Support » Plugin: Booking Manager » Promising, but not quite there yet

  • This plugin is very handy when you are using the Booking Calendar and want to insert bookings from other parties like airbnb.

    But there is a big mishap in the code: it automatically appoints “ics@<www.yourwebsite.com>” as the bookers e-mail. This is a non-existing email address!

    If you have the Booking Calendar set on automatical mailing when you change/update a booking, you can imagine was happens; the plugin starts mailing to non-existing e-mail addresses, resulting in hundreds of bounces a day!

    Hello.
    This email address was intentionally set as ics @ yourserver.com
    In future update we will add to the settings ability to change this email address in settings page.

    P.S. You can make fast fix for changing this behavior to admin email:
    Please open this file ../booking-manager/core/wpbc/wpbm-bc-import.php

    ( you can check how to edit files in WordPress menu in this article http://wpbookingcalendar.com/faq/how-edit-file-in-wp-menu/ )

    then find this code:

    
    		// Email
    		$home_url = explode( '://', home_url() );			
    		if (count($home_url>0))
    			$email = 'ics@' . $home_url[1];
    		else 
    			$email = get_option ( 'admin_email' );
    

    and replace it to this code:

    
    // Email
    $home_url = explode( '://', home_url() );			
    $email = get_option ( 'admin_email' );
    

    Thank you.

    Too bad I had to leave a review instead of getting an answer to my support question…

    The mail address is not set to ics@yourserver.com, it it set to ics@WWW.yourserver.com, making it as a unusable e-mail address which cannot be created!

    Better solutions:

    1) at least leave the WWW-part out
    2) try and filter the ics-feed to find if there is a real mail address (the airbnb-feed has!)
