This page is about the menu SETTINGS -> BOOKING PAGE  -> DEVELOPERS

Code snippets for the booking page are available in SETTINGS->BOOKING PAGE.

The booking page can be embedded in a page using an iframe or opened with a link or form. It can be fully customised in SETTINGS->BOOKING PAGE. This page gives an overview. Additional options for developers are:

Custom Text

Any fixed text on the booking page can be exchanged in SETTINGS->BOOKING PAGE ->DEVELOPERS "Custom Text"

Custom CSS

Custom CSS can be added in SETTINGS > BOOKING PAGE > DEVELOPERS > "Custom CSS"

To see a list of CSS examples look into this document: Custom CSS

External CSS file

It is possible to make the booking page use a CSS file that you supply, you must host the CSS file on a secure web server (using https:).

To do this you need to add the &cssfile parameter to the URL for the booking page, or for example the iframe SRC.

You could do this to use different styling per page or site.

For example if your css file is: https://yoursite/path/your.css

Goto this site and encode it: http://meyerweb.com/eric/tools/dencoder/

Add the resulting parameter to the booking page URL like this: &cssfile=https%3A%2F%2Fyoursite%2Fpath%2Fyour.css

Your CSS file will be included.

Note:
The external stylesheet needs to be hosted on a secure site (https) to be accepted by the secure Beds24 booking page.

Booking Page Parameters

  • The behavior of the booking page can be controlled with the following parameters passed in the URL or form. URL Parameters are always added in the format name=value. To separate them, the first parameter must have a ? before it and all following parameters must have an & before them. For example if you want to change the default for the numbers of night selector to 7 nights you change the link to your booking page from

https://www.beds24.com/booking2.php?propid=2047

to

https://www.beds24.com/booking2.php?propid=2047&numnight=7


Example: hide header

https://www.beds24.com/booking2.php?propid=2047

to

https://www.beds24.com/booking2.php?propid=2047&hideheader=yes

Example: Make a booking page for selected rooms only

Use the propid to open the page and add &hideroom=22543 to hide a room. You can hide multiple rooms by comma separating them.

https://www.beds24.com/booking2.php?propid=2048&hideroom=3589,3588


Example: link to the booking page with dates pre populated:

https://www.beds24.com/booking2.php?propid=13437&checkin=2017-8-24&numnight=3

exchange these values with your data:

checkin=2017-8-24 - the date the guest wants to arrive

&numnight=3 - the number of nights the guest wants to book


Example: Link to a booking form with dates and room pre populated:

https://www.beds24.com/booking2.php?checkin=2017-8-24&numnight=3&numadult=2&numchild=0&br1-32919=Book&roomid=32919

exchange these values with your data:

checkin=2017-8-24 - the date the guest wants to arrive

&numnight=3 - the number of nights the guest wants to book

&numadult=2 - number of adults

&numchild=0 - number of children

&br1-32919=Book - exchange 32919 with the room id the guest wants to book

&roomid=32919 - exchange 32919 with the room id the guest wants to book

Example: Booking form for a preselected room and dates

Create a URL like this:

https://www.beds24.com/booking2.php?propid=13434&checkin_hide=2016-11-24&numnight=2&numadult=1&br1-32906=Book

You need to define:

1) propid

2) one of checkin or checkin_hide (different date formats)

3) one of checkout, checkout_hide or numnight

4) numadult and/or numchild

5) br1-32906=Book where "br1 is offer 1, br2 is offer 2 etc. and 32906 is the room to book.
