  3. Hi, the theme is awesome, but is there a way to edit the hero from the home, for example to have an image instead of a slider? or have a complete different component?

    1. Hi Alejandro,
      The slides of the slideshow are the child pages of the Front Page, so you can remove them or switch them from child to the parent pages to disable slideshow and display the static featured image. Otherwise you may edit the Home page with the default editor to change the page template.

    2. Does the room price compatible with multi currency plugin?

    Thank you.

    1. Hi Cris,

      1. It is possible to integrate the WooCommerce checkout page with WooCommerce payment gateways to the booking flow by using the HB WooCommerce Payments addon https://motopress.com/products/hotel-booking-woocommerce-payments/
      2. There is MultiCurrency switcher addon available https://motopress.com/products/hotel-booking-multi-currency/ You can use it to show the prices in different currencies, while the payment is made using the default currency that you set up at settings of the Hotel Booking plugin.
