This article is to describe how to effectively override Joomla components, modules and plugins CSS styles and in particular how this applies to Taxi Booking system for Joomla.

First let me start with something easy: each Joomla component, module and sometimes plugin has it's own CSS file (unless poorly written with inline CSS which will not be in the scope of this article). The CSS rules in those CSS files may, and usually do, conflict with CSS rules set by your Joomla template's CSS.

Fortunately there is a quite easy solution of this problem although it requires a bit of work on your part. But keep in mind that Templates and components and modules are usually created by different developers and tested in different environments and therefore may have never been seen to work together until you install them on your website. So a little bit of work on your part may need to be involved to "polish that apple" - make your website look and feel beautiful.

How to use Taxi Booking for Fixed Prices between destinations (Limo Booking style):

To use Taxi Booking as a software to charge Fixed (or Flat rate) fares between two destination you will have to use only the Special routes functionality.

First of all you have to create your Points of Interest (all of your destinations) adding their coordinates at the back end Points of Interest section.

You may think "Why would I need route shown and time calculated since I only run my service between set destinations?"

We have studied users opinions and visual map with route and time for the journey builds credibility with your clients and they are more likely to book your services online.

Also time calculation is very important aspect as Taxi Booking blocks off booked Date and time and if a new booking request is made for the same time period vehicles previously booking will not show in the search result preventing double bookings of vehicles from your fleet. Note: In cars management Track availability must be set to Yes for each car to block off booked Date/Time

Security of personal data has to be covered in 2 aspects online: Payment data like credit card number and Personal data like address and full name.

At our projects developed by KANEV.COM, we are using only 3rd party payment gateways for secure payment transactions.
Companies like PayPal take the responsibility of storing credit card details on their servers and this is much better option than relying on your own server's security. Companies like PayPal specialize in secure transactions online and they invest many resources to accomplish their goal, no single website owner could afford such an investment. Add a comment
