ABPro link plug-in
You can add a link to ABPro into a content page.
This might be used where you describe a resource then have a 'Book Now!' link to go to ABPro. The link can open ABPro in a specific mode, date, grid time range, etc. Because the link can have several options this plug-in was developed to assist in creating it.
With the plug-in enabled a link can be added to a page with something as simple as..
Here shown here as an image so Joomla won't make it into a link.
Here in action..
In this case the booking screen opens with settings based on the ABPro Configuration settings.
The plug-in allows you to override the default settings..
Fields left empty in the plug-in setup screen will default to the component settings.
You can also override in the tag itself so you can have multiple different links on the same page..
Or in a popup..
