Support » Plugin: WP Simple Booking Calendar » Custom status and query by search engine (?)

  • Hi,

    I’m building a hotel search engine and I have created custom content that Hotel can generate in front end. Users can query the hotel by cities and specific args but I’m have to manage also an availability status.

    I’m looking for a plugin that helps hotel to manage their own “availability” (not to make a booking, just to display if they are available or not on specifics periods).

    Your plugin looks really gret, and I’m wondering if its possible to :

    – manage custom status (not available / available / best rate (available + special rate)) and
    – query those status in my search engine

    Thank you for your help and your answer.
    Cheers,
    p36p

  • Hello,

    You can add an unlimited number of statuses, that’s explained in the FAQ on the plugins site.

    About searching through dates, it will be a bit tricky. All the data is stored in the database as a big serialized array.

    Hi veribo,

    Thanks for your answer,
    Is that a way to make readable / queryable that big serialized array (or to auto-translate it) ?

    I think the best way would be through PHP.

    You can get the data with get_option(‘wp-simple-booking-calendar-options’);

    Thank you for your help I will try to do that
