    Hi, I've just released my first plugin. It is the first of a group of plugins in development to add property management functionality to WordPress.

    This first plugin provides Booking management capabilities and a customisable Availability calendar and is aimed at rental property owners who use WordPress to promote their property, and currently use an external availability calendar.

    Though I'm sure it could be put to other uses....

    The URL of the release is here: http://blog.clearskys.net/2006/11/20/booking-manager-and-availability-calendar-plugin-v01a/

    Installation and operating instructions are here:

    Hello cafespain!

    It seems your blog is down and I cant really find much documentation on this. Will your blog come up again soon?

    I want to test it for this project: http://visithaugesund.org/. We want to use your plugin for out visitors to order activity breaks on the post pages. Do you think it will work for this kind of use?

    We were affected by the everydns.net DDOS attack. It all seems to be back up and running now, and I'm working on spreading our DNS reliance over a number of companies (as well as countries, sheesh the things you have to do to try to stay accessible).

    The availability and booking manager would be good for back end management of bookings and display of availability. If you wanted your visitors to be able to make enquiries/bookings via your website, which are then passed direct to the booking manager then this plugin alone won't do it.

    However.... our enquiry/booking plugin is being developed for just that purpose (and integrates directly with availability plugin) and will be available very soon.

    Hi all.
    For those with earlier versions of this plugin. I've just released version 0.4a, and a linked Availability Calendar widget.
    This version introduces a lot of bug fixes and improvements, so if you are using an earlier version then please upgrade.
    Download and upgrade/installation instructions can be found here:

    Can someone tell me if this set of plugins (availability and booking) allow a site visitor to actually book the resource (in this case, it is a vacation cottage) online, including someway to tap into a payment system (even if just paypal)? I don't expect it to include the payment stuff, just some way for the visitor to finalize the time period chosen and click a button to pay (deposit or fully) via some payment app (like paypal)

    I've downloaded and will install to check it out, but thought perhaps someone (the plugin developer?) could give me a general yes|no reply on whether the plugin merely passes an email *requesting* a booking or could be fully used to pass the details to paypal (or similar).

    The second part would be whether returned data from the payment app can be integrated into the data fields of the plugins' tables (such as deposit paid, full payment confirmed, etc)

    Anyone? TIA!
