    Booking Engine

    If you installed mohobook in the root of your website, the following code should be inserted into the web page where you want the mohobook booking engine to appear (your page should be a minimum of 900 pixels wide to ensure the software displays correctly). If you installed mohobook in a sub-directory, you will need to modify the paths in the below code to reflect the correct location.

    Note, if you are integrating into a WordPress site, you will require a plug-in that allows you to enter and preserve raw code in the body of a WordPress page, for example, Raw HTML.

    Booking Widget

    The following code is an example of how to create a simple form that is capable of passing dates directly into the booking engine, thus landing your visitor on the room availability page.

    Language Default

    To have the booking engine default to the second language, add the following code directly above the standard embed code shown in the first example above.

    Hidden Rooms

    To have the booking engine hide certain rooms, add the following code directly above the standard embed code shown in the first example above. Replace example room ids shown below with actual room ids, if you are hiding more than one room separate with commas. You can see the room id for any room by opening it in edit mode in the Frontdesk, it is the very last parameter in the URL, for example; r=1
