General troubleshooting
jQuery Conflicts

Sometimes happens, when you'd installed all the modules, that the VikRentItems Calendar is not working or that the slider has some problems, an example, shows your images one just after the other in one vertical line.

In this case your website has a jQuery Conflicts, it means that too many extensions are loading the jQuery library, to solve this problem you have to disable all the Load jQuery parameters in all the Vik Extensions that are enabled and from the Slider modules either.
