How can I embed the booking calendar on a page or post?

Use the button ‘Add Calendar’ above your editor. An example of a token: [wpia id=”1″ title=”yes” language=”auto”]. If you paste this token in a page it will show your booking calendar with the title of the calendar.

How can I remove the booking calendar title from displaying?

Edit the shortcode: title=”no”.

Reviews

Asked for a refund – no response

Paid Plugin doesn't work. No Support is available. There are better free options out there. They made a great landing page so I bought it stupidly without reading any reviews.

Plugin breaks on IE 11 and Edge

The plugin doesn't work with Internet Explorer 11. It displays the widget, which should be located in the right sidebar, at the bottom of the page. After finally scrolling down to the bottom of the page to see the widget, it becomes sticky, obscuring whatever content it slides over when the page is scrolled up and down. Also, the display of the widget is cut off and the buttons aren't displaying the right background color. The background color issue also occurs in Edge. Plugin hasn't been updated in over a year and support is non-existent. They're still selling a 'Pro' version of this on their own website, so buyer beware.

Service at its best

Sent an eMail after I bought the wrong plugin. They answered within one hour and really helped me out easy and fast.Thumbs up!

Terrible experience!

After plugin installation I got this error on the webpage: "WP iCal Availability: Invalid calendar ID" I wrote several times for support and waited a week, but nothing! Refunded by PayPal. It is not easy to find such a bad support!

Excellent

Super support. Small issue with a conflicting plugin. Fixed within half a day and that with me being on CET. The iCal plugin is ultra simple but works well for our needs. Easily worth the money.
