Hello, I have a problem with the datepicker in frontend.

I do not work, a JS Error is shown: Uncaught ReferenceError: lalsch is not defined.

comes from "isRTL: lalsch,"

Gantry Framework Based Template on J3.3, php 5.5

Thanks

Holger

Hello,

yes, the problem is given from the translation of the language key:
VRJQISRTL="false"
The value of this field is used to set the direction of the calendar and the value have to be true (arabic) or false (standard).

To fix the javascript error you have simply to open the language files
/language/de-DE/de-DE.com_vikrestaurants.ini
/language/de-DE/de-DE.mod_vikrestaurants_search.ini

and change the line:
VRJQISRTL="lalsch"

into:
VRJQISRTL="false"

First of all, great component, however I am trying to set the Working shifts and one of our working shifts is crossing over into the new day (6PM to 1AM) but when I try to create this, the component tells me that the time is invalid.

How can I fix this?

Thanks
Heiko

Hello,

the system is displaying this message because theoretically 1AM is earlier than 6PM, so the system cannot validate the shift.

If you want to set this up, you simply need to create a working shift from 6:00PM to 11:45PM and another one from 12:00AM to 1:00 AM.

Remember that all the shifts are in the same day and they will be ordered by "From Hour", so this last shift (0AM - 1AM) will be placed as first.
Heiko
In general from a time perspective that makes sense, however from an actual operational perspective that makes unfortunately no sense at all. Any chance there is a different way to get this into a single shift ?

I cannot set a closing date. The system just keeps letting me place a reservation. It also is not sending out any email to the admin either.

Hello,

the program is still retrieving the old settings because they are stored in the PHP session.

When you change something from the configuration, it is recommended to press the Renew Session button to apply all the changes immediately to the logged in users.

Otherwise you could change browser or wait for 15 minutes of inactivity.

Hi,

you can put a description for the takeaway page from the global configuration of VikRestaurants, under the Take-Away section. You have just to edit the text area field called Front Notes.
To see immediately the text, remember to press the Renew Session button after saving or to change browser.

To increase the size of the dropdown you have to open the file /components/com_vikrestaurants/assets/css/vikrestaurants.css and set the width attribute of #vrtkselectmenu, like:

#vrtkselectmenu {
width: 300px;
}

The text about the accepted zip codes which you have seen is a Custom Field of type SEPARATOR. Once you have created it, you have just to ordering it.

The coupon form in the front-end is displayed only when you have at least one valid coupon stored on your website. You have just to create one and the form will appear.

Hi,
I'm trying to configure the online order component of vik restaurants. After following all instructions to make the configuration settings, when i try to do a test order, i get a message "Sorry, but we cannot accept takeaway reservations any longer. Please select a different date" soon after i select a date. I get this error for any date in the future.
The restaurant is operated on shift mode. Does the component allow orders to be accepted only during the time the restaurant is operational? or am i missing any config setting?

Thanks.

Hi,

the available times of the take-away are given from the working shifts created from the back-end.

If you have already created the working shifts for your restaurant, you have also to create them for the take-away.

As you can see the working shifts have a parameter called "group" which have to be Take-Away.

Hi, Is there any reason why the Take-Away Cart doesn't Follow Page Scroll - If it is because my template doesn't follow the css rule; what can I do to make it work?

Hi,

the cart module is only following the page on our demo website with the template Restaurants that controls it via jQuery and css. With a different template you should add a module class suffix to it with a position: fixed; and publish the cart module as the last one in that position.

Hi there,

I am setting a restaurant on WAMP locally. Although I uploaded a floor plan, tables maps show no image. What could be a possible problem? Thanks.

Hi, the image of the room is only displayed in the front-end when a customer chooses a table.

Hi !
I would like to know how to put delivery information in the emails templates.
Because for the take away, there is no indications for that in the emails.

Thanks

Hi,

in the email_template.php file there is a parameter {customer_info} that writes all custom fields collected from the Takeaway Order like Full Name, email, phone, address, zip code, and delivery notes.

Just make sure you are collecting some custom fields for the take-away. As you know custom fields can be of two types: Restaurants or Take-Away.
Heiko Ihmels
How can I display the custom fields individually in the PDF Invoices?

Hello,
1.) Just installed the component on Joomla 3.2 and created a room with two tables. On the tables map, there is only one table visible. Why? Both tables are in the same room.

2.) Is it possible to hide step2 for the customer in the front end? If I only have one room it doesn't make much sense to have this step.

3.) Can you specify how many minutes before the desired reservation time the reservation is impossible? For instance it doesn't make much sense to reserve a table in 5 Minutes. 30 minutes in advance would be great.

thank you and best regards

Hi,
1) When you create a table from the Tables Task, it is generated with the default position (x=0; y=0), so all the tables are one over each other. You just have to open the room in the table maps and move the tables.

2) It's not possible to hide the step2, because the customers have to know that a table has been found. However you can set the Reservation Requirements option from the Configuration task to "Choose Nothing", so that your customers can go to step 3 without selecting any room.

3) About the reservation time, the first available option is the closest interval. For example if the interval is set to 30 minutes and now it's 7:35 pm the first option will be 8:00 pm.
Webfeuerflo
Hello again, I solved almost all the things. But I have some new questions:

If you don't complete the required fields in the reservation form, it shows an error message and sends you back to the start to select a date. this is quite annoying because the error was not the date but a missing field, so the user would get frustrated if he has to pick a date again. Could you change this behaviour?

The module does not show a calendar but only a date field to enter the date in the format 17/12/2013. How can I change this to the german date format 17.12.2013?

Thank you
Matteo E4j
HI,

if you activate at least one payment method, like pay on arrival, VikRestaurants will check whether a required field is missing before submitting the form.

When you click on the date field, the jQuery Calendar should appear, if it doesn't then it means that you have a jQuery conflict. Try to disable the setting Load jQuery from the VikRestaurants Search Module.
About the date format, it is not possible to change the slashes to periods because the whole framework is based on slashes and dates should not be formatted with any other symbol to avoid problems with the PHP code.

can't move the tables. i tried to drag them, but not possible. Mac, Firefox & chrome.

"When you create a table from the Tables Task, it is generated with the default position (x=0; y=0), so all the tables are one over each other. You just have to open the room in the table maps and move the tables."

Hello, Some days ago I purchased this module, it is exactly what I need!, now I am setting it in order to make it work, the first thing I came across with is that the date picker in the front does not work, I tried with different browsers but it's the same.
Could you please give me some help with this?
Thanks in advance!

Hello,

If the calendar is not being displayed then it means that you have a jQuery conflict on this page. To fix this issue you have to disable the option "Load jQuery" from the VikRestaurants configuration settings. You won't see immediately the changes, unless you use another browser or wait for 15 minutes or more for the php session to get renewed.
