Screenshots

  • Once you activate the Rezgo WordPress plugin, you will need to enter in your Rezgo API credentials on the Rezgo settings page located in your WordPress Admin. Look for Rezgo in the sidebar.
  • Your tours and activities will display in a list on your default tour page. From the tour page, your customers will be able to search for available tours and activities by using the date search at the top of the page, searching your items using keywords, or browsing based on tags.
  • Detail pages are designed to provide your customers with all the information they need to make a booking decision. They can view detailed information, browse your image gallery, or watch videos. Visitors can also share your detail page on Twitter and Facebook.
  • When customers choose a date, they are presented with a list of options. Customers can then choose a preferred option in order to continue the booking process.
  • Once a customer has chosen a date, they are returned to the details page with the price options available for the option selected. Customers can enter a promotional code if available, enter the number of passengers or guests for each price level, and continue on to the secure booking page.
  • If the WordPress site is secure, the transaction will complete on the WordPress site. If however, there is no secure certificate, the transaction will complete on your Rezgo hosted booking engine.

Installation

Install the Rezgo Booking Plugin

  1. Install the Rezgo Booking plugin in your WordPress admin by going
    to ‘Plugins / Add New’ and searching for ‘Rezgo’ OR upload the
    ‘rezgo-online-booking’ folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the Rezgo plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Add your Rezgo Company Code (CID) and API KEY in the plugin settings

  5. Or place <?php echo do_shortcode('[rezgo_shortcode]'); ?> in your templates

Plugin Configuration and Settings

In order to use the Rezgo plugin, your Rezgo account must be activated. This means that you must have a valid credit card on file with Rezgo before your Rezgo plugin can connect to your Rezgo account.

  1. Make sure the Rezgo booking plugin is activated in WordPress.
  2. Copy your Company Code and XML API KEY from your Rezgo Settings.
  3. If you would like to use the included Rezgo Contact Form, you may
    want to get a ReCaptcha API Key.
  4. Create a Page and embed the Rezgo booking engine by using the
    shortcode: [rezgo_shortcode]
  5. Advanced shortcode commands are available here at http://rezgo.me/wordpress

Important Notes

  1. The Rezgo plug-in requires that you have permalinks enabled in your
    WordPress settings. You must use a permalink structure other than the
    default structure. You can update your permalink structure by going
    to Settings > Permalinks in your WordPress admin.
  2. The Rezgo plug-in is not supported on posts, it will only function on pages.
  3. The Rezgo shortcode cannot be placed on a page that will be used as a static homepage. The Rezgo shortcode must be placed on a page that has a slug.
  4. If you DO NOT have a secure certificate enabled on your website,
    you should choose the option “Forward secure page to Rezgo”.

FAQ

Read this first: When you encounter a problem with the Rezgo WordPress plugin…

… before you do anything else, first check your Rezgo white label site to make sure everything works there. If your white label website is working correctly and all your information is updated, then there might be an issue with your specific WordPress install. If so, refer to the following common scenarios:

I have added the shortcode to a page but Rezgo is not displaying

The most common reason is a problem connecting to your Rezgo API. Try removing and replacing your CID and API Key in the WordPress Rezgo settings page. Check to make sure that, if the API Key you created is IP restricted, that the IP address of your website has not changed.

Why am I seeing PHP errors or PHP code when displaying the tours?

There are certain server requirements for the plugin to operate correctly. In particular, the following PHP directives need to be set accordingly. Your hosting provider can help you properly configure these directives.

When I click on the details link I get a page not found error or nothing happens

This could be because you are using the default link structure in WordPress. The Rezgo plug-in requires that you use permalinks in order to show the Rezgo content correctly.

When I click on the book now button I get a page not found or server error?

This could be because you do not have a secure certificate installed correctly on your site. If this is the case, or if you are just not sure, we recommend you chose the “Forward secure page to Rezgo” option.

Why are the tabs, calendar or image gallery not working?

This could be due to a conflict between the JavaScript that the Rezgo plugin uses and that of your theme or another plugin. You can often resolve this by going to the Rezgo plugin settings and changing the template to “no-conflict”.

Can I use the Rezgo WordPress Plugin without connecting to Rezgo?

The Rezgo WordPress Plugin needs to pull tour and activity data so it needs to connect to your account via the Rezgo XML API. Your Rezgo credentials (specifically your Company Code (CID) and API Key) are used by the Rezgo WordPress Plugin to display your tour and activities on your WordPress site.

Can I manage credit card payments on my WordPress site?

Yes, the Rezgo WordPress plugin has the ability to handle credit card
payments. Make sure to configure your Rezgo account to connect to
your payment gateway. Rezgo supports a growing list of Global payment
processors including Authorize.net, PayTrace, Chase Paymentech,
Beanstream, Ogone, Eway, and many others. In order for your site to
handle payments, you will need to install a secure certificate. Check
with your web host if you need help installing a secure certificate.
If you do not wish to set-up a secure certificate, you can have the
secure booking complete on your Rezgo hosted booking engine.

I have updated my pricing or tour details, but my WordPress site doesn’t show the new information

Check to see if you are using a caching plugin like WPCache. These caching plugins are great for speeding up your site but will also cache old details and pricing information. You will want to exclude the Rezgo pages from your caching in order to avoid this in the future.

I received an API warning email from Rezgo, what should I do?

The Rezgo API automatically monitors usage and will notify you should your API show unusual activity. If you receive an API warning message, check your web stats or analytics to see if you can find any unusual spikes in traffic. If you are using a content delivery network (CDN) like CloudFlare or you do daily PCI scans from a service like McAfee, make sure to exclude your Rezgo pages. If you continue to receive API warnings from Rezgo, this may be an indication that something is triggering excessive usage on your site. If you do not rectify the problem, your API usage may be restricted.

What if I have a problem not covered here?

Not a problem, you can contact us directly and create a support ticket by emailing support@rezgo.com
