I would like to install Meeting Room Booking System as a free Joomla Extension. I think this would be a great thing to many Joomla Users (including me).

    I agree. Having a extension instead of using iframes would be a great idea.

    Hey, I've tried and it works fine !
    Excellent !

    Just a question:
    When I add an entry using default administrator,
    the "Create By" shows "admin" but not REALNAME("Super User" for default) nor USERNAME in view_entry page; but records by other registered users the "Create By" shows their USERNAME.

    I realized that the "create by info" depends on the value written to mrbs_entry table/create_by column when adding an entry. But How to make it always written with users REALNAME?

    Thank you.

    Hi guys,
    here is Luca;
    to Anonymous: actually, this is not a plugin so the "joomla" way to install does not work. You have simply to install mrbs and extract the files in the zip inside; then edit config.inc.php accordingly to your installation and you are done.
    to Ocean: the system is running almost flawlessy. I had a problem regarding the approving of the bookings: as far as I experienced all the bookings are automatically approved with your mod.

    I can't get it to work, neither J2.5 or J3.1.1, MRBS v 1.4.9
    MRBS is working fine, but the changed config.inc.php is the problem

    Orignally, was it a plugin for JFusion - see http://www.jfusion.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=7186?

    Where can I find the JFusion plugin (http://www.schneiderwebdesign.nl/portfo ... n/item/109) is a dead link.

    Excellent and thank you for your effort! Cannot really find a (free) alternative to MRBS, and the Joomla plugin I use now (Room Booking) is made for 1.5

      Maybe you could help me with this problem too.

      The calendar mrbs is for a specific user group in joomla with registred user access.

      So i setup a user group in Joomla. It is on same access level like registred.
      But mrbs handles this user as a administrator. If i change the user access to registred, he can not delete rooms and gets handled like it should.

      How could that be solved?

    I have same issue.
    Only Superadmin should be able to delete entries but

    In php-myadmin the Joomla usergroups looks like this:

    id 1 = public
    id 2 = registered should not be able to booking
    id 32 = group that should be able to booking but not delete
    id 35 = superadmin (only they should be able to delete entries!)

    i guess that i need to change auth_jm_aid.inc.

    Edit: Ok i fixed it!
    Line 28 in auth_jm_gid.inc changed to:
    if($usergid > 34)

    I can't help you with that part

    Hello! Trying to use the script on my Joomla 2.5 site i get it working except that when i login as admin in the front page and access mrbs, it recognises it's the Administrator user but it ain't got the admin rights. Just acts as a normal user.

    Just got the defaults of your config.php.inc
    //Accesslevel
    $min_manager_accesslevel = 2; // Check if the user can modify in aid mode - 2 = registrated joomla user
    $min_manager_grouplevel = 11; // Check if the user can modify in gid mode - 11 = registerd access level

    admin in Joomla is only in SuperUser group.

    I think its something to do with it but don't know exactly what.

    Any hint?

    Thanks for your great work!

     
  • Hi, many thanks for your bridge software. I've been trying to use it as the basis for a Joomla integration at my site. However I run into the problem "Fatal error: Cannot redeclare utf8_substr()" as the function utf8_substr() is declared by both Joomla and MRBS. Do you not run into this problem as well? If not how have you managed to avoid it?

    My solution is to enclose the MRBS code in a namespace. I'd like to be able to incorporate that into the MRBS trunk, but unfortunately namespaces are only available in PHP 5.3.0 and higher and I can't see a way of writing code such that the namespace statement will be used if PHP >= 5.3.0 and ignored otherwise. (At some stage in the future I think we're going to have to require that MRBS runs on PHP 5.3.x or higher, but we're not there yet). Do you know of any way of using namespace in code that will at least not cause a parse error in PHP < 5.3.0?

    Hi i have problems with emails to client.
    I use Joomla email settings. Joomla Massmail works perfect, that means the mail settings are correct.

    Mailer: SMTP
    SMTP Authentication: Yes
    SMTP Security: SSL
    Port: 465

    My Hostingsupport says, emails are send with wrong Sender settings.

    Please note that the sender has not properly defined in your form:
    http://www.tomvernon.co.uk/blog/2009/12/php-sends-mail-as-anonymousservername/

    where do i have to change this settings? In joomla or in mrbs?

    config.inc.php:

    /* All these settings are been taken from Joomla please do not override these settings by copying from systemdefaults
    //DB

    // WHO TO EMAIL
    $mail_settings['admin_on_bookings'] = TRUE; // the addresses defined by $mail_settings['recipients'] below
    $mail_settings['area_admin_on_bookings'] = TRUE; // the area administrator
    $mail_settings['room_admin_on_bookings'] = TRUE; // the room administrator
    $mail_settings['booker'] = TRUE; // the person making the booking
    $mail_settings['book_admin_on_approval'] = TRUE; // the booking administrator when booking approval is enabled

    // WHEN TO EMAIL
    $mail_settings['on_new'] = TRUE; // when an entry is created
    $mail_settings['on_change'] = TRUE; // when an entry is changed
    $mail_settings['on_delete'] = TRUE; // when an entry is deleted

    // WHAT TO EMAIL
    $mail_settings['details'] = TRUE; // Set to TRUE if you want full booking details;
    $mail_settings['html'] = TRUE; // Set to true if you want HTML mail
    $mail_settings['icalendar'] = TRUE; // Set to TRUE to include iCalendar details

    Thanks a lot for your support.

    Best Regards

      In Joomla you can set how to send the mail smpt or php_mail
      the plugin gets al the information out of joomla how the send the mail.
      So, are the mail settings in joomla okey

       
  • That should certainly work, though I suspect there's something missing in your Joomla configuration as the bridge software takes the 'From' address from Joomla:

    $mail_settings['from'] = $mainframe->getCfg('smtpuser');

      This is already don in the joomla.php file

       
      • Yes, that's what I meant. So I suspect the problem is with the Joomla configuration.

    Hi Campbell Morrison,

    I think you have to push mrbs to the next level PHP 5.3.x, it's much saver. Joomla 2.5 and 3.0 have better performance with php 5.3.x. But this is an different discussion.

    Back to the plugin, your question about namespaces I can't solve for you.

    Best regards
    Ocean

     
  • Thanks for the reply. Do you or others not get the fatal error message about utf8_strlen()? I'm just surprised that nobody else is getting this error and so I think I must be missing something.

    :-) its working stress .... fljuuuuwwww

    for gmail the smtp in Joomla:

    Mailer = smtp
    From email = admin mail
    From Name = you website name
    Sendmail Path = /usr/sbin/sendmail
    SMTP Authentication = Yes
    SMTP Security = SSL
    SMTP Port = 465
    SMTP Username = name@gmail.com or name@company_name_gmal_apps.com
    SMTP Password = **
    SMTP Host = smtp@gmail.com

    Hi,

    I also using mrbs, some user told me, that they can't book, they get an error. When i try with the same user/password i am able to book. I definitly don't see what the problem could be. Other users can book.

    As i could see in the screenshot of the user, that could not book, its says in mrbs top right: Unknown User. Is that a known error?

    Any idea how to fix that?

    Hi
    I have been waiting for this and searching for long time. I will need this integrated for joomla. I do see this attachment for joomla plugin however I don't see a good documentation on how to configure it within Joomla. Can some one please point me two things:
    1. Where is the config manual for the plugin? (Note I am not asking for the MRBS config but inside joomla latest config)
    2. Where is the latest joomla plugin code that I can download so I can use this with Joomla 3??
    Any help is appreciated. Thank you
