  • Booking bar - You can add a bar with a booking button to the top of your website pages.

Embed your scheduler

Tips for using other website builders

Drupal

Change your text format to Full HTML to add custom HTML, then add the code snippet from Acuity. 

GoDaddy

Follow GoDaddy’s instructions for adding custom HTML to add the code Acuity automatically generates.

Ionos

Add Acuity's automatically generated embed code to a Widget/HTML element. You may need to view your scheduler in Page view to check that it’s functioning correctly.

To prompt Ionos to display your embedded scheduler to clients on mobile devices, disable the option to only display optimized content on smartphones and tablets.

Leadpages

Use the Leadpages HTML widget to add the code snippet from Acuity.

Shopify

Use the HTML editor to add the code from Acuity to one of your pages. Save your changes before trying to view your new scheduler.

Vistaprint/Webs.com

Use the custom HTML feature to add the automatically generated code from Acuity to your website.

Weebly

Drag the Weebly Embed Code element onto your web page, then add Acuity’s automatically generated code to the widget.

Wix

Follow Wix’s steps for adding the HTML element to your site. When you’re ready to add code to the HTML element, use the code snippet that Acuity generates for you.

Note: It isn’t possible to embed your scheduler if you’re using the Wix Artificial Design Intelligence instead of the editor.

If the frame holding your embedded scheduler is shorter than the scheduler itself, some mobile devices may experience glitches when booking. To prevent this, use the Wix mobile editor to drag the bottom of the embedded scheduler’s frame down until the entire scheduler is visible. Make sure the bottom of the scheduler is visible throughout the booking process.

WordPress

To embed your scheduler on your WordPress site, use the WordPress Text Editor to add the embed code from Acuity.

To embed your scheduler:

  1. Get the embed code for your scheduler by going to the Scheduling page link panel, clicking Embed Scheduler, then clicking Copy.
  2. Use the WordPress Text Editor to paste the code you’ve copied to one of your pages.
Note: You can embed your scheduler on sites built using WordPress, but not on sites hosted by WordPress.com. Sites hosted by WordPress.com have URLS that end in wordpress.com. If this affects you, add a direct link to your client scheduling page instead.

Zenfolio

Follow Zenfolio’s instructions for creating a custom page and adding and embedding code. Use the code from Acuity to embed the scheduler. 

Customize the booking button and booking bar

Fonts and other styles in the booking button and booking bar generally match the default for your website.

You can update the wording of the button or bar by editing the code snippet Acuity provides.

The booking bar and booking button change color to match the color of buttons and accents on your scheduler.

To change the color of buttons and accents on your scheduler:

  1. In Acuity, click Customize appearance.
  2. Use the Button/accent color drop-down menu to choose a color.
  3. Click Save changes.
Tip: To make website navigation for the broadest audience possible, it’s important to keep accessibility in mind during the design process. Learn more about creating accessible site content.
