Hi,

In frontend of vikbooking step 3
There is a "Check-in on the 11th of May" and "Check-out on the 12th of May".

But in Chinese, they are upset.
see image https://www.dropbox.com/s/mbglr8rn0yr1t9y/cmsart20140408014037.png

there should be "May 11th" and "May 12th"
How can I change the month and day?

Thanks & Regards,

Jerry

Hi,

The language definitions that print the labels "Check-in on the 11th of May" and "Check-out on the 12th of May" already use wildcards for the php function sprintf() but the first parameter passed to that function is always the day of the month.
If you open the .INI language file you will see that the language definition VBCHECKINOUTOF contains the following string:
%s of %s
where the first wildcard (%s) will be replaced with the day of the month and the second instead with the name of the month. I think your Chinese translation should compose the sentence in a different way because Joomla doesn't support a different use for the function sprintf() depending on the language used.
You can find the php code used in the following file around the line 107:
/components/com_vikbooking/views/showprc/tmpl/default.php
Lacostechiu 4-8-14 02:18
the file line 107
/components/com_vikbooking/views/showprc/tmpl/default.php

<?php echo JText::sprintf('VBCHECKINOUTOF', vikbooking::sayDayMonth($infocheckin['mday']), vikbooking::sayMonth($infocheckin['mon'])); ?>

replace to

<?php echo JText::sprintf('VBCHECKINOUTOF', vikbooking::sayMonth($infocheckin['mon']),vikbooking::sayDayMonth($infocheckin['mday'])); ?>

is that correct ?
Staff E4j 4-8-14 10:42
Yes, that's correct but the first wildcard replaced will always be the name of the month with any language. The replacing order of the function sprintf() cannot be different in some languages so that is why changing the logic of the sentence in English is the best solution. In English for example you could change the language definition
VBCHECKINOUTOF="%s of %s"
to something like this:
VBCHECKINOUTOF="%s %s"
so that the date would be formatted like this:
"May 11th", which is correct in English and would make sense in Chinese as well.
Lacostechiu 4-8-14 17:48
That works !!
Thank you very much!

Thanks & Regards,

Jerry

Hi,
the check availability booking module is the mod_vikbooking_search and that comes with VikBooking as well as the module price_filter.
A module to show an availability calendar for specific rooms will be available in the next version of the program as we have received a lot of similar requests from our clients that would like to have a module that reproduces a similar result to the Room Details page where the calendars for the availability are displayed.
Will Patterson 3-13-14 13:57
Thanks for the update, have you got an estimate on the release of the next version?, as i would need this module before switching a existing site over to Vik Booking as it already has and uses this functionality, thanks...
Staff E4j 3-13-14 14:08
I understand. Unfortunately we don't have a date yet but we are working on it already. However, a free Update will be released as well so that everybody will be able to upgrade to the new framework.

Hi,

What I really like to see is some kind of a Request form. Something where people can request a room without binding.

Hi,

If you don't want to have any transaction online but just want to collect requests then you should either unpublish all the payment methods or set up properly the ones that are not linked to a bank gateway.
For example the pre-installed payment method "Bank Transfer" which is a flexible payment that can be renamed into anything you want, like "Get a Quotation", will let you decide the status to be applied to the bookings that can be Pending or Confirmed. In case you won't use any payment method then the status of the bookings will always be Confirmed and the rooms will become unavailable on those dates so maybe you don't want that to happen.
Otherwise you could use another payment method available which is the Offline Credit Card that is only meant to collect the credit card information on the site without making any transaction.
With the Custom Fields you can ask for any kind of information that will have to be filled in from the request form before saving the booking.

Hi,
I have a question regarding Falang and notification email. Let's say my website will be in French as main language, but English and Spanish languages will be available.
For instance, a customer chooses to use the website in English language, will he get his email in English or the emails would remains in French everytime? Thanks.

Hi,
You only need to use Falang if you want contents that are saved in the database like the names and the descriptions of your rooms. For the rest you can use the native Joomla functions and translate any language definition by creating a .INI language file. Please refer to the Documentations page for more information.
If your website has 3 languages, French, English and Spanish then the email sent to the customers will be in the current active language. With the Joomla native Language-Switcher module your users will be able to select their language and you only need to have a .INI language file for each one of those languages for VikBooking.

Hello, I would like to translate the contents of VikBooking because I have a multilingual site.
I realized that we could use Falang and needed to put an XML file VikBooking in administrator / components / folder com_falang / contentelements. But where do I find this XML file VikBooking? What shall I do? Thank you for your answer!

Hello,
You can find the Content Elements for Falang inside the full package that you have downloaded after purchasing the extension. The file is called Falang_ContentElements.zip and it contains the xml files that need to be uploaded via ftp.
You should be able to find the Content Elements of VikBooking also on the website of Falang.
Microzone 2-4-14 14:00
Perfect, thank you very much! It's super easy finally. Your extension is really great!
Richard Knight 1-27-14 12:21

Hi,
You can export the bookings from the administrator section of VikBooking, task Current Orders.
This function was introduced in VikBooking v1.3.

Dear, after creating a menu item type bikbooking-roomlist I can see the picture for the room I have created. But when I click the details not all pictures are shown. These only show up after you entered the checkin-check-out days. How can I see all the pictures when I click on details? Also the arrows are not shown. I need to click on each picture individual. How can I get the arrows to showup? Many thanks in advance. Best Regards Dirk

Hi,
If the Room Details page is not displaying the pictures or the navigation arrows correctly then it's because you have a Javascript conflict on your page and the jQuery image gallery cannot be rendered. The same conflict causes the images to be opened in a separate tab.
You need to disable the setting "Load jQuery" from the parameters of your modules to fix this issue. For more details please have a look at the Documentations page.

Hi. is it somehow possible to put some price for the children, e.g. children under 2 years free of charge and children between 2-16 years -50% of adult price?

Hi,
With the Options you can add charges depending on the age of the Children. Just create a new Option, mark the checkbox "Only for Children" and add two intervals, for example:
- Under 2 Years Old
- Between 2-16 Years Old
Set a cost for each of those options but costs cannot be percentage values based on the cost per Adults, they have to be a float/integer value to be added to the total amount.
Then assign the Option to the Rooms that should apply this charge in case there are Children and in the front site a drop down select menu will be presented every time there is a Child in a Room that has that Option.

Thanks for your answer, it was easier than i thought.

Hi,
Yes, VikBooking can be integrated with any kind of payment gateway. You can extend the payment methods by creating a PHP file to send the payment information to your bank gateway and process the response. In the Documentations page you will find an article that shows how the payment framework works and you can use the pre-installed payment methods like PayPal as example/reference to build your payment gateway.

Hi,
Inside the full package that you have downloaded you will find the installer for the component and for the search module for each Joomla version.
