  1. Hi Guys
    if I fill out my booking form this note appears:

    [F:/wpbc-booking-new.php| L:409|V:2.0.10| DB:Duplicate entry 5-2019-05-28 00:00:00 for key booking_id_dates::INSERT INTO wp_bookingdates (booking_id, booking_date, approved) VALUES (5, 2019-05-28 00:00:00, 0 ), (5, 2019-05-28 00:00:00, 0 ), (5, 2019-05-29 00:00:00, 0 ), (5, 2019-05-29 00:00:00, 0 )]

    Also, new bookings will not show in my Action list. What to do?

    Thanks in advance.

        • Hello.
          Bookings does not appear because of that error. Such bookings just does not created, as far as I understood. Please check my previous email, fix it. Then make test booking.
          Kind Regards.

  2. Hello,

    For two days now I am trying to get the TimeLine of my bookings into a page. So far I cannot get anything but a compressed version of it. I studied the video instructions and cannot get it. I am working with the WP theme twenty thirteen
    Can you help me please and do it in my website?

    • Hello.
      I can not check that URL, its seems that you was made mistake in your URL to the page with timeline.
      Kind Regards.

    • Hello.
      Sorry, can you send "exact link" to the page with timeline, where you are having an issue.
      I can not find the Timeline at your page(s).
      Kind Regards.

    • Hello.
      1) Did you inserted into this page any shortcodes ?

      I see in content of this page only header "Reserveren overzicht" and nothing else ...

      2) Please read more how easily insert booking form or availability calendar into a pages or how manually configure Booking Calendar shortcodes in content of your pages:

      3) Also, recheck about any conflict with some other plugin or actual theme.
      Please try to deactivate one by one all your active plugins at the WordPress > Plugins menu and make testing after each plugin deactivation.
      If its not help, please deactivate all your plugins and active the default WordPress theme. And then retest it again.

      Kind Regards.

  3. Can you also tell me how I get a page on which the back office accepts or denies bookings? And how I can prevent that clients manage the bookings?

  4. Hi, team!
    I've just installed the Business Large version and I have a question about the Availability/Capacity. The hotel has 28 rooms distributed in 6 types. I want to offer the type of room and show in the calendar the avalability rooms in each type. When I configured it, I created 1 Standard Room (parent) and 12 Rooms (childs) but the system counts 13 rooms available. It must count only 12 standard rooms. How do I get to exclude the parent room in the availability?
    Thank you in advance.

      • Understood. And what about the maximum capacity of each room (3adults in Triple Room, for example)? Ho do I get to set it?
        Thank you so much!

        • Hello.
          You can set maximum number of visitors as 3 visitors for that “parent booking resource” at the Booking > Resources page. You will be able to set it, after activation option “Visitors apply to capacity” at the Booking > Settings General page in Advanced section.
          Check about this here
          Kind Regards.

  5. Hi,
    I'm looking for a way to enter (or copy) the same appointment across several weeks.
    For example, I have the same appointment which occurs on every Wednesday at 2pm for the next 8 weeks.

    If it was a one-off, I would just have them enter it 8 times, but it is a common need, so I'm hoping that a method exists to take care of this need.

    Thanks in advance,

    • Hello.
      You can activate the “multiple days deletion mode” and then activate this option “Use time selections as recurrent time slots”. So now during creation of new bookings you can select. Several different days and make booking of the same timeslots in all selected dates.

      In case if you need to duplicate the booking, so you need to click on edit button at near specific booking and then at Booking > Add booking page click on Duplicate booking button to create the same booking and other day.
      Kind Regards.

      • Thank you for the quick reply!
        Would you know if those options are in the SingleSite/Personal Version?

            • Ok. One last question....I think 🙂
              You said the following...'You can activate the “multiple days deletion mode” and then activate this option “Use time selections as recurrent time slots” '...but, I cannot find those options anywhere on the Small Business Demo settings page.
              Can you point me to proper screen?

              • Hello.
                Firstly activate multiple days selection. Then you will see that option at Booking > Settings General page in calendar section.
                Kind Regards.

  6. Hi there

    I have installed Personal SingleSite 8.5. It seems user confirmation emails are sent out but admin does not receive any email. Can you please let me know how to fix? I've checked all setting and tested with different email address.

    • Hello.

      Please note, Booking Calendar is sending all emails in the same way. Please recheck your email configuration at the Booking > Settings > Emails page

      Please note, Booking Calendar is use standard WordPress wp_mail function for sending emails. This function can be overridden by other plugins.

      Otherwise please check this troubleshooting instruction

      The most probably you need to check the point #5 from this instruction and install WP Mail SMTP plugin which is 'sending emails via php' option and it can resolve that issue.

      Kind Regards.

  7. Hello, is it possible to see the arrivals and departures of each day, on a text? For example for each day i have a text that says today these customers arrives and these customers leaves.
    Can this text be emailed every day to my email?

    Also is it possible to have notifications for the housekeeping, so the cleaning personnel knows how many houseekeeping has for today?

    Best regards

    • Hello.

      Kind Regards.
