Where are you storing the booking data?

Hey Paul, thanks for your question,
it's just a very simple business (1 house) and I just want to give visitors an overview of available dates. I can link it with my google calendar, or any other calendar where I can mark booked days as 'occupied'. Thanks a lot, Eva

OK, so I'm assuming you don't have this data stored anywhere right now?

If that's the case, you could use a simple (hidden) Events page and add an 'event' for each booking. Don't add any personal information, perhaps just a booking reference of some kind to help you track them.

Once you have some events saved, you can then use a small version of the Calendar Block to show the free/busy information:

If you are using Fluid Engine you can easily size the calendar to meet your needs. If you are using LayoutEngine (the predecessor to Fluid Engine) then you'll probably need to add a Space Block (or another block!) beside the Calendar Block to make it smaller.

With a few lines of custom CSS, you could style the calendar too.

that looks great Paul, i am gonna give this a try!

You're welcome. The screenshot above was produced by simply adding three events to the Events page (as shown below). I didn't use any code 🙂

Found a resolution on another forum post.. sharing again below, if helpful to anyone else:

 

Add the following to Design > Custom CSS.

/* disable calendar background image link */

.yui3-squarespacecalendar .background-image-link {

  pointer-events : none;

  }

// disable calendar flyout link and hide arrow, uses LESS syntax

.yui3-squarespacecalendar .flyoutitem-link {

  pointer-events : none;
  
  .flyoutitem-link-arrow {
  
    display : none;
    
    }
    
  }

I'm wanting to do something like the Calendar where I can show my order availability. I also would like the calendar to only show 3 months at a time. I added a page to my site to do this and rather than the scheduling blocks, I used events because I wanted a physical calendar. TIA!
