Integrating a booking system to a WordPress business directory

This video demonstrates how to integrate a booking system to the business directory on your WordPress website using premium plugins CM Business Directory and CM Appointments Booking. The CM Business Directory is a directory listing plugin that allows to create a business directory website with descriptions of businesses. It will help those businesses find customers and opportunities, and customers can find service providers in a particular niche or category. The plugin CM Appointments Booking allows to build a WordPress booking system on your site. Integration of these two plugins lets business owners add a booking form and calendar to their business pages, so the customers can book available appointments. In this straightforward step-by-step tutorial, we show how to assign booking calendars to businesses and how business owners can manage their calendars and current bookings without accessing your site back-end.

How this page was made?

First of all, you need to connect your Vimeo or Wistia account to your site, so you could import the videos. It is done using API. You can learn more detailed about how to obtain it in this User Guide

Now you can import videos to your site. To organize your videos, you can create courses. Each course can include a set of lessons with videos. So, let's start with creating a course. It can be easily done on the "Courses" page.

Then we create a lesson and assign it to the course. Each course can have multiple lessons. We can assign videos to the lesson right on its editing page or on the import step.

Now we go to the importing videos page. There you choose the Vimeo or Wistia account and display the list of videos on the channel. Then you choose the lesson where to import videos and mark needed videos. The videos will be imported after clicking on the button "Import chosen videos".

Each video can be edited after importing.

You can create more lessons with videos using the same method.

Get more details about creating and editing courses, lessons and videos in this Use Case Guide.

Displaying Lesson on the Front-end

There are a few ways how to display courses, lessons and videos on the front-end.

Each created course, lesson and video have a permalink, which you can put anywhere on the front-end to direct the user.

On that demo page, we used the shortcode [сmvl-playlist] with a few parameters for displaying the specific lesson:

[сmvl-playlist view="playlist" layout="bottom" lesson="2468" navbar="0" searchbar="0" ajax="1"]

This way, we displayed the specific lesson using the "Playlist" view with the list of videos displayed below the current video. We disabled the navigation bar and search bar, and enabled the ajax mode.
