The OS Services Booking developer team is proud to announce the release of OS Services Booking 2.3.5. This is the second version of series 2.3.x of the OS Services Booking extension.
If you are currently running an OS Services Booking release on a server with version smaller than, we encourage you to update to version 2.3.5

What's in 2.3.5?


Thanks to the hard work of develop team, in this version, we have added:

1. Ajax Loading

In previous version, in the first time loading, OS Services Booking must prepare data for a large amount of dates in several years. And this work makes the loading time of component become longer. To solve this problem, from version 2.3.5, we decided to change the normal loading method to Ajax method. So that, on one time loading, OS Services Booking will only process data for dates of one specific month. And each time customer clicking on Next/ Previous months, Ajax method will be called to process available status of dates in those months. With this improvement, we are confident about the loading speed of component


2. AcyMailing integration

This feature is used to setup OS Services Booking with access information for adding customers to your AcyMailing lists. When enabled, OS Services Booking will call AcyMailing and insert a new mailing list user as part of the appointment booking process.


3. Joomla User Profile integration

With this feature, OS Services Booking will retrieve/update data of customers from/into Joomla User profile

4. Prevent double mouse-click

In Previous version, in booking table page, if customer double click on button Add to cart, OS Services Booking will add 2 time slots (with the same Start/end Time) into customer’s cart. So that, this is the bug of component. To solve this problem, we add feature to disable Double Click on Add to cart button to prevent double time slots in the Cart. In Confirmation page, if customer double click on button Confirm. The system will create 2 orders, one with enough information (time slots) and the other is empty (no time slots). So that, this is another bug of component. To solve the issue, we add the function to disable double click on Confirm button at confirmation page. If you are using older OSB version, please upgrade it to 2.3.5 to get these bugs fixed.

4. Access levels for Services

and more..

1. Joomla Native Multiple languages

In previous versions, if you want to make Multiple languages feature with OS Services Booking, you should install Falang component. It is great third party extension. But when we use it with OS Services Booking, it has the limited point. For example: If customer makes the booking request at front-end in Spanish, and the order request is approved by administrator at Back-end, the confirmation email to customer may not in Spanish, it depends on activated language at Back-end of component. After dicussing with several customers, we decided to implement multiple languages for OS Services Booking using Joomla Native multiple languages.

With this new feature, you will be able to translate OS Services Booking content like Categories, Venues, Services, Custom fields into different languages.

To turn on Joomla Native Multiple languages, you should publish 2 Joomla core plugins: System - Language Filter and System - Language Code

 

 

When Joomla Native Multiple languages is activated and languages are installed. When you go to items modification page (as above picture) you will see 2 tabs: General and Translation. Tab: General contains main information of item in Main language,

Tab Translation contains 

- Different languages (In sub tabs)

- Each sub tabs will contain the translated fields, and you can translate content of items in this part.

Note: With checkboxes and select list extra fields, you can translate the options of fields in Tab Translation. Remember Options are defined in General tab.

2. SMS Api EzTexting

From version 2.3.4, besides ClickAtell, OS Services Booking has another SMS API, it's EzTexing. EzTexting SMS API in only for USA & Canada ONLY. To use EzTexting.com you need to have an account with them. You will need to request 'API access' for OS Services Booking to talk to their service.

3. Payment plugins: Stripe and Authorize SIM

Besides Paypal, Paypal Pro, Eway, WorldPay, PayFast, Authorize AIM, 2Checkout, from version 2.3.4, we add 2 more Payment gateways, they are Authorize SIM and Stripe.

With Stripe payment plugin, you can install it at Back-end > OS Services Booking > Manage payment plugins

With Authorize SIM payment plugin, after installing file os_authnetsim.zip at Back-end > OS Services Booking > Manage, please copy file os_authnetsim_notify.php  to root of your Joomla site. And then, login to your authorize.net merchant account, edit the slient post url and enter this value : http://yourdomain.com/os_authnetsim_notify.php (yourdomain.com is your site URL)
