Launching the shortcode generatorBack to top
The next step is to generate the shortcode to embed the Checkfront booking portal into a page within your website.
If you are still on the Setup screen, look for the next white box labelled Use. Click on the Launch Shortcode Generator button.
Alternatively, you can access the same Shortcode Generator through your Checkfront backend.
Go to Website Integration (Manage > Integrations > Website Integration) and click on the WordPress tile to access the code generator.
You notice at the bottom of the page, just above the Generate Code button, there’s a link to Show more options. These are slightly more advanced features, and we look at those in a subsequent article in this series.
For now, though, let’s look at the basic set of available configurable options.
