I have an OwnerRez hosted web site, which comes with the "Book Now" tab. I want to add "Inquiry" or "Book Now" widgets on other pages of the web site. (Been trying to add it to the bottom of the Availability Page. I realize it's at the top of all pages, but some folks just don't pay attention so I was trying to put it multiple places.) I know how to generate the code to make a widget, but I don't know how to embed it on an OR website page. (Chris - will also be needing to add the widget created for our Smoky Mountains OR group.)

If you go to Settings > Widgets you will be able to create additional widgets and copy the embed code. Then go to the hosted site page and use the <> buttons to enter source mode on the Intro or Conclusion section and paste the code in there.

I would recommend thinking about it before adding a bunch of more widgets though -- I know a lot of marketing blogs online talk about plastering calls to action everywhere. But vacation rentals are more of a big ticket item in my opinion and people want to see the information, make a decision, and then they'll find the book now button which is there, or right on the property page have the booking widget. They're not going to bounce out of the site if they can't find the widget in .03 seconds like they would for a $5 thingamajig.

For the Smoky Mountains share widget, create the page on the hosted site and then let me know and I'll add the shared widgets for you.
