Schedulista allows clients to book your services online based on the durations of your services, the appointment times you've set, and your availability. We provide a scheduling page with a URL unique to your business name that clients visit to see your list of services and schedule with you.

You might want clients to book right from your own website rather than going anywhere else. Embedding the scheduler on your WordPress site may help with this.

Note on embedding a scheduler

This is an advanced feature and requires editing your website's HTML. If you have a web designer, email them the HTML code for the scheduler widget and a link to these instructions.

Before you start, you should determine if embedding the scheduler is your best option.

The WordPress platform offers three options for websites:

  • WordPress.com - a free website service hosted by WordPress
  • WordPress.com with a paid subscription plan - a website hosted by WordPress that offers more features and flexibility. The ability to add plugins and HTML to your site is available with the Business or eCommerce plan subscriptions.
  • WordPress.org - a free website platform that provides the most flexibility to create and develop your own "self-hosted" website. WordPress.org websites require a third-party site hosting service like GoDaddy, Namecheap, Bluehost, etc.

Your scheduler can only be embedded on WordPress.com sites with the paid Business or eCommerce plan subscriptions or on WordPress.org sites. HTML code limitations prevent the scheduler widget code from working on sites on the Premium, Personal, or Free plans. Find out which option is best for what you need.

We also offer a WordPress plugin to add the scheduler to your site that can work with many different themes designed for WordPress.

Embedding the scheduler on your WordPress website with HTML

On a WordPress.com Business or eCommerce site or a WordPress.org site:

(1) Use the HTML text editor for the page where you'd like to embed the scheduler

(2) In Schedulista, go to Settings > Add to your website

(3) Scroll down to the Embed your scheduler in a website (as a widget) section

(4) Copy the HTML code to your clipboard

(5) Back on your WordPress site, paste the code into the page text editor where you want the widget to appear

(6) Save the page
