This thread is in the Modification Graveyard.
vB Version: 3.8.2 Rating: (2 votes - 3.50 average) Installs: 12
Released: 18 May 2009 Last Update: Never Downloads: 142
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files Translations Is in Beta Stage  

Removed by the Author because:
  • For 7 mods, there are 1905 downloads but only 577 clicked installed.
  • For these 577 installs I got 4 donations for Brand Free. Make a simple search on the net using the product name and you'll find that 50% have illegally removed my copyright.
  • I found 3 vb.org style sites, offering for download my mods but after PAID SUBSCRIPTION, or DONATION
After all, I'll stop be the idiot on this market.

ver 1.0.0

  • Don't underestimate it's value because it's Free. The only reason that I'm posting it for Free download is the lack of free time to support it commercially.
  • Even if it works fine as module, I strongly recommend to use a dedicated vBulletin installation for it. It comes with a unique template to use with.






1.- What's this?


You don't need to spend thousands of dollars to start your very own Tripadvisor®, Expedia®, or Travelocity® like Travel Portal. With microTRAVEL, you can have even more features than those. microTRAVEL is the ultimate solution for Travel Agents, Tour Operators and Travel Portals, to increase their direct sales. None other script has so many (and unique) features like this. Don't believe it? Give a try to the Online Demo.





2.- Popular Features
  • Powerfull Tours Search Form: Let your visitors search by Date period, City of Origin, Destination, Transfer type, Tour type, Accommodation, Max Price, Duration. They can also search for Featured, Editor choice, Popular or Tours in promotion!
  • Unlimited Depth of Categories: You can add as many levels of categories (destinations) as you like. Sophisticated 2 part menu. Upper block contains menu options for the active destination, while the other block contains links to subdestinations.
  • A Dozen of menu options per Destination: Overview (showing latests information from all other menu options). Browse Tours, Articles, Photos, Videos, Forums, Classifieds, Events, and finally Travelmates (a unique feature). Classifieds and Articles, list all related categories.
  • Add special usergroups (eg Touroperators, Hoteliers) and then setup paid subscriptions for upgrading to these usergroups to be able to post in Market place.
3.- Installation







The installation is pretty easy, has been checked many times for installing and uninstalling the product. Just follow these steps below:
  • Download and unzip the file microTRAVEL.zip
  • Open the folder vbulletin and select all files and subfolders inside it
  • Connect to your website and open the directory where is your vBulletin installation (usally forum, forums, portal etc).
  • Upload the selected files to your site. If you fellow the right way then the file travel.php must be on the same level as the index.php file of vBulletin.
  • Before any new installation is good to backup your database before, even if nobody is doing it (including me). At lease turn your site off
  • Check at your AdminCP->vBulletin Options->Plugin/Hook System that Plugin system is enabled.
  • From your AdminCP->Plugin System->Manage Products choose Add/Import Product and import the product: product-microrequests.xml
  • microTRAVEL has it's own style (template). From Styles&Templates-> Download/Upload styles import the file: microtravel-style.xml Please check to ignore template version.
4.- Configuration







As every vBulletin product, you need to make some initial configuration before it goes live.
  • Start with microTRAVEL Options and give special attention to choose microTRAVEL style (last option).
  • Go throught and setup ALL tables (eg Destinations, Origin etc).
  • Setup usergroup permissions.
5.- Template Modification




The module is using it's own templates, so it doesn't needs any template modification except if you want to add a link to the navbar. In this case you need to modify the NavBar template.


Open it and find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


Add below:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.






6.- Copyright
  • You can modify the code as you like to meet your special needs, but you can't distribute these modifications for Free or Profit.
  • You can NOT distribute this module in any form
  • My copyright link must remain always visible.
  • As I've developed this module for my own use, it's normal to keep the legal right for exclusive use in Greece. So installation and use it in any .gr domain, or any domain, with any extention, operating in Greek language is prohibited.


Enjoy it
Maria

Trying to install it.....
But when it comes to the styles/templates import I am getting the message that the mod has been developed for vb 3.8.1 and I am running 3.8.2

How to resolve this issue?
Thanks

It's working fine with 3.8.2. Import the style with options:
- New Style
- Ignore version
- Empty name

This looks great Maria and as mention seems to have a great potential!

Having read the docs to it you say it has it's own style, would it still work if you did not install this style and would it adopt the current style you're using?

See the attachment and you'll understand why it needs this template. There is a left column which holds the active destination and all related menu option, as a way to keep the user in the right place for discussion.

I spent lot of time to build this template to avoid placing in troubles those who will use it for modifying templates. Sure you can use your own (or default) template especially if you don't plan to use the forums (I mean the travel forums).

If you want to use the forums and still using your own template (the mod will continue working find), then is better to open functions.php (microtravel/includes) and find at line 1902:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and replace it with:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

This way the forum will open in a new window, so the users can return where they're before just by closing the forum window.

Hope that it helps
Maria

At least for me is selling like crazy... and I don't mean as script. If you've experiance about Tourist Business, you can make money in a snap. Otherwise is useless.

Don't know a lot about styles, but what for sure I know is that I tested having 5 styles already installed and nothing messed up. Have you follow the instructions? Import style, Create new style as is by default, Ignore version, and title empty.

This style is needing as it adds a left column to show active destination menu.

I've noticed something. No offense here. Seriously because I think that you are a very talented coder, however, I have been through a lot of your mods, and noticed that for some reason or another, you seem to get ticked off after a while and delete the mod. Is there a reason for that?
