How the Booking Calendar Looks on Your Site
By default, the
[ssa_booking] shortcode displays a list of Appointment Types (if you have more than one) for your customers to choose from.
Use the Reorder button in the SSA Appointment Types page to organize by dragging and dropping elements in the list. The way they’re ordered is how they’re displayed to your visitors with the [ssa_booking] shortcode.
Display a Specific Booking Calendar

It should look something like this:

Default Scheduling Page
After installation and activation of the plugin, we also create a default booking page. Find it in Pages > Schedule an Appointment page. Or, www.yoursite.com/appointments.
This page includes only the Booking Calendar – it doesn’t include the header, footer, and/or sidebar for your site. This page also does not have any links back to any other page of your site.
We recommend you not use this default booking page for front-end use by customers.
When a theme or layout is too complex to display the Booking Calendar, this will be a reliable way to book. Or, help the support team troubleshoot.
