The Restaurant Booking particle allows you to manage your online reservations. It is dedicated to restaurants but can be used for many other sectors of activity. This particle uses a platform dedicated to forms, Simple Form, which makes the interface between your site and your mail. Simple Form fits easily into Gantry 5 particles.
This particle follows the general principle of the "Booking Form" particle of RocketTheme presented with the Sienna template.
For Gantry 5, template Hydrogen.
For other templates, unzip the file and do a manual installation
Don't forget to add these 2 lines
in your custom.scss (/templates/g5_hydrogen/custom/scss/custom.scss)
or create this file and insert these 2 lines with the help of your text editor (/templates/g5_hydrogen/custom/scss/custom.scss)See Demo
The particles in English or in French are technically identical: Only the interface of the particle need to be translated (yalm file). The twig and scss files are similar.
Simple Form usage
On the Simple Form site, you enter your email address to receive a code called token. Warning This email address is the one to which all requests via the form will be sent.
You will quickly receive an email with 3 important informations
- Your Token (a series of numbers and letters of more than 30 characters) you will enter in a field of the particle
- 1 link to personalize the email received with each use of the form
https://getsimpleform.com/instructions?api_token=VOTRE_TOKEN_ICI. We will see below an example of customization but the default form remains readable.
- 1 link to see all the messages received with each use of the form
https://getsimpleform.com/messages?api_token=VOTRE_TOKEN_ICI. You know that it exists but his usage is not necessary since you find all informations of reservation on your mail.
- UNZIP the file on your computer.
- You will find some directories (particles, scss, js, images)
- Copy the directories (including files) to
root/templates/TEMPLATE_DIR/custom/via your FTP client (like FileZilla)
