field empty so that all the cars of any category will be displayed.

Hello i would like to ask if its possible and if it is how can i have two type of fares for each car that applies in different dates.

For example i have the low season fare and the high season fare. How can implement that so if the user make a reservation in a date that is in low season see the low season prices and if the date is in high season see the high season prices

Thank you in advanced

Hello,
You don't need to have two different Types of Price for adjusting the prices to the High and Low seasons. One Type of Price will be sufficient and with the function Special Prices you can increase or decrease your default rental costs with fixed or percentage amounts on some dates/seasons/festivities of the year.
If you take a look at the administrator section of the demo website of VRC, you will see how we configured the tasks: Types of Price, Cars List, Fares Table, Special Prices.
Basically you need to have one Type of Price called something like "Rental Cost" or anything else that refers to the insurance like "Full Damage Waiver". Then from the page Fares Table you will be able to enter your default rental costs for either the Low, Middle or High seasons, this is up to you.
Once you have configured the default costs, with the Special Prices you can increase or decrease those values on certain dates of the year. This way your clients will see the prices adjusted automatically depending on the dates they choose for Pickup/Drop off.

Hello i would like to ask two questions

First question is how can i show in the car list the short description of the car and not the full Description.

I put text in the short description but i still see the full the same problem i see in your page too.

The Full description i want it for the car details page.

Also i want to ask how can i disable the calendar in the car details page i want my cars to be available for every date even if they are booked.

Thank you in advanced

Hello,
With the new version 1.9 of VikRentCar, the small description field will be printed in the Cars List page as well as in the Search Results page. The long HTML description text will be displayed in the car details page just like how you would like it to be. If this is not happening to you then it's probably because you are using one of our Templates that has an override for those Views. Please refer to the newsletter/Update download page to see how you can update your Template as well. If you have done some modifications and do not want to lose them then you should rename the override folder so that it won't be used anymore. This is the folder that should be renamed:
/templates/TEMPLATE_NAME/html/com_vikrentcar/
Rename com_vikrentcar to anything else like "old_com_vikrentcar".

If you do not want to display the availability calendars at all then you should change the configuration setting "Number of Calendars" and set it to 0. However, your cars will need to have a high number of units available otherwise they won't be available on the same dates if they have been booked before. I guess you can just set the Units field to a very high value for all your cars.
Regards.

Hi!

I'm having a problem with the currency. I've set the currency in the configuration to "SEK", and the prices are displayed correctly when i view the website. But in the confirmation-mail that the customer gets the currency is "EUR". How do I change it?

Hi,
Don't worry about that, it's only because the old currency symbol is still saved in the PHP Session. If you used a different browser then the currency symbol would be displayed as "SEK".
In the new version of the program we will add a button to flush the old configuration settings so that any change to the Configuration will be applied immediately.
