S5 Reservation Module

Editor's Note
  • This extension requires registration to download.
The AJAX powered S5 Reservation module allows you to take reservation inquiries on your site. You can setup articles for different packages or items you have available for your industry and then the module will pull from any article category that you define in the backend and show in the drop down of the module. The module is setup and functions like an accordion so that less real estate is taken up on your site. The module also has several input fields that are required for the user to fill out in order to submit and if they aren't filled in they will be prompted and forced to enter before submission. The module uses a sleek AJAX captcha that shows at the end before you submit the inquiry, it simply pops up and once you verify by entering the 6 digits you can then send the inquiry.

It is possible to customize the fields if you go into the code, but only in one language, which kinds of goes against the ideas of xml compatable programming essential to Joomla 1.6 and above. The extension was created for Joomla 1.5.x and then modified. Hopefully it has the bugs worked out by now. I tried using two instances of the extention in differnt languages; because many travel sites, like all of mine are multilingual. The problem was that that created an endless feedback loop, which it shouldn´t do. The feature that it pulls down from a catagory is great because you can keep building and everythign will already be in the reservations module it is just that you have to be carefull with your photos in html to get the desired effect, and how is that going to be in the new responsive framework I don´t know. The plugin is a great idea and it solves a lot of problems by asking the most basic questions for a reservation to get the customer to submit information. It is a front end system which is perfect for agencies that have to deal with multiple systems on the backend. Agents still do the work, the module just makes it easier for the customer to submit. I hope it has the bugs worked out by now!

Very nice module, it is based on a good idea, BUT, it is not customizable. You can't add fields, or rename the existing ones. So it becomes useless if your booking platform requires a different form.
