This thread is in the Modification Graveyard.
vB Version: 3.8.2 Rating: (2 votes - 3.50 average) Installs: 12
Released: 18 May 2009 Last Update: Never Downloads: 142
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files Translations Is in Beta Stage  

Removed by the Author because:
  • For 7 mods, there are 1905 downloads but only 577 clicked installed.
  • For these 577 installs I got 4 donations for Brand Free. Make a simple search on the net using the product name and you'll find that 50% have illegally removed my copyright.
  • I found 3 style sites, offering for download my mods but after PAID SUBSCRIPTION, or DONATION
After all, I'll stop be the idiot on this market.

  • Don't underestimate it's value because it's Free. The only reason that I'm posting it for Free download is the lack of free time to support it commercially.
  • Even if it works fine as module, I strongly recommend to use a dedicated vBulletin installation for it. It comes with a unique template to use with.

1.- What's this?

You don't need to spend thousands of dollars to start your very own Tripadvisor®, Expedia®, or Travelocity® like Travel Portal. With microTRAVEL, you can have even more features than those. microTRAVEL is the ultimate solution for Travel Agents, Tour Operators and Travel Portals, to increase their direct sales. None other script has so many (and unique) features like this. Don't believe it? Give a try to the Online Demo.

2.- Popular Features
  • Powerfull Tours Search Form: Let your visitors search by Date period, City of Origin, Destination, Transfer type, Tour type, Accommodation, Max Price, Duration. They can also search for Featured, Editor choice, Popular or Tours in promotion!
  • Unlimited Depth of Categories: You can add as many levels of categories (destinations) as you like. Sophisticated 2 part menu. Upper block contains menu options for the active destination, while the other block contains links to subdestinations.
  • A Dozen of menu options per Destination: Overview (showing latests information from all other menu options). Browse Tours, Articles, Photos, Videos, Forums, Classifieds, Events, and finally Travelmates (a unique feature). Classifieds and Articles, list all related categories.
  • Add special usergroups (eg Touroperators, Hoteliers) and then setup paid subscriptions for upgrading to these usergroups to be able to post in Market place.
3.- Installation

The installation is pretty easy, has been checked many times for installing and uninstalling the product. Just follow these steps below:
  • Download and unzip the file
  • Open the folder vbulletin and select all files and subfolders inside it
  • Connect to your website and open the directory where is your vBulletin installation (usally forum, forums, portal etc).
  • Upload the selected files to your site. If you fellow the right way then the file travel.php must be on the same level as the index.php file of vBulletin.
  • Before any new installation is good to backup your database before, even if nobody is doing it (including me). At lease turn your site off
  • Check at your AdminCP->vBulletin Options->Plugin/Hook System that Plugin system is enabled.
  • From your AdminCP->Plugin System->Manage Products choose Add/Import Product and import the product: product-microrequests.xml
  • microTRAVEL has it's own style (template). From Styles&Templates-> Download/Upload styles import the file: microtravel-style.xml Please check to ignore template version.
4.- Configuration

As every vBulletin product, you need to make some initial configuration before it goes live.
  • Start with microTRAVEL Options and give special attention to choose microTRAVEL style (last option).
  • Go throught and setup ALL tables (eg Destinations, Origin etc).
  • Setup usergroup permissions.
5.- Template Modification

The module is using it's own templates, so it doesn't needs any template modification except if you want to add a link to the navbar. In this case you need to modify the NavBar template.

Open it and find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Add below:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

6.- Copyright
  • You can modify the code as you like to meet your special needs, but you can't distribute these modifications for Free or Profit.
  • You can NOT distribute this module in any form
  • My copyright link must remain always visible.
  • As I've developed this module for my own use, it's normal to keep the legal right for exclusive use in Greece. So installation and use it in any .gr domain, or any domain, with any extention, operating in Greek language is prohibited.

Enjoy it

There is no offense for anything that is saying straight. So, don't worry. There are many reason. It's a mix of (I'll start from my own habbits):
  • My Mediterrenean blond. Passionate and ready to argue with some "smarty" people. The avatar that I found latelly is 100% of me:-)
  • My age. Being 50 is not the best age for a woman.
And now I'll continue what makes me upset here:
  • Follow the posts in any of my mods. eg try with micromembers. Count how many times I've visited and register in sites, juts to check on my own the user's problem. In exchane many users are saying: "Why to waste my time registering to your (mine) site? Come and give support here".
  • Again in my posts, see and try to notice who is always one of the first posters, always pussing my nervous, while he never downloaded anything.
  • For most of my mods I'm always following the feedback by adding new features. eg for microSUPPORT in 10 days only, I've post 3 !! upgrades. Nobody asked: "Maria do you've time? Do you've other family or business obligations in your life?".
  • And of course, the copyright removal.
I don't like to write more. I'm too tired and disappointed. Thanks to God that I'm not doing this work for living. It's juts my hobby. And maybe this gives me the possibility to place my own rules. But seeing the problem deeply, I think (just my opinion) that the real problem comes from They let potential clients to believe that by buying vB, they'll find a wide area of free mods or coders/designers ready to do anything they like for free.

You do a great job with all your mods. I haven't installed any yet as I'm waiting for microReviews and to see if microRequests gets updated. I appreciate all your hard work. I wish I knew how to code.

1. Why is it for you important how many users click "installed"?
2. We all can't do anything against the illegal downloads.
You wrote yourself that you like to code and it's a nice hobby etc, so do it, don't care off the illegal stuff.
If everybody would do it this way, they wouldn't be phtoshop, windows,vb,ibp,all the modifications for........

This mod broke Different Domain, Different style FWIW. I've uninstalled it.

I concur with the above sentiments with this author - she tends to make good modifications, but doesn't have a track record of reliability. I have purchased from her in the past and also ended up abandoning her product for something I consider more stable.

YMMV however...
