3. STEP – Categories

Categories are a very important part of submitting your adverts.
They do not only categorize and separate your adverts for better management, but the category you choose defines which type of advert you want to submit and therefore enables you to insert different advert details, additional contents and additional costs.kategorije Advert Types can be managed in Koparent Settings section. KopaRent extension consists of 5 default advert types:
1.       Tourism
2.       Real estate
3.       Vehicles
4.       Services
5.       Other
There are many already inputted categories for each type, but you can add or edit them if you need.
When creating an Advert and choosing a category, you automatically choose its type, and details that come along are activated for that Advert.
You can manage these details in a way if you don’t put in any value (leave blank), the detail will not show. There are a large number of details at your disposal, but in case you need to use one that is not in our KopaRent installation, you can add them yourself from Koparent Settings.
When creating a new category you choose the type you want your category to be assigned to, and you can create unlimited sub-categories.

When adding a new Additional content, all you need to do is insert its name and choose Advert type and input category name or select already existing additional content category. Categories in Additional content is optional, but if you input Categories then Additional contents will be grouped. Save and your Additional content will be available for you to use it in your Advert with the same Advert Type.


5. STEP – Date range Groups

Date range group if another name for Date Rates or Period groups, it is a group of dates (or days of the week) in KopaRent calendar with its specified price and other characteristics. Date range group consists of more date ranges (periods in calendar), all having the same renting price. All groups appear in the front-end advert Calendar and are separated by different colors. Calendar file
These groups are necessary if you want to enable the reservations for your Advert.
They are connected to booking, calculating prices, search results, creating PDF documents, calculating advance payments and much more.
They are simple to set up, and edit if necessary.

You are creating a new Date range group which consists of more Date ranges:
  • First, you need to name your Group to be able to SAVE or APPLY the item. Without saving you won’t be able to add Date range to the Group.
  • After that, you can set Color and Description (left box) and Publish the item.
  • If you choose Unavailable Dates YES, all Date ranges within this Group will appear Unavailable – this is in case you want to set up all the dates throughout the year that are not available for renting.
  • On the right side, you can now add your Date ranges to the Group. You select Start Date and End Date and the days of the week this period applies to – click to Add Date range.

So we have build a tool so that our subscribers can build their own advert types. Advert types are interlaced with almost all aspect of Koparent weather it is additional contents, additional costs, advert specific fields, categories or even adverts, they all depend on the advert type. Please before deleting one advert type see that it does not have any active item that is depending on it. You can see table of dependencies in Koparent Settings -> Advert types (top right menu button).
