Presale question:

Can I translate everything within the theme with this plugin?


Or any other free plugin?

Thank you very much.

Hi mangozebra,

Thanks for your interest.

I’ve not used Loco Translate, but assuming it can translate custom post types, pages, posts, and wp_option yes it can translate everything.

I’ve tested the theme and booking plugin with PoEdit and WPML, both of which will allow you to translate everything.

PoEdit is free but only supports a single language: http://poedit.net/

WPML is not free but supports multiple languages: http://wpml.org

Kind regards


Is it possible to disable confirmation email upon booking? I realize the QNS Booking plugin will send email to the consumer/customer even when they have not yet made any payments.

Hi ihsan89,

Yes, you would just need to comment out the line of code which sends the email – this would be pretty simple to do.

Kind regards


appreciate the prompt reply,

should i edit the plugin or edit the pages?

I’m kinda lost here right now.

Hi ihsan89,

Please open a support ticket and I’ll be happy to help: http://quitenicestuff.ticksy.com/

Hi I’ve opened a ticket #474868 – It’s very important because it may mean that when you add too many blocked dates the theme stops working correctly. Please look asap. Thank you.

Hi kaybee-beauty,

I’ve responded to your ticket.

Is it possible to sort a list of rooms on the side …/accommodations/ ?

Hi mtorlow,

You mean add a list containing a link to each room in the sidebar? Sure you can do this with the “Custom Menu” widget.

If you need help setting this up open a support ticket and I’ll be happy to help: https://quitenicestuff.ticksy.com/

Do you have a demo admin site where I can test the functionality?

Hi lutfi9,

Thanks for your interest.

Sorry there isn’t an admin demo – but if you have any other questions about functionality please feel free to ask and I’ll be happy to help.

Kind regards

Hello there, before i purchase i would like to know if this template will allow me to change/remove/modify the filter options for booking. I would like to use this template theme for to book yacht charters. I would need some of the terminology to change also. Please let me know if this is possible or if it require a lot of extra coding to accomplish. Thanks!

Hi yourdesignplanner,

Thanks for your interest.

Could you elabourate what you mean by “filter options” please?

You can change/modify/remove booking form fields via the WordPress dashboard, and you can add seasonal price filters.

Kind regards

This theme is great but the biggest flaw with it is paypal IPN (Instant Notification Notification) . I spent all my time building a beautiful website for my client. Then we realized that when people dont log into paypal to pay, they are still registered as paid, and it created a wild confusion in the management, when they thing that people are getting rooms for free.. we had to log into paypal to see if the name had paid.. it was very awful process, that i now hate the qns booking system. I am working on fixing the script to make sure people actually paid, but if i knew i would not have bought it.

Hi kossik8,

Thanks for purchasing!

Sorry to hear about the problems you’re having, I agree PayPal IPN integration would be useful, I’ll certainly consider it for a future update.

Kind regards

Paypal IPN Integration Fix

Hi All,

I had the same problem with Paypal . If they cancelled from paypal the booking was still made!

A quick fix:

fILE: quitenicebooking.class.php around line 1732

add the $post_id and make it look like this – ‘cancel_return’ => !empty($this->settings[‘payment_fail_url’]) ? $this->settings[‘payment_fail_url’] . ’?’ . $post_id: get_site_url(),

This tells paypal to return to your site with /payment_fail_url’?<booking_id><booking_id>

I have no idea why id sends it back twice but what the heck just a small parsing exercises.

FILE: payment_fail_url’.php

Now in payment_fail_url’.php we need to get the booking id and delete it from the database.

At the top add something like this: <?php // Get the whole URL with paramaters $rrm = $_SERVER[‘HTTP_HOST’].$_SERVER[‘REQUEST_URI’].$_SERVER[‘QUERY_STRING’]; //Now find the duplicated booking id and undume it. $pos = strpos($rrm,’?’); if ($pos) { // if there is a ? then do our stuff $len = strlen($rrm); $booking_id = substr($rrm,$pos + 1,$tograb -1 ); // Now we have the booking ID

$tograb = ($len - $pos +1 ) / 2;

global $wpdb;

// Delete booking post $table = $wpdb->prefix . ‘posts’; $wpdb->delete( $table, array( ‘ID’ => $booking_id ) );

// Delete qns_bookings for booking_id

$table = $wpdb->prefix . ‘qns_bookings’; $wpdb->delete( $table, array( ‘post_id’ => $booking_id ) );

} // there was no ? so we just carry on // End code f ?>

That does it – A bit crude but it works

Hope it helps

Hi! My website is working fine before until I got this:

Please enter a valid room price (omit thousands separators and use . as decimal point)

Even though I am entering the correct format…

I think the pricing field is not showing up…

Please open a support ticket and then I’ll be able to help you jotgarcia.

Kind regards

please never mind the issue, I was able to resolve it :)

How do I hide the page header text/title that shows on the accommodation, blog and feature pages? Also, how can I remove the – (tick) after the Guest Name on the testimonials? Thanks so much. This is an awesome template.

The booking engine for this as an accommodation provider is pretty poor, missing several pricing features to offer flexible pricing and encourage sales, namely:

1) The ability to offer discount based on length of stay i.e. £20 off if staying for 2 nights 2) The ability to apply coupons multiple times for multi-room bookings i.e. £20 off per room if staying for 2 nights 3) The ability to apply coupons automatically if an order meets the criteria of the coupon (which would meet criteria 1)

Requests to the support on the site have only come back with sorry this is not possible. There appears to be little commitment to ongoing development of this theme. There appears to be little 3rd party support available elsewhere or any documentation.

Although it has some neat features and presentation, I would avoid using his theme in the future until it has matured, is better documented and more feature-rich.

Hi scottdawson,

Thanks for the feedback.

We do consider feature requests, but please understand we need to draw a line sometimes as it’s simply not feasible for us to implement everyones ideas for how the booking plugin should function.

Kind regards

I just have a few questions before purchasing. And honestly, the previous comment has me a little concerned about how flexible this system will be for my needs. Maybe you can help me.

1.) My rental rates include a tax and cleaning fee (also, depending on if they bring pets, there is an extra cleaning fee). There is a percentage off for more than 4 nights, and more than 7 nights, etc. I don’t need the system to charge people for that, but I need to be able to state that somewhere as my intention is only to take a $100 deposit online, and finish the booking via phone call for the final full payment. Do you think this would bring up any issues?

2.) I’m not concerned with how many adults vs. children there are, but only how many total people. As the max is 6 people per accommodation. Is this a featured that changeable? Can I instead have a field that says “People” for adults, and “Pets: Yes/No” instead of Children?

3.) I noticed the calendar on the demo put dates like DD/MM/YYYY, but in the U.S. I need the dates to be MM/DD/YYYY. Is this a setting in the admin panel?

4.) Can I make a user that will just be able to log in to see what’s booked? I’ll need that for a cleaning crew to know which cabins to clean and when.

5.) Also, for the transition. Let’s say guest A is checking out at 11:00am, and guest B will be checking in at 2:00pm. Will the calendar graphically show a “transition” day or half day for this instance? or, What will it look like? What days are displayed as “unavailable”?

Thank you so much for your time; I really like what I see here!

Hi pvcabins,

Thanks for your interest.

1.) You can give a discount if a guest stays more than a certain number of nights, but only through a coupon code which the guest needs to manually enter when paying (the above comment wants it to be charged automatically).

If you’re only charging a deposit you could add a message somewhere on the booking process to mention the discount, although note it wouldn’t be shown in the pricebreak down unless added via the coupon code.

2.) Yes you can change “Adults” to “People” and “Children” to “Pets”, but the “Pets” selection would still need to be numerical e.g. 1, 2, 3 like it currently is

3.) Yes you can change the date format in the theme options to “MM/DD/YYYY”, “DD/MM/YYYY” or “YYYY/MM/DD”

4.) Yes you can use the standard WordPress user roles to do this

5.) Yes, actualy this isn’t shown in the demo, but we’ve switched the calendar date blocks to diagonal lines precisely for this reason, here’s a screenshot: http://i57.tinypic.com/2lawj2t.png

Kind regards

Can I change the currency into IDR?

Hi adityamega,

Thanks for your interest.

Yes you can display prices in Indonesian Rupiah, but it’s not possible to accept payments via PayPal with IDR since it doesn’t support this currency: https://www.paypal.com/multicurrency

Seasonal price filters to change min stay


I have a new client who needs this functionality.

For example his current min stay is 2 nights.

But if the check-in or check-out days fall on a public holiday or seasonal filtered day he requires the min stay to be 3 nights.

I have read many comments on this with replies indicating it was being investigated, and would be nice.

Will this be included in the next release and when is it due? I ask this as some of the comments are over a year old and this is a deal breaker for him

It would also be very nice to be able to have global seasonal filters as entering it for every room is a real time consuming exercise. Or even an SQL script to do it would help a lot.


Hi wp-fixer,

Thanks for your interest.

Sorry I’m afraid you would need to customize the theme to do both of these things.

Thanks for the suggestions though, I’ll bear them in mind for a future update.

Kind regards

Hi – I have filled out the pricing options on the admin side, but when I save/update and check the live side, the pricing options are not showing on the accommodations page (please see attached screenshot).

I cannot figure out why this would be happening, any help would be appreciated, thanks!
