Hi!
When I install this plugin, this is the error I get:

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare rtbcnb_confirm_new_bookings() ...... wp-content/plugins/confirm-new-bookings-for-rtb.php on line 30

How can I fix this?

Hi @wendigox. Sorry I'm just seeing this now. Gist doesn't give me any notification of new comments.

This error means that the function is being declared twice. Maybe you copied the code in twice by accident? Maybe you've already added it to your theme's functions.php file or something? Maybe you've got two copies of the plugin activated?

Hi NateWr

it is me mumbomedia you've help me in the support forum of wordpress.
@see https://wordpress.org/support/topic/change-date-and-timepicker-to-jquery-ui/

Our client want that the reservations would be automatically confirm if there is a free table available.
The max-size of this is stored in the max_partysize -setting of your plugin.
This should be no problem to get this information.
Actualy I have some issues with this plugin:

  1. The plugin doesn't change the message provided after the request is submitted.
    It is

Thanks, your booking request is waiting to be confirmed. Updates will be sent to the email address you provided.
but in this case it doesn't make any sense, because of the accepting of the reservation.
So I need to change this.
Are there a hook which I can use to alter the message regarding to the status I am setting up.

  1. A confirm email isn't send to the guest of the restaurant. So the guest doesn't know that the reservation is confirmed or rejected.
    I need to change this also and need the hook to alter this behaviour.

Kind regards

mumbomedia

Hi @ColanInfotech, thanks for letting me know. The conditional expression was reversed on accident. Line 32 should read:

if ( empty( $booking->ID ) ) {

I've updated the gist now so anyone else coming along should get a working copy.

Hi @NateWr,

The plugin is working. it automatically marks as completed all new booking requests. The issue I'm having is with e-mail confirmation to clients.
Is is possible to send the confirmation e-mail immediately after the form submission? thanks

@MiriShehu @NateWr

If I understand correctly the system only sets the reservation as COMPLETED/CONFIRMED but does NOT send the confirm notification email?

If so, in that case this nice little plugin would be pretty useless in my opinion..?

@MiriShehu and @iWebbers, sorry for the late reply. GitHub doesn't send notifications about comments in gists.

The plugin will still send the "New Request Email" under Bookings > Settings > Notifications. So you can adjust that email to reflect that the booking has been accepted.

@NateWr
So, the email issue I have is that the administrator is not getting emails.
Everything else works fine, client gets email notification, and the reservation is auto-confirmed.
Configuration seems perfect. I have no clue why the "restaurant" does not receive emails.

Problem solved: it was NOT a plugin issue.
