It's come to our attention that there is a bug in Apple's Safari
web browser that prevents it from being able to deal with 3rd-party iframes.
iframes are the method used to embed third-party software widgets into your own web pages. Bookerville's Public Availability & Booking Calendars are one example, but so is the Public Master Calendar, the (read-only) Availability Calendars, and the Public Inquiry Forms. The same Safari bug will also prevent other embedded widgets from working properly if there is anything more than a simple display involved. For this reason, the Bookerville Rate Table widgets should work Ok.
Note that this only applies to the Safari browser, so it only affects those guests using Apple's iPhones, iPads, iTouches, etc. All other major browsers support 3rd-party iframes with no reported problems, so embedded Bookerville calendars will work fine in FireFox, Internet Explorer (IE), Google's Chrome, and others.The safest, most reliable way to integrate with Bookerville
is to link directly to your public calendars using standard anchor tags, like this:
<a href="http://www.bookerville.com/CalendarDisplay?property=20">Availability & Booking Calendar</a>
Where the "property=20" part is replaced with the identifier of your property. As always, if you need any assistance with integrating (or anything else), just ask us: firstname.lastname@example.orgUsing standard links is the most hassle-free way to ensure a smooth, glitch-free booking request experience for your customers.
If you would like to use a button-like graphic image instead of a link, you can use something like this:
This will work just as well as a standard link, and the HTML code to make this appear in your web page looks like this:
<a href="http://www.bookerville.com/CalendarDisplay?property=20"><img src="http://www.photos.bookerville.com/bookerville/general/ForumFodder/bookOnlineNow.jpg"></a>If you'd like a custom button made for your website, contact us and we will work with you to do that.
