  • Here is an example of code you can add, replace with your own API Keys – [bokun bokun_id="access_key" api_key="secret_key"]

Customising Product Pages with ACF and Elementor Pro

  • To customise the look of product pages we recommend you use custom fields – Works great with ACF and Elementor Pro.
  • Activate ACF and create a Field Group – point it to the new Experience Custom Post type. When you activate ACF it will over-ride the fields of the 3 template demos.
  • You can use the following fields: title, cover_photo, bokun_calendar, quick_details, description, google_map, inclusions, exclusions, itinerary.
  • Extra fields can be added into Experiences and they will not be overwritten when you generate products.

FAQs

Let’s say for example you want to add a gallery to your experiences using ACF Pro

  • You must have already assigned an ACF field group to your experiences.
  • Simply create a new field – Gallery for example – assign field group to gallery.
  • Save.
  • Add the gallery field into your Elementor Template for your experiences.
  • Edit the product you would like to add gallery images.
  • Even when you generate new products, this field will not be overwritten!
