Really impressed with the compoenent.

As I am renting an apartment and not rooms I would like to remove/hide the rooms and the number of adults per room from the search form, how do I do this please?

Hi,

Unfortunately for the moment it is not possible to set custom values to the number of rooms or to the number of adults in the search form unless you don't edit the php code. This will be possible in the next version of VikBooking that will be released in October. The Updater will be free and it won't make you lose your data.

I am looking to achieve the same goal. Has the update been implemented that will allow me to do this?
Staff E4j
@Scott: in the Configuration page, under the Search Parameters you can define the default number of "Rooms" that the search form will display, you should set that value to 1. The same thing works for the number of Adults and Children per Room, you can define any value from the Configuration page, first Tab.

Hello,

Is it possible to change the word "room" every where it is mentioned (VikSearch, text message, email, etc. ) into "apartment" or any other word? If not, this would nice to have as a general settings. Indeed, some people might have small independent apartment in their hotel or BB.

Hello,

That can be done through the English .ini language file. Just replace every occurrence of "room" into "apartment". Do the same thing to the other language files in case you have uploaded some translation.

When first opening my menu item "Apartment Overview", the search module (only available on that page) does not show the two calander selecting images behind the check-in and check-out field! It isn't but after clicking the search button, these become visible (and perfectly useable). Any idea how this may be solved??

You probably have a Javascript/jQuery conflict on that page where the search module is published. You should check the error console of your browser to see what is happening, probably another module, plugin or the template is causing a conflict that makes the jQuery UI Calendar not render properly.
We have a documentation online called Conflicts that explains how to fix these Javascript issues so you might want to have a look at it.
Alternatively, a lot of our customers have been using a third party plugin called Easy jQuery that fixes Javascript/jQuery conflicts between modules, plugins and the template. You can find it in the Joomla Extensions Directory.
Bart Van Kerckhoven
Thanks for the real fast reply. The template I'm using is your Hotel template (just to minimize any possible conflicts) and there are no other modules active on the page (except for the Footer). Will let you know how that Easy JQuery went!
Staff E4j
Ah okay then you don't need that third party plugin, you might need it in case you will install other modules that use jQuery on your Joomla website.
If you are using one of our templates then just go to the Module Manager and from each module (mod_vikbooking_search, mod_vikbooking_pricefilter, mod_vikslider etc..) disable the setting Load jQuery.
Bart Van Kerckhoven
Yep, that did the trick!!
Thanks a lot, never had such a fast and correct support ever!

Take a look at the site www.pousadahotelcanoas.com.br and notice that when the total price has more than 4 digits, for example R$ 1.250,00, the icon with the number of guests changes position. Try to book a room for 20 day with four persons in it and you'll see it. I guess the field size should be increased.

Hello. Very good product, congratulation.
I have just one question.
How can I have all the rooms displayed under the "Rooms List" page automatically taken from VikBooking, as it happens in your template?
I only get them if you fill in the form of the availability, but I would like to have all of the rooms under one page, the "Rooms list" page. How to do that? Thank you

Hello,

Thank you for the compliment. If you want to have all the rooms listed in one page then you need to create a new Menu Item from the Administrator section of your site and when you are asked to select the link type, choose VikBooking - Rooms List. Then from the right of the page you will be able to apply a category filter (Joomla 2.5, 3.x), leave it empty for showing all the rooms.

How can I configure the email order destination? In global configuration --> Amin Settings --> "Admin e-Mail" I have an email that's not the one that receive the orders. I receive the email orders in the Joomla's admin email, but I want to have a different email for the orders. It's possible?

Hello,

You should set the admin email address from the Configuration task of the program in the Administrator section. If you change it from the Global Joomla Configuration then the program will not notice it.

Hi,

i 'm new of this extension.
i have just installed it:
com_vikbooking....zip
mod_vikbooking_...zip

but i don't understand this: Unzip it and upload the xml files onto the content elements folder of your Falang.
Where i have to put this file? in which folder?
Please help me.

Thanks
Edoardo

Hi,

If you don't have Falang installed on your Joomla then you don't need to upload the xml content elements. Those are not required for VikBooking but for that third party extension that lets you translate contents like names and descriptions of your rooms into other languages.
The component instead can be translated into other languages by creating a .ini language file.
For more details please have a look at the documentation Translations.

Hi,

Love the module. it looks great and works perfectly with the template we have. we just have cone concern with the price layout. after pressing search, it proceeds to selection of rooms, there are problems with the layout when the prices becomes higher like when there are 5-digits or above prices. How can we configure that?

Thank you!

Hi,

That sounds like a CSS issue. Probably the margins of the price are making the selection box move a little. You should use a tool like Firebug to see what is happening and what you should change in the CSS file of VikBooking or in the one of your Template.
Geoff Ward
ok, we'll check on that. thanks!

Hello,

I switched from another extension to vikbooking and it is really GREAT. Than you very much for this excellent extension.

Everything is working fine but I have 2 questions.

1. Can we hide "children" as we only charge persons (not matter wether they are adults or children)?
2. Hot to setup a special rate for certain number of nights? Example: Customers stays 10 nights and he will be charged only 9 nights.

Thanks in advance and Best Regards

Sabine

Hello,

We are happy to hear that. About your questions:

1. There's not such a setting for disabling the children select so you should manually edit the search module or the search view of the component and just comment or remove the lines of code that compose the select tag for the children.

2. I don't think you should use the Special Prices because, as you have seen, they need either some dates or some days of the week in order to be applied. You could use an override for 10 nights and set a discount but I think the best solution is putting the same cost to 9 nights of stay as 10.
