    Hello

    I have tested sirvoy system, and i am very suprised and interested in this product, but there is 1 thing that is pulling me back, the system doesnt support danish language. Is this language on the fly or maybe i could help with the translation ( for frontend ). And the other thing is that i cant find this “Manage the cleaning of your rooms” function.

    Thanks in advance

    Regards

      Hi Süleyman
      Thanks for your feedback. We would appreciate any help with the translation of the frontend booking module to danish. We can reimburse you for your efforts by credit your account with 100 credits upon completion of the translation.
      You can activate the Manage the cleaning of your rooms function by going to Settings -> Other Options -> Other settings. When activated you can check the cleaning on the Units tab.
      Regards
      Mats

    The wordpress plugin has been updated and is available again. The plugin now also includes a hotel booking widget that can be used in the sidebar of your WordPress website.

    Can this plugin be skinned and integrated seamlessly into a custom theme ? Ideally it would be great to be able to use template code to add in the forms so that they can be skinned in line with the theme styles ? Possible ?

    thanks

    Hi,

    Is there a good way to insert your booking engine via PHP code? If so, What is the code I should use to output the Booking engine in for exampel footer.php or page.php?

    Thanks,

    Alex

    Hi and Thanks for the answer!

    I have a new question now. The website I am making for a client offers different rooms at their hotel, so my question is if I can send the visitors from the website to a different location depending on where they were on my clients website. Lets say a visitor on the website are looking at a double room with sea view and decides to book that room, can I somehow change the target URL so he comes direct to the booking for the double room with sea view?

    If so, How do I do that?

    I like the product. The only thing that holds me back is the lack of Joomla integration.

      Hi Leonard,

      I´m sorry for the late reply.
      We have no Joomla module, but by using the code under Settings-> Your website-> A booking form for your website-> How to install the booking form you can integrate the booking form on your website.

      Kind regards,
      Sirvoy Support Team

    Does the WordPress plugin display the booking system within an iframe? Also, is there a plugin for Joomla?

      Here is more information if you want the booking form as a iframe: Booking form.

      We don´t have a Joomla plugin but the information you find in the link above is working for Joomla too.

    Can your system be integrated without the use of an iframe? Iframes are old school. Do you use an API?

    Does the booking engine adapt to mobile sites, i.e. would it work with a responsive site?

      Hi.

      Yes, the booking engine works with a responsive site. For example, you can use use a booking form displayed in iframe with auto height.
