Hi,
Joomla 1.7 was an "unstable" and temporary version of the new framework created after Joomla 1.5 to get to the stable-release version 2.5. We strongly recommend to not use that Joomla version because even Joomla 2.5 is no longer supported. If you really have to use an old Joomla version then you should update to Joomla 2.5. The version 1.7 is the closest one to Joomla 2.5 so you should not have any problems updating. Maybe the problem will be finding the update package because that version lasted a month at most.
You should really consider using Joomla 2.5 or 3.x. Using previous Joomla versions will cause you a lot of problems.

Hi there ;)

Quick presales question, I cant' seem to find the answer to in your demos or descriptions.

Is it possible to setup a requirement for customer to accept sales terms on each rental of an item, and not just when creating the account?

Cheers ;)

Hi,

Yes, you can do that through the Custom Fields and in the order summary page the users will have to tick a checkbox for accepting your terms before saving the order. Additionally, by clicking on the label of that field, it is possible to display a modal box window (a pop-up) that contains an article with your actual terms and conditions text.
If you take a look at the administrator section of the demo website, in the task Custom Fields, you will see how you can create this type of Custom Field.

Fantastic - thanx for the prompt reply!!

Cheers,

Hi, it is possible, from Saturday to Sunday, no rental and no return of the borrowed ware, but the rent from Friday to Monday is of course possible.
thanks for the reply

Hi,
With the latest version 1.3 of Vik Rent Items you can set some global closing days from the Configuration task. If you don't want to accept pick up or return for your ware on Saturday or Sunday then you should add those two days in the Global Closing Days with a Weekly frequency.
Those days will then be disabled in the jQuery UI Datepicker Calendar of the front site.

Hi, I'm trying to use the "item list" menu item but there's something I probably do not get right about the config: i see "STARTING FROM € 19.90 PER HOUR" but the 19.9 is the daily price, not the hourly one. What am I doing wrong.
Thanks and happy Easter everybody

Hi,
in the Items List view you can have a custom "Starting From" price and label by specifying it from the parameters of all your Items. If you don't specify a custom starting from price then the system will automatically calculate it from the prices of the Fares Table.
If you want to change the label "per hour" you simply have to edit your Items and change the parameter "Custom Starting From Text" to "per day". By default that label is set to "VRI_PERHOUR" which is a language definition. You can change it to "VRI_PERDAY" or literally "per day" if you don't need your website to be in multiple languages.
Happy Easter to you too!

Perfect. Thanks again.

Hi mate,
Is there a way to disable the time selection completely?
I just want the user to select a date for collection and a date for return with no times,
Thanks

Hi,
It is not possible to completely remove the time selection when you are not using the Time Slots because the time is required to calculate the exact duration of the rent. The only thing you can do is forcing the Pickup and Return times to a fixed time that you can define from the Configuration page. This way it won't be possible to select the time.

Hi,
That could be caused by a Javascript/jQuery conflict. When clicking on a date from the availability calendar in the Item Details page, the hourly availability for that day should be displayed unless it's disabled from the parameters of the Item. Then the calendar in the booking form should take that selected date as input.

I have installed rent items 3 zip files on a clients joomla v3 site. I then went to follow the instruction:
"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"

however I don't have a com_falang folder in the sites components folder. Should the installation have created one or do I have to make these folders manually via ftp?

Hello,
Falang is a third party extension used for translating contents that are saved in the database into other languages. If you want your website to be available in multiple languages but you don't need to translate the names and the descriptions of your Items for example, then you can use the native Joomla functions and translate any language definition with the .INI files.
For more details please have a look at the Documentations page, under the section Translations.

Is it possible to set the image size to greater than the default 200px wide. I don't have many items and seeing the detail image is important to me.

Hi,
You need to change the width from the CSS rule declared in the main CSS file of Vik Rent Items if you want your image to be wider than the default 200px.
If you used a tool like Firebug or the native Inspector of Safari or Chrome, you would easily find the exact line to edit in the CSS file.
There isn't a setting in the Configuration of the program to do such a thing as it's just a CSS rule.

Hi,
I've just installed VikRentItems and I rent for days at a time but for some reason my price shows $x per hour (Starting From $ 8.00 per Hour). What did I do wrong or how do I fix it?

Thanks!

Hi,
You just have to change the label of the "Custom Starting From Price" text. From the edit page of your item, change the default value "VRI_PERHOUR" into "VRI_PERDAY". Those values are language definitions and if you only have one language installed then you can just enter "per day".
If you leave the field "Custom Starting From Price" empty, the program will automatically calculate the daily cost of your Item.
Ceejack 1-13-14 03:18
thanks, it worked perfect and was easy!

Hi
I am very interested in this extension however I need a question answering....
All my rental items are delivered out to my customers by mail. So I need a delivery option all the time. Can this be done?
Thanks
Tom

Hi,
If you don't need to calculate a different cost depending on the distance then you can just use the Options and make them always selected. It's up to you. The only thing is that it is not possible to force the Delivery Service to be selected, only the Options can be forced to be selected. Another difference between using the Delivery Service or the Options is that the Maximum cost of an Option will be considered only on each Item while the Maximum Cost for the Delivery Service will be considered globally. Not sure if I expressed myself well but if you want to set a Maximum cost for the Delivery of all the Items selected, more than one then you should use the Delivery Service because with the Options the Maximum cost would be summed for each Item ordered.
For more details please have a look at the demo website, you can also access the administrator section.
Dan Parker 3-7-16 20:38
With recent updates to the system has this option changed? We have the same situation. All items are delivered, not picked-up. We need to force a set delivery fee.
