Hello ,

VID number - that important number in Vehicle manager, if you have Pro version Vehicle manager - you may set option for auto fill it, Also you may replace it name with help language file, and propose to user fill to it some like xxxxxxx,

For remove it from all forms - need rebuild all these forms, All forms located at folder.
{Your site}/components/com_vehiclemanager/views/

but for edit/save you will need also rebuild save edit forms, that will need check files:

{Your site}/components/com_vehiclemanager/vehiclemanager.html.php
{Your site}/components/com_vehiclemanager/vehiclemanager.php
{Your site}/components/com_vehiclemanager/vehiclemanager.class.php

Or you may order version with all features as you wish.

2- How the make search only by make and model , not by keywords.
Ours search that not filter, so you can't use it as filter.,
For use as filter you may use so trick:
- In module setting set do search for Title and Description, and model with make
- rebuild search module, set main search field as hidden, and set for it as value "a"
- Now search will do for all vehicle in user selected model and make, letter "a" may exist in any title or vehicle description

component/vehiclemanager - for router go from joomla core, for rebuild that best solution use sh404sef component

Below small customization manual:

In Vehicle manager you may do that self, or you may hire us for that.

ours component have Open source,

it have two parts admin and frontend.

in admin you will see two files:

admin.vehiclemanager.html.php - responsible for show data
admin.vehiclemanager.php - responsible for prepare data

exactly for frontend
{yours site}/components/com_vehiclemanager/vehiclemanager.html.php
{yours site}/components/com_vehiclemanager/vehiclemanager.php

vehiclemanager.html.php - responsible for show data
vehiclemanager.php - responsible for prepare data

al layouts you may see and edit at folder:
{your site}/components/com_vehiclemanager/views/

All connection between what user press in Browser - do wit help TASK variable.

also if you wish all Joomla class methods work. E.g when you create new
Vehicle with help
mosVehiclemanager class. you need also edit file

and add to class definition all new fields what you added to database

for work with review, responsible class from file
for work with buy request, responsible class from file
for work with rent, responsible class from file
for work with rent request, responsible class from file

Most simply way now add new field to vehicle definition - that rename any fields
what you no need with help language manager tab in admin area .

also with help language file you may change options in all vehicle combobox
(options) fields

Also - any empty fields will not show at frontend

If you need change make/model - you need change below file:
{yours site}/administrator/components/com_vehiclemanager/makers_and_models.txt

Also we added to ours component very many module template positions - so you
may add any module to very many places in Vehicle manager - with help Joomla
module manager

If you give full details what exactly you wish, we will self create that for
