I am looking for ways to implement this laundry room booking system I’ve been thinking about. I am most familiar with WordPress and was thinking of trying to use that as the platform and some kind of plugin to get the desired functionality in place. I’ve done a simple wireframe of how I image this to work from the front end.

It is quite simple I would say, a one-pager with a usual calendar week view with hours on the vertical axis and dates on the horizontal axis and timeslots which are either available to book or already booked. I’ve done a view showing 2 weeks at a time, but that is not critical, it could only be showing 1 week at the time. When clicking on an available timeslot you get a lightbox with information of what timeslot you are about to book and put in your apartment number (wp username) and pin code (wp password) to make the actual booking.
From what I have found I think that Events manager would be a great fit together with the WP FullCalendar plugin. But there are some things I need help with to get this working, eg tthe lightbox when clicking on an available event, the WP FullCalendar plugin don't display the events with time on the vertical axis even though the original FullCalendar plugin has support for this etc.
If you feel that this is a project you would like to take on or know someone else who is perfect for it send me an e-mail. Even though this is somewhat of a “hobby” project I am absolutely willing to pay for professional help to get this up and running.
I know this might not be the appropriate place for a question like this, but if you know a better place then let me know.
Thanks for your help!
