  • I just emailed Dima this suggestion for the Booking Calendar plugin:

    It would be great if there was an option to lock the calendar so that the user can only book complete weeks and the option to set start day. Lets say the users can only book complete weeks going from saturday-friday.

    I’m making a booking page for a house which can only be rented by the week. Many house rental agencies work like that. And I’m sure there must be more use for this feature.

    Please write something here if you too need that feature so that Dima will incorporate that feature in an upcomming release.

  • Interesting feature, I think i will add it at future realeses.

    1. I support this feature i.e. to set a minimum one week blocking i.e 7 days from the first day selected.

    2. Second request is to be able to include cost of the booking in the approval email.

    3. Paypal integration to pay the rental / deposit.

    4. Ability for user to select the whole month in one click (rather than clicking the days one by one).

    5. Ability to display ranges of dates of booking in the email (rather than each separate dates) i.e. Sep 1st – Sep 4 2009; and not 1/9/2009,2/9/009,3/9/2009,4/9/2009

    Ok, also good

    just added an extremely crude way to email approved booking on the costs for item (2) above .. see below.

    foreach ($result as $res) {
                        $mail_body =  $res->user_name . ', your reservation to stay at XXX on these dates: '.get_dates_str($res->booking_id).'  has been approved.<br /><br />';
                        // calculate the number of days which is separated by dots;
                        $days_num = substr_count(get_dates_str($res->booking_id), '.')/2;
                        if ($days_num < 30) {
                          $myrate = $days_num * 120;
                          $numweek = 'less than a month';
                          $mail_body .= 'You are staying for '.$days_num.' days, which is '.$numweek.'. The lump sum rate for the whole duration is $'.$myrate.'.00 apartment charges only. <br /><br />Your invoice and leasing agreement will be emailed separately and we request advanced payment for the total amount.<br /><br />The invoice, methods of payment and rental agreement will be emailed to you shortly.<br /><br />Thank you.';
                          }
                        elseif ($days_num < 90 )  {
                          $myrate = $days_num * 55;
                          $numweek = 'less than three months';
                          $mail_body .= 'You are staying for '.$days_num.' days, which is '.$numweek.'. The lump sum rate for the whole duration is $'.$myrate.'.00 apartment charges only. <br /><br />Your invoice, methods of payment and leasing agreement will be emailed separately. Take note that we will require a 50% advanced payment.<br /><br />We shall be contacting you soon.<br /><br />Thank you.';
                          }
                        else {
                          $myrate = $days_num * 45;
                          $numweek = 'more than 3 months';
                          $mail_body .= 'You are staying for '.$days_num.' days, which is '.$numweek.' and considered leasing the apartment for a long-term basis. <br /><br />Your monthly rental details as well as a leasing agreement will be emailed separately.<br /><br />We shall be contacting you soon.<br /><br />Thank you.';
                          }

    Verification system already exist at plugin

    And all other mentioned features are included in Booking Calendar

    All features you mention are in , it is a professional booking calendar

    Hello preda1, yes some functionality exist only at the Booking Calendar Professional version.

    Please use in your link names title from your product and do not make from title Booking Calendar link to your page. Its incorrect. Thank you.

    Good plugin, but I wish the English translation for the automated email responses was better. Saying “your reservation at dates” is not proper English grammar, and neither is “Second Name.” It detracts from this plugin.

    I hope you’ll consider fixing that in future releases of the free version. Why not consult someone fluent in the written English language?

    Many WP users have no need for the pro or deluxe versions, and frankly, I’m not willing to pay over $100 just to change that one feature.

    FYI – For those of you interested in a work-around for this issue, remember that you can always just view the email address of the person who made a reservation through the admin section of the calendar and then create your own message to that person via a personal email program. Not as convenient, of course, but until the email feature of the free version is fixed, it’s a better solution than confusing a new client with broken-English.

    Thanks
