Greetings.

So far, very impressed with the component and will definitely be leaving a post in the JED.

Question Re: Limiting Back-end Access to VikBooking component only.

I need site owner to access the component ONLY.

I was able to do this natively. Using Joomla 3.2.1

It doesn't look quite as nice as the VikBooking demo site because the user still has to select VikBooking from the "Components" menu, but it IS fucntional.

So...question is....how did you guys get that little "wavy VikBooking icon" on the demo site?

Did you guys pull this off in native Joomla or is it due to some 3rd-party extension?

Not a major thing...just a small question about aesthetics.

Hi,

In the administrator section of the demo website of VikBooking we have used a custom QuickIcon Plugin that prints the image and a link to the main task of the program. We haven't released the plugin but one of our clients (Max Trend - 07/25/2013 @17:26) has uploaded his own quickicon plugin for VikBooking and you can download it from the Answers Area - Extensions AddOns.

How do I Order Number before downloading the file ONLINE .INI TRANSLATOR

Hi,
The order number can be found in the email message that you received after purchasing the extension. Without a valid Order Number it is not possible to download the translations created with the Online .INI Translator.

i just bougt the component and i learned that it caches.
When i am developping the compontent (adjusting css and config) how can i shorten the cache time so i can see my changes directly?

Hi,
The CSS rules and the HTML output is not cached, only some settings of the Configuration are saved in the PHP session. If you want to shorten the session lifetime then you have to do it directly from the Joomla Global Configuration, by default it is set to 15 minutes and I guess you could set it to a couple of minutes now that you are setting up the program.
However it is not possible to have the new Configuration settings being applied immediately on the same browser because the PHP session needs to be renewed.

thanks all clear

Hi,

How would I or is it possible to charge different rates per season? For example, Summer (June 15-Sept 15)will be $125, but in Winter it is $175 etc.? If its not possible, is there any changes I can make to the php files to make this possible? Thanks for all your help!

Hi,
You can easily create different rates per season with the Special Prices that will apply charges or discounts to the standard rates of the Rates Table.
For more details please have a look at the demo website, in the administrator section you will find those two tasks.

Please advise,

Hi,
In VikBooking v1.3 the Search Parameters are in the first Tab of the Configuration task in the Administrator section. Please notice that those settings are saved in the PHP session so with the same browser you won't see the changes being applied right after but only when the PHP session will be renewed (usually after 15 minutes of inactivity).

Hi there,

I have a menu item going straight to a category with multiple properties in it, and I need a way to sort these alphabetically (not by price, which seems to be the default).

I have looked in the settings but still can't seem to find it.

Thanks in advance.

PS - great extension!

Hi,
Unfortunately it is not possible to change the ordering of the view Rooms List, there's not a setting to do so. All the results are sorted by price but we are going to add this feature in the next version of the program so that it will be possible to change the default ordering of the rooms.

Hello,

We are trying to configure payment methods for Vik Booking in our site. In paypal we have put the email in configuration but when we select Paypal in frontend it doesnt redirect us to Paypal. Also in bank transfer we have put bank details bu in frontend when we select Bank Transfer we are not able to see bank details on a pop up or a dropdown. Could you please advice?

Thanks in advance.

Hello,
From the Edit task of the payment method PayPal, make sure that the setting "Auto-Set Order to Confirmed" is disabled because the payment needs to validate the server response. The booking page in the front site will then show the "Pay Now with PayPal" button when the status is Pending.
About the payment method "Bank Transfer", the setting "Always Show Notes" must be enabled otherwise the bank details will not be displayed if the status of the booking is Confirmed.

Hi,
If the setting is enabled from the Configuration then it's because you are seeing the old Configuration settings that were saved in the PHP session. It takes around 15 minutes of inactivity to renew the php session on the same browser. You should use a different browser to see the new configuration settings being applied immediately.
Some settings are saved in the session to speed up all the functions.
Steve
Thanks that's sorted Steve

How do you stop the ability to book over a month, say if we're closed in February?

Thanks Steve

From the administrator section, task Calendar, you should make a reservation for your room/apartment and mark the Option "Close Room for These Dates".
This way the room/apartment will not be available in those dates.

Thanks saw that before I had chance to reply thanks

Vik Booking absolutely rocks! I have tried many reservation systems and even developed several of my own, but this software is fantastic. Great job! Within 30 minutes of purchasing this component, I was up and running with a complete reservation system on my test site. My client is blown away!

I need a bit of help with one small thing. In Configuration>Main Settings I input the Admin Email and then save. When the page reloads, this form field is blank. I cannot route admin emails at all. For what it is worth, the config database table does not have a parameter for admin email. This little bit of help is all that is between me and a perfectly happy client!

Great job with a great piece of software.

Mark
