Grav is it good to build an Hotel or Booking site for my guest house with Grav cms?? Thanks
Grav is good for building a booking site. I used it for rental booking by using the service from http://timekit.io. I see Timekit is now commercial, but it is affordable with a free option. It integrates with a Google Calendar. I created a timekit widget for each boat for rent. Each boat has a different colour calendar. When a customer books online, you get an email where you either accept or deny the reservation. When accepted, the availability status is changed on the the Google Calendar in real time. I can see what boats are rented by looking at my Google Calendar which is also embedded on the site so customers can see availability.
The site is http://portofcall.ca/rentals. It is winter now so there is no activity. Just offering an idea for you. It was really easy to set up, good for a non-programmer developer.
Thank you for your response… Can we keep in touch coz i really need your help… We have a guesthouse in rome and we try to build a simple website for booking like i said before… But now that i start using grav a dont understand how to start to build one with grav…?? Can you help us please? I just need to know how to properly install the skeletons or themes coz everytime I try to work on it i only see blank paper where i can put image and text… Thank you i cant find any videos on how to start to create a website…
I learned Grav from the documentation site. https://learn.getgrav.org/. I am happy to help with the Booking stuff, I could provide your with a copy of that site if you like. One of the many things I like about Grav is how portable it is. I can simply zip up the site and move it to a server or share it with a friend. All it needs is to be run through a webserver. The Skeletons are a great way to fast-track. Download the one you like and unzip it in your web-server root. This is a good article to get your started: https://getgrav.org/blog/development-strategy.
Mikegcox oh great i really appreciate your help… I have a question about web server root… I used xammp:
And :localhost/grav is my directory… Is that the web server root?
Maybe one day if you come here in italy we offer you a room ect =)
And if you can send me the copy of the site just to start to work at it as an example or start a new one based on your site… At least you could give me more tips thanks
Send me a private message with your email address and I will share the site with you. I am not a great developer by any means, but this did work well last summer during the rental season.
to get a skeleton going, you want to unzip the skeleton in the root so that you get to it by going
