Usage


After obtaining the API key and adding it to the API Settings, all the data will now be available in your Wordpress admin, which is then available for customizing on the front-end.

The main page which is the one configured in the Page Settings  is where all the services are displayed and for instance where they can be filtered by categories, type or location.

The widget can be widely used, for example if you want to display only one specific service in your webpage, this can be done by navigating to the Services option. Then, click on the service you need and it will take you to the page which is already generated, that way you can use the link within your webpage so your customers can navigate and book your services without the need to use the filter page.
