See the "Documentation" section in the Plugin settings for customisation options.


2.1 Embeded booking page for a room

You can specify the room ID in the short code for example:

[beds24-landing roomid="123"]

[beds24-embed roompid="123"]

2.2 Embedded booking page for a specific property

You can specify the property ID in the short code for example:

[beds24-landing propid="123"]

[beds24-embed propid="123"]

2.3 Embedded booking page for all properties

You can specify the owner ID in the short code for example:

[beds24-landing ownerid="123"]

[beds24-embed ownerid="123"]

2.4 Embedded booking page for a group of properties

If you want to create a booking page for a group only use the "custom" parameter: custom="group=NameOfGroup" for example:

[beds24-landing ownerid="123" custom="group=NameOfGroup" ]

[beds24-embed ownerid="123" custom="group=NameOfGroup" ]

3 Add Booking Widgets

Widgets are inserted via short codes. You can generate the short codes for one or multiple properties. To generate a short code for multiple properties set the selector for "Property" = All SETTING->BOOKING ENGINE->BOOKING WIDGETS. Copy the short code from there and paste it where you want to display the widget.

3.1 Booking Box, Booking Strip, Availability Calendar

Short Codes for Booking Box, Booking Strip, Availability Calendar are generated in the widget designer in the Beds24 control panel in {#fas:cog}} (SETTINGS) BOOKING ENGINE > BOOKING WIDGETS. Copy the short code from there and paste it where you want to display the widget on your Wordpress page..

Generate the widget in {#fas:cog}} (SETTINGS) BOOKING ENGINE > BOOKING WIDGETS

Paste the generated short code to where you want to display the widget

If you want to allow guests to search by certain criteria:

  • first create the search criteria in {#fas:cog}} (SETTINGS) BOOKING ENGINE > MULTI BOOKING PAGE > SEARCH CRITERIA then go to {#fas:cog}} (SETTINGS) BOOKING ENGINE > MULTI BOOKING PAGE >PROPERTY SETTINGS and assign the applicable criteria to each property
  • Once you have set and assigned your search criteria you can go to {#fas:cog}} (SETTINGS) BOOKING ENGINE > BOOKING WIDGETS. Set PROPERTY = ALL and design your widget, ensuring that you change "Search Filter" to show the search criteria in your booking widget.
  • Generate the code for the widget and paste it into the source code (Set the Wordpress editor to "Text") where you want to display the widget.

3.2 Booking Button, Booking Link

Booking Button, Booking Link are inserted via these short codes:

  • Booking button: [beds24-button]
  • Booking link: [beds24-link]

Paste it where you want to display the widget on your Wordpress page.

For customization options for the buttons and links see the "Booking Widgets" section in SETTINGS > Beds24 in Wordpress.

4 Developer Options

Developers or users with basic knowledge of HTML, PHP and CSS can change the plugin code.

4.1 Developer Options for legacy booking widgets

Only use this method if you can not use the widgets generated with the widget designer in (SETTINGS) BOOKING ENGINE > BOOKING WIDGETS.

Example: Change the default values of [beds24-box]

Open your Wordpress dashboard and go to SETTINGS->BEDS24 then click on "Edit"

Search for this file in the right navigation: beds24-online-booking/theme-files/beds24-box.php

Click on on the link to edit:

To change the default number of guests search for:
if (!isset($_REQUEST['numadult'])) $_REQUEST['numadult'] = 2;
and change 1 to your default number of guests e.g. 
if (!isset($_REQUEST['numadult'])) $_REQUEST['numadult'] = 1;
Click "Update File"
To change the default number of nights search for:
if (!isset($_REQUEST['numnight'])) $_REQUEST['numnight'] = 1;
and change 1 to your default min number of nights e.g. 
if (!isset($_REQUEST['numnight'])) $_REQUEST['numnight'] = 3;
Click "Update File"
To change the maximum number of guests of  search for
<?php for ($i=1; $i<=12; $i++) 
change 12 to your max number of guests e.g. 
<?php for ($i=1; $i<=4; $i++) 
Click "Update File"

You can save the file in your theme directory if you want to avoid over-writing if you update the plugin.
