How to Make the Number of Adults & Children Flexible in the Hotel Booking Plugin

Since Hotel Booking version 3.7.2, you can make the number of adults and children change dynamically based on the guest’s search parameters and keep the tiered pricing set via Rates.

For example, in the previous version, if the accommodation capacity was two adults and one child, the room wouldn’t appear eligible for a parent with two children simply because there was a “one child” limit in the settings. In reality, a bed for an adult could be used by a child – and even vice versa in some types of properties.

The new plugin version allows you to bring more flexibility to this restriction by designating three separate capacity limits: for adults, children, and the total “capacity”.

This is a little bit different from using the “Guests” field since you can still have a tiered pricing rates system for children and adults separately. The rate will be updated dynamically based on the number of adults and children the guest chooses at checkout.

How to Add Google Analytics to WordPress

Looking how to add Google Analytics to WordPress? There are two major approaches:

  1. Manually without plugins. Technically, you’ll need to get your Google Analytics code snippet and insert it into your WordPress website (we’re going to tell you where). Then you’ll be able to access the Google Analytics dashboard from your Google Account online in one place. The major benefit of this approach is that it doesn’t require reliance on third-party dependencies. As for the cons, for complete newbies, it might be a bit intimidating to work with code and the entire procedure might require additional time and effort.
  2. Integrate Google Analytics by connecting WordPress Google Analytics plugins. You might want to opt for this method if you want an easier way to connect Google Analytics to WordPress, need more tools or (thanks to some plugins) access your Analytics dashboard from your WordPress website.
