Support » Plugin: Simply Schedule Appointments » Calendar not appearing on smartphone

    I’m creating a smartphone version of my WP site, and I found that when I tap on my Book a Meeting button, the new window opens in Simply Schedule Appointments but the plugin doesn’t appear on the screen. Does SSA work on mobile devices or on desktop sites only? And if SSA does work on mobile devices, is there anything I’m missing that’s causing the plugin not to work?

    Thanks,
    Eric

    Hello @ebutow,

    Simply Schedule Appointments should work fine on most mobile devices. We can’t support older versions of Safari, so if you’re using an iPhone, it will need to be an iPhone 6 or newer.

    It should work fine in other browsers on smart phones, as well, including Chrome and Firefox. If you’re having trouble with a device that should be working, please let us know and we’ll take a look and help troubleshoot. We’re also working on showing a more helpful error message in browsers that can’t support our app rather than just a blank screen.

    Hi, Natalie. I’m using the latest version of Safari on my iPhone 8, but all I see is the footer on the website. The footer is also screwed up, but I suspect that will be fixed once we can figure out why the plugin isn’t showing up. The URL is https://www.butow.net/book-a-meeting

    Thanks,
    Eric

    Hello @ebutow,

    The first thing that’s a little odd is that your footer shouldn’t be rendering on the full-screen appointment booking page at all. I’m not sure what it’s appearing there, but it likely doesn’t look the way you’d expect because the CSS for it is being stripped.

    This full-screen view is handy for folks who are having theme or plugin conflicts, but you’ll likely be happier with the appearance of the appointment booking form if you just use our [ssa_booking] shortcode to embed it in a regular page of the site so that your header and footer are still visible an accessible.

    And then finally, I’ve tested your page in Safari on both iPhone 6 and iPhone 8 and it renders just fine for me. I do get a couple of warnings in the debugger that some of your files are loading over http: instead of https: but I don’t think that would be causing Simply Schedule Appointments not to load at all.

    I’d be curious to see if embedding Simply Schedule Appointments in a page would fix the issue on your phone.

    If you’re familiar with debugging in the browser console, have a Mac, and are up for it, you might try using Safari on your computer to run the debugger for mobile Safari on your phone. (https://www.lifewire.com/activate-the-debug-console-in-safari-445798) That might give a helpful error message that might point the way to why this isn’t working on your phone.

    Other than that – do you have any out-of-the-ordinary settings on the phone I might try to replicate? Using a VPN, some kind of security settings, or anything like that?

    My iPhone is supervised so that may be the culprit. I’ll get the phone unsupervised and then find out if there are still problems. If I still have problems, I’ll run the debugger and see if I can get the error message. If you don’t hear from me, then you’ll know the supervision was the problem.

    Thanks,
    Eric
