Contact Form 7
Create availability checker form (4 posts)

    Hi, I've been uing Contact form 7 for a while and it does almost everything i require it to. However, there is one thing that I'd like it to do if it's possible. I want to create an availability checker where a user picks a date and they get one of 2 responses - "yes, we're available.. please complete the contact form below", or "sorry, we're not available".
    I know there are lots of event and booking calendars available for WP but they all show the users a complete overview calendar for the month or year. The booking plugins come close but they all seem to only give you the option to check between 2 dates. I don't want to show our full availability, just a date picker or drop down boxes to query a calendar.
    Is this possible and, if so, how?

    Hi robb58, Did you ever find a solution? This is EXACTLY what I've been looking for. Anyone got any ideas?

    Hi littleracingbob
    No, I gave up on the idea in the end. I found various companies who wanted to charge an arm and a leg, but ultimately, it wasn't worth the money they were asking. It seems such a simple concept as there are loads of free hotel booking availability plugins out there, but they all work on checking 2 dates. I wouldn'd have thought it would be that difficult for the coders to create a single date option, but apparently it is... unless someone out there knows better.... :)

    Im in the same boat. I could really use an availability checker for renting conference rooms, but I do not want to show any bookings for the rooms. I just want a checker. I hope an ambitious plug-in developer is reading this....
