Booking System – Creating/Maintaining Calendars

Booking Calender

So potential guests can book pitches online I needed to set up a calendar for each pitch to show availability, there are 5 pitches in total.  This was done by selecting the WPBooking plugin on the wordpress menu and then simply ‘add new’:

From here each pitch was given a name and bookings already made for this pitch where added:

I amended the colour of the booking states to fit more with the designs and colours used on the site, see below:

Booking Form

Once the calendars were set up I created a booking form (see below) which will appear under each calendar on the booking screen, potential visitors can then select the days they would like to stay and submit their request with their name and email address.  I created each field which would appear and was interested to find out that there was an email field type, the booking form plugin validates and checks the email address is entered correctly.

This is a screen shot of the creation of the booking form and the field the of the email address, the name field above is a text field.  Both are required entries.
