  1. Hey,

    i bought the small business version and i need one booking calender with checkin/checkout days.
    i checked the option “Use check in/out time:” changed the times to 14 and 10.

    i deleted the “time fields” in my field settings, because i don’t need times, just days or half days.
    if i try to reserve some days in the booking calender, i’ll get two error messages:

    “Start Time is invalid. The date or time may be booked, or already in the past! Please choose another date or time.

    End Time is invalid. The date or time may be booked, or already in the past. The End Time may also be earlier that the start time, if only 1 day was selected! Please choose another date or time.”

    what can i change?
    Thanks for your help.

    • Hello.
      If you activated the “check in/out times” feature for the booings, then you need to select minimum 2 days in calendar (because start time usually older than end time and if you select only 1 day it’s can generate that issue.).

      You can activate the “range days selction mode using 2 mouse clicks” and set minimum 2 days selction. It’s at the General booking settings page at calendar section.

      Please retest with minimum 2 days selections.
      Plesse test firstly one fully free days and then second booking you can start at the day, where this previous first booking was finished.
      Kind regards.

        • Hello.
          Please open the General Booking Settings page and under option “Use check in/out time: ”

          for the “Check-in time:” instead of the “14” please enter this value “14:00″
          and for the “Check-out time:” instead of the “10” please enter this value “10:00″
          Then update the settings, and after this you can test it again.
          Kind Regards.

  2. Hi There,

    The bookking request does not show the time which hs been affecting the business.
    I repotted this issues a week ago again and I was given instructions which I followed by adding the time short codes again.
    However the issue continues to be problem and getting frustrating.

    Could you kindly direction or I can assign you to site to check yourself ?

    It is an urgent matter.

    Many Thanks

    Many Thanks

    • Hello.
      Did you mean is not showing “Time” field value at the booking listing page ?

      If yes, please recheck that you correctly created time form field at the Booking > Settings > Fields page.

      You need to be sure that you are having corect time field shortcode inside of the “Form fields” form and inside of the “Content of Form Fields” form.
      For example if you are having in the first form, the shortcode like this:

      Select Times:
      [select* rangetime multiple "10:00 AM - 12:00 PM@@10:00 - 12:00" "12:00 PM - 02:00 PM@@12:00 - 14:00" "02:00 PM - 04:00 PM@@14:00 - 16:00" "04:00 PM - 06:00 PM@@16:00 - 18:00" "06:00 PM - 08:00 PM@@18:00 - 20:00"]

      Than in the “Conten of form fields” form you need to have this shortcode:

      Times: [rangetime]

      Also, if you are using the Business Medium or higher version and also using the several custom forms at that settings page, then you need to make previous checking for each such separate custom forms. Also in this case, please be sure that you set correct default custom form for the each of your booking resources at the Booking > Resources page.

      Hope it’s will be helpful for you.
      If you are having some other issue or can not fix this one, please explain it more detail and send screenshots of general booking settings page, form fields settings pages and link to the page with booking form at front-end if your website.

      • Thank you for the reply.

  3. 1. Resources are not align properly. I have 40 resources.
    But some problem in alignment.
    Shows like this.

    B-2 is supossed to above the b-1 i don’t know why this happenning.

    2. And i want to make align A to Z. Not Z to A.

    Z resource is on the top in calendar mode.

    3. I have business medium. If i upgrade to large do i have to reinstall all things? Since i have many reservations and changed little sources. I dont want to loose it all.

    Thank you.

    • Hello.
      1) Please make this fix, for be able to see the booking resources order in ASC direction.

      Please open this file ../{Booking Calendar folder}/inc/lib_p.php
      then find this code:

                  $sql = " SELECT * FROM {$wpdb->prefix}bookingtypes as bt" ;
                  $or_sort = 'title';
                  //$or_sort = 'title_asc';

      and replace it to this code:

                  $sql = " SELECT * FROM {$wpdb->prefix}bookingtypes as bt" ;
                  $or_sort = 'title';
                  $or_sort = 'title_asc';

      This fix already exist in the new update 5.2 of Booking Calendar.
      Please note, you need to rename your booking resources:
      B-1 rename to B-01
      B-2 rename to B-02

      B-10 do not need to rename


      2) If you will make update to the Booking Calendar Business Large version relative to this instruction, then all your booking settings and booking data will be saved. But any modifications of the source codes (PHP, JS, CSS files), will be lost and you will be need to make them again.
      Kind Regards.

  4. Hi good morning.
    I have the Medium version 5.2
    I can not record changes and payments section.
    I get the paypal as the default active.
    And I can not do anything in this section.
    I have tried all possible responses FAQ and me nothing works.
    Please, I need to fix this error.

    Thanks you

    • Hello.
      If you can not able to save changes at the Booking > Settings > Payment page, please try to make following.
      Please open the Booking > Settings > Payment page and remove any URL links from the settings.
      Probably you are having somewhere there absolute (not the relative URL) and your server configuration block saving such type of config there.
      Otherwise you can try to rename some payment gateway files (these files you can find at the ..{Booking Calendar folder}/inc/payments/ folder), like: authorizenet.php, ipay88.php, and sage.php to some other names. Its will remove these payment gateways from the booking > Settings > Payment settings page and you can check, what payment system generate that issue.

      P.S. Most probably this issue relative to the block saving of the parameters, which have the absolute URLS, by your webserver.

  5. When I look at the current bookings under the “Bookings” tab, if I hover over a booking I get a pop up window with the booking details and a few buttons. This is great, however they are going off screen at the bottom of my browser window, and if I move my cursor over the popup window to press one of the buttons, the popup disappears after about 2 seconds.
    This is just a minor loose end in coding I understand, but it is effecting the usability of this plugin (of which I have paid $375 for). Any fix for this available?

    • Hello.
      Right now in the actual versions possible to extend the number of seconds, which is showing this popup window (if you need more time for that). If you want to make this customization, please follow this instruction:

      please open this file ../{Booking Calendar Folder}/lib/wpdev-bk-lib.php
      then find this code:

                      jQuery('.popover_bottom').popover( {
                          placement: 'bottom'
                        //, trigger:'click'  
                        , delay: { show: 100, hide: 800 }
                        , content: ''
                        , template: '<div class="wpdevbk popover"><div class="arrow"></div><div class="popover-inner"><h3 class="popover-title"></h3><div class="popover-content"><p></p></div></div></div>'

      and replace it to this code:

                      jQuery('.popover_bottom').popover( {
                          placement: 'bottom'
                        //, trigger:'click'  
                        , delay: { show: 100, hide: 4000 }
                        , content: ''
                        , template: '<div class="wpdevbk popover"><div class="arrow"></div><div class="popover-inner"><h3 class="popover-title"></h3><div class="popover-content"><p></p></div></div></div>'

      Where “hide: 4000″ – its number in milliseconds how long its have to show at the screen

  6. Is there a way to have the admin view of the booking calendar appear on our website? We want to use this as a tool for members to see who is reserving the spaces.

    • Hello.
      Unfortunately, timeline from admin Calendar Overview page does not possible to to show at the front-end side of your website, yet. Sorry.
      Kind regards.

    • Hello.
      The “range days selection mode” and ability to use the start day of selections as specific week day and also using the same date as check in/out dates for the different bookings possible only in the Booking Calendar Business Small and higher versions.
      You can test this functionality in actions at the live demo of Booking Calendar Business Medium version here

      Please note, such type of days selections and settings start day of selections you can configure at the General Booking Settings page in Calendar section.
      Kind Regards.
