Wordpress Plugin

Please note! Wordpress plugin may not work with some custom themes of WordPress and some specific plugins. If you installed the plugin and all the data is correct but the page does not show up, please try inserting widget (option #2)

1. Search for Simplybook WordPress plugin in the list of plugins in the WP catalogue and add it to your website (it is called Online Appointment Scheduling Widget and Booking System).

2. Go to WordPress plugin settings and insert your company login to the corresponding box there. (the one in url of your admin page, e.g in the link, image is company name).

Select the theme, timeline and colors for the client view. Save settings

3. In your WordPress admin site navigate to Pages and create a new page specifically for bookings (you can also add it to the already existing page if you wish, the process is the same). Then, paste [simplybook] tag into that page.

Errors while setting up the plugin.

If you got the error "Seems the method cannot be found on your server. Possible reasons may include: PHP option 'allow_url_fopen' is not enabled, PHP CURL is not enabled. Please ask your hoster for support regarding absence of required methods."

  • Please check if your PHP has the necessary methods (allow_url_fopen and PHP CURL) on.
  • To check this, you can install PHP Settings plugin.
  • After you have checked and the necessary methods are Off, please contact your hosting provider and request activating them.
  • If those methods are On, there may be another reason that prevents plugin from displaying on your page, please contact our support and we will try to help you.

If you receive the message that Fatal error occurred when installing the plugin most likely you will need to update your PHP version, the preferable version is 5.3 and higher.


1. Please copy the code from Settings -> Bookings on Webpage or Facebook -> Booking widget for your own website -> Get widget code.
