Creat An Account
;) just thought id let ya know.
Do you know the booking can be auto logged into the calender ?
Not sure if the script does this already on yours.
Contact the script owner, they created one for me.

My site is still unfinished. Yours looks good, love the work you do.

I think your look/branding could be enhanced by a subtle top graphic, maybe just a simple coastal view framed in the same "shadow" effect you are using, with a book spain logo on it. Again, subtle.

I've got to believe this layout could be done more easily with CSS, but that opens a whole other can of worms. ;)

I'm currently making a rentals system much like this one, and I went with the same calendar script, which seems well suited.

I think you might be able to ADV your customers for more money by putting them in the featured listings, which is somewhat confusing as it stands because it shows Latest listings as the main column header, with Featured listings beneath that.

Getting on each page is something worth paying for.

Hi firstimecaller

thank you for your comments.
Top logo we are working on at the moment as the logo willl change
when you click on a differant page.
action - 1week : as we want to do this by css.

Yup thats why i changed it to this. At the moment it's 62 at w3g but its
my comments and =2 and not ="2" .. I can live with that :)

Featured listings will be a paid for service but we will bo this buy hand for the client,
as you can only have around 8-10 pics at any one time.

Appologies for the confusion.
I was just trying to see how you intergrated the calender into the admin area.
Feel free to delete testme and testme2 :)
If you are interested in helping to finish my site (rentals) please let me know :)

Hi Al,

I like what you have done with rental site. I tried a few of the functions and everything seems to be working fine. It doesn't seem like you have adding a listing enabled so wasn't able to test that out.

You said in one of your comments that you want to incorporate a changing header. There was a excellent article at http://alistapart.com on how to do just that using php and CSS. It's under CSS.

I have a question. How do you plan on handling payments?

Regards,
Frank

Both sites bookspain and bookfrance look ferry nice.
You make a advertise option in it only GBP.
Would it be nice to make advertising also in Euro's?

Hi Marten

Euro's doing it now for book spain
as it's a db thing it will take little time.

we have just ported a clients listings today for book france.
Had to change the design a little to get the listings to work, but all done in
6 hours.

Going to see if we can MLS the book france listings to another site later.
