  1. I would highly recommend to look at boostraping your site at a minimum so it will look good on mobile devices
  2. This is not 5.5.2 and could be a good cause for the confusion. Try with a fresh install of the latest v2 following the link from the thread you posted above.
  3. Took a look at the website. Below are just some preliminary thoughts I think the template you found is a little better, and it was a smart move to get one that was already bootstrapped for presentation on mobile devices You might want to look at the image opacity for the pics in the background. They are washing out your text and its very hard on the eyes. Check this out: https://www.w3schools.com/css/css_image_transparency.asp There is a lot of text to read but no real content. You should have a link to a fleet page, link to your schedule tables, link to a roster, etc. I jus
  4. Thanks Jim! A lot of work has and continues to be put into it. I'm not sure what anyone has ever accomplished on their own with PHPVMS legacy versions, but I really am finding ways to teach an old dog new tricks. Two highlights I've implemented lately: Moved the load generation script into the addbid section so a load is generated and inserted into the bids table at time of bid placement. This is crucial for SimBrief integration in my view so the ZFW won't change every time you click generate dispatch Added a load factor setting (demand) by ROUTE instead of the global setting. Usin
  5. A fresh installation after downloading from GitHub of 5.5.2 will need upgrading to v2. Follow the instructions in the link ProAvia provided.
  6. I assume you are using the default installation of 5.5.2 with no mods correct? If successful, maybe we can fork simpilots's GitHub and make this a separate version, say 5.5.3 or 5.6 to annotate that this is a PHP 7.x compliant version. I know in the grand scheme of things we are trying to deprecate the 2.x/5.x baselines and eventually move to v7, but I for one probably won't be upgrading to PHPVMS v7 for the foreseeable future. I'm sure this will be of great value to a number of folks! Please let me know if there is anything I can do to support.
  7. Any success in your endeavors for PHP 7.x compliance with the 5.5.x baseline?
  8. I have to be frank here. I think this barely qualifies as a legitimate VA website. I think you are missing even the most fundamental elements of good design here to attract pilots to join your airline in an already saturated landscape... How does a prospective pilot learn anything about your airline based on your current presentation? You should list your schedules so prospective pilots can see if its where they want to fly, show your fleet with a nice livery moreso than the very basic fundamental page you have listed, have a listing of recent activity or statistics to show that you actu
  9. Thought I would take a moment to announce that we hit another milestone. We just crossed the 1000 hours flown for the VA mark the other day. In addition, we are now fully SimBrief compliant as an API integrated VA. We've added numerous additional tables of data to our aircraft in order to inject data directly into the SimBrief dispatch system, so each aircraft has its weights and other data set appropriately at every dispatch. Especially useful since as an example not every 767 is the same in our fleet, with each having slightly different specifications. We feel this adds significant imm
  10. What OS (Mac, Linux, Windows?) and what browser are you using? Reason I ask is because lately I've had some Mac users tell me that Safari isn't remembering the session and they constantly have to log back in. Just trying to eliminate that as a potential problem. Are you sure nothing else has changed in the database or on your files? Does anyone else have access to either the SQL database, or directory access on the web server?
  11. For all pilots or a specific pilot? How and where are you displaying this information?
  12. Depends how hard core and realistic you want to be. Load rates as well as load factors vary by region and destination. I extrapolate real world rates from various airlines to come up with a cost per pound on a specific route, not just a global setting. For domestic US operations, my rates range from $1.25 to $1.69 a pound. However on big international routes the rates go up significantly. For example, rates from Hong Kong to the US are upwards of $7 to $9 a pound, making those flights very lucrative just as in the real world.
  13. There are some older threads on here alluding to getting 5.5.2 working with PHP 7.x but nothing seemed to ever get posted on them. I honestly don't know what is broken out of the box but several on here have flat out said it will NOT work. There is Nabeel's v2.x build specifically for PHP 7.0 on GitHub but I haven't looked at it and what the key differences are mainly since I'm a 5.5.2 site for a year now and don't want to migrate to the 2.x line. On Discord Pete mentioned a 5.5.2 update for PHP 7.x... does anyone know where that is? I still say for anyone concerned about this especially
  14. Good point. I assume too much sometimes. I would just add however that the local config file is loaded after and will thus overwrite any settings matched in the app config. If you make the changes for a defined variable in the local config, you don't necessarily need to do it in app config. Additionally, if there are variables you want to alter in the app config file, I HIGHLY recommend to copy->paste them into the local config and do your alterations there. I try to keep my app config as clean as "stock" as possible and do all my work in the local config. You can also create new defin
  15. Its all on you and how you are doing everything on your site. What is your Config::Set('WeightUnit', 'x') set to? Are you using lbs or kgs? Just keep it consistent across all your fleets. As a pure cargo VA, my site is running in lbs with all weights for aircraft set in lbs.
