1. Can I use other colors and text as legend items?
Yes, it’s easy to customize the legend. Apply your own colors and text and translate them into any language. You can even use split colors. You can create a different legend for every calendar.
2. I bought the full version but haven’t receive a download link?
The plugin is sent to the e-mail address you used to pay with. It can take some time, but if you haven’t received it after 30 minutes, please contact us and tell us your order ID. We will send you the plugin.
3. How can I show a calendar in a post or on a page?
You can do this by clicking the ‘Add Calendar’ button that is displayed above the text editor when you edit a page or post. This button will generate a shortcode, based on your preferences.
4. I use the free version, can I upgrade to the Premium version without losing data?
Yes. You can install the Premium version without having to delete the free version. This gives you the time to apply your data to the Premium version.
5. What is a shortcode?
A shortcode of WP Simple Booking Calendar looks like this (without spaces between the [ and ].
[ wpsbc id=”1″ title=”yes” legend=”yes” dropdown=”yes” start=”1″ display=”2″ language=”auto” month=”0″ year=”0″ jump=”no” history=”1″ tooltip=”3″ theme=”classic” weeknumbers=”no” highlighttoday=”no” ]
When this shortcode is inserted into your page or post (in the admin panel) it will generate the calendar with ID ‘1’ on the front-end, with all the above settings applied.
You don’t have to write your own shortcode, there’s a generator for that. Simply click on the ‘Add Calendar’ button when you’re editing a page or post and a pop-up will open. You can choose between all settings there. Here’s the meaning of every setting from the shortcode as well:
