This article covers:


Locating where to customise your public page

You can find your page settings in the top right-hand corner of your public page:

Public page screen example with an arrow pointing at the 'Customise page' button, located in the top-right hand corner of the page.

Once selected, the public page settings appear:

Customise page settings example, highlighting options such as Public page URL, HTML code, web search results checkbox, default language, show availability checkbox, show login button checkbox, schedule row count, link back to website, Google Analytics ID, header background colour, logo image, and banner image.


Changing your page URL

You can change your public page's URL by selecting Change your page URL

Customise pages settings with arrow pointing at the 'Change your page URL' link, highlighting where users can change their public page URL.

Changing the URL:

  • Only change the link your customers use to visit your page.

  • We hide the URL you use to edit your schedule(s) from your customers and display it only to you and/or your team members.

πŸ’‘ Please contact support via live chat or email support@bookwhen.com if you want to change your admin page URL.


HTML code for your page

This section refers to Button link, Standard link and Embedded iframe codes. Each link represents a different code for you to use on your website.

Select the code type you'd like, then copy and paste it into your site:

Customise page settings screen with an arrow pointing at the 'HTML code for your page' section.


Include in web search results

This section lets you control whether your page appears on search engines like Google or Bing.

Customise page settings screen with arrow pointing at the 'Include in web search results' checkbox.
  • Tick the Include in web search results checkbox if you want your page to appear in web searches.

  • Uncheck the box to 'tell' search engines to exclude your pages from their results.

πŸ’‘ Further context:

This checkbox controls whether or not Bookwhen includes a "NO INDEX" tag in the HTML for the page.

  • Search engines continuously check pages to detect any changes to their settings. This process is controlled externally, and how quickly you make changes to this setting within Bookwhen depends on how often the search engine checks the page. This could be more often for pages clicked through from a search result or less often if the page isn't linked from anywhere.

πŸ’‘ Please note:

  • Including the public page in search engines is only available on paid plans (Lite and above).

  • We (Bookwhen) cannot guarantee that the page will be made searchable or removed immediately.


Public Page default language

This section lets you select the language in which you wish to display your page in search results (Google, Bing, etc.).

Customise page settings with arrow pointing at 'Public page default language' settings, where users can set the default language of their page.

  • This only applies if you decide to include your page in web search results.

  • The language you select here will appear when customers visit your page, but they can amend it for their personal view.


Show availability

This section lets you decide whether your public page shows the number of spaces and tickets available:

Customise page settings with arrow pointing at the 'Show availability' checkbox setting, where users can choose to hide event availability.

  • Check the box to show the availability, and uncheck it to hide it (to show it only when the event is almost full).


Show the login button

This setting lets you hide your customers' Login button:

Customise page settings with an arrow pointing at the 'Show the login button' checkbox, where users can choose to hide/unhide the login button on their public page.

  • We recommend keeping this option checked if you offer passes to allow customers to view the status of their passes.


Schedule row count

This section allows you to control how many rows of your schedule you'd like to show on your page before the Show more button appears at the bottom of the schedule.

Customise page settings highlighting the 'Schedule row count' settings, where users can set the default number of rows that appear on their scheduling list.

Link back to your website

If you'd like to redirect your customers back to your website or social media page, you can add the URL to this section:

Customise page settings screen with arrow pointing at the 'Link back to your website' field, where users can add their website URL.

Once your customers complete a booking, they will see a Return to website button. For example:
