Search Add-on

Using the Search Add-on, you can create a search widget that allows your website visitors to search for available dates in your calendars.

Displaying results

The website visitor will see a search form with two datepickers, one for the start date, and one for the end date. After he clicks the search button, the calendars which that do not have any booked events in the selected period will be displayed under the form as a list.

If the calendar is linked to a page, a “View” button will also appear and the entire box will be linked to that specific page.

Inserting a Search Widget

Using the shortcode generator

You can use the Shortcode Generator to generate the shortcode used to embed a Search Widget. Open a page and click the Add Calendar button.

This will open the shortcode generator modal. Select the third tab called “Insert Search Widget”.

You have the option to include all calendars in the search or only select specific calendars, and select the language.

Click “Insert Search Widget” and you are done.

Using the Gutenberg module

If you are using Gutenberg, you can embed the search widget using the Gutenberg module.

Using the shortcode

Another option to embed the search widget is to manually create the shortcode.

The shortcode options are:

calendars – (numbers list/all) – the IDs of the calendars separated by comma, for example “1,2,3”, which can be found

language – (auto/en/fr/etc.) – the language of the calendar, ‘auto’ will detect the language automatically

title– (yes/no) – show (yes) or hide (no) the widget title.

You can see a demo on the Search Add-on page.
