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

Generate a widget using the widget designer

  • Choose the widget you want to generate.
  • Customise the settings you want to adjust.
  • Click on "Refresh" to see a preview.
  • Click on "Get Code" and copy the provided code snippet.
  • Go go the page on your web site where you want to add the widget and paste it into the HTML. If you do not know how to do this check the help for the CMS or sitebuilder you are using how to add HTML to your site or ask your web designer to do this for you.
Note: If you want to display multiple widgets on one page make sure you to remove the first part of the code for the second widget.  Paste the code for the second widget in from this line:
<!-- Place this div on your page where you want the widget to show -->
Note: The widgets require your page to have UTF-8 language encoding. 

If you do not have JQuery

If you do not have jQuery and jQueryUI installed on your web page add the following to the <head> section of your page.

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.12.4/jquery.min.js"></script>


If you do not have JQueryUI

The widget will attempt to self load jqueryUI, if this is not working properly or causing conflicts you can add it to your page after the jquery script.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.12.1/themes/smoothness/jquery-ui.css">
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.12.1/jquery-ui.min.js"></script>

If you want to optimize the loading sizes, it should be enough just to load the JQueryUI datepicker modules.

The widget can be forced to not attempt to load it's own JQueryUI by setting the following parameter.

loadJQueryUI: false,
