Is there a place to set the zoom level for the location maps in the configuration tab? If there is, I'm not finding it. Thank you for any clues. By the way.. we LOVE vik rent items!

Hi,
The zoom level is automatically calculated and set through a Javascript function of Google Maps depending on the coordinates of your locations. There isn't a setting in the Configuration of the program to set a custom level. If your locations are pretty close in the map then the zoom level might be a little higher than what it should be. The map is centered automatically by a Javascript function as well so the only way for changing the zoom level is editing the Javascript code of Google Maps.

I need to get this symbol "€" changed to a "$" instead in the admin area for adding an item. where can I find this?

Hi,
You can change the currency symbol from the Configuration of the program in the administrator section. Please notice that some configuration settings are saved in the PHP session and it usually takes around 15 minutes of inactivity to get renewed. So if you don't see the symbol changing immediately, it's because the PHP session is still reading the old value.

Thank you so much for the quick response! I am excited to start using this component!

Hello,

If you have changed the email address for the administrator from the Configuration then maybe the old value is still being used as it is stored in the php session and it usually takes around 15 minutes to get renewed. Try using a different browser or check the spam folder. The email messages for the admin are sent through the mail transport agent of your web server so the Mail Settings of the Joomla Global Configuration are not used, they are used only to send the email message to the customer.

I have a problem with locations not showing the map.
It shows a box but no map. I used these coordinates 56,10898, 8,42299
on this site http://www.bareuther.net/udlejning/index.php/kort.
How do i get it to show the map?

Hi,
The coordinates must be formatted with a dot so you should change the latitude and the longitude into this:
56.10898 and 8.42299
If you search for your locations on Google Maps, Google will place a marker on the map, by right-clicking on the marker and then on "What's here?", Google will show the latitude and longitude values of your location and they are formatted with a dot. You had them formatted with a comma so that caused a Javascript syntax error.

Thanks it worked, I used right click in g-maps, but used the option LongLat-marker (translatet from danish) and it separate with a comma :-) Thx.for quick reply!

Hi,
That message is displayed when the program was not able to collect any email address from the Custom Fields that you had to fill in before saving the reservation. Make sure from the Administrator section, task Custom Fields that you have one required field checked as "is eMail" otherwise VikRent Items will not know the address of the user to which the order email should be sent to.
The administrator account gets a different email message and you just need to specify the address from the Configuration of the program.
Steve
Thanks thats solved it I had 3 fields ticked as email! oops! Thanks for a prompt reply

hello, I installed these 3 files on joomla 2.5 site:

com_vikrentitems.zip
mod_vikrentitems_search.zip
mod_vikrentitems_summary.zip

without any problems

Now, I have to copy these files into the folder as you explained:

Falang_ContentElements.zip - Content Elements Files for FaLang, unzip it first, then copy all the files into your / administrator / components / com_falang / contentelements / folder via FTP

  but I find no folder "com_falang" in my site

Hello,

Falang is a third party extension to translate contents that are saved in the database. If you don't find that folder then it means that you don't have Falang installed on your Joomla.
You don't need it unless you want to translate the names and the descriptions of your Items into other languages. You can find more details in our Documentations page, Translations section.
Maxil71
sorry, another question, in my site I just need a Language Italian, I need to translate the same Falang or not?
Staff E4j
If you only need to have the program in Italian then you don't need Falang, you can just translate the program into Italian with a .ini language file. Falang is only needed if you want your website to be multi-language and if you want the contents of the database to be translated into other languages (names and descriptions of the Items for example).
Please have a look at the documentation page, there's an article called "How to translate extensions into other languages" under the section Translations. That is what you have to do to translate the extension in Italian.

I thank you for the quick service
Maxil71
here I am with another question, how do I get to change the language of the text of published articles (example: Calendar, Available, Partly Reserved, Not Available , Hourly Availability for the day)? thanks
Staff E4j
Those definitions are all inside the .ini language file so you just have to change them.
Waypoint
When i'm inserting a picture it doesn't save it.
I tried Firefox and IE.
Any suggestions?

Hello,

Please check the writing permissions of both the folders of VikRent Items:
/components/com_vikrentitems/...
/administrator/components/com_vikrentitems/...

The problem must be related to the permissions, not to the browser that you are using as the file upload works with any browser. Setting the permissions to 755 on both the directories and all the sub-directories should fix that issue.
Waypoint
Thanks for your answer, but everything is "open" otherwise I even couldn't save the item. I can add a picture in the textbox, but not in "Item Image" and "More Images".
Staff E4j
The images inside the description are saved as text strings in the database. Also, those images have already been uploaded and they are inside the folder images/
The permissions problems that you have instead are in those two folders listed above.

Hi
Is there a way to allow drop off time longer than 24hr without charging the customer for an extra day rent?

Thank you.

Hi,
In the Configuration of the program there's a setting called "Hours of Extented Gratuity Period". By default is set to 0 so 1 day and 2 hours of Rent are considered as 2 days. If that setting was set to 2, the system would charge the user for 1 day of Rent.
In case you want to charge the users for those 2 extra hours then check the Extra Hours Charges in the Fares Table.

Hi
Can you please tell me how i can add the Cash on Delivery as a payment option?
Thank you

Sign up or Sign in to post a message

Staff E4j
Hi,
I think you should just rename the payment method Bank Transfer if you are not using it. Instead, if you are already using it, just copy the php file /administrator/components/com_vikrentitems/payments/bank_transfer.php into the same folder as cash.php. That payment processor doesn't validate any server response and that's what you need to create the payment option Cash on Delivery. Then from the setting "Auto-Set Order to Confirmed" of the payment record decide if the reservations should be considered as Confirmed or not when Cash on Delivery has been chosen.
