    Free Booking & Payment System for B&B

    Any other sites that provide similar services like Smoobu? Multi calendar linking, multi room booking, etc. Client is saying she wants something cheaper if possible,.............

    Multi-Language Website

    To manage the switching, whilst considering the SEO aspects, and to make it easy for future updates too. Just figured that there was probably a decent one out there. Would you recommend another method? I have heard things about making duplicate sites in different languages but have no experience with that. Any feedback or advice welcome. Thanks!

    We will write the translations between us. We don't want it automated. SEO is also an important consideration here

    Multi-Language Website

    I am being asked to create a three language website. The first one will be in English and then we will translate it into French and Spanish. We have French and Spanish speakers that work for the company so they will be able to provide the translations (we don't want to rely on anything automated as they often are not very good). Can anyone recommend a decent plugin for this?

    Flex MLS - Real Estate Website

    Would really love to see some more examples of sites that are using this plug in. I know this site is using something similar but not sure with WP Plugin or not. http://www.lloydpuertovallarta.com/Listings_by_Map/page_2660703.html

    Free Booking & Payment System for B&B

    Thanks Jack, I'm aware of having to swap the Ical link codes back and forth between air bnb and the pinpoint booking system. I assume it works that way between expedia, trip advisor etc too (with air bnb). It's just that Pinpoint can only sync with Air Bnb. I was hoping that if everything synced up well with Air bnb that info would be passed back to the website. But the customer care guy seemed to think it would only sync back sales made by Air bnb and not those days received to it from trip advisor etc. The client knows she will have to pay something for it and has accepted that now. We just need a decent solution. The original quote was just to sync with Air bnb, so I may have to point that out to her. But as always with these projects, things get added on as we go along.

    Flex MLS - Real Estate Website

    I've got to put together a Real Estate Website for a client. They use a system called FlexMLS which is a database that stores lots of properties in the area (and world wide). Various other real estate companies share this information on there. Does anyone out there have any experience using this? Can anyone give me examples of websites that use this plugin? Some pertinent questions have been raised I thought that I'd run them by you lot Any recommended themes? I see that there is a plugin for wordpress for it. Are there any themes that work best with this? Also my client was asking whether they could have a private database that could work in combination with the properties received to the site from Flex. Sounds like a headache. But I thought I would ask you guys anyway. They want to have videos of the properties, apparently Flex allows this They would like to have facilities such as a secure client area which would have Secure area for legal documents etc (security important) Short lists of properties they are interested in Mailing list that automatically sends out emails when similar properties come on the market Saved search criteria Thank you hive mind

    Free Booking & Payment System for B&B

    turned out that it isn't that Pinpoint Booking system isn't that great for our needs. Also the 50 bucks advertised within the plugin turned out to be closer to 200bucks if we wanted the life time version.... Otherwise its 70 per year No real way to design the style of the calendar (apart from CSS) Which is fine, I guess. Can only sync with Air Bnb and Google Calendar, NO ICAL integration! (very misleading advertising regarding this) My client wants to be able to sync her booking system with multiple sites such as Trip Advisor, Booking.com, Expedia, etc. They mostly seem to use the ICAL .ics format. Surely there must be a half decent booking system out there that can just link these all up? I thought of a work around of having them all link up with Air bnb and then have Air bnb link via Pinpoint to our booking system on our site, but talking to the technical support they say that wouldn't work (although not 100% he understands what I am saying as I think he is in Romania). Does anyone have any experience in this here? For example: if Expedia tells Air bnb that a room is booked and it then becomes blanked off on their calendar system, wouldn't that then be passed onto our website the next time Pinpoint synced up with Air Bnb?

    Tourist Website Advice Needed

    Thanks Again, I was just second guessing myself and thought I would ask you guys whether you thought a "Classified Listings" theme would be the place to start with a website like this: www.sanpancholife.com Or would there be a better theme type to start with?

    Thanks again guys. Any recommendations for a "classifieds" listings type theme? I think I might start with that and go from there. Also found Maps Marker Pro plugin, which seems to cover the map side, anyone have any experience with that?

    Free Booking & Payment System for B&B

    told my client that I could find a free one, as some of them are ambiguously worded and I thought that some were free, they already haggled me down a bit on price, and I don't want them to say that the cost should be carried by me. Anyway I thought I would let you know that I found a free one called Pinpoint Booking System, which has tons of great stuff like linking to the Air Bnb calendar, free paypal payment, but only one calendar on the free version. Still its only 50bucks to upgrade so I think this one is the main contender at the moment
