WordPress Widgets

The Tour Operator Plugin currently includes two widgets.


Tour Map Widget

Tour Map Widget

Displays the starting location of the Tour on an interactive map using Google Maps. The map can be dragged, zoomed or viewed in various modes ("Map", "Satellite", "Terrain" etc).

The Widget will only appear on Tour pages.

Setup

The widget is included in the TourCMS plugin, to add it to your website just head to the Admin area of your site and in "Appearance" > "Widgets" drag the widget to one of the available Widget Areas. For sites with a sidebar the top of the sidebar works well.

You will need to request a free Google Maps API Key from Google, the Map will work without for testing purposes however it will display a warning message. Once you have a key just add it to the Widget via it's settings page, here you can also configure the title for the widget and how far it should be zoomed in by default.


Availability Widget

Availability Widget

Displays a simple two year month by month calendar showing which months currently have availability (up to 12 months in advance). Clicking on one of the available months loads the booking engine, depending on your selections in the Plugin setup page.

The Widget will only appear on Tour pages.

Setup

The widget is included in the TourCMS plugin, to add it to your website just head to the Admin area of your site and in "Appearance" > "Widgets" drag the widget to one of the available Widget Areas. For sites with a sidebar the top of the sidebar works well.

Currently the only configuration option is the Title text.


TourCMS Marketplace Widgets

The TourCMS Marketplace Widgets also work with WordPress, these are small snippets of JavaScript that can be generated in TourCMS to do things like list Tours or show lead in prices. Particularly handy if you plan to use the blog parts of WordPress and want to list some of your Tours along side.

Marketplace Widgets can be added to templates, posts/pages (with sufficient permission) or to "Text" Widgets.
