Join Carrie Dils for an in-depth discussion in this video Using Jetpack for reservations, part of WordPress and Genesis DIY: Restaurant Website.
- When it comes to online restaurant reservations…with WordPress, there are several options available.…To enable customers to make reservations from my website,…I've opted to use the forms module in the Jetpack plug-in.…We'll get started by installing…and activating it on our site.…Once you've activated Jetpack, there's one…more step to complete the process…and that's connecting to wordpress.com.…You'll be able to sign up for one here.…If you don't already have an account at wordpress.com,…you'll be able to sign up for a free account here.…I'm already logged in, so I'll just approve this connection.…
The first thing I like to do when I install Jetpack…is to head over to the settings…and deactivate any modules that…I don't currently want to use.…To do that I can search for active modules,…uncheck any I need, in this case the contact form,…and then deactivate.…There's no need to have modules active that I'm not using.…Now to use this contact form as a reservations form,…I'm going to head over to my reservations page.…
