CP Reservation Calendar is a booking calendar that allows selecting dates - ex: check-in and check-out dates - for a reservation.
I use the paid plug in and it works. I will probably continue using it until something better comes along.
However some of the advertised features either don't work correctly or just aren't there. For instance, it offers optional services to be added but for some reason the optional services calculate the total wrong. Code People's response to this? Please buy a technical support access for another $25.
Also, the captcha doesn't work at all. I have four hotel sites and followed Code People's suggestions to disable the other plugins but no luck. But they want me to buy a technical support access for another $25.
The apostrophe shows up as "//////" on messages to my clients. As in, "Thank you for reserving with Tony/////s ecolodge".
On their plugin site they talk about a customizable field which would be ideal for what I do, unfortunately I can't find where it is offered, even with the updated plugin installed. Code People's response is, of course, is to buy technical support access for $25.
And you have to manually check for updates; this product does not automatically update like most of the other plugins do.
So my suggestion is to take advantage of their 60-day technical service package that you get when you buy the product by putting the plugin to the test. Blast all the holes in it you can and get them to fix them to make it bullet proof. No guarantee they will, however.
I can understand a plugin that can be a bit buggy... I know that coding something that works for everyone all the time is next to impossible. But I feel that the customer service policy is at the low end of acceptable considering how buggy their product can be.
The free version of the plug-in is good. But I needed a few customizations and so far the developers have delivered exactly what I needed in a very timely manner. Excellent product and customer service!
The visual way for selecting the sliced days reservation is awesome. Already found other plugins supporting sliced days reservations but not as visual as this reservation calendar. The availability is also clear after a first look, avoids going back to the date selector once and once again to locate available dates. I guess I'll get more happy customers from now on.
