Adding the Package Booking Form to Your WordPress Site’s Front-end

After the service package addon is active by default, our packages page is automatically created on this page, with a package booking shortcode added. So you can add this page to the WordPress menu to start booking packages. If this page has not been created, then you need to add the package booking shortcode manually using the following steps.

you need to add a package booking form to the site’s front end. For that, you must first create a WordPress post or page. To create a page, go to Pages > Add New, and give a name to the page:

Package Shortcode

Then you’ll need to add the step-by-step booking form to the page. To add it, click the BookingPress button in the editor.

Package Shortcode

Choose “BookingPress Package Booking” in the dropdown and click “OK.” The shortcode will appear in the text:

Alternatively, you can manually type in the shortcode [bookingpress_package_form]. And that’s it!

Additionally, to showcase a particular service package on the front-end, utilize the shortcode: [bookingpress_package_form package=your_package_id]. Simply replace “your_package_id” with the actual ID of the package you intend to display.
