I sent you an email a short while ago before I found this area. I have a pre-sale question. When your theme is updated, is it done in the admin area of the site, or must one FTP a fresh copy to the site, without overwriting previous customizations?

AurelienD

Hello,

You need to use FTP to update the theme. Note that when you want to customize a WordPress theme it’s a good idea to create a child theme so if the theme is updated (automatically via the WordPress admin or via FTP) you don’t lose your modifications.

Hi

I like this theme :)

I don’t have a hotel but we rent out three holiday cottages, can this theme be adapted for that? Each of our cottages have a name.

Can for instance wording in the menus, for example, “book a room” be changed to Book at cottage” and “room type” be changed to “Cottage” etc etc. Thanks

AurelienD

Hi,

Thanks! Yes sure the theme can be used for holiday rentals. You can easily customize the wording as you wish.

Just bought the template The Place, but it failed to upload the zip-file to my URL into the latest version of Wordpress. I get the following message: The template could not be installed. It misses the style.css stylesheet. Could you please help me out, because I got stuck and I really want to set up the website soon.

Hi, i developing a vacation rental site and want to use the feature icons. I read in a former comment/question where to find them, but there are so many. I there an easy way to select the relevant ones for vacation rentals or hotel features? thanks! Anouk

AurelienD

Hi Anouk,

You can find the icon here: http://p.yusukekamiyamane.com/ Yes there are 3000+ icons and unfortunately I don’t think there’s a way to sort them. I think I selected all the icons related to hotel features but I can’t be sure, I might have missed one.

Hi, exite the ability to remove the slider navigation, ie, do not leave the arrows or the number of images, only text.

Thanks

AurelienD

Hi,

I suppose you are talking about the full-screen slider. You can use this CSS to remove the arrows and the number of images:

#fss-caption-container .fss-button-right, #fss-caption-container .fss-button-left,#fss-caption-container #position-indicator {
    display: none;
}

Hello, Is there a way to save sended messages from booking system, or a way to send a copy to the administrator? Regards

AurelienD

Hello,

You could try this : in the ah_send_email() function which is in the aurel-hotel-init.php file replace:
if ( wp_mail( $resa['mail'], $subject, $message, $headers ) ) {
with:
if ( wp_mail( $resa['mail'], $subject, $message, $headers ) && wp_mail( get_option( 'admin_email' ), $subject, $message, $headers ) ) {

So all messages sent from the Booking System should go to the customer and to the administrator.

Aurelien

Thank you, Don’t you think it was a good option for a far future release ?

I think also to make a sql request to extract old mails from database.

Regards

AurelienD

Hi,

Yes it could be an option. I will add it in the next version of the theme. However it won’t be possible to extract emails since they are not stored.

Hi AurelienD

the site is http://www.makyva.it/

Where is the rule for the width of the submenu? I would like to decrease the space to the right of the items in the submenu; the submenu example of “Day” and “Night”. Many thanks and Best regards. Bruno

AurelienD

Hi Bruno,

You can change this CSS rule:
nav ul.nav-standard li ul {
    width: 180px;
}

and put whatever width you wish instead of 180.

Aurelien

Hello! I found imperfection in your booking system! In Contact form we ask to mark check-in and check-out date. Basing to this information, program correctly fills Rooms availability and booking callendar but in new booking request – in Contact form check-out callendar next day (when next Client will arrive) is frozen. Therefore come out empty dates (24 & 27): Sample: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B95JkrKbCzjELWFzaTMzV0hSYm8/edit?usp=drivesdk

In my opinion in Contact form check-out calendar should allow select first nearest reserved date.

AurelienD

Hello,

I think this happened because you mixed a check-out calendar and an availability calendar and the Booking System doesn’t support this feature. The correct way to do would be to create a check-in and a check-out calendar without availability and an aside calendar where you show the availability.

If you need further information about this do not hesitate to email me. You can also send me a link towards your website so I can advice you more accurately.

My site 3palmscape.co.za is now live and looking good. Thanks for all your help!

I am now optimizing it and testing it with gtmetrix. I scored an 83% and Yslow of 88%. I am using w3total cache and ewww which helped. What would be the best way to increase my page speed. Should I use the minify? It is asking me to combined images using sprites and serve scaled images. I tried to scale image to correct size but had no luck. I optimized images with ewww but Its still asking me to do so.

Thank you!

AurelienD

Hi,

Yes it looks nice: you’ve done a great job!

Website optimization is a bit beyond the free support I can provide: I’ll give you advice but I won’t be able to help you implementing the different techniques and setting the different plugins you might need. That’s being said here is my take on this topic:
- yes minifying CSS and JavaScript is a good idea.
- I’m not sure that creating a sprite is worth the effort (it’s really a tedious job).
- since the website is responsive it’s nearly impossible to serve scaled images. You would have to dynamically create images of every size on the server + you would need to reload images each time the browser is resized (so overall the performance of the website would be worse).
- you could use a CDN to serve images (it will decrease the loading time).
