Actually quite a nice plugin (a real-estate agent would probably say: Great potential!) - There are still some "hickups" but if people would make the effort to LOOK they would figure it out and don't complain straight away. I still have some issues but not bad enough to contact support yet.
You are on the right way guys/girls...(I might even go Pro :-)
Nice and useful plugin but some important features are missing to use it for hotels reservation :
- No calendar copy : not possible to copy/paste in calendars or duplicate them
- Not enough available filters in search : I found a workaround to define max people in a room, but it is very tricky and does not work if we did not precise a period. I would help if we could filter by several users extras fields (for instance : lift, animals accepted, ...)
- No search bar available : would be fine to can split search and results (search widget ?)
- Colors scheme : default colors are not very visible, would be fine to can customize from backend
It is really a pity, because again your plugin is very useful, and I hope these features will come
For straight on bookings this plugin is ok.
There is no possibility to enter downpayments or depostits.
Also amounts in currencies are not shown correctly:
€ 150,20 is shown as €150,2 Pretty ugly :)
The calendar layout is great, the method of selecting times on the client-side is fantastic, and the application itself is very sleek; it's not something that seems to be in huge demand but it's wonderful that this plugin allows you set set the price of each individual time slot.
Unfortunately it's missing a few basic essentials; as far as I've been able to figure out you have to manually select the days that you are available, type in the hours on those days that you're available, set the default price (optional), and then submit those changes - you should be able to choose default opening and closing times, have the calendar default to showing those times as available, and be able to set up a pricing scheme that is applied by default to each day without having to manually price them.
Overall there isn't enough in the free version that makes me want to buy the pro version, and I haven't been able to see anything of the pro version in order to figure out if it would be useful for my needs without having to buy it - a test site that demonstrates the admin side of the pro version would be ideal.
It's fine for simple tasks, but it has a lot of annoyances when you dig deeper in the settings. Still the best one out there. And please get the Pro version, it's at least one version better than the free one.
I discovered this plugin on the wpbeginner website and thought it was the answer. Having played with it, I'm really impressed. Unfortunately, I get some strange display issues on the front-end where the calendar dates jump down a row when dates are selected.
It also seems to load unnecessary code on all pages on my site rather than only on the pages where the calendar is displayed. I've opened a ticket for this, so hopefully either I'm doing something wrong, or the developer will be able to address it.
The new version of the plugin resolved the issue with displaying booking calendar on the front-end. It works nicely now and will hopefully help lots of users create their hotel websites.
Tested on TwentyThirteen theme.
