    WordPress › WordPress Advanced Ticket System « WordPress Plugins looks reasonable, though I've never used it personally. I prefer trac, because it ties into a git code repository for auto updates, blaming, and so on.

    My apologies I did not mean you had ripped that off at all, I only meant that there is another similar product on the market that I have used in the past. Using it before I can see similarities, but I am sure there are bespoke things to your school you have made.

    I did not mean offence.

    I didn't take it as an offence

    I'll take it as a compliment that you are comparing it to a paid for solution

    Looking forward to 2 week timetables

    Nice clean look, exactly what I want.

    EDIT: Trying v0.2 and really impressive install procedure and documentation! Well done.

    Some suggestions for v0.3

    - Slightly change the background colour of periods that are booked to make it obvious
    - 2 week timetable view
    - A way to login by IT staff and quickly make a number of number of identical bookings with 1 click
    - Explanation and examples of LDAP settings
    - Remove white spaces automatically from input forms like the create period times
    - Change bookable tick box to be on by default
    - Change "create period" to "save period" so it makes more sense when you edit it.
    - I get the error "Error Number: 1364 Field 'small_image' doesn't have a default value" When trying to add an ICT room

    Thanks - What do you mean by the identical bookings bit?

    Ahh sorry I should have explained myself better.

    Often as IT staff we get sent an email with a large number of random bookings to make(Because the teacher can't be bothered). Our current booking system allows you to log on as "geography" for example and mass book a load of rooms without having to type in the details each time. Its a really big time saver when you have 20 bookings to make.

    EDIT: Forget this, just wasn't using it right.

    I think I know what you mean. For example: Have one form to fill in, and then a load of location, period and date fields underneath. That would definitely be handy.

    Yes no worries, I had a private message convo with Hightower about it and its fine as it is. I just wasn't understanding it correctly

    Looking good!

    Any chance of putting the text above the pictures and making the pictures clickable as well?

    Planning to bring out the next release tomorrow, after a hard nights graft at it. If there's anything else people would like considering for tomorrows release please let me know and I'll see if it's feasible.

    Looking great, just having some issues with the LDAP integration - I think I have an LDAP user setup properly on the DC, I have the settings in the form:
    LDAP Server(s): staff.server.sch.uk (my staff DC)
    Base DN: dc=staff,dc=domain,dc=sch,dc=uk (for our staff child domain)
    LDAP User: cn=user,ou=Users,dc=staff,dc=domain,dc=sch,dc=uk

    Is this the right format? Wanted it on the child domain to prevent student logons from the off. I get the error Fatal error: Call to undefined function ldap_connect() in /var/www/bookit/system/application/models/settings_model.php on line 109 which seems to request the ldap setting in that file, so have I screwed up?

    Yes, seems like you haven't got LDAP enabled in PHP. Think its just a case of finding the LDAP extension in your PHP.ini and uncommenting it, and then restarting the web service (apache/iis). That should hopefully get you going because it looks like you have the settings right.
