Add online bookings to your website

The more observant among you may have noticed that we added a new site content feature recently, and it's now time to let everyone in on it. It's a new site add-on, designed to handle online bookings right on your website, for renting or scheduling anything - and everything! - from rooms to bikes (and a whole lot of stuff in between). 

It's also one of the most popular feature requests we’ve received in the past: a way to help BnB and guesthouse owners you add a booking calendar to your website, with built-in booking features for your clients. If you need to add booking or reservation features to your existing website, or need to make a bed and breakfast website, its now a whole lot easier with the Booking add-on.

Responsive website design made easy

The Internet and devices used to access it have moved a long way from their more humble beginnings. It used to be simple to design a website, with pretty much only one way to access it online: from a fixed computer screen, that wasn’t very big. Times have changed, and these days it’s almost impossible de know what kind of screen or device will be used to view web pages when you first begin to create a website. That makes it hard to make decisions about key website design principles, like the size of the site and its content, and how best to layout pages and site navigation.

Although a response to this problem has been around for a while, it’s not until very recently that designing websites with all kinds of different screen resolutions in mind has really gained momentum among web designers.
