Widgets: it’s time for change


The time has come for you to change widget. Our classic version has served us all well for years, but tech is moving on and so must we.

Don’t panic though, you’ll be moving to a brand new, improved widget that comes with all the features you need to further boost your bookings:

The new and improved widget is:

Mobile optimised
73% of all ResDiary online bookings are made on mobile. Our old widget was functional on mobile, but the new one has been specially designed for mobile use. It makes booking on a smartphone much easier, improving conversion rates.

Good lookin’:
The new widget can be customised by fonts, colours, and styles that match your branding, as well as allowing you to personalise the details you ask from your customers.

Better functionality:
Want to get your customers to book into a specific area? The new widget does that. Want to direct your customers to a specific page on your site when they complete a booking? It does that too. And lots more.

Am I on the old or new version?

The old version has “powered by ResDiary” written on it. Most of the new versions just have “ResDiary” on them. It also has 1-2-3-4-5 written across the top. Like the one on the right. If you don’t have these things, you’re all set up with the new one, and don’t need to do a thing.

If you’re on the old version, get in touch and we’ll upgrade you to a new widget, designing it and embedding it on your site. We’re providing this service free of charge until the end of 2018, so get in touch before it becomes chargeable.

Please note: we’ll be winding down the old version in the coming months, and as the tech becomes obsolete, we won’t be able to support it. Please get in touch as soon as possible and we’ll ensure you’re updated in plenty of time.
