I'm using Wordpress and the iFrame calendar is too wide. When I manually adjust the width in the iFrame it still is goofy. I then tried to look it up on mobile and got a blank screen.

Also (back to desktop) when you click on the dates and the "want to price this out" yellow box comes up it acts all skitish and jumps around making it hard to enter data.

Any ideas?

Steve can you send me a link to the page so I can play with it?


Steve Sasman, December 2, 2014:

sure, (it's a live link, but a hidden one so no one's really on it yet)
John Amato, December 3, 2014:

Hmmmm... when I go there (, I just get a blank page...

Steve Sasman, December 3, 2014:

I've had it do that too, especially on mobile, but I just checked it again, and it does show the BV iframe. Not sure what's causing the blank issue
Steve Sasman, December 3, 2014:

Ok, try this one...
Steve Sasman, December 4, 2014:

Ok I guess it needed a / at the end of the URL... I just updated the link above. The scrolling is really not ideal. Any way to make it fit or any plans to use responsive design? Thx!

I also have another example live at with the 3 properties. How do I separate out the 2 in Flagstaff from the Scottsdale one so a person doesn't get confused and order up a wrong location? (sorry if this is a different topic)
John Amato, December 8, 2014:

Try adding this parameter: responsive=true to the end of the URL for the frame, so that the whole URL for the iFrame is this:

As for splitting them out - so do you need two versions of the multi-property search? One for Flagstaff properties and another for Scottsdale properties?

I tried adding like this: <iframe src='' width=825 height=700 as well as to the href= URL and I didn't notice anything different? Not sure if the & was the right connector to the existing URL string? It still seems to need scrolling and acts a little weird. It works, but just not ideal.

As far as the multi-property, yes having just the Flagstaff Props on one would be great for now. Only one Scottsdale so can just keep that by itself. thanks so much for the help. I think this is going to work with a little more tweaking and me adjusting to the software!

Sorry Steve, I assumed this was the Multi-Property Search widget, but the above URL you're using is for the individual booking calendar for a specific property.

If you'd like to use the mobile version of that, try this URL:

Unfortunately, I'm not aware of any reliable technique for accurately detecting what size screen the requesting device is. There's a lot of banter on the internet about it, but it's mostly developers complaining that there is no way to do it.
John Amato, December 10, 2014:

Steve as for the second request of having a version of the Multi-Property Search widget that only shows Flagstaff props: have you played around yet with the "Property Type" feature?

It enables you to define your own property types, and then you can assign those types to each property. I'm thinking you might be able to define two types: Flagstaff and Scottsdale, and assign them to the right properties. Then, there's a simple way to filter the Multi-Property Search widget to filter on only one property type.

I know that was a mouthful, so let me know if you want some help with this, Ok?
Steve Sasman, December 10, 2014:

Yes, the property type worked great...Thank you!
Steve Sasman, December 10, 2014:

I had switched the widget several times trying to find the best one...

I still would love to be able to adjust the iframe size to avoid the scrolling & display issues the widgets have inside my wordpress site.
John Amato, December 11, 2014:

Steve can you post the link again to the page to see the most-recent results?
Steve Sasman, December 11, 2014:

My permanent live link is I have 2 iframes in there right now, just testing..
