WordPress Booking Engine Plugin

There are multiple attributes you can add to the shortcode to control the content. Any of the ‘Booking URL Parameters’ can be added as attributes. EG. [newbook_online force_category_id=”5”]

The guest picker is designed to sit at the top of the page, so if your website features a ‘sticky’ header that remains as you scroll, this may overlap it. Custom CSS will need to be coded to correct this. TIP: when a pop-up is open, a class is added to the HTML tag that can be used to apply a fix.

Every website is unique, so the CSS and JS of the website may be conflicting with the booking engine. If you’re not an experienced web developer, you can speak to our friendly Newbook Creative team for assistance.

This is often caused by clashing or missing jQuery or jQuery UI files. Head to the ‘Newbook Online’ tab within WordPress and try unticking the include jQuery and jQuery UI options.

Another cause can be that the website hosting service has blocked the API file. Check the permissions on the API file or ask your website host to unblock it. The API file can usually be found at

This could be for two reasons:

  1. The instance key is incorrect
  2. The region isn’t set correctly

Please double check this information and if you’re experiencing the same error, our creative team can assist.

The plugin provides some customization, however if you need to change the button text colour, padding or border, you will need to write custom CSS to control them. We don’t recommend this unless you’re experienced with updating CSS.

Put simply, adjusting the border radius changes the edges of your buttons from square edge corners to more rounded edges. So, 0px will produce squares edges, 5px is common and 25px + results in full rounded corners.

Simply right-click on some text on your website, click ‘inspect’. Within the ‘Elements’ section, navigate to the ‘Computed’ tab and your font can be found under the title ‘Font Family’.

Ask your marketing team if your brand color codes are located within your company’s Style Guide. If not, you can easily find out the color code by using a browser plugin like Colorzilla.

Your specific region is located within your Newbook domain name. For example, if your Newbook login URL starts with, then your instance is AP (appap). Appus = US, appau = AU, and appeu = EU

This is available upon request from the Newbook Support team.
