  1. I have added import url of external calendar to one my property. When i have done manually sync then booking data from external calendar have been copied to our calendar. But I want this process auto sync. I think this auto sync process can be done using the crone job but issue is that I have no idea which crone job is set to in my host. Or may be i need to do other setting in the plugin. Please help for this

  2. Hi, I am interesting to buy your theme but I need to have an images slider instead of a single image in the home page. Is it possible with this theme;
    Thank you in advance

  3. I want the one big calendar for the front site that calendar shows all booking dates of all accommodations.

    So in theme there are any “short code” available for it! If it is not, then can give the function name that gives me all booking dates and unavailable dates for all accommodation so using that return data object i can set calendar using these data in website page.

    Please give me some hint for this thing.

    Thanks In Advance.

    1. Hi Cherri,
      Thanks for your request however there is no option on the front-end. You may find such calendar at back-end (Dashboard>Bookings>Calendar). Could you clarify why do you need such calendar on front-end?

      1. I want that full calendar to show all booking date of all accommodation at one place so my user can show which dates is booked for which accommodation.

  4. When any user try to booking accommodation and payment process not completed(Not successful payment) that means those booking payment show as pending amount in booking section.

    But problem is that those booking date consider as unavailable in calendar of the accommodation booking detail page that means we can not booking for those date.

    That means if any user not pay money for booking however the specific dates will be selected as booking then no other user will book those dates.

    1. Hi,
      The availability is blocked when a booking is placed, because the system is waiting for a confirmation of the transaction from the payment gateway. The property should not be booked by another user in this period. The booking plugin waits for this confirmation as long as you set it in Accommodation > Settings > Payment Gateways (Pending Payment Time). If no confirmation comes in that period, e.g. when the payment was not completed, the booking automatically changes its status to Abandoned and the dates open booking again.

  5. I have checked this link (https://themes.getmotopress.com/oceanica/accommodation/comfort-triple-room/?#booking-form-164) when we try to make submit reservation booking form then it will go to search availability page.

    I think this the wrong thing because after submit reservation form we need to go to booking confirmation page.

    For my need, you can check this booking form “https://themes.getmotopress.com/villagio/accommodation/cuvee-hualalai-estate/?#booking-form-44” of Villagio theme. In this booking form, reservation form is submit to booking confirmation form.

    So how can i do this same process of booking of Villagio theme to my purchased oceanica theme?

    1. Hi Cherri,
      You should navigate to Dashboard>Accommodation>Settings>find and enable Direct Booking option. This will make the forms of certain accommodation types to check availability without going to search results page.

      1. Thanks, Stacy. I bought the theme on your information, but it is not correct. The date picker / date field does not respect the date format setting of wordpress. Is there a way I can fix that?

  6. Hello, I would like to know how can i change my header image size on front page that is width of the screen? No matter which image or resizes i do, it still is same size or smaller than the Front Page lower bar column. I could not find any documentation on the size, nor did i manage to find size edit option on php header.
    Appreciate your help.

  7. Does this theme enable presentation and booking of a single property only? e.g. I have two apartments in a house, rented separately incl. different pricing etc. Can I list them both using this theme?

    1. Hi Al,
      Yes, sure. You can rent any other property type instead of default rooms. Thus you will create 2 accommodation types naming them as your 2 apartments with different rates, description etc. And each accommodation type would have 1 accommodation so once it is booked the apartment becomes unavailable. Feel free to test it at live demo and contact us if you have any additional question.

    1. Yes, there is used our Hotel Booking plugin in this theme where Stripe payment gateway is available by default.

  8. Hi, does this theme has already included Motopress booking plugin? or I have to buy this plugin apart? thank you

    1. Hi Natalia,
      Hotel Booking plugin is integrated in Oceanica theme by default. It is suggested for installation after you activate theme on your WordPress.

      1. Hello Brend,
        The plugin is integrated into theme by default. Could you clarify your case more detailed? Probably you tested Hotel Booking plugin on our demo and you received an email offering to purchase the plugin you have tested. However it is not a bill and if you own a theme with plugin included you may ignore that email.
        Unfortunately we could not find any purchase made on our website using current email address.
