    Hi.

    Just starting out with this plugin and trying to figure out the easiest way to deal with this scenario.

    We have chalets, they are two bedroom with different bed configurations. For example Chalet one can sleep 5 people, this could be 2 adults and 3 children or 5 adults or 1 adult and 1 child etc, whats the most efficient way of allowing this to be searched or would I need to create a new accomodation type for each option? e.g.
    Type 1 – 2 adults 3 kids
    Type 2 – 2 adults 2 kids
    Type 3 – 2 adults 1 kids
    etc etc.

    Your advice is appreciated.

    Hi Stephanie,

    It is not good idea to create few accommodation types for the same bedroom as it would be difficult to control availability. In this case it would be better to hide parameter ‘Children’ and edit translation of ‘Adults’ to something general like ‘Guests’ or ‘Persons’. At the moment you can do that by placing code below to style.css file of Child Theme (or Appearance>Customize Additional CSS)

    .mphb_sc_search-children,
    .mphb_widget_search-children,
    .mphb-room-type-children-capacity,
    .mphb-check-children-date-wrapper{
        display:none !important;
    }

    Later will add an option to hide children in easier way.
    In order to edit Translation of ‘Adults’ parameter you can try using Loco Translate, Poedit plugins.

    Best regards,
    John

    Hi Stephanie,

    You need to edit language file that is used at your WordPress. Thus if your WordPress is in English you need to edit English translation but not the template.
    Please try to edit template file and naming Adults back again. Then go to edit language file and change its translation.

    That would be easy if there was an English file

    Hi Naomi,

    You can edit translation of Adults by editing language file of Hotel Booking plugin. You can try using third party plugin Loco Translate for editing translation right in your dashboard.

    Do not hesitate to email us if you need our assistance.

    Hi John,
    I did install the Loco Translate plugin and was able to make the changes and save the content and the system says the .pot file has been updated but still I cannot see the new text in the page.
    Note I did not create a new translation file but just update some words in the existing one.

    Is there a specific procedure to be followed to publish the new text?

    Regards
    Naomi

    Hi John,
    I followed step by step what it’s said in the link, but the change from adult to guest doesn’t show online. I don’t understand where I do wrong.

    Hi Naomi,

    Could you specify the language of your WordPress site? Is English (United States) or some other?
    You can also submit a request for us. We’ll guide you through with screenshots.

    Any update on getting this into an updated version of the booking plugin so we don’t have to jump through the hoops above to fix this issue?
