In the last months, I joined Vaganga, to work in what I believe, the next travel site to buy your touristic packages with an excellent price.
When I joined the company, the source code was being started by an American company called Xillent, and it was a real disaster, I don’t know where they learn to develop websites, but if you want to have a daily post in Daily WTF, be sure to hire them. So I ended rewriting a big part of the code, and luckily, we already released the first version of the web site, and although I have thought (and I’m already working) in migrating all the site to rails, while working to support the current PHP version, the site was released and it’s ready to be used.
Some points to consider to use this site for your next trip :
- It’s cheaper that many other sites, it’s one of the cheapest web sites out there.
- Besides great prices, you can be part of the Vaganga community, with important benefits
- We maintain an history of all your buys, an in little time, we will have discounts for people that buy on the site
For now, the site is working with VAGANGA
While working for lasentinel, I was having some issues with the MOStlyCE editor, the problem was that there wasn’t a way to let the CMS administrator to upload images, media, etc. because it was throwing a js error, related to a callback function parameter: advimage_image_browser_callback.
The first thing I discovered, is that there was missing the UserFiles directory, if you want to allow your users to upload files for the articles they write, you have to search inside the mambots/editor/mostlyce for a compressed file, just extract these files in the /UserFiles directory.
But even when I did that, and configured one more time the MOStlyCE admin with the correct configuration, it was still throwing errors, I didn’t know why, so I tried to delete the molstyce admin module and mostlyce mambot and reinstall it again, but it was failing with the same errors.
The solution? I installed MOStlyCE 3.1. It looks much better than before and works fine with mambo.
So if you are having trouble with MOStlyCE in mambo (and I know there are a lot of people out there with that problem), don’t break your head, just uninstall the MOStlyCE admin component and MOStlyCE mambot, install the last version of MOStlyCE, search for the UserFiles.zip archive and extract to /UserFiles, set up the component in the administration screen and that’s all
