The plugin is free to use and download from wordpress.org, and we will keep this website live for documentation.
Once we find the time, we will update the current system and provide new extenting plugins. This will take a while though!
We hope for your understanding! Thank you for your interest and we apologise for any inconvennience!
To enable this feature you have to install the qTranslate plugin, it's one of the best translation plugins and it's free. The qTranslate plugin should be installed in order the wp-easybooking plugin to function properly.
Yes it is. The wp-easybooking plugin uses qTranslate's functions in several cases, so if you do not install it the plugin will have errors. If your site is not multilingual, you still have to install and activate qTranslate, but don't enable the 'qTranslate language chooser' widget at Appearance/Widgets.
The wp-easybooking plugin uses functions of qTranslate for translations. So no other translation plugin will do, only qTranslate.
To add an owner, go to the wordpress 'Users' menu and press 'Add New'. Fill in the details and select the role "Businessman".
After creating a new business, you have to: 1. Set the location information from the 'Contact information' tab. 2. Set the operating period or seasons of the hotel, from the 'Seasons/ Operating period' tab. 3. Fill in the payment details of the hotel at the 'Payment Accounts' tab. You have to fill at least the bank details or the paypal account. 4. You have to publish the hotel by pressing the 'Publish' button at the top of the business's page.
This may happen for two reasons. First, you have not set the website's currency from the 'Easy Booking' menu. Second, you have not selected a business pack/ package deal for your hotels. At the top of the hotel's page there is a selection box with the available business packages options, from which you have to select one. For the free version it doesn't matter which one you select.
The plugin creates these several pages in order to use them for displaying specific content. In the instructions.pdf (or at http://wp-easybooking.com) you will see that you have to create a new menu (from Appearance/ Menus), and add only the specific pages or post you want, excluding the pages the plugin created. In some themes, these pages will still be visible at the menu bar. In that case you have to install a plugin to exclude pages from the manu bar. There are several free plugins to do that.
This is because the plugin comes with some translations. This will be fixed once you install the qTranslate plugin.
The free version does not calculate the fee that Hotel Owners owe you. That's why it can not display any report.
The main (premium) version of this plugin, uses the package deal of the hotel at several procedures. The free version is just limited at the reports, but the calculations are the same. That's why you have to select a Package Deal for each hotel.
No. This operation has been excluded from the free version.
From the 'Pages' menu of WordPress, select the 'Resort Search Results' page and change it's title to whatever you like. Same goes for the rest of the pages. Be careful though and leave the content as is, change only the titles.
From the qTranslate settings.
First make sure you have the latest version of the qTranslate plugin. You can find it here (version 2.5.32), which is compatible up to WordPress 3.4.2.
Since you have downloaded the latest version of qTranslate, you have to follow these three steps in order to make it work with version 3.5:
From the 'Translations' menu of the Easy Booking plugin. All messages are categorised depending on the page they appear. So press on 'Search Form' to translate the messages that appear on the search form, at every language, 'Search Results Page' for messages that appear on the results page etc...
There are some planned to be ready within the next few months (Rating, Hotels offers etc.), but they will not be free. They will be announced at http://wp-easybooking.com.
Most of the colours can be changed from the 'eb_widgetStyle.css' file, but you have to be familiar with css. There will be support packs, with low costs, available soon at http://wp-easybooking.com, which you can purchase. If you do not find any pack that fits your needs I would be more than happy if you contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
