Salon Booking System 3.20



we’ve just released a new version of Salon Booking System plugin where we’ve added two brand new features and some improvements.


Holidays rules from back-end calendar

Now you are able to “block” specific times slots from the daily view of the back-end calendar.

Just click and drag over the time rows you want to block and then click on “Block these rows” red button.

To unlock that rows just click over the “Unlock these rows” button.



When you block one or more time rows is like adding a new Holidays rule, that means that those time slots will be not more available for booking.


Default back-end calendar view

We’ve added a new option inside “Settings > General” called “Default calendar daily view” where you can specify which views
you want to be as default view for the back-end calendar.




Administration UI improvements

We’ve lightly improved the UI of the back-end settings and calendar in order to make the interface more clear and usable especially on mobile and tablet devices.


Bug Fixes

We’ve also fixed some bugs that you can checkout on the changelog of this version.



We hope you enjoy this new release.

Salon Booking 3.17.1 is available


we’ve made a minor release for Salon Booking that is 3.17.1

In this version there is one big news.

All the translations available from our Transifex account, generously made by the community, are now bundled inside the Salon Booking plugin.

That means that you don’t need to download the single translation from Transifex or request it from us.

Just set your favourite language on your WordPress install and automatically Salon Booking will use that language ( if available ).

It’s important to consider that as the translations are managed for free by the community of Transifex we cannot guarantee for their completeness or correctness.

Anyway you can always correct or complete a translation on your own website using a plugin like “LocoTranslate” or “Polylang” etc.

That said we encourage our user to contribute to Salon Booking translation here on Transifex:
