1. Download the JoeBooking appointment plugin latest version zip file. Once you purchase the Pro version, you will get your personal download link that you can always follow to grab the latest version available.
  2. In your WordPress admin panel please go to Plugins > Add New, choose the Upload option, then upload the JoeBooking plugin zip file. This part is pretty standard for any other WordPress plugin.
  3. Once you got the JoeBooking package file uploaded, please click the Activate Plugin link. This will trigger the internal installation process that will automatically setup the plugin for you.
  4. That's all, the JoeBooking menu item will appear in your WordPress admin panel. Now you can instantly access the admin backend of the appointment booking plugin to start managing your services and clients.
  5. To enable the self-service booking form option for your clients, you can add this shortcode to any of your posts or pages:
    [joebooking]

    The shortcode entry is also required for some other features like iCal export and automatic reminders. The plugin will give you a friendly notification in the admin panel if you have not yet set up the shortcode.

    You can also make use of additional options for the shortcode:

    • fix_location
    • fix_resource
    • fix_service

    You will need to provide the id of the elements that you would like to use, for example:

    [joebooking fix_resource="1"]

    You can supply several options separated by comma:

    [joebooking fix_service="1,3"]
