Ideas

Please, feel free to propose new ideas or new features, which you desire to see in future releases of Booking Calendar Plugin.

  1. How possible/easy is it to add an additional payment provider? This plugin is perfect and what I am looking for, but it has to use First Data.

    • Hello.
      The Business Small (update 6.0) and higher versions of the Booking Calendar is support PayPal(Standard and PayPal Pro Hosted Solution), Authorize.Net, Sage Pay and iPay88 payment gateways integration, other payment systems are not supported yet. You can configure and activate it at the Booking > Settings > Payment page.

      If you want to make the integration of your payment system by yourself, so you will be able to check how is integrated the Payment system (on the example) of the PayPal system at this file:../booking/inc/payments/paypal.php . You will be need to create your file with similar structure in that folder. Also you are need to include the calling of your file into this file: ../booking/inc/payments/index.php in the same way, as it was done for the other 3 payment systems.

      Please note, if you will modify the source code of the Booking Calendar, we will not guaranteed the correct work of plugin and do not support it.
      Kind Regards.

  2. Hi,
    I was wondering if it is possible to register users, and permit them to log-in, without input their personal data everytime but reservation data only.

    Kind Regards.

    • Hello.
      Please note, Booking Calendar support auto fill of some fields (like First Name, Second Name, Email) for logged in users, from the data of user WordPress profile.
      You can activate this feature at the General Booking Settings page in Form section.
      Kind Regards.

  3. It would be helpful in the resources section with unlimited booking capabilities to manually be able to choose and show like in the season filters tab of availability, limited availability and booked dates with colors such as green, yellow and red.

  4. It would be great if we could set the calendar to display 6 months without it running off the page. If you can send a code on how to show X number of months per row that would be great. Did not see that in the shortcode instructions.

  5. It would be nice for the plugin to have mail chimp integration. Therefore you can inform your customer in the booking form with a checkbox to subscribe to your newsletter feature which will capture their name/email and send it to the subscription list using the mail chimp platform seamlessly instead of having to code it into the

    • Hello.
      Currently Booking Calendar does not support integration with MailChimp.

      But you can make this integration by yourself, if you need this. So after each submit of booking, plugin will try to send the data about this to the MailChimp for registration of such email.

      You will be need to make this fix.

      1) Please open this file ../{Booking Calendar Folder}/lib/wpbc-booking-new.php

      then find this code:

      ********************************

      // wpbc_integrate_MailChimp($formdata, $bktype);

      ********************************

      and replace it to this code:

      ********************************
      wpbc_integrate_MailChimp($formdata, $bktype);

      ********************************

      2) then find this code:

      ********************************

      // Customization for the integration of Mail Chimp Subscription.
      function wpbc_integrate_MailChimp($formdata , $bktype) {
      /*
      // Start Mail Chimp Customization

      ********************************

      and replace it to this code:

      ********************************

      // Customization for the integration of Mail Chimp Subscription.
      function wpbc_integrate_MailChimp($formdata , $bktype) {

      // Start Mail Chimp Customization

      ********************************

      3) Also you need to upload MailChimp class: "MailChimp.class.php"

      You can download it from here https://github.com/drewm/mailchimp-api/

      and then upload it to the folder: ../{Booking Calendar Folder}/lib/

      Kind Regards.

  6. Is there an "end user" guide to the system? If not this would be a handy incentive to your customers who could point their users to online help pages for the booking system?

  7. Hi There,

    When are there new update's planned for payment providers. For Example iDeal for the Netherlands. I really want to use Booking Calander but this payment solution is a must for the Dutch Market.

    Kind regards,

    • Hello.
      Unfortunately, currently I can not say about the date of integration of this payment system.
      Hope its will ASAP.
      Kind Regards.

    • This is also a feature I am waiting for. For now I am using the free version and trying to find a solution for my customer. She would definitely pay for this plugin if payment with IDEAL/Paypal would be possible.

      • hi
        we use the program already for a long time (multiuser) but now like to use it also that the custumers can pay.
        there for we need the iDeal pay system the question is now can you give a idea of time before it is ready
        because the season starts in halve a year.

        • Hello.
          Currently we are in progress for the next "major" update of plugin. Before this update will be one minor update of plugin.
          After next major update of plugin, we will start work with integration of this payment system.
          I can not say right now about the times, but probably its will be at the beginning of next year.
          Kind Regards.

  8. Hey,
    I was wondering if it is possible to copy the "Booking Calendar Overview" in the WP backend so that Administrators can edit and approve reservations on the regular site and that non-editing Users could be granted access to a copy of this site where the editing options are disabled/missing but they are still able to see bookings.

    Cheers!
