    The price on the Customer Cabinet only shows the price for the service but not the extra service prices.Though, it shows in the customers, appointments and payment tabs.

    Hi,

    Customers will see the service price, the final price isn't displayed in the cabinet.

    The customer cabinet is designated for customers - so only customers with associated WP user accounts will be able to access the cabinet. Please check the customers menu if the WP user account you are logged in with is associated with any account (User column).

    Regarding the last inquiry, please provide more details about it and send some screenshots to support@ladela.com

    Hi Suport Team,

    regading to management with personal data and possbility to delete their personal details so I have a question. Probably we do not want any client to delete or change the their details if is in Black List (Customer's Group plugin). Is there anything to prevent the data in Black List? GDPR know something called "legitimate interest" so I probalby want to keep data of clients in Black List.

    Hi Wan, if you want to rename this option you will need to make changes to a file or rename it with some tools like Poedit or Locotranslate.

    Hi. Referring to the problem mentioned by Alexandr Chebotarev above, I found that when a new customer registers on my website and a new user is created, the user isn't immediately added into the customer list, and therefore the customer cabinet shows "You don't have permissions to view this content."

    However when this new user makes his first booking with Bookly, he is added into the customer list and the customer cabinet works.

    Is there a way to add the new user immediately into the customer list once he has registered on my website?

    Many thanks.

    So the cabinet is not available for new users who login using Facebook plugin?

    What about a customer who was a wp-user but then starts using Facebook to login? Is their access to cabinet then removed?

    Hi Wilson, You will need to add manually these records in the customers menu or they will need to book appointments in order to have access to the cabinet.

    Hi Pylon, 1) If the customer record isn't associated with WP user account, then these customers won't have access the customers cabinet.

    2) It won't be removed, they will still be able to access the customer cabinet.

    Is there a hook or a way to change the wording of "You don't have permissions to view this content. "

    For those with this same question, this message can be changed in the template file for this plugin. It actually does not show up in the language files. I changed it to something like "You have not scheduled any appointments yet,  etc etc." Then of course, you need to have a way to note that you edited a template file in case of plugin updates.

    Thanks, though, Bookly for your prompt response. I think Bookly is great!

    I was wondering if there was easy way to modify the design?

    The login fields look terrible..
    I would like to have a small separate login box in the sidebar for example, or at least nicely aligned and centered.

    The cabinet itself looks fine.

    Also there is no "logout" or "lost password" menu option for the customer. It goes straight to the WP site which also looks terrible.
    I rather had a separate page that is displayed after a customer logs out.

    I believe someone had a solution, i just can't find it anymore, was for a different plugin I guess.

    Hi, the plugin uses WP standard functionality to log in/out WP users. The design of the login form depends on the WordPress theme that you're using, it's not rendered by the plugin.

    I used ThemeMyLogin plugin to create a custom login/logout page.
