Embedding in WordPress

This is a guide on how to embed your AppointmentThing booking calendar into a WordPress site. Clients can then easily make appointments with you from the comfort of their browser.

Your first step is to copy the embed code from AppointmentThing. We've provided an easy guide here.
After you have the code copied to your clipboard, follow one of these guides for embedding in a page or post.

Embedding in a page

Log in to your Wordpress site. From the Dashboard, click All Pages, from the navigation menu.


Choose the page that you want to edit, and you’ll be taken to the WordPress visual editor.


Click the "plus" icon to add a block in the area where you wish to place the booking form. Note that if you have chosen the "Popup Widget" option, the button will appear in the lower right corner of your website, regardless of where you place the code.


In the interface that appears next, you will see a "Custom HTML" choice under the "Formatting" section. You can also just search for "HTML" in the search window. Click "Custom HTML".


You will see a block for inserting your custom HTML. Click on the input field and paste in the code that you copied from AppointmentThing using our easy guide.


Click the "Preview" button in the upper right corner of the window to launch a preview of the widget in your Facebook page/post. When you are satisifed, click the "Publish" button in the upper right corner of the window, and your AppointmentThing booking embed will be LIVE!

Hi there 👋

We made AppointmentThing available to everyone on June 1st. Thanks so much for trying it out!

Prior to the launch, we were busy testing.. testing.. testing, correcting, then more testing.. testing.. testing and correcting.

Upcoming changes
Over the next couple of months, we’ll be gathering user feedback and (of course) be using the tools ourselves. Our testing and correcting will continue, and during this time we hope to learn a lot about the following:

  • What would be nice to have
  • What we need to improve right away
  • What needs a bit more explanation
  • Any issues or anything not working correctly

As a result, you’ll probably see us moving things around a bit: changing labels here and there, adding new functionality and options, updating tutorials, etc. It’s all part of the process.

How you can help
If you experience any issues or bugs, please let us know about them by sending an email to todos@appointmentthing.com. Also, please share anything you think we could improve upon or new functionality you wish we had.

Thanks :)
