Integrating with Your Website

There are two ways to integrate Lodgix with your website. The best option is to use our WordPress plugin to seamlessly sync your Lodgix account with your WordPress website. In addition to allowing online bookings, the plugin will sync all property data, rates, inquiries, and availability.

If you are not running a WordPress site, or require more design control than is offered from within the plugin, you can embed booking calendars into your site pages. This will allow guests to book directly from your site, but will not sync your property information.

WordPress Plugin

Setting up the Lodgix WordPress plugin is quick and easy. Simply search for and install the plugin, then configure your settings within WordPress and Lodgix. A quick overview is displayed below, but we highly recommend that you review our WordPress Plugin Manual for a more thorough explanation.

  1. Navigate to Settings > Lodgix Settings
  2. Enter your Customer ID and API Key. These are located in Lodgix under Settings > Important Settings.
  3. Click the Save and Regenerate button. This will create a page on your site for every property in your Lodgix account. It will also create a Search Results page, Availability Calendar, Search widget and Featured Rentals widget. Note that these pages will need to be added to your menus manually under Appearance > Menus, and widgets will need to be configured under Appearance > Widgets.
  4. Navigate through the Inventory, Property List, and Property Detail tabs and configure according to your preferences.

Within Lodgix

  1. The Add New Website tab can enable the Lodgix WordPress plugin to be installed on multiple sites.  If set up properly through correct use of the "area manager",  it is possible to manage multiple properties in different locations and market those properties separately on different websites.  Follow the instructions within the Area Manager section of the user manual to get started.
  2. Website URL: Enter the URL of your website
  3. Enabled: This checkbox allows Lodgix to communicate updates to your website.
  4. Verify: Click to verifiy that Lodgix can establish a connection with your site.
  5. Regenerate: Click to recreate all of the Lodgix generated pages on your site. This is often used to manually force a website update when properties are added or modified.
  6. Fetch Property URLs: Populates the URL field in each of your property listings. This links each property in your multi-unit calendar to the appropriate page on your website.
  7. Display on WordPress: Set which areas and properties you want to display on your site. This is especially useful if your inventory is split between multiple websites.
