Q: Where can I get a great free design which works well with this plugin?

We recommend free “Cherry Framework” website design, which incorporates bunch of hi-end features (visual content editor, Google Fonts, Twitter Bootstrap etc.) and is free. We recommend using “Full width” page template, but it can be any other great WordPress free theme, or any page template.

Q: Where can I get a great premium design which works well with this plugin?

We recommend “BeCarRental” design from “BeTheme” 100+ theme pack, which incorporates bunch of hi-end features (visual content editor, Google Fonts, Twitter Bootstrap etc.).
“BeTheme” uses their own icon set, so to have support for FontAwesome icons, you will also need to install additional “Better Font Awesome” plugin, which is included in the package and located in ”/crs-optional-plugins-themes/plugins/” directory ( better-font-awesome.zip ).
We recommend using “Full width” page template, but it can be any other great WordPress Premium theme, or any page template.
Car Rental System supports both – blue & red CSS styles, but if you prefer the “Crimson Red” color scheme on BeCarRental design, the in the BeCarRental demo website, click on the “Gear” icon in the right sidebar, then in that menu click on “Backgrounds” square button, and enter # “DE2E2F” color code. Then close it. You will see the result after page reloads.

Q: Is there is a detailed documentation?

Yes, there is! In folder “CRS Documentation” there is detailed beautiful HTML file with all step-by-step guidance, detailed front-end and back-end feature list, and all possible short-codes, needed for the setup!

Q: How to copy all plugin data from demo website to my website?

For people, who would like to replicate demo content, we made a copy of our English Car Rental Agency website.
To import a demo you need to go to WordPress admin, click on “Car Rental” section in left navigation menu and choose “Settings” element.
Then go to tab “Import Demo”, select “Car Rental Agency” demo item from drop-down in that tab, and click “[Import]” button.

Please keep in mind that:

  1. By importing demo you will flush all your existing car rental data.
  2. Other website content, including pages content, won’t be affected, so you still have to add the shortcodes by yourself.
  3. Make sure you have a latest DB backup with you before performing this action.

Q: How can I use reservation form in widget at sidebar, and after search go to another results page?

Please edit template of step 1 at “extensions/car/front/templates/template.step1…” and to <FORM block add target=”_blank” action=”http://www.web.com/newpage/” />. And don’t forget to add a shortcode to new page. For custom fields in search – you need to edit step2 html template and use field names used in template.single-item.

Q: How can I make search in new page?

Edit the step1 template (extensions/car/front/templates/template.step1…) and change <FORM part by adding new attributes:
target=”_blank” action=”http://www.web.com/newpage/”
And when you will create a new page – add a search shortcode to it.

Q: I need the script for motos and bicycles. So it is possible and easy to change the text without direct edition of .po .mo?

You need to edit language file at extension/car/language/en_US.php – it’s a text file, you just need to replace the Word ‘cars’ to ‘bikes’.

Q: Do you have the french translation for it ? If not, how can we proceed.

For translation in French, if it not listed in plugin description, then there is no french translation. You can translate the language file at extensions/car/languages/en_US.php as fr_FR.php, add it to ZIP file and send it to us to info AT nativerental THEDOT com.

Q: How can I remove hours exact pickup/dropoff hours from time dropdown in step1 ? I don’t need (01:00,02:00;03:00…).

You need to open template.step1 and for getBookingPeriodDropDown() method change parameters from:
$objBookingsObserver->getBookingPeriodDropDown("booking_period", "booking_period", $objCore->getLangText('NRS_SELECT_RESERVATION_PERIOD_TEXT'), $objSearch->getBookingPeriod(), "")

to:
$objBookingsObserver->getBookingPeriodDropDown("booking_period", "booking_period", $objCore->getLangText('NRS_SELECT_RESERVATION_PERIOD_TEXT'), $objSearch->getBookingPeriod(), array("00:00", "00:30", "01:00", "01:30", "02:00", "02:30", "03:00"))

Q: I want to override the default car template file in my theme. How to do that?

You can create a ‘single-car.php’ file in in your theme folder. WordPress core should pickup that template. The template can be a copy of single page template or default theme page template.

Q: I want to create a new listing front-end template. How to add it to CRS?

If you want to add a new template, you need to do this:
1. Create a template file, i.e. “template.modern-items-list.php” in the /extension/car/front/templates/ folder (at first it can be just a copy of “template.items-list.php”)
2. Create a display file, i.e. “display-modern-items-list.php” in /front/ folder (at first it can be just a copy of “display-items-list.php”).
3. Create a new private resource handler method in NRSInitializer final class in /includes/final.class.NRSInitializer.php), i.e.
    private function displayModernItemsList()
    {
        include($GLOBALS['NRS_FRONT_PATH'].'display-modern-items-list.php');
    }
4. Hook the new private resource hander to shortcode parser – you need to add a new CASE for switch statement for registerFrontEndPages($attributes) method in NRSInitializer final class, i.e.:
            case "modern_list":
                // render modern item list
                $this->displayModernItemsList();
                break;
5. Add new shortcode to your WordPress admin page, to display a new content:
[car_rental_system display="modern_list"]

In reservation process, I don’t receive emails neither as a customer nor as an owner. Could you help?

Make sure your server SMTP settings are working. Or use SMTP plugin, which is attached in plugins package and use 3rd party service like ZOHO.com. Also make sure you have enable emails sending in CRS main settings page.

Q: I get this error when I click on settings: Fatal error: Call to undefined function mb_strtolower() in /home/pasa/public_html/wp-content/plugins/native-rental-system/includes/class.NRSCore.php on line 620

You need to upgrade your server. Either you have 10 years old outdated Php 5.2.X version, or either you have your server wrongly configured (missing Php core libraries).
Php 5.3.x is minimum. 5.4 is or newer is recommended. I’d advice to change to better web hosting. I.e.:
https://www.balticservers.com/instant-vps-servers

Q: When we add images to the cars, the thumbnails are not being generated. What could be causing that?

It’s either your /wp-content/uploads/car-rental-gallery/ folder was not created automatically due some restrictions in your server, or files can’t be upload to that folder. Also, it you are not using regular DirectAdmin, CPanel, WAMP, LAMP, EasyPhp server or so, and using your own server configuration, it might be that you’re are missing the GD library, to install it use it:
sudo apt-get install php5-gd
sudo service apache2 restart

How can I set discounts that my daily rate would be $50, weekly rate would be $330, and for each extra day it would cost additional $50?

Yes, it can, but you have to be smart by setting discount as:
0-6 days: 0%
7-7 days – A % (so that it would be 330/7= $47.14/day)
8-8 days – B % (so that it would be 330/8= $47.50/day)
9-9 days – B % (so that it would be 430/9= $47.78/day)
And so on.
