Book a Room Event Calendar

Description

IMPORTANT!! I’ve added a new page requirement. Please create a new page on your site and add the shortcode [showReg] to it. In the settings, please add the URL to this new page.

Note: You need the Book a Room plugin to use the Event Calendar.

This is a small plugin that works with the Book a Room plugin. Once configured, it provides the event calendar view using shortcodes.

Use a shortcode to display a list of upcoming events with:

[showEvents start_offset=”0″ end_offset=”7″ num_offset=”15″]

Start offset is how many days to start from today. Default is 0.
End offset if how many days to show after the start offset. Default is 7.
Num Offset is the number of items to display. Default is 0 (all).

[showCalendar]

This shows the full calendar.

Installation Instructions

First, upload and install the Book a Room plugin.

Upload and install this plugin.

Enter the database settings from the server that Book a Room is running on in the settings for the Book a Room Event Calendar. You can find these settings in Settings > Event Settings.

Do I need to run both plugins?

No. The Event Calendar plugin just shows the event calendar. All of the configuration and work is done in the main Book a Room plugin. We separated them in case you want to install the public facing Event Calendar on a separate subdomain or host.

Great system for simple bookings

I have just downloaded this and installed on my church website to manage room bookings. I am no where near finished yet but this looks by far the most promising I have seen in my search for a simple room booking system. the system is designed for libraries but seems to be flexible enough for my needs. The online forum has also been helpful in resolving some of my initial problems. Thank you.
